Prints, greeting cards, and exhibits

Most of the black and white photos on this site are available as prints, either matted and framed or just matted, and a small selection, mostly vertical images, as greeting cards.

Process:
Like Ansel Adams and most other 20th century photographers, I make my prints by hand in a traditional wet darkroom on double-weight fiber-based paper which is carefully processed and selenium toned for archival permanence. The art world calls these “silver-gelatin” (or “gelatin-silver”) prints.

Sizes:
I print on 11x14” and 16x20” paper. Actual image sizes will be a bit smaller to allow for borders and vary with the proportions of the photo. I matt and frame these prints at 16x20” and 20x24”, respectively. My mattes and backing are 4-ply white acid-free museum board for archival permanence. I use simple wooden frames with glass. If you prefer to do your own framing, my matted prints fit standard 16x20” and 20x24” frames.

Prices:
11x14” print matted 16x20”                                                            160.00

Notes:
State sales tax added to all California sales.
Payment by check or cash is fine; I’m presently unable to accept credit cards.
I am shipping only matted prints (and cards) to avoid possible glass breakage with framed prints. Reasonable packing and shipping charges will be added to matted print orders.
If you are in the San Francisco Bay area you can make purchases directly from me at my home in El Sobrante.
Since the price of my materials frequently increases, my print prices may increase without notice; I’ll try to keep prices listed here up-to-date.
Since I make my prints by hand in small batches, not all of my images are available as prints at any given time, but with 2-3 weeks advance notice, I can usually print any B&W image on my site.

Exhibits:
Orinda Books, 276 Village Square, Orinda, CA, has a permanent changing exhibit of four framed prints and a good supply of all of my greeting cards in their local artists section.

Future exhibits: I send emails about up-coming exhibits and classes to folks on my mailing list. Please email me to have yourself added to my list.

Note:
Some galleries exhibiting my work may charge slightly higher prices than shown above because they have considerable expenses to cover.
