I offer fine art nature and landscape images for sale in the following formats...
MUSEUM-GRADE LUMACHROME HD ACRYLIC PRINTS
Stunning Lumachrome HD Acrylic Prints set the bar for exquisite high-end photographic fine artwork, and are the contemporary standard to be found in famed galleries and world-class museums. Prized for vibrant color and intricate detail these pieces exhibit amazing definition that makes it feel as if you could step right into the scene. To achieve this, a transparency of the image infused with rare light capturing iridium particles is set over a pure white backing, then face mounted to optically clear artist grade acrylic. The result is an elegant presentation with gorgeous color and depth that will even appear backlit when placed beneath overhead halogen lighting. The piece arrives ready for display with protective backing and a handmade Italian ROMA float mount. This provides a sleek, modern appearance which allows the work to project outward from your wall. Though additional framing is not necessary, it is an option if you would prefer a border around the image. Please inquire prior to placing your order if this might be of interest.
While certainly an investment, Lumachrome HD Acrylics offer the pinnacle of fine art luxury decor. These prints are guaranteed to wow casual viewers and connoisseurs alike, and will provide an heirloom to be cherished for generations.
CHROMALUXE FINE ART METAL PRINTS
With colors that pop and eye catching 3D-like sharpness, Chromaluxe Fine Art Metal Prints are a highly popular, budget friendly alternative to top of the line acrylics. These beautiful works are created using a process known as dye sublimation, where archival ink is essentially baked into a specially coated sheet of aluminum to produce an image of amazing vibrance, clarity and tonal gradient. Metal prints come with supportive aluminum struts on the back to prevent warping, and are ready for display with an attached hanger and styrofoam float mount. No additional framing is required, and the exceptionally lightweight nature of these pieces eliminates the need for heavy duty anchoring hardware. The prints are waterproof, scratch and fade resistant, boasting an archival rating of over 65 years with appropriate placement and care.
Chromaluxe Metal Prints are a wonderful option if you are seeking an attractive piece of fine art sure to elicit lots of compliments, and will provide a wonderfully lifelike glimpse of nature to enhance your office or home.
FUJI SILVER HALIDE FINE ART LOOSE PRINTS
If you prefer a more classical look but still want truly archival fine art quality, chromogenic silver halide prints can't be beat. Unlike your standard ink jet, chromogenic digital printing works much like the traditional photographic process from the days of film. Only now high tech lasers are used to expose the image on special paper composed of light sensitive silver halide crystals. Since the image is essentially burned into the paper rather than reproduced with ink, the result is a beautiful print of incredibly accurate color and clarity that will last many decades with proper care. Please note that these prints will arrive loose and do require additional matting and framing. I highly recommend working with a reputable professional frame shop to insure that your investment is well protected and cared for, and that can assist you in choosing the perfect frame moulding and mat color to match your taste. I'm also happy to help locate a quality framer that is local to you, and will reach out to them personally before offering a recommendation to be sure that they are using high-grade archival materials that will stand the test of time.
Beginning in 2020, most of my new work will be released as limited edition prints. There are a couple of reasons for this. First, I am at a point in my career where I am being accepted to higher end art shows, and many require that photography be sold in small editions. I am working to expand my catalog for exhibit at these venues. Also it brings the assurance that your investment in one of my fine art pieces will only increase in value over time. As an edition draws closer to selling out, my price will increase significantly, and in turn so will the value of those prints held by early collectors. Once an edition sells out, that image will be retired and never printed again. You can take pride in knowing that you own a unique piece of art, one of a hundred or less in existence worldwide.
I offer two edition types: Limited and Collector's Special Edition. Limited editions are released as a series of 100 pieces total, regardless of size or medium (Acrylic, Metal, or Silver Halide Print.) Each work is digitally signed and numbered. Limited editions can be found mixed throughout the galleries on this site, and will be noted in photo descriptions. You can also enter "Limited Edition" in the Search for a complete listing.
The Collector's Special Edition is my top of the line offering of select works. While also available in your choice of medium, these editions come only as larger sized prints (20"x30" and up) and are limited to a run of 25 pieces plus one Artist's Proof designated for each medium. (28 pieces total.) Artist's Proofs come digitally signed and are numbered accordingly as "AP #1 of 3", "AP #2 of 3", or "AP #3 of 3". They also include the original signature card and a personalized hand written letter detailing my reflections on the photo. If you might be interested in an Artist's Proof, please inquire in advance of your order for pricing and availability.
Collector's Special Edition artwork is found exclusively in its respective gallery on this site. Click here to view.
All edition pieces come with the authentications below.
To insure the highest archival and authentication standards, I sign all fine art pieces digitally as part of the printing process. Open edition works will include a digital replication of my handwritten signature in the bottom right corner of the print. Limited and Collector's Special Editions will also include a digital signature in this placement, along with the edition number specific to that piece. (Example- #1/25.)
Certificate of Authenticity
Also included with Limited and Collector's Special Edition pieces is a Certificate of Authenticity. This official documentation lists the print name, medium, date, edition number, and signature. I personally fill this out by hand at the time of purchase, and it will be securely mailed seperate from your artwork.
As noted above, the Artist's Proof pieces will also include the original signature card for your chosen medium. Upon the release of each image in this special collection, I will fill out three cards (one for Lumachrome HD Acrylic prints, one for Chromaluxe Metals, and one for Fuji Silver Halide Fine Art loose prints) and provide information on the release date, medium, work title and number in that edition. I then hand sign the card and make a high resolution scan which will be used to create the digital signature which adorns every piece for that medium in the edition. Along with an accompanying handwritten personal letter, it's an extra detail that makes your artwork truly one of a kind.
PRODUCTION & SHIPPING
I have spent considerable time and effort seeking out the very best high end fine art printers in the country with whom to partner and create works of impeccable quality and standard. Once you have placed your order, I will immediately begin working with my lab reps and be in contact with them, and with you, throughout the entire printing process. Each piece is handmade individually by professional technicians with unwavering attention to detail. With this in mind, there is a bit of a time commitment required, but it is worth it for the quality of workmanship involved. You can generally expect loose prints and metals to arrive within 1-3 weeks of your order, while acrylics may take 3-5 weeks. Again, I work with small artisan labs that specialize in the printing of these respective mediums as opposed to high volume print houses, so much of this depends on their current workload. If you are in need of a piece sooner, please contact me prior to placing your order and I will see if there is any way to expedite the process. Shipping is something that I always cover complimentary out of gratitude for your patronage, and artwork will be securely packaged and sent directly from the lab. I will provide you with tracking information as soon as your order is en route, and mail additional documentation at that time.
I take great pride in the creation of my artwork, and I want you to take equal satisfaction in ownership. Upon delivery, please take some time to carefully examine your print, and notify me immediately of any defects at all. While I stand behind my partner labs and have full confidence in their workmanship, human error can occur, as can damage in transit. I will make sure that any such issue is rectified right away. Beyond this, I offer a 30 day total satisfaction guarantee. I want you to feel good about both your purchase and the experience of working with me. If for any reason within that first month of receipt you simply decide that the photo isn't a good fit, I will be happy to either refund your investment or work with you to find a piece that better suits your needs. All that I will ask in this situation is that you cover the cost of return shipping with insurance and tracking. Please contact me in advance and we will work together to make things right.
