FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What should I expect from a Fine Art Print?
While browsing images on a computer monitor is nice, the true beauty of a photograph can only be realized by viewing it as a fine art print. If you like what you see on your computer monitor, a print will have you mesmerized. Especially when paired with acrylic, our prints have color so deep and dimensionality so real they have to be seen to be believed. These are not prints you would expect from the photo lab around the corner... we use only the highest quality professional paper and press available, and adhere to the highest standards for printing in the industry. Our prints are truly archival, exhibition quality prints, whether for the gallery in New York, or in your home!
For the most savvy collectors, our proprietary Lumachrome HD acrylic facemounted prints have deep, rich color, vibrance, and depth superior to anything on the market today, and are the standard choice for fine art galleries around the world.Do you manipulate your photos?
Yes. As Ansel Adams said, The negative is comparable to the composer's score and the print to its performance. That is equally true in the digital age. My camera captures the raw data from the scene, while post processing allows me to render each photo according to my artistic vision, and present a compelling composition which tells a unique story. Unlike photojournalism, my goal in producing an image is to convey the spirit and feeling of the scene to my viewers, not just the raw data that was captured by the camera.
What are limited edition prints?
Limited Edition prints (LEPs) are exhibition quality, gallery prints produced strictly and exclusively in editions of 200. When the edition is sold out, no additional prints will ever be made. These prints are highly limited, and very exclusive. Limited Edition Prints are registered and shipped with a hand signed and numbered Certificate of Authenticity (COA), which guarantees the original work. LEPs are priced according to the number remaining in the edition, with prices increasing in tiers of 50. Edition numbers 1-25 are artist reserves, and will be released at my discretion when the edition has sold out.I lost my COA, can I get a replacement?
Your certificate of authenticity (COA) includes a hand-signed certificate with a hologram and serial number matched to the print itself. I maintain a catalog of all purchases and serial numbers. There is a $50 administrative fee to provide a replacement.What is your turnaround time for orders?
Once your order is placed, the typical turnaround time is 4-6 weeks. Large prints, acrylic mounted prints, and canvas prints typically have longer turnaround times. This is because unlike automated print services, I prepare photographs to print for each order individually. This is a time consuming process which involves making changes in luminance, color and contrast based on the paper used (soft-proofing), as well as sharpening for the final output print size. For larger prints, I will typically make test prints and send you a proof to ensure the final product lives up to your expectations. All of this takes time, but ensures that you will be thrilled with the final result. You can check your print order status here.Next Page
