Fine Art Printing

A print is the final expression of the image that I’ve conceived when taking the photograph, and I view the craftsmanship involved with printing to be as important as the original composition of the photograph. I personally print all of my images. All prints are limited editions. The size of each edition is specified in the description. Prints are signed, numbered, and dated verso.

Black & White Images: Platinum/Palladium Prints

Black and white images are hand-crafted platinum/palladium prints. This is a historic printing process used extensively by master photographers at the turn of the 20th Century. A light sensitive solution of platinum and palladium salts is coated on matte watercolor paper. These prints have rich blacks and subtle mid-tones. Platinum/palladium prints are the most stable and long-lived of photographic prints. I enjoy the process since it offers an additional avenue for my artistic expression. Prints are truly one-of-a-kind.

Color Images: Archival Pigment Prints

Color images are archival pigment inkjet prints.A pigment print is made using pigment-based inks as opposed to the dye-based inks found in many inkjet printers. The advantages of pigment inks are longevity and color stability.

My color prints are made using an Epson SureColor P800, which uses Epson UltraChrome HD pigment-based inks. I use Canson Editon Etching paper, which is a 100% cotton, museum-grade paper with a matte finish and a subtle texture.
