To order fine art quality prints or if you have other requests for sizes, media and format, please email me at [email protected] or call me at 908.938.6423. Due to chronic supply chain issues and constantly changing materials prices, I can no longer offer prints online. 

There are several other print options including more and larger sizes, different types of papers, and framing and mounting selections that I can create for your specific needs.  In addition to the typical fine art paper prints, other options include museum acrylic, gallery box, and framed prints.  Just give me a call or email me to discuss your needs. 

Digital Downloads. You may purchase a digital download of the high resolution JPEG file, from which you can print yourself or have printed for you as well as use as a screensaver or other digital use. You are licensed for only your personal use of the photograph; it may not be copied, shared with others or sold.

Photographic Prints.  Loose prints are available on Fuji Crystal Archive paper, the gold standard of archival quality printing paper that will last 90 years or more if properly cared for.  It is beautifully light-reflective.  Photographs printed on this paper are lustrous and elegant.  These prints will be shipped to you ready for framing along with instructions for your framer. 

Metal Prints.  Are a relatively new art medium for preserving photographs by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets.  Because the image is infused into the surface and not on it, the images will take on an almost magical luminescence. The ultra-hard scratch-resistant surface is waterproof/weatherproof and can be cleaned easily – just avoid direct sunlight.  Metal prints come ready to hang with all of the hardware you will need.

Canvas Prints. These are textured prints on real artist's canvas with archival quality pigmented inks, which is then hand-stretched over a 1-1/2" deep wooden frame that is ready to hang. These prints are excellent for photographs of trees, forests and wildlife where the textures and rich colors add a sense of depth to the photograph.

Framed Prints.  I offer a selection of museum archival quality frames. The photograph is printed on Fuji Crystal Archive paper and framed using a black linen mat and artist-grade optical pexi-glass. The print comes ready to hang. Please contact me for more information on framing options and pricing.

Framed Poster Style Prints. For those that would like a more affordable print, I am pleased to offer framed poster-style prints. The photograph is printed on fine art satin paper and framed using a black stain on maple wood frame with a one-inch black mat and artist-grade pexi-glass. The print comes ready to hang. This presents a more affordable, high quality print for your home or office.

Black PoolBlack PoolWest Thumb Geyser Basin, Yellowstone National Park, WY

The Black Pool is a beautifully colored spring that is intensely hot. I love the sharply defined colors created by the microbes that live in this extreme environment.
