Here you will find some common questions I am asked on a regular basis. Please contact me if you have any other questions?
What is Art?
Actually this is a question I often ask myself & I am still unable to anwser it.
What is Fine Art Photography?
Fine art photography refers to images that are created in accordance with the creative vision of the photographer as artist. Fine art photography stands in contrast to photojournalism, which provides visual support for stories. With fine art photography it is not necessary to depict reality as it is but interpret it as an artist. The term fine art photography does not have any one definition and allows the artist total freedom to use their imagination and multiple creative techniques. As photography evolves so to does our idea of fine art photography.
What is Organic Photo-Montage?
Montage is an art form which consists of putting together or assembling various smaller pictures to create a larger work; an artistic composite; To combine or depict into a montage.Photo-montage is the merging of multiple images, textures and other organic matter in a seamless photographic collage.
“Organic Photo Montage” is how I describe my style of creating images. It is a form of fine art photography which has taken me many years to develop and it continues to evolve in an exciting progressive way.Every artwork is unique and many ideas are explored as traditional fine art skills (film) are merged with modern technology (digital) in a fluid, dynamic way.
What papers do you print with
I primarily use the Hahnemühle Collection of Fine Art Papers. HP Hahnemühle® Watercolour Paper is a high-quality, acid-free paper perfect for professional digital fine art reproduction. The natural white material contains 50% cotton rag content for added strength and durability.
What are Limited Editions?
A limited edition is restricted in the number of copies available, which gives them their value and exclusivity. Because the number of prints released and in circulation are limited they make them highly collectable in the artworld. A limited edition is normally hand signed and numbered by the artist, typically in pencil, in the form (eg): 14/100. The first number is the number of the print itself. The second number is the number of overall prints the artist will print of that image. A small number of “artists’ proofs” may also be produced as well, signed and with “AP”, “proof” etc.
What are Open Editions?
An open edition is a series of prints that do not have assigned numbers and are not limited in print run numbers. They are often hand signed by artists but dont have the same collectable value attached.
