I spend considerable time both in the field and at home on the computer using the necessary techniques to produce panoramic pictures, vertically and horizontally in orientation. There are two reasons for this: 1) - I enjoy the challenge of composing panoramic images, it slows me down and makes me more considerate, and: 2) - the increased resolution of the resultant files make beautiful large prints without the need to resort to using any interpolation, therefore, adding information that was never there is not usually necessary.
My images are printed on high quality papers which have a much longer lifespan (if kept in the right conditions) and better colour rendition than conventional papers. Excellent results can be achieved with modern printing techniques that hold rich colour, have a high dynamic range, and render lots of fine detail. For these reasons I prefer my work to be displayed on such materials.
I have no plans to make my prints limited to a number of editions, partly because I wouldn’t want to be in a position where I refuse someone an image if it has run out, and, partly because none of my images are mass market products anyway. My images are made in small batches and in most instances just made to order. In owning one of my pieces you can be sure you will have an object that is, at most, something that just a handful of others may have.
Disclaimer: have used a double asterisk to denote any image that is a composite of two or more pictures. In a world full of information, and, much of it easily faked, I wanted to make it clear that some of my images are a composite, especially the ones that include the night sky. Because of the technicalities of capturing the stars I use different equipment to make those images to that of normal landscape images. I have set myself some rules when doing this: all of my night photographs are made on the same site, looking in the same direction, but the different images will be separated by time, not geography. There are sometimes up to 2 hours between frames as I have to wait for clearer skies, more stars, or specific objects to appear. This does mean that I am having to gather the relevant information in the field at different times and using different equipment in order to process later at the computer, hence the disclaimer. Despite this, the final image will always have been made with images from the same session.
The sizes here are the dimensions of the print and do not include the size of the matting; I have used 3 different sizes as a reference for small, medium and large to give a good idea of size (in inches) and cost. Note: the prices listed are the price for the print when fine art print paper is preferred, you will have to add the cost of framing and matting to the prices below. The prints are made using Hahnemuhle Photo Rag paper and a certificate is made by the printer out of the same material at the time it is produced. There is no certificate that comes with aluminium and canvas panels.
- small (<12" longest side) = £65
- medium (between 12'' and 20'' longest side) = £115
- large (>21'' longest side) = £235
Canvas prints and aluminium panels are becoming more popular and printing on these mediums is much better now than it used to be. Some advantages to canvas and aluminium panels are that they are ready to hang straight away, they come without the need or cost of framing, and the surface, unlike glass, is non-reflective. The prices above do not need to be adjusted for any additional costs. This can be a more appropriate choice in some situations.
Larger and smaller sizes are available as are different printing mediums so if its not listed here then please use the contact section of this website for more information. The example prices do not include postage, however all of my images are sent to you using Royal Mail special delivery service and I can usually get the piece to you within 3 weeks.
