What Art means to you

What Art means to you

We are pretty sure that the art we create has a unique meaning to everyone. We feel that there is always an emotion attached. Something that brings you back to a time, an adventure, or a feeling. For some reason, images of trees bring back childhood memories for many. It could’ve been a camping trip, a tree house, a rope swing, a trip to a lake, climbing trees, a hike or maybe even your childhood backyard.

Water, promotes tranquility and relaxation. The visuals can even recall the sounds of waves or rushing water,  the smell of sea water, and even the feeling of the mist in the air. Desert scenes have a similar effect but carry solitude and warmth.

Wildlife is different because for many it is a personal encounter, but for others it actually brings a sense of adventure or excitement. We feel wildlife is majestic in this way. Its not just about a past experience, they can carry you into the future.

Every image is a destination, but we think it truly represents a journey. Either one from days long ago or one that is yet to come. We know that every image has a different journey for each person, but we feel like we were able to take each of you on the journey with us.

Photography as Art

Photography as Art

I am sure you are reading this on either your retina or HD display Laptop, or perhaps a 27″ iMac (or maybe something even bigger), and there could also be a 55″ or larger HD (or 4k, or more) television somewhere in your home. Any of which can display stunning images in brilliant colors. Then there are also those who are so eager to show off their cellphone photos. So, with all this technology, are printed image still of interest?

We think so, and we think the proof is everywhere around you. First literally, if you look around any public area, you will see images printed onto something. If you were to attend and art fair or a craft show, you will likely see several photographers selling prints. 

Second, on the photographer side, it seems like a new printing company is popping up every week. And, the tried and true companies are continuing to expand. They are hiring employees and adding printers. The labs are also coming out with  new photographic papers, inks, and mounting options. 

Clearing new artists are emerging and new printing options are being created, neither of which would continue to grow in photographic art was going by the wayside.

With all that said, now is a perfect time to those who appreciate nature to collect photographic prints. The quality of images being produced today is better than ever before. Every part of the equation is better, the cameras, lenses, labs, print surfaces, inks or dyes, and most importantly the photographers.

New Website

Titans in the Mist

New website!

Over the past 15 years we have had several websites. As technologies advances and personal preferences change. We have decided to put the creative control back into our own hands once again.

Oxbow Autumnal Sky

Why We switched

The biggest factor for changing our site again was to increase the focus to our fine art prints. We wanted more control over our printing and a more a personal connection with our customers. We have narrowed our product and size options to what we feel are the best options available on the market today. This change also allows us to handle custom orders directly with collectors.

Looking for your own website?

If you are looking to publish your images online there are some great services our there like SmugMug. They have some very simple drag and drop options and they even have print order fulfillment options. We still support using smugmug. and if you would like to check them out. Click Here and if you end up creating site with them you will save 15% off an annual subscription by following the link. 

If you may also want to check our another company called Wide Range Galleries. They have a nice portfolio of photographer websites. They are a little pricey but if you don’t want pay sales commissions or learn to build your own, they are top notch.

Ultimately we built our own website. Over the last 20 years we have designed several websites for other businesses and it was just the right time to design one centered on the fine art side of photography.
