As part of my ongoing work with my 10x8 camera, I'm happy to offer for sale 'Fallen Tree' as a darkroom print. I have made a very limited number of contact prints from the 10 x 8 negative, on Ilford's Warmtone Fibre Based paper. The image size is a little smaller than 10 x8, and the paper size is nearly 11 x 14 inches. This allows the print to be mounted with a paper border showing, should the buyer wish. As always, the screen image fails to do the print justice, which really needs to be seen in person to be fully appreciated.
To date our customers outside the UK have been charged for shipping. The good news today is that we are scrapping that charge. From now on all prints ship for free, anywhere in the world!
Today I'm launching a new series of prints in my shop called 'pocket money prints'. The premise is very simple: printed to my usual standards with my normal materials, perhaps a little smaller than usual, these prints will share my love of printing at an affordable price. They will be signed according to my normal practice (on the rear) and will come with a certificate of authenticity.
To get the ball rolling, may I introduce you to 'Emerging Alliums'. The image measures roughly 10 x 15 cm and is printed, with a slightly warm tonality, on A4 Hahnemuhle Photo Rag 308 gsm paper. It is priced at £15.00.
More good news for the would-be buyer is that I am scrapping my additional charge for postage outside the UK. The price you pay is therefore fixed at £15.00.
I will be shipping on a first come first served basis.
For a limited time we are offering a 50% discount on all prints in the shop. Simply use the code 'SPRING50' to claim the offer. You can use it against single or multiple items.
Like one of my images but don't see a print? I can usually accommodate requests for specific images, so get in touch.
Thanks to everyone who's taken the time to look at, or enquire about, my Alleyway, Menorca print.
Not long to go now! Anyone who'd like to buy one has until 8pm on Tuesday (28th). From that point on, the print will be withdrawn from my shop.
Today I’m happy and excited to announce a new print offer. I’m also trying something different, by offering it for sale in my shop for one week only (starting today). I may make more in the future, or I may not (so it is strictly speaking an ‘open edition’ print), but it will be certainly limited by this time constraint for now. Who knows, I may never offer this image for sale again, so there is plenty of scope for purchasers to land themselves a very low-number work of art.
The piece is Alleyway, Menorca, a black and white inkjet print with a full-bodied tonal scale. It was shot on a Leica M6 TTL earlier this year, using Ilford HP5+ film, before being scanned on a negative scanner and edited digitally. The paper is the venerable Canson Baryta Photographique, which holds the fulsome tonality well, and accommodates the subtle darkest greys. The print is on A4 paper, with a generous border for framing. Image size is approximately 15 x 22 cm. As is my custom, I will sign the print in pencil on the rear and will ship it with a certificate of authenticity.
The print can be purchased in my shop now, but the sale will end on Tuesday 28th November at 8pm, London time. It will then be removed from the shop. If you are interested, my advice is naturally to place your order asap, something that is doubly important if you have the print in mind as a potential Christmas gift (and what better gift that a handcrafted print made by the photographer?). I'll do my best to make sure that any orders reach you in time for Christmas, but please be aware of shipping timescales and potential for disappointment if ordering from overseas.
For two weeks starting from today I'm offering 30% off all print purchases in my summer sale. You can buy a single print or more than one, and receive the discount. Simply use the code ALL30 at the checkout.
To launch this little sale, I'm offering a chance to win one of my small (A4) prints. All you have to do to enter is to re-tweet the tweet shown below. The competition will remain open for one week from today and the winner will be picked at random. I will contact you by Twitter direct mail if you win. No cash equivalent is offered and the print in question will be of my own choosing.
Thanks to everyone who has purchased one of my Young Corn prints. I will be offering a 50% discount to celebrate the launch of this print for one more week from today. Please use code CORN50 at the checkout to take advantage of this offer. You can find this and my other prints here.
Last week I shared my Young Corn piece, shot on Ilford's HP5+ film. I have now added this as a print in my shop (please click on the 'prints' link above).
Two sizes are available, one on A4 paper and one on A3. Both have a border to allow for mounting (matting) and framing (the image of the actual print above helps to show this). I have chosen Canson's beautiful Baryta Photographique paper, an inkjet paper that gives the feel of a traditional fibre based print. I especially enjoy the rich and deep blacks that this paper has to offer, which I think suits the image, and it also produces an excellent tonal range. I wanted to reproduce the tonal rapport that HP5+ gives with this kind of subject and light. As is my customary practice, they will be signed in pencil on the rear and will come with a certificate of authenticity
In order to celebrate the launch of the print sale, I am offering my readers an impressive 50% discount for a limited time. Simply use the code CORN50 at the checkout (it will work on either size). Depending on the demand, I may close the offer relatively quickly so please don't delay if you are tempted. Shipping is free in the UK and there is a modest charge for the rest of the world. You are responsible for any taxes that your country imposes.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions about the print and / or offer.
By way of a nod to the festive season, may I present this modest (but significant) print offer.
I am offering for sale a limited edition of just ten darkroom prints of my 35mm photograph Rain Lanterns. The prints are approximately 9x6 inches, on Ilford’s superlative Multigrade Art 300 paper. This is an archival material that will therefore last for many, many years if properly cared for. It has an eggshell, slightly pitted surface and beautiful tonality.
The offer is significant because it is the first time I have made a darkroom print available for sale. Prints will be signed and numbered on the reverse, and will come with a certificate of authenticity. The certificates will bear an Ilford authentic fine art print label. I will not print any more of this edition (designated 2016), although I may choose to make future editions (these will be labelled appropriately, so that the current, and first, edition will be identifiable).
If you are ordering in the UK and do so before the 18th December, I will make every effort to ensure you get your print before Christmas. For orders outside the UK, please make them as soon as possible if you are looking for Christmas delivery. Due the nature of international postage, I can’t guarantee a pre-Christmas delivery, but I will ensure prints go out as soon as possible at my end. Postage is free for the UK, and there is a £10.00 charge per order for all other destinations.
