Printing Process

As a rocket scientist, you can imagine exacting detail and unsurpassed quality is in my blood. All my images are digitally captured with the highest quality professional digital SLR cameras and lenses.

To create my printed artwork, I use only the best in Fine Art Laboratories. My computer is color calibrated to match the printing profile of my laboratory to ensure the most accurate results possible.  I artist proof all work before release to my collectors and I maintain the strictest standards of printing of my art.  If something is not right, I expect my laboratory to fix it.

If the photograph is to be printed on paper, I use only Hahnemühle fine art baryta – the best fine art paper available, in my humble opinion.

According to Hahnemühle, “Hahnemühle FineArt Baryta is a bright white, cellulose-based FineArt inkjet paper with an inkjet coating specially tailored for FineArt use. The clearly visible, exquisite felt structure lends the paper its lovely soft feel and tactile surface texture to produce prints with stunning three-dimensional quality and depth. The high-gloss premium inkjet coating guarantees outstanding print results with a perfect reproduction of color and detail, deep blacks, and striking contrasts. The barium sulphate within the coating gives FineArt Baryta the feel of a traditional analog baryta paper. The acid- and lignin-free FineArt inkjet paper meets the most exacting requirements for age resistance. FineArt Baryta is a versatile classic for FineArt applications and sets standards in the printing of both black and white and color photographs.”

My laboratory only prints on the best acrylics and metals. They use only archival inks. These materials ensure the best life and lasting value of your investment.

Care should be taken, not to expose the image to high levels of moisture or sunlight. The print should be treated as an original fine art watercolor painting. Choosing a location having normal humidity levels and minimum exposure to ultraviolet light will provide many years of pleasurable viewing.
