Prints ... if you like any of my pictures enough to want to hang one on your wall then use the contact page to let me know. It's a very easy thing to pinch a picture from the web and print it out yourself but there are a few things that maybe you might not be aware of ...

The images on this site are low resolution pictures made specifically to allow the speedy loading of web pages. They are made up of seventy two dots of colour per square inch. It may sound like a lot but a decent print will contain at least three hundred dots per square inch, and sometimes considerably more. And its those better resolution copies that I have in my possesion

Secondly there is a great difference between projected light and reflected light. Projected light is what you are looking at right now, on the screen and it behaves in an entirely different way to the reflected light that is bounced back from a printed photograph ... and it is for that reason that some photographs, particularly Black and White ones, exist in two versions ... one for the screen and one for the page.

A photograph can change immensely depending on what paper it is printed on. Some pictures suit certain papers more than others. And lastly, there is the matter of the printer, if yours doesn't posses at least four different types of black cartridge then you shouldn't be printing photographs for the wall.

So, if you'd like the right version at a decent resolution, printed on the right paper with good archival ink then get in touch.
