Behind the Scenes of this Photo

Taken in the Marie Lakes basin, Ansel Adams Wilderness, Eastern Sierra, California, on July 3rd, 2013

This night’s shoot held a little bit of insanity for me. There were beautiful clouds lighting up in every direction, starting from an hour before sunset. There were small ponds, reflecting pools, waterfalls, and cascades everywhere I looked and choosing one composition from among them was a virtually impossible task. On top of that, there were thousands of mosquitoes out, buzzing with hunger at the dawn of the high country spring. I hadn’t seen any bears or deer out, so it was safe to assume that I was the most mouth-watering, blood-filled mammal around for miles. As the horde descended upon me I lost my mind a little bit and in between shots I was leaping from side to side, spinning in circles, and slapping myself silly in an attempt to avoid their buzzing and biting. After awhile I gave up, focused on the photography, and let the mozzies do their thing. After all, bug bites fade, photos do not.

    Traditional Photographic Prints

    Photographic prints are the traditional standard in photography, providing an elegant and timeless look. My prints are printed with photographic processes on archival papers for supreme longevity and clarity. These prints, offered on lustre, glossy, metallic, and Fuji Pearl papers, show rich colors and fine details for a true fine-art experience. My photographic prints are offered in limited editions of 300 and boast a 60-100 year lifetime.

    Museum-Quality Canvas Prints

    Canvas prints are becoming increasingly popular as an alternative to traditional photographic prints. They have an awesome presentation, adding a 3D, almost “painterly” feel to photos. Because the image is wrapped around the edge of the canvas, these prints don’t need to be framed, which saves time and hassle. In other words, these museum-quality canvas prints arrive ready-to-hang. My canvases are all giclee printed using acid free inks and canvases in order to provide a true archival product. Kept indoors and out of direct sun, canvases will last a lifetime.

    Metal Prints

    Metal prints are the ultimate contemporary printing method. They are created by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets. Because the image is infused into the surface and not on it, your images will take on an almost magical luminescence. When it comes to clarity, detail, color, and pop, nothing compares to a metal print. My metal prints come mounted on a 3/4″ inset frame which “floats” the print off the wall. For 1-1/4″ inset or or flush-mounted black frames there is a nominal additional fee.
