As a photographer my camera is simply a tool, as the brush is to the painter. It is a tool for creative expression, searching to capture images of nature's beauty that stir emotion and calm the soul.
Science shows that immersing ourselves in nature has a calming effect which reduces stress and increases positivity, making fine art landscape and nature photography prints a perfectly natural and organic way to decorate our homes.
The undeniable truth is that no matter our age or cultural background, there is no bond more primitive and rooted in humans than our love of nature.

Lumachrome® TruLife® Acrylic Prints
Lumachrome® is a proprietary, state-of-the-art paper that is simply the best printing material available today. It features vivid, brilliant colors lasting over 120 years with incredible 3D depth and dimensionality.
TruLife® is a revolutionary optically clear acrylic with an anti-reflective coating that vastly eliminates reflections and glare while allowing viewers to see the finest details in the image.
Combining the best of both worlds, Lumachrome® technology coupled with TruLife® acrylic produces breathtaking works of art that offer incredible 3D depth, intense color, and razor-sharp clarity for the highest-resolution viewing experience possible. They are the absolute gold standard of photographic presentation.
Charity Edition Framed Lumachrome® TruLife Acrylic Prints
'Charity Edition' prints are identical to Lumachrome® TruLife® acrylic prints, but with the addition of any MUSEUM-QUALITY Roma® or Omega® Italian wooden frame and linen liner combination of your choice in a wide range of styles and colors for one-of-a-kind art pieces to suit your personal style.
These Limited Edition pieces are by far the most highly sought-after by fine art collectors, for a detailed brilliance and warmth that is absolutely unequaled in sophistication and beauty.

Fujiflex® Crystal Archive Metal Prints
Fujiflex® Crystal Archive is Fujifilm's premier professional photographic material which demonstrates incredible depth, contrast, vibrant color and razor sharp detail. The photograph is meticulously adhered to a robust sheet of aluminum, then covered with an exclusive high-gloss UV laminate for a perfectly flat, super-gloss archival finish completely free of any 'orange peel' texture.
These prints are a stunning, contemporary presentation that arrives ready to hang with no external framing required. Fujiflex® Crystal Archive metal prints are best suited for environments where reflections and glare are NOT an issue. This is a VERY important consideration when choosing your print medium.
Metallic DiBond® Prints
LexJet® Metallic is a stunning ink-jet photo paper resulting in a print that is remarkably rich, sharp and vibrant. The LexJet® Metallic print is expertly adhered to the surface of the Dibond® aluminum composite, then covered with a matte laminate which protects the print and markedly reduces reflections and glare.
With a look similar to a traditional metal print, the less expensive substrate material allows me to offer this print style as my most cost-effective option.
