Print Process

The Prints

Thank you for your interest in my work. I am so happy to be able to share two of my greatest passions with you, photography and conservation. I understand buying fine art online may seem risky or daunting. I want you to be reassured I will help you with any questions you may have or that may come up along the way. We offer digital mockups to help you decide on a piece you love showing you exactly how it will look in your home. I can answer questions about custom framing options or can arrange help when it comes to hanging if needed. I am alway available to help with your questions.  

Conservation organizations around the world have a desperate need for resources, this is why we donate a portion of every sale to a relevant organization as to the subject in photo. All the information below will help educate you about my work from production to purchase through my website. It is my goal to help you make an informed decision of your favorites pieces to fit your interior design needs. If I have left any questions unanswered please feel free to contact me by email or phone. I really enjoy speaking to potential or current collectors of my work and would be glad to be of any assistance I can be. 

Through this website, I offer my entire body of work. This site will be updated regularly to feature my most current work, past collections and any additional information through our News Page. My collections run from 16×24 all the way to 48×72 on select pieces for standard sizes and up to 40×80 or 30×90 for panoramas. All images come ready to hang using our Lumachrome HD acrylic prints or ChromaLuxe HD metal float frame style. This style highlights the work beautifully creating a modern clean look with a no hassle ready to hang package. Float framing eliminates the need for an expensive external frame while still displaying the work in a visually breathtaking fashion, perfect for any home or business.  For those seeking the most luxurious option, our Lumachrome HD acrylic prints can be ordered matted and framed. Shipping is free on all artwork anywhere in the United States 60” and under. 

LUMACHROME HD TRUELIFE ACRYLIC PRINTS

If you are looking for the absolute best, museum quality, luxury prints, I offer Lumachrome prints externally framed using ROMA Handmade Italian Tabacchino Dark Ash Frames with liners in your choice of colors. Custom framing options are available however there may be additional charges. 

 I am going to get technical here but I want to be clear as to why we choose this process to highlight my work. This revolutionary product gives viewers the highest-resolution life-like viewing experience available today. The optically clear finish on the acrylic gives the work a 3D effect while reducing glare to nearly zero. These prints will show great even in rooms with many windows. Acrylic Prints or “FACEMOUNTS” are the creations of desire that can be found hanging in the finest galleries in art destinations worldwide. LUMACHROME prints surpass Fuji Flex bringing unbelievable resolution, clarity, vibrancy and Dmax with an incredible 3D image quality to your photo that can appear backlit and holographic. We create custom ICC profiles with a tweaked tone curve to get the maximum 3D effect and 16-bit printing for the smoothest tone and response. LUMACHROME is ONLY available facemounted due to the special process. The Lumachrome process is engineered to overcome and surpass the limitations of traditional Fujiflex chromogenic processes and inkjet processes. Details appear to emerge in 3D from the depths of the image with the Lumachrome process thanks to the transparency layer that is infused with iridium particles and is encapsulated in a layer suspended between the white poly surface and Acrylic. TruLife

A few other great practical qualities of Acrylic TruLife is the product is 99% UV protected, it cleans like normal glass displays, anti-static properties help to minimize dust and cleaning, and the surface is abrasion resistant offering unparalleled protection and preservation. 

CHROMALUXE ALUMINUM PRINTS

ChromaLuxe dye sublimation printing is the highest quality, luxury, metal printing available today. Dye is infused directly into the metal creating prints that are outstandingly clear, vibrantly vivid and durable for longevity. Because the dye is infused into the metal surface it reduces the risk of unwanted scratches or abrasions throughout the life of the artwork. All ChromaLuxe aluminum photo panels are coated with a custom formulated multi-layer polymer finish which provides a durable foundation (scratch, fade, fire, and water resistant) for visually stunning images. The overall depth and quality of the images are not only extraordinary to look at, but the light-weight durability of this product also remains unmatched by other competing products. ChromaLuxe metal prints can be cleaned with any all-purpose cleaner and wiped with a cloth. Easy cleaning allows for your museum-quality artwork to retain its shine, hassle-free.
