Fine Prints

 

I specialize in Fine Art Landscape Photography. I also cover travel and cityscape photography.  Selected pictures from my image library can be supplied as gallery quality fine art landscape prints to grace the walls of home and office.  Additionally, pictures are available for image licensing for a number of possible uses. Please contact me for prices and conditions of use.

 

I have been making photographs and evolving as a photographer for more than 35 years and one of the greatest joys I derive from photography is producing what is called the “Fine Print”. A Fine Print represents the highest quality interpretation of a photograph possible for the photographer, according to his/her insight. What they felt at the moment of making the photograph, the skills and materials used in printing and honestly knowing when the development of the image has reached its peak, and “knowing when to stop”. I started my printing experience with long hours in the traditional darkroom making black and white fine toned prints, however, I am very happy to be out of that potentially toxic environment working in a medium that gives me much more control!

 

All prints are individually printed at a high resolution using giclée (inkjet) technology, with the high quality  papers and 100-year pigment-based lightfast inks.  I print on an Epson R2880 printer using Epson ULTRACHROME K3 ink and Epson Premium semi gloss photo paper, and Epson Traditional Photo Paper. Epson UltraChrome K3 inks are designed to work as a system with Epson’s full range of professional media. Epson UltraChrome K3 ink provide lightfastness ratings of up to 108 years for color and over 200 years for black and white under rigorous industry accepted display conditions. Epson UltraChrome K3 ink and Epson Genuine Media perform as a perfectly matched system that provides the industry’s best combination of quality output and longevity enabling the display and sales of prints to the most demanding clients.

 

The issue of exact colour balancing is the bane of all photographers and graphic designers when it comes to the faithful reproduction of colour and tone in photographs. Due to the high variability of computer screens when it comes to colour fidelity it is possible that a Fine Art Print’s colour balance may not exactly match what you see on your computer screen, just as this website’s colours may look slightly different on a different computer screen to the one you are currently using. For example, some computer users prefer to set their screens to a high-contrast and high-saturation setting, both of which tend to exaggerate colours on-screen.

 

The only guarantee that Ross Hyde Photo can offer in this respect is that the Fine Art Prints offered here are printed directly from the original image from which the low-resolution images you see on-screen have been resampled. The process of resampling the original files for display on the website use does not introduce any shifts in colour balance from that of the original image.

 

Customers need to be aware, therefore, that due to possible variations in computer screen colour fidelity their Fine Art Prints may show a very slight difference in colour balance compared to what they see on this website on-screen. This is entirely outside the control of Ross Hyde Photo and therefore, regretfully, cannot be covered by a guarantee. In practically every case, however, any such differences in colour balance (if there are any at all) are so slight as to be negligible.

 

Prints can be purchased matt only, framed and matted and canvas print.


Framing and matting will add to the dimensions of the image. All sizes quoted are approximate. The format size of each image varies dependent on cropping and panoramic size.
