Limited edition prints are limited to runs of 100. We will only ever print the number indicated on each print. For example, 8/100 means you have print number eight of limited edition of one hundred images in total.
I primarily use a Phase One IQ180
camera which is a medium format digital camera and a Linhof 617
which is a film based camera. I use a Nikon D4
for underwater images. I also use Induro
monitors and Really Right Stuff
ball heads and accessories.
We print using two types of material. the first is Hahnemuhle fine art photographic paper. It is arguably the highest quality photographic paper available.These genuine artist papers made of 100 % cotton or pure alpha cellulose present smooth and textured surfaces. This special coating permits high quality printing. In addition to this all images are sprayed with a special UV protective coating to ensure the ultimate in archival quality. The result of this technology is that you have the highest quality print availible anywhere in the world.
The second media is a archival quality 100% cotton canvas. This is a museum quality canvas. The canvas images are also sprayed with a special UV protective coating to ensure the ultimate in archival quality.
With both of these options the print will last for a lifetime if framed and cared for properly.

We have recenlty added the option of a beautiful Bellini
fine Itailian framing to our range. Bellini
are the ultimate in framing and whilst they cost slightly more than standard framing the different they make to your art work is exceptional and well worth the expense.
Alernatively we can print an image onto canvas which is printed to the edge and stretched over a wooden frame. This gives a frameless appearance and is also a modern look. Canvas prints can also be framed in a
a tradition style if required.
We can also offer customised framing in consultation with the client, choosing the correct frame to compliment the art work is very important. One of our trained professionals can be invaluable in ensuring you
art work is enhanced with correct framing.
Yes, we will be able to print and package this for you . We are able to safely send the image to you anywhere in the world.
As part of the service, an information sheet about appropriate framing will be provided.
Integrity of ‘the shot’ is an important value. I believe that whilst you can use technology to enhance what is in the image, it should be true to what I saw.
People should be able to go to the locations of the shots and be able to recognise not only the place but also the feel of it.
I use Photoshop to enhance the images, however, I do not believe in fundamentally altering the photographic image. For example, I would not add objects into a shot that were not there originally.
Every photographer I know uses Photoshop as a tool. Even when people develop film photos they still can use the chemical and technical process to work on colour balance and exposures. Photoshop provides the same functions digitally.
My photography is mainly landscape and I find that nature is beautiful in and of itself. It takes an eye for details and the ability to use your equipment well to capture images that inspire. Capturing the natural light and colours in a landscape and enhancing them in Photoshop is an art.
I hope that when you see my images and visit the locations that you will see what I’ve tried to capture.
