Print Purchasing Info – Contact/Questions

If you are enquiring about purchasing a print
or a possible commercial commission,
please contact one of Kevin’s representatives:
If a larger print is desired (I print these photographs up to 16 feet or so) please enquire for price. Sometimes the size is determined by the actual photograph and how I think it will look, where it will be viewed, lighting, etc. Frequently very large prints are printed on canvas and hung as murals,,, quite striking in a room,,, if you ask me
Normally I print my Still Lifes about 8×10 to 11×14 inches (20.3×25.4 to 27.9×35.6 cm),,, occasionally larger,,, but rarely,,, so far anyway. This is a throwback to my pre-digital days and how I “See”,,, or SAW the photographs when I created them,,, In THOSE days, I photographed nearly all my still lifes on 8×10 or 4×5 inch film (20.3×25.4 or 10.6×12.7 cm),,, which seemingly impacts the way I print them,,, to this day
In any event, Still Life prints are offered at $700.00
nonPanorama Landscapes (people, dogs, horses, etc. too):
prints vary in size, but they will range between roughly 11×14 to 14×17 inches,,, sometimes larger, but very rarely smaller. If you’re concerned with what may seem as vagueness with the size specifications,,, enquire and we’ll work it out. I assure you though, whatever size I choose to print my photographs at is not determined by economy or “profit”,,, the size I print at is purely my esthetic judgement, which would be difficult if not impossible to put into words…,,, In any event, Still Life & nonPanorama prints are offered at $700.00

Once a photograph printed on Cotton Rag “dries” (2 or more days) I begin my varnishing procedure(s). It’s a fairly lengthy process, with 3 major steps: 1) Seal The Inks, 2) Create An Isolation Layer, 3) Apply Multiple Coats Of Varnish. It takes several days to accomplish, but the whole point of this is to protect the print, increase its longevity and so on. One of the very important reasons to varnish the print is to protect it from UV light (Ultraviolet),,, which is bad for color pigments. All color pigments are subject to fading, but varnishing is one of the best ways to slow it down. In general, if you keep one of my photograph prints out of direct sunlight,,, or even near a source of indirect sunlight,,, my prints will last a VERY long time,,, certainly over a hundred years. FYI, it’s not as if that after 100, 150 or even 300 years the photograph will disappear,,, the color saturation just diminishes,,, so as I said,,, if you purchase a photograph of mine,,, or any piece of artwork,,, keep it away from sunlight !!!
Have questions??? Advice on framing??? Feel free to ask.
If you’d like to get in touch with me,,, with a question about photography, or the wonderful Donegal weather, etc,,, I’d love to hear from you, well most of you, anyway (no spammers please). Bear in mind that I am frequently “off the grid”,,, usually working,,, but nevertheless unable to receive emails, texts etc. Consequently I can’t always reply in a timely fashion,,, so if you get tired of waiting, consider contacting one of my Reps (details above).
