THE FINE PRINT
The fine print is the last step in the creative process. It is the culmination of every decision made in the field and in the studio expressed in its highest form. It offers an unveiled glimpse into the world as seen through the eyes of the artist. Translating the beauty and magic of nature through a two-dimensional medium is a difficult task. I feel I have succeeded when a print transcends perceptions and mental constructions of place, and graces the viewer with wonder, light and warmth of something greater.
Ninety percent of my creative work is done in the field; the final ten percent is accomplished in the digital darkroom. I start with a raw file (or film scan) and then fine tune the exposure, color and luminosity until I have a file that expresses my vision while still maintaining the integrity of the scene as I experienced it.
ECONOMY OPEN EDITION PRINTS
Economy prints offer the best compromise between print quality and price. I can assure you they look fantastic. Use the automated shopping cart and choose the size that fits your needs. There are three different papers to choose from: luster, glossy and metallic.
FUJIFLEX OPEN EDITION PRINTS
For years I have printed on Fuji Crystal Archive FujiFlex, also known as "Supergloss". The rich, luminescent color and three-dimensional quality of this print surface is unmatched in the printing industry. This light sensitive photo paper is exposed in a digital photographic enlarger called a Chromira using Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) and then processed in normal darkroom chemistry. The result is a continuous-tone, true photographic print of superlative quality. To make framing and handling easier, each image is printed with a white 5/8” border; therefore the actual image size will be very slightly smaller than the final dimension of the print. This is not part of my automated ordering system. If you are interested in making a purchase, please send me an email. Turnaround is typically 5-7 weeks.

FUJIFLEX LARGE FORMAT 8 X 10 LIMITED EDITION PRINTS
(only available through my 8 x 10 limited edition gallery)
(editions of 10 + proofs)
I began shooting with an 8 x 10 view camera in 2009. Due to the amount of effort that goes into each shot, as well as the extremely high image quality, I've decided to limit the number of prints I make. For the two print sizes I offer: 20 x 24 and 30 x 40, only 10 prints will be made in each size. Prices rise incrementally until all prints are sold. I have a 4 tier pricing structure as follows:
First Tier: Prints 1-3
Second Tier: Prints 4-6
Third Tier: Prints 7-9
Fourth Tier: Print 10
When print #10 is sold, the image will no longer be printed. Every print is signed, dated and numbered on the back. To guarantee the originality and provenance, each print comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. These prints are not part of my automated ordering system. If you are interested in making a purchase, please send me an email. Turnaround is typically 5-7 weeks. Current editions for each image can be found within my gallery pages.
CURRENT PRICING AND AVAILABILITY ON ALL IMAGES:
20 x 24, First Tier, Prints 1-3/$900
