First Catch

Galveston Texas

A Limited Edition

I chose this photo because I fell in love with the fishers’ silhouettes against the early morning’s first light, and that I caught the wave crashing on the jetti.

I was in Galveston when I shot this, where you can find many people fishing at sunrise near the piers here.  Galveston is a coastal resort city and port off the southeast coast on Galveston Island and Pelican Island in the American State of Texas, and the northwestern coast of the Gulf of Mexico.

Sapphire Series | LUMACHROME TruLife Acrylic fine art prints

Sapphire Series | LUMACHROME TruLife Acrylic fine art prints

My most recommended fine art print medium to my clients is the Lumachrome TruLife Acrylic option. It offers the best quality materials and value, and comes with a lifetime guarantee. These pieces are my original artwork produced with Lumachrome HD archival paper, face mounted under crystal clear, scratch resistant, and non-reflective TruLife acrylic glass. Prints produced this way protect the life span of your art, and create vivid ranges of color lasting over 120 years, high definition details, a wide range of highlights and shadows, and an almost 3-D visual depth and dimensionality for your image. The resilience of TruLife acrylic is amazing.

The Lumachrome process uses a transparent color layer created with inkjet at high precision. It is then face mounted to 1/8th" TruLife acrylic glass, and then backed by a protective material. The TruLife Acrylic traps the light in the image, making it appear backlit when properly illuminated, and changes with the light allowing it to genuinely reflect its environment. This type of print needs to be seen to understand its illuminating properties, but please trust me that it is well worth your investment. Prints made in this fashion is what I got into photography to produce and specialize in.

Paired with my medium format camera, these images are like looking through a window, and are the best possible representation of what it’s like to actually be there.

My prints will arrive ready to hang with a museum quality ROMA back mounted floating frame that creates a crisp clean museum style look. No additional framing is necessary.

Ruby series | Fuji Flex standard acrylic fine art prints

Ruby series | Fuji Flex standard acrylic fine art prints

I offer a reduced cost acrylic option for those looking for the same vibrant, 3-D effect that a Lumachrome print has to offer. This type of print is crafted using Fuji Flex silver-halide archival paper on which the image is developed using Océ LightJet that uses technology originally designed by NASA. It is widely recognized to have the best detail and image quality in the industry for this type of print. I can personally attest to this because I have some hanging on my wall. The image is then face mounted to 1/8”, UV-resistant acrylic, before being back-mounted with a Sintra backer - still giving you enhanced depth and appearance. With these prints, premium TruLife Acrylic is not used, instead a standard, but still high quality UV-resistant acrylic is used. A composite frame also replaces the wood frame used in a TruLife Acrylic mounting. Standard acrylic is not anti-glare or scratch resistant, requiring more careful handling. You get the same image quality, but it has a significant cost reduction due to support materials used.

Emerald Series | CHROMALUXE ALUMINUM FINE ART PRINTS

Chromaluxe Aluminum HD Metal Prints are another visually stunning option, and sturdier in some senses. Images made this way are scratch resistant, incredibly fade resistant, and water proof. Prints on this medium are created using a process called dye sublimation which infuses the image onto silver metal using heat and pressure. Photographs created with this process are set apart by its image brilliance, clarity, and contrast. Chromaluxe prints do not use glass to cover it, and are finished with a float mount and wire system or Z-bar system on the reverse side for easy hanging on delivery. No exterior framing is necessary.

Loose Prints

Although you will get the absolute best quality, pricing, and least hassle framing your artwork directly through me, I do offer my unique pieces sold independently. These images come printed on the absolute best photographic paper. However, without the protection of one of my particular framing options, these images are not part of my limited edition series, DO NOT come with any archival protection, and will not hold or appreciate at the same value as my framed limited editions. For longevity, these images should be handled with the following care:

  • Frame them as quickly as possible behind some sort of glass
  • Keep them away from direct sunlight
  • Keep them in a cool, dry, and temperature controlled area with no humidity
  • To dust, wipe them down with a soft, DRY towel so you will not to ruin the ink (before framing), or scratch the image or glass. Do not use any cleaning sprays directly on the image.
