Silver Gelatin Print
Silver Gelatin Prints are printed in one of two sizes, 8×10 or 11×14 inch prints. These images were exposed on film, processed in my darkroom and then printed in the same darkroom by me. They are not sent out to a commercial lab. Each image is printed on fiber based paper and then processed using archival procedures to ensure the longevity of the print. After the toning of the print it is mounted on museum rag board and then signed. On the back of each print is a stamp identifying the print title, year of the negative, the print date, and edition number. All of the prints at this time are open edition, meaning there is no set number of prints to be completed. The prints are mounted on 14×18 inch board for 8×10 prints and 16×20 inch for 11×14 prints.
Archival Pigment Ink Print
Archival Pigment Ink Prints are printed on two sizes of paper depending on the size of the final image. I use either 8×10 paper for images no larger than approximately 5×7 inches and 11×14 inch paper for images no larger than approximately 8×10. This ensures there is room for a border on the image allowing for a signature, title, and information blocks detailing the edition, print number and copyright. All the prints I sell are digitally prepared, fine-tuned and printed by me personally, on my own Epson pigment printer — not by a commercial lab. Each image is printed using the latest archival inks and fine art inkjet papers.
SHIPPING Shipping is charged separately. Print orders can take up to a month (if I am traveling) but will usually be delivered in a couple of weeks.
A PERSONAL NOTE
I know it can be something of a stretch to buy a fine-art photograph after having only seen a small image on a computer screen. I too prefer to look at framed prints on a gallery wall. For those who may have some doubts, there are various downloads available of many of the images to allow you to live with the image before making the leap to a print.
