Are you the creator of all the fine art photography prints available for purchase?
Absolutely. Over the past three decades, I have amassed a diverse portfolio of over 2,000 fine art images and recently chose to share my work with the public.
How long does worldwide delivery take for your photography prints?
As the creator, I personally print, sign, and package every print at my studio in Haliburton, Ontario. These prints are then shipped worldwide via Canada Post free of charge. Therefore, delivery times can vary based on location, anywhere from a few days to several weeks.
Additionally, when traveling and shooting on location, orders placed during these periods will be dispatched upon my return. This may result in delivery times extending to several weeks. However, rest assured that the wait for these unique pieces is well worth it!
Do you rely on a print-on-demand service?
No, I produce all my photographs at my Haliburton studio. Furthermore, each print is hand-signed, making print-on-demand services unsuitable.
How are your fine art prints shipped – flat or rolled in a tube?
Art prints up to 8 x 10" are shipped flat, while larger prints are rolled and packaged in a cardboard tube.
Is your packaging secure?
Absolutely. I take great care in securely packaging my prints and have never encountered issues with damaged deliveries. Flat-shipped prints are placed between two pieces of thick cardboard. Rolled prints are wrapped in tissue paper and placed in a sturdy cardboard tube.
Are prints available on surfaces such as metal, acrylic, or other materials?
I offer prints on various materials like metal and acrylic. Extra charges may apply for these options. Contact me to discuss what you're interested in, and we'll go over the choices together.
Are your photos sold with frames?
I don't sell framed images since framing is a personal preference. However, I'm glad to discuss framing ideas and show you a mock-up of the print in a frame on your wall.
What printing method do you use for your images and how long can they be expected to last?
I use archival pigment prints with Epson printers, the latest Ultrachrome ink set, and fine-art archival papers. This provides a longevity of over 250 years for color prints and 400 years for black and white. Prints are also coated with Premiere Art's Print Shield for UV light and elemental protection.
What distinguishes fine art photography prints from photo posters?
Fine art photography prints are crafted using archival pigment inks on high-quality archival paper, ensuring the longevity of several decades. As a result, fine art prints have smooth gradations and vivid colors and remain fade-resistant for at least 250 years. In contrast, photo posters use non-archival inks and paper, resulting in inferior colors and gradations, and are prone to fading after a few years.
