I offer fine photographic prints of the highest quality, and I'd like to offer a few words of explanation on the reasons behind the quality level that I'm able to achieve in my prints.
You're probably aware that photographs viewed on the internet are only a pale shadow of an actual high-quality print. Subtle details and nuances of color are impossible to convey in a low-resolution web image, and the sight of a large, crisply printed image viewed in person is breathtaking in comparison.
The vast majority of photographs are made on 35mm film. While this is fine for small prints and newspaper reproduction, it doesn't convey the wealth of details that can only be brought about by a larger film format. Many photographers using 35mm film do indeed enlarge their photographs a great deal, with the result that image quality suffers drastically. I am not one of those photographers. Instead, I use exclusively large format and medium format film, and I can make big enlargements that retain a wealth of detail and richness of color and tone. For example, I routinely use 4x5" transparency film: this film has nearly FIFTEEN TIMES the image size of a frame of 35mm film. My panoramic images originate from a transparency 7" long. You can imagine the great increase of detail that can be portrayed by using such a large piece of film! Of course, the time, effort, and cost expended in producing these types of photographs is much greater than that needed for 35mm photography, but the results prove that the effort is well-spent.
After choosing only the very best transparencies for printmaking, I personally drum scan each one to obtain the ultimate level of detail and sharpness. Each transparency must be individually mounted using a special oil, and scanned to extract the full detail, highlight, and shadow. After carefully processing the scans, I personally create each print individually, using all archival materials. I don't skimp on cost or take shortcuts. I handle every detail of print creation, with the result that I maintain complete control over quality and appearance of each and every print, one at a time. Prints are created on 100% cotton rag fine art paper; depending on the image that you choose, I use either Museo Silver Rag (light gloss, and very similar to a tradional lab print) or Ultrasmooth (matte cotton rag with slight ivory tone, best suited to pastels, fog/mist images, etc). If you order a matted print, I use an attractive off-white archival mat, suitable for any decor.
Prices are listed below. Please note that image sizes are approximate, since many photographs don't correspond to these exact dimensions. The longest side of the actual printed image is used in these calculations; for example, a 16x20 image size may actually be 15x20 or 17x20 upon actual measurement. Not every photograph is available in every size; please email me if you have questions on specific images and availability.
