I have started selecting some of my favourite photographs from the past 30 years to be showcased as available for wall art and fine art prints. These are available to purchase directly from me. Each print is produced to order, to the sizes and specifications you require, and on the finest archival quality art papers. I have been specialising in fine art landscape photography and fine art wildlife photography for a couple of decades. It combines my love or art and photography whilst allowing me the perfect excuse to spend time in wild places.

What exactly are Fine Art Prints from photographs?
You may ask, what exactly are fine art prints of photographs, and how do they differ from what I can buy on my high street or from one of the large online print vendors? It’s a fair question. Well, for a start, these are not mass produced. Each print is individually created to your specifications following a dialogue between us. Secondly, each print is produced using some of the finest, museum quality fine art paper (you chose which one) and pigment dyes. Thirdly, and for me this is quite an important point, you are not buying through some remote automatic process without any human intervention, you are not buying through some third party or bulk supplier processing thousands of prints with no connection to any of them. You are buying direct from the photographer who created them; someone who has a direct connection – who was there at the time the image was created and to whom the look and finish of the final product is really important.
The prints: media and quality
Prints are produced on some of the best archival quality papers available, including Epsom 215gsm Fine Art Cotton, Fujifilm 300gsm Photo Rag and Hahnemühle 290gsm Bamboo Fibre. The choice of paper weight, brand and finish is yours. Inks currently used are Epsom Ultrachrome HD, high optical density pigment dyes. These inks are renowned for their faithful colour reproduction, resitance to humidity and light and longevity (estimated at over 200 years under archival conditions).
Epson Fine Art Cotton 215gsm paper is acid free, helping to preserve both photos and fine art prints. 100% cotton rag with a surface that is radiant white for vivid colour reproduction. This is a paper with excellent archival properties, resulting in prints that will be enjoyed for many years.
