I was on a short trip, just driving around Victoria for three or four days, heading nowhere special but trying to go down roads I hadn’t driven a million times already. After a couple of days had gone by and I hadn’t taken one decent shot I was starting to question what I was doing out there (not unusual for me). On this morning the forecast was for fog so I got up before dawn with fingers crossed and went looking for something interesting. An hour or so later I still had nothing and was frustrated, annoyed and felt like packing it in and going home. But then I came upon this scene and I was so pleased with the image the last few days didn’t matter. For every shot I take that I think is good enough to print there are hundreds, sometimes thousands, that aren’t. Which means a lot of wasted time, lots of driving and lots of money spent and nothing to show for it. But, as I have to keep reminding myself, the more time I spend looking the more chance I have of finding something. You never know what’s around the corner.

Note: Both paper and canvas prints come rolled in acid free tissue paper inside a heavy-duty mailing tube (signature is required upon delivery).
The standard sized paper prints - A2, A1 and AO - are designed to fit off-the-shelf frame sizes but for custom framing (like the panorama prints which aren't standard sizes), I'd recommend taking them to a professional framer.
The canvas prints are much harder to do yourself so should also be taken to a framer. All the canvas prints have a mirror wrap edge (sometimes called gallery wrap) which means the image appears to continue around the side of the frame but it's actually a copy of the image, as if the image were held against a mirror. This way none of the image is 'lost' around the side, it just looks that way.
If you have any questions about the prints, the images or anything else, I'm always available through the contacts page.
