For web browsing reasons, the images on this site are displayed at a low resolution and image quality is, therefore, not representative of that obtainable from a full resolution photographic print. I cannot stress this point enough - screen resolution is, at most, 10% of print resolution and even this vastly reduced image quality is totally dependent upon the quality and calibration of the monitor.
All images on this site were taken using digital cameras with a sensor resolution greater than 18 million pixels and the cameras I now use exclusively are both made by Leica - the S2 medium format DSLR which has a 37 million pixel, 45mm x 30mm, sized sensor and the M9 rangefinder, which has an 18 million pixel, 36mm x 24mm, sized sensor. Although many of the images on this website were taken using a Hasselblad H4D-50 camera, which has a 50 million pixel, 48mm x 36mm, sized sensor, I no longer use this camera as I ultimately found it unsuitable for use in anything other than a studio environment and certainly not in the harsher conditions encountered in the mountainous areas of the British Isles.
All images are prepared by myself using industry standard RAW conversion software and Adobe Photoshop for the final TIFF image. Other than adjusting each image to remove any dust and blemishes and to enhance contrast and saturation, the images are not digitally manipulated and remain faithful to my recollection of the original scene.
Digital imaging has progressed immensely since I first began using it in 2004 and images taken on the camera systems used are capable of producing high resolution images, with the ability to produce large photographic prints of great tonal purity and colour depth.
To retain this image resolution, tonal purity and colour depth, photographs are printed on heavyweight, matte finish, digital fine art paper, using archival quality inks tested to remain stable for 100 years or more.
For ease of handling and framing, all prints have a white border and are signed and limited to editions of 100 each, per print size. Print sizes quoted include the border.
Prints up to A2 size (24"x17") are made by myself using the latest Epson Stylus Pro 4900 printer. Larger prints are made by a specialist photographic printing company.
To ensure complete customer satisfaction, I would recommend that only images taken on the Leica S2 or Hasselblad cameras are used for the largest print size offered - that of A1. To aid this selection, the camera used to capture each image is noted in the image narrative.

Should you wish any of the images on this website in black and white as opposed to colour, again please use the contact section of my site to send me an email giving details of your needs.
