Online Print Shop

Over the past year I've had the pleasure of seeing my work printed in various different formats, from aluminium based wall products to magazine prints, behind acrylic panels to metallic pearl prints, where the photographs really start to take on a new look and feel. I've often mentioned that the best part of being a photographer are the experiences, being able to call it my career and capture images during my travels. Whilst a digital image is great, colour calibration which varies from screen to screen (a photographers nightmare) makes colours and contrast fluctuate greatly, affecting how the image is perceived. After numerous requests to sell my work as wall art, a large amount of time and effort has gone into sourcing the finest quality archival paper and inks to guarantee these prints will be of unrivalled quality that will stand the test of time.

While the number of options for mounts and finishes is endless (aluminium, acrylic, floating glass frames, canvasses etc) the greatest request has been for unmounted fine art prints, which allow the customer the choice of finish and frame. As such I've now launched an online shop with the following size Giclée prints to keep things simple:

  • 12x8" inch Fine Art Giclée Print
  • 18x12" inch Fine Art Giclée Print
  • 24x16" inch Fine Art Giclée Print
  • 30x20" inch Fine Art Giclée Print
  • 30x15" inch Panoramic Fine Art Giclée Print (where applicable)

Other print sizes and finishes/mounts are available, if there is something you'd like to see which isn't listed on the website, feel free to contact me for a quote. Payment can be made through the website using PayPal so that transactions are safe and secure.

Clicking the images in the store will bring up a larger preview including a brief description. I will be adding more images to the print store over the coming weeks and throughout the year, if you have any comments or requests then I'd love to hear from you. You can visit the online print shop through my website or by clicking this direct link.

Published - Hertfordshire Life Magazine

If you're local to Hertfordshire then why not grab yourself the latest September issue of Hertfordshire Life, containing two of my landscape photographs in their "Beautiful Hertfordshire" section. I'm thrilled to have some more of my landscape work published as it means those early morning wake up calls for sunrise are worth while! Included in the magazine is "Sunset over the fields of Hertfordshire at Studham" and "Purple Haze at Hitchin Lavender, Ickleford" :)

I've been doing alot more landscape work recently and if you'd like to keep up with the latest then check out my FlickR account here or follow me on Twitter.

Hitchin Lavender - Purple Haze

Every year Hitchin Lavender open up their field to visitors from all around the country. Hitchin, once known for being one of the major Lavender growing areas in the Country grows five varieties of Lavender; Hidcote, Blue Ice, Rosea, Sawyers and Edelweiss. The fragrant shrub provides a mass of vibrant colour in the landscape and is a dream to photograph for anyone.   Although spontaneity and the ability to adapt to your surroundings is crucial in photography, I can often visualise a photograph before I've taken it. It's for this reason that I dragged my better half out of bed to accompany me on this 4:30am sunrise shoot. The thought of a low lying mist through the lavender lit by a golden sun had me excited (much to Hannah's dismay :))

I've mentioned in previous posts that planning is crucial, and numerous checks to the Met Office were carried out to ensure we wouldn't be met by torrential rain (can't leave anything to chance in England). Conditions were looking good with clear skies and 89% humidity forecasted. Mist should begin to form at 90% so I had my fingers crossed for the photograph I wanted to create. The Photographers Ephemeris iPhone app allowed us to pinpoint the exact direction of the sunrise leaving nothing to chance. Now, onto the result....

As you can see, that's alot of mist and not much of a sunrise. Overnight changes in the forecast meant it was now 97% humidity and at 5:19am when the sun should of bathed us in a golden glow we were left with a cold misty scene. Not to be deterred, we carried on photographing the gorgeous view that we were left with. Turns out, the mist produced a stunning landscape shot as the colour of the lavender was reflected in the sky.

Here's a picture of myself in the Lavender Field, picture courtesy of the wonderful Hannah Couzens. We have plans to return shortly and have another go at the sunrise, but for now i'll be catching up on my sleep! If your interested in visiting or reading more about Hitchin Lavender, please feel free to visit their website by clicking this link. We'd both like to say a huge thank you to Hitchin Lavender for their hospitality and giving us the chance to photograph the landscape.
