The Photographic Print

Armed with phones that have cameras in our pockets, millions of people are taking and sharing pictures every day. By some accounts, it is estimated that billions of people with smartphones took some 1.2 trillion pictures in 2017. Many of those images will be shared on social media, but many more will simply be forgotten. We swipe, we like, we move on. Much of our online visual consumption is temporary, fleeting, perhaps engaging for only a passing moment.

With a long history of technological change and constant improvements, the photographic print is as relevant today as it was when the process to make prints was first realized. Whether a print is hung on your wall in a room in your house or is part of a larger collection of art, the print is real and lasting. And more than a passing like and a swipe, the print, and your ownership of it, is as much a part of your story, as it is about why the photographer took it.

Limited Edition Prints

Value and meaning that speaks to your heart

Richard’s small batch Limited Editions are an affordable entry point to own photographic prints that speak to your heart – whether that print is a single piece of art in your home or you decide to pursue your own collection of photographic prints.

Each edition has an absolute limit of 25 total prints. Even if there are two different print sizes available, there will only be 25 prints in existence.  Richard prints much of his own work and each print comes with a certificate of authenticity that verifies the print number.  He also tracks print sales by number and edition in a master registry.

Small batch Limited Editions offer an accessible path to making photography part of the art in your life that stirs your soul.

Personal Exclusive Editions

A special connection to the art you own

Personal Exclusive Edition prints are built around a collaborative relationship between Richard and those who buy and love photography and his art.

Personal Exclusive Edition prints can begin with a conversation about your tastes and passions – which prints inspire you and what subjects capture your attention.  They can also begin with your desire to have Richard shoot something that means a lot to you.

In either case, because of the knowledge and relationship you and Richard form, a collection of photographs will be put together for your personal review.  Should you choose specific photographs you would like printed, these will be offered to you as one-of-a-kind, single edition —selected by you and only for you—and never to be reprinted.

These personal photographic prints become part of your story and the art that moves your soul. That’s what makes them personal and exclusive.

This is also another opportunity to continue the conversation about the art you’re venturing to find in life.

Some Things to Keep in Mind about Photographic Prints:

When viewing an image on your computer screen, the image is lit from behind. A print is lit from the light in your room, in other words, in front.  That impacts the visual “experience.”


Your computer screen settings likely saturate colors so there may be some tonal differences between the photograph you view online and the print version.  The digital darkroom your print comes from is likely “color managed” which makes the screen and print closely similar….just a note that your screen may be different.


Whether you own a vintage “dark room” print or a “digital” print, all prints need to be cared for to ensure longevity.  That means keep them out of direct light and be sure to use UV filtered glass in framing.


If you collect photography, you will want to consider how different photographers (or galleries or photographers’ estates) ensure “authenticity.”  Some factors to consider include: when was it printed; who did the printing; how is it signed; was it a limited edition, open edition or a single edition.


Today, photographic prints can take many forms given technological changes and new processes. For example, prints can come on fine art photography papers, fine art papers, canvas, metallic surfaces and more. Enjoy and explore these options and keep an open mind to what makes the photographic print best for you.


And, don’t forget, make smart and beautiful choices when it comes to your matting and framing.
