Prices

I do not sell my work online, and I do not sell electronic copies. This allows me to maintain control of quality and quantity, and to hand number and sign the work. You can contact me to see what is available and discuss pricing.

Before I talk about pricing, though, a question: Why, in this screen-dominated age, would I buy a photographic print? There are many reasons.

  • First, it’s a real thing, an artifact, tangible. It has a physical presence. You can touch it (though please, not the actual image surface) and the photographer/artist touched it, signed it, numbered it, may have written details on the back or margin…
  • It’s probably way bigger than the screen of your phone or tablet.
  • It will be of a vastly superior quality than what your phone or tablet can reproduce.
  • It will outlast your digital images. Paper won’t crash.
  • If it’s on your wall, you’re going to spend time with it, and you will see new things in it. You can’t go uh-huh and just swipe past it.
  • You will see it in different lights. Sometimes, if it’s behind glass, you won’t really be able to see it – you’ll have to work at it a bit.
  • Your friends will see and admire it. It might start a conversation. And you won’t have to spend the time flipping through the hundreds of images on your phone.
  • You’ll own it. maybe others will own other copies, but this one is yours. Just yours. If it’s numbered, you have that sense of owning a rarity.
  • Watch the photographers in the Epson Print Your Legacy series on YouTube.

OK – so back to pricing. I can’t keep a running inventory with prices online (well, I could – I’m pretty good at the technology really), but to give you an idea, my pricing is based on the following factors:

  • The size of the work. I tend to stay with the traditional sizes or photographs, so most of my pieces are 11×17″ or smaller, down to 10×7″.
  • The number of prints in the edition, and the availability. Most of my works are limited to 3 or 5 prints, while some older images ran to as many as 10 prints. Occasionally, I will limit an image to one print. Most images also have one or two Artist Proofs. Smaller editions cost more, and I raise the price (gently) as the series sells out.
  • The complexity of the image. A technically difficult image like Kalashnikov’s Dream will cost more than an uncropped image that required little adjustment.
  • Framing, especially those images like Floating Dock that really should have museum glass to cut reflection of ambient light. I will sell unframed images.
  • The age of an image. Sometimes I sell off older work.
  • Whether I want the image out there. Canadian Idle and Canadian Idle-Ice Cap are signed but unlimited, and sell for about $100.

An image like Floating Dock, framed with museum glass, ~17×11″, will cost about $350.00. Images in the series The Fallen will cost about the same – they are very complex, with manipulated imagery and text, and are nearly sold out.

Full-size (~17×11″) Florals are in the $150-$200 range, and are usually limited to 3 or 5 prints.

Smaller images (~10×7″), like the series from Hadrian’s Wall or Newmarket’s Fairy Lake Boardwalk, are about $50 each, or $175 for a series of 4 images.

Please contact me to discuss sales. I will also lease within Newmarket.
