Fall colors along the Mountain Fork River in Beavers Bend State Park in Oklahoma

Catching the Light

Broken Bow, Oklahoma (2022) - When we arrived the previous evening, we were greeted by some nice atmospheric conditions at this viewpoint along the Mountain Fork River. Unfortunately, it had been five months since I'd last had a chance to get out with my camera and, to make matters worse, it was the first time I was using my new Canon R5.

 

In my rush to catch the conditions, while simultaneously trying to knock the rust off my skills, I accidentally turned off autofocus on my lens instead of image stabilization, which led to my first photos being a little soft as the stabilization motors shifted while the camera was mounted on my tripod.

 

Fortunately, I had my head straightened out by the time this opportunity came around the next evening.

 

While I love the textures created by the combination of light and shadow on the hillside, it was the group of golden cypress trees in the background, just catching the last of the day's sunlight, that compelled me to make this photo.

 

Perhaps I should have called it Redemption instead!

  • Artist Series Fine Art Prints

    My Artist Series fine art photography artwork is printed on Palo Duro Etching 315 from Red River Paper, using a Canon Pro 2100 large format printer. Each print is mastered and produced by me in my home studio and includes a signed and numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

    Photography prints made with Palo Duro Etching 315 are the perfect choice for anyone looking to showcase stunning nature photography. This high-quality art paper is made from 100% cotton rag and has a classic texture that adds depth and interest to your prints without detracting from the details. It is OBA-free and archival, making it ideal for museum-quality and exceptional longevity.

    One of the benefits of this paper from Red River is its warmer white tone, which gives my prints an elegant, natural look. This is particularly beneficial for nature photography, as it enhances the beauty of landscapes, nature scenes, and other images with a natural color palette. Unlike other matte papers, it also produces amazingly deep blacks, thanks to a barrier coat that locks ink into the inkjet coating and prevents it from sinking into the base paper.

    Palo Duro Etching 315 is a true conservation grade media, with no optical brighteners, and is acid- and lignin-free. It is perfect for producing my fine art nature prints, whether for display in your home or at work. This paper is also ideal for fine art print collectors who appreciate the texture and feel of watercolor or cold press fine art paper.

    The professional printer I use, a Canon imagePROGRAF Pro-2100, uses archival pigment inks, providing vibrant, accurate colors. The use of pigment inks furthers the longevity of my Artist Series prints when properly displayed and cared for.

    With their elegant look, feel, and performance, my fine art prints are sure to impress and delight for generations to come.

    ARTIST SERIES PAPER SIZES

    My photos are mastered to take advantage of the most appropriate crop, or aspect, ratio for each composition. The majority of my photos use a 2:3 aspect, but I also have images in aspects of 4:5, 1:1, 1:2, and 2:5.

    For 1:1, 2:3, and 4:5 aspects, smaller prints are produced on 11" x 14" and 16" x 20" sheets of fine art paper. The border around the printed image will vary depending on the aspect of the selected photo.

    I prefer to use these standard print sizes for my smaller prints to allow for more off-the-shelf framing options without forcing you to have a custom frame produced, which can often cost more than the print itself. If you would prefer to have the paper trimmed to match the actual image aspect ratio, please contact me to receive a special order quote.

    11" x 14" Printed Image Sizing
     

    • 2:3 - Approximately 8.3" x 12.4" for the printed image
    • 4:5 - Approximately 9.4" x 11.8" for the printed image
    • 1:1 - Approximately 9.4" square for the printed image


    16" x 20" Printed Image Sizing
     

    • 2:3 - Approximately 12.3" x 18.4" for the printed image
    • 4:5 - Approximately 14.4" x 18.1" for the printed image
    • 1:1 - Approximately 14.4" square for the printed image


    Larger sizes for my Artist Series fine art prints are produced to match each photo's specific aspect ratio. A small white border is still provided to assist with framing, but please note that custom framing may be required.

  • Ready-to-Hang Prints

    In addition to my Artist Series fine art prints, which are produced by me personally in my home studio, I also offer Ready-to-Hang print options in partnership with a trusted third-party print lab.

    These prints come ready to hang out of the box. Although you may still choose to have them framed, framing is not necessary as they include mounting hardware to hang them directly on your wall as-is.

    I currently offer two Ready-to-Hang options:

    CANVAS READY-TO-HANG PRINTS
     

    • Canvas prints provide a textured, canvas-like surface, giving images a tactile, painterly quality. They are typically stretched over wooden frames for a classic gallery-wrap look.
    • Canvases offer a unique and artistic way to display photos. They are durable, lightweight, and do not require additional framing. The texture adds depth and character.
    • Canvases work well in both traditional and contemporary settings. They are a great fit for living rooms and offices. Canvas prints are versatile and can adapt to various lighting conditions, including natural and artificial light.


    ACRYLIC READY-TO-HANG PRINTS
     

    • Acrylic prints are a popular choice for home décor and office/commerical spaces due to their incredible quality and versatility. These prints offer a stunning visual impact that elevates the beauty of any of my images.
    • The high-gloss finish of the acrylic material enhances the vibrant colors and sharp details of the image, creating a mesmerizing three-dimensional effect. This makes acrylic prints ideal for showcasing my photography in your home or office.
    • Acrylic prints are also incredibly durable and long-lasting. Unlike traditional prints that can fade over time, acrylic prints are resistant to fading, water damage, and other environmental factors. They are also easy to clean and maintain, ensuring that your images remain in pristine condition for many years to come.
    • Acrylic prints are a fantastic choice for you to add a touch of beauty and style to your space. Their exceptional quality, durability, and versatility make them a standout option.
    • Note: All Acrylic Prints are printed at actual size and then machine cut 1/8th smaller on all sides. If you order a 24 x 36", your final print size will be 23.75 x 35.75".


    METAL READY-TO-HANG PRINTS

    I do not currently offer metal prints. Although they can be a popular choice, I find they do not display as well as acrylic prints, which offer similar, but much more impactful, high-gloss aesthetic. If you are interested in ordering a metal print of one of my photos, please contact me to discuss a special order.

  • Artist Series Framing Recommendations

    Each Artist Series print requires time to dry and complete the outgassing process. Although the fine art prints I produce are given ample time to do so before shipping, you may still wish to wait an additional 7-14 days prior to framing to ensure all outgassing is complete. If a print is framed and outgassing occurs, you may notice a thin white film on the underside of the display glass or acrylic, which can be easily cleaned (assuming the print is not displayed in a sealed frame: see below).

    Always use archival, 100% cotton mounting and mat boards, and avoid the use of spray, liquid, or high-hea
