Most of the nature and wildlife photographs on this site are available for sale as individual fine art archival pigment prints. Each is hand-made to order using archival pigment inks and papers. And the prints possess far more beauty and detail than you can see on your monitor. These signed prints would make a very personal gift for a friend or family member.
For a limited time I'm now running an experiment and is selling jpeg files that you can print yourself. Read about that offer here.
Prints can be had i five paper sizes:
This is the size of the paper the image is printed on. The size of the image itself on the print will vary, depending on the format of the image itself and all images will have a border at each edge of at least 20mm to make it easy to mat. Depending on the image, some images will not be be available in all of the print sizes. The available sizes is indicated on each image.
I believe that every artist has a responsibility to fund their own work and art, but I try to maintain as low a price as possible to allow as many as possible to enjoy my images. There is no point in creating artwork that "real people" can't afford to own.
You will find the price of each image and available sizes below the image with the buy button. You can order prints securely by credit or debit card using PayPal. Your credit card and PayPal will handle any currency conversion and you don't even need a PayPal account. Images are only offered in the sizes where I can still ensure the highest print quality, and depends on the camera, lens and technique used for the specific photograph.
The price is the cost of the print. In addition a fee of $20 is added to handle the cost of packaging and shipping to anywhere in the world. This is a flat fee that is the same regardless of how many prints that are ordered, so you will save on shipping cost by buying several prints at once. Unless courier delivery is requested (at extra charge, email me and I'll set it up) registered airmail will be used. Prints are shipped rolled in a sturdy mailing tube. To keep the cost of a print as low as possible prints are not matted. You will be free to choose your own matte at a local framer. Matted prints are considerably more difficult to ship, but I can make them on request. Prints are signed and dated below the image area on the right side.
My fine-art prints are offered in open edition only, I don't offer limited editions at an inflated price as I feel that the practice of limited editions is somewhat obsolete because of continuing improvements in printing technologies and my personal improvement as a print maker.
I would like to offer the very best photograph I am capable of making today rather than sell a print from an edition of prints made years ago. My prints are all individually made to order and each print is individually printed, dated, and signed. I prepare each print with great care, and the limitations of my time make my prints naturally few and precious. You can read more about my views on open and limited editions and my provenance in my essay "About Print Editions".
I want you to enjoy your artwork for years to come and to have wonderful memories associated with it. So to ensure that, I will give you the following guarantees:

No arguments, no hassles, no hidden clauses. Judging artwork by an on-line image is a chancy business, even when the images are very good, and I don't want anyone to feel dissatisfied. That's why I give you the guarantee that there is no monetary risk for you to buy a print from me.
