The Fine Art Print


The expressive fine art print is the finale of the photographic process. The physical print embodies all the aspects in the final visualization of the artists’ creative endeavor. Edward Weston said “the print, is but a duplication of all I saw and felt through the camera.”

Indeed the expressive fine art print represents the embodiment of the final step in creating a work of art in the photographic medium. While digital displays of a photograph can be more convenient in sharing and reproduction, the limitations of the digital display do not capture the nuances of tonality, texture, light, depth, and the delicate nuances embodied in the final fine art print. John Sexton, a well known and accomplished fine art photographer noted that, “Due to the amount of extremely fine detail in this image, it is a greater challenge than usual to accurately convey the subtlety of tone in the original print as you read this on your electronic device.”

The prints presented here represent the culmination in creating a work of art for your viewing pleasure and provide an elegant statement for your living space. All prints are created using the finest materials and archival processes to ensure the longevity of the art work. All of the prints at this time are open edition, meaning there is no set number of prints to be completed.

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. Each print contains information 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 8.5×11 paper for images no larger than approximately 6×9 inches and 11×14 inch paper for images no larger than approximately 9×12. This ensures there is room for a border on the image allowing for a signature. These prints are not mounted to allow for personalized matting and framing by the purchaser. 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 paper.

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.


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.

As has always been the case with the photographic process, there are many collectors and lovers of photography who are still coming to terms with the arrival of digital prints. Some even wonder if a digital print should really be considered a true photograph, given the potential to radically tweak, manipulate and modify an original photographic image on a computer.

For me, photography – no matter the process – is merely a means to accurately translate my artistic vision onto paper. I treasure the special magic of the photographic moment — whether the photo is recorded on film or digitally — and the integrity of the image produced. I only use the methods or techniques needed to arrive at the image I visualized at the time of exposure. Art is personal both for the artist and the audience and I try to keep my images as true to my personal vision as possible.
