faq – Frequently Asked Questions

Are these pictures real?

All of my pictures are 100% real. I have cleaned up the odd dust speck, sharpened the pictures to improve them for larger printing and to give you the highest quality print but nothing has been added, deleted or colourized. Whatever nature has decided to produce is what is captured in my prints.

How limited are these prints?

The matted prints and smaller metal prints are unlimited and metal prints over 16×20 in size are limited edition prints and restricted to a maximum printing of only 250. There will be no second runs or other printing to preserve the unique nature of these high quality prints. Each print is signed and numbered.
