About the Prints

A Photographic Print is a beautiful thing!

Before purchasing a Print anywhere I highly recommend asking the artist for specifics about the paper and Inks they use. It can mean the difference between not only an image looking perfect but also having a lifespan of a few years or closer to 100 years.

 I choose to use beautiful Museum Archival Quality Papers for all my Prints. My prefered Papers are:

Canson Rag Photographique 310gsm and Canson Platine Fibre 310gsm depending on what I think will work best for any particular Image.

I love to print. It is the final and most satisfying step in the process.
