Who Prints Your Images?
For most of the images on this site, I use Bay Photo just outside Santa Cruz, California, USA because of their outstanding world-wide reputation for not only high quality, affordable prints, but for their amazing reputation in handling world-wide shipping. It is important to me and true to my vision that my images are able to get out into the world. Certain images, in the Original Artwork or Limited Edition categories, I will print myself.
What is your shipping Policy?
My shipping is handled by Bay Photo, a professional print lab just outside Santa Cruz CA and I trust them to deliver your chosen artwork in a safe and secure manner. You will receive a confirmation email when your chosen artwork is shipped. We ship worldwide but please be aware of Import Duties that may be charged to you at your countries point of entry (these are not within our control and vary vastly between countries).
What is your Policy on Returns/Exchanges/Refunds?

What print medium do you recommend for your images?
This is truly based on your personal preference and the environment in which you wish to display your artwork. I can however share with you some general observations:
Fine art paper with matting and framing is the more traditional art look. This does an excellent job of showing all images well, especially black & white (white matting with a black frame works great for bnw images). The Lustre, Pearl and Metallic paper types all have a bit of gloss to them, while the Matte and Watercolor papers do not. Watercolor paper works best with images that are not highly detailed, but has a nice texture that works well with some images, particularly some of the desert abstract images in my Terra Incognita gallery.
Canvas mount images are done to replicate a 'painting' look and are great for images that are not showing a lot of detail, like landscapes and seascapes.
Metal and aluminum show dramatic colour best however intricate shades of green are difficult to render accurately in this medium. Acrylic are incredible for super vibrant images with elements of translucence and depth (water, long exposures). They can be more reflective, and you may choose low gloss versions of these. Hope this helps and thank you for asking.
Are your images photoshopped?
All of my images have some form of correction or adjustment applied in what we call 'Post-Processing', but I rarely do any compositing of images or real transformation. If I do, it will be clearly indicated in the comments about the image.
There are images on your Instagram and Facebook pages that aren't on here. Can I buy one of them?
Sure! Just drop me a note either via Direct Message on one of those platforms, or use the Contact Form on this page. I'd be happy to do a special order!
