About Our Prints
Our photo prints are made on what we consider the best archival papers, among which are Hahnemuhl, Canson and Epson. Called archival pigment prints they are usually created on an Epson or Canon printer. Ward Rice is our master printer. His studio is in Stowe, Vermont, the next town above my gallery. Ward has a degree in photography from Southern Illinois University and has been printing photographs for almost a half century. He is a photographer who evolved into a printer, which is his passion. He knows well how to work in a darkroom and how to correct and also to scan images made with a digital camera. He is the only one designated to make my prints and understands what I want in depth of tones. If there is a fault in scanning, he will correct it.
To Mat or Not to Mat
More clients are requesting that their photographs not be matted. Often they consult their framer who may suggest a startling white board, or a deeper dimension vertically or horizontally of the mat board. The photograph often denotes the hue and style of the frame.
Our prints are not matted or framed. We allow our clients to be creative with the artwork they intend to display in their homes or offices. Our prints up to 16" x 20" are mailed. We include backing for the print that is inserted in a plastic sleeve. Larger sizes are rolled and sent in tubes or boxes.
Print Sizes & Prices

The photographer signs all prints. If the print is in a limited edition, the number will be in the left bottom corner.
