Art Photography

Botanical and Impressionist Photography

I’ve been taking photographs since 1980, when I got a tiny box camera and one film cartridge for my birthday.

Once I got that film developed, I was in love.

If you want to go straight to my art photography prints for sale, you can see and buy them on thetallphotographer.art. But I’d read the rest of this page first, to give a bit of context.

My purpose in taking a photograph, apart from the pure pleasure it gives me, is to get an emotional reaction from the viewer. What will someone feel when they see the image?

I tend to try to photograph how I feel when I see something, and I try to convey that feeling.

Prints

After a lot of thought and testing, I now have my art photographs printed at The Printspace in London. They print using the Giclee precision inkjet process using very long-lived archival inks, on superb paper stocks.

I’ve chosen the gorgeous Hahnemuhle Etching paper for all my prints. It really soaks up ink and allows for superb colour depth. It has a medium texture, almost like a watercolour paper, which gives the prints a painterly quality.

I’m gradually expanding my collection of prints for sale, and have built a mini-art website here.

I check, sign and number every single print, and then send it on to you.

Please note that prints generally look darker and more saturated when printed, compared to viewed on a screen. And colours can vary between whatever screen you’re seeing them on, and when printed.

Also note that when mounting a print, you’ll lose a few millimetres of the image on each edge, under the mount. I’ve specifically cropped each photograph to make this work.

All the prints on offer are available at a standard size of 12×16 inches (the size I print for my exhibitions). I find that once framed, they create a good-sized piece for most homes. Please note, they are unmounted, and I’d recommend getting them professionally mounted and framed using acid free mount board, backing and tapes – this is how I frame my own prints for exhibitions – to conservation standards.

You can also order all of them at 18×24 inches, which makes for a spectacular print, two feet by one and a half feet.  When framed generously, this makes for quite a statement piece!

I now have greetings cards for sale too. They usually go like hotcakes at my exhibitions.
