Step-by-step guide

We offer a variety of different products and sizes. At first this may seem like a daunting task to choose, but if you follow these simple steps you will be rewarded with the right print for your needs:

  1. Decide whether you would prefer to receive a finished wall display product, or instead frame a photographic print it yourself or at your local framing store.
  2. How big would you like your prints? Bigger prints leave a much stronger visual impact, but you may wish to consider available space and cost. 24x16" or 18x12" may be a good starting point.
  3. Aspect ratio - some images may be cropped differently. Once you select one size you can see a preview of your print in the later stages of ordering process. If the cropping should be different please go back and select another better matching size from the list. Please note: you may be able to specify your own cropping should you wish to do so. You may even decide to make square or a wide panoramic print!
  4. Available paper options and different finished products:
  • Metallic - a distinct vibrant pearl look with extra glossy finish and vivid colours is perfect for outstanding landscape prints
  • Glossy - a traditional reflective paper suited for most images
  • Matte - a traditional slightly textured less reflective paper for framed prints, portraits and most images
  • Fine art prints - long life prints on high quality paper suitable for exhibitions and framing
  • Framed prints - ready to hang images on your wall. You can customise frame and mount design before ordering. Images are printed on matte paper
  • Canvas - modern borderless print for contemporary home or office
  • Box frame and edge print - an alternative to frames - a blend between a frame and canvas. Prints are laminated with anti-scratch seal.
  • Acrylic - ultra modern look achieved by sandwiching prints between sheets of transparent acrylic

VOUCHERS

If you have a voucher code please enter it in the checkout to receive your discount. We regret that once the order is processed we can no longer apply vouchers codes to your order.

Print Quality and Screen Calibration

All our products are printed in the leading professional photo labs near you. This means that every photo receives special attention to make sure you receive great products free from colour cast or blemishes.

Our photographs are edited using professionally calibrated screen equipment. To ensure that your prints match the view on your screen we recommend using calibrated monitors. Apple Macbook pro retina and 3rd or later generation iPad devices have some of the best colour accuracy out of the box. Most laptops however display bluish images with varying brightness across the screen and therefore could be misleading.

Please also make sure that you are using an up-to-date modern web browser that supports colour management.

If there are any doubts about a large order please contact us to order small-size sample proofs or ask us for free image customisation for your needs.

Pricing

The product pricing reflects the value of the artwork and the overall service. Travel and Landscape photography requires serious dedication, an enormous amount of time and very significant investment. There is a lot of planning involved in every shoot, and even then the conditions may not be right at the end of the day. I usually have to revisit every location several time before I can make a shot I am truly happy with. It is not uncommon to walk through the rain or on dangerous flooded coastal path and scramble steep rocks. The journey of the image doesn't end the moment a photographer "presses the button" (and there is a lot of technical and creative skill involved in this "simple" step) - it could take up to several hours of post processing time to achieve the desired end result. Finally, there are web hosting fees and marketing, insurance, travel costs, equipment maintenance and upgrade, seminars and creative projects to pay for. Your valued support helps us to continue working and inspires to innovate and create amazing new work for you.

Terms and conditions

If you are not happy with the quality of the products including printing faults or damage during delivery please let us know within 7 days after receiving the order and we will do our best to send you a replacement as soon as possible.

The products are produced specifically for each order with custom specifications, therefore we regret that we are unable to exchange or refund bespoke orders if you simply change your mind. Please contact us in advance to discuss the product specification and / or any custom modifications.

Prints may not be scanned, reproduced, modified or duplicated. However, you are entirely free to sell, donate or trade your print should you wish to do so.

Digital copies may not be used without a valid license in any way. Such practices are illegal and may be punishable by law. There is nothing more insulting to a photographer than seeing their work used commercially for gain without attribution and taking away the well deserved financial support.
