All prints are sold unmounted and unframed. A Certificate of Authenticity

The prints are professionally printed by a Hahnemuhle certified studio
to exhibition standard on archival quality paper, using either a C-Type
or Giclee process (more info on this below).

The prints are made using one of two printing processes... either C-Type
or Giclee depending on which paper is used for the print.
The more limited availability larger sized prints are printed using
the giclee process - a sophisticated ink jet print onto acid free Hahnemuhle
Photo Rag paper. These prints have an archive life (before first sign
of any fading) of 200 years in storage - half that if displayed.This
is my preferred printing method, as the paper has no reflective qualities,
the blacks are deep and the paper base tone has a warmer look.
For a more typical photographic look, the smaller 'collector size' prints
are printed using the C-Type (chromegenic) process. This is akin to
the traditional photographic methods in that it uses light sensitive
paper which the image is projected onto, the paper is then developed
and washed. The paper used is Fujifilm Crystal Archive. These prints
do not have so long an archive life as the giclee prints - about half
the life expectancy before the first signs of any fading.
Both print types are standard processes which can be seen in the best
museums and galleries the world over. Despite the lower archive life
expectancy many of the world's most expensive selling photographs at
auction were chromegenic prints.
