As a photographer, I work within the broad context and tradition of the landscape, be it rural or urban. In particular, I am interested in the inter-relationship between humans and their environment; that which we create and alter, and that which in turn alters us. Whilst my work crosses the boundaries between documentary and fine art photography, I would prefer to describe myself as a humanist photographer; I believe that photographs can speak of things that where words fail, and can communicate those things to a Wider audience in an eloquent and beautiful form. Much of my work is created in places far afield such as China, Japan, Syria and Morocco. I was a photographer before I even picked up a camera, poring over copies of the National Geographic as a boy; I was curious and wanted to know about the world I live in and those others in it. This ethic still runs through my work; honesty, integrity and interest. That said, I also work in my own country and find the English an endless source of curiosity and interest.
Artful photographic prints are produced to the highest standard, using Giclee printing on 300 gsm 100% cotton rag fine art paper. This method, accepted by the art world for fine art reproduction, produces a high quality, archival grade digital print. The archival quality of the pigment ink with 100% cotton rag minimises the chemical reaction leading to image fading.
Because Giclee is widely regarded as one of the very best photographic and fine art printing methods it has become extremely popular with artists and photographers displaying their images in art galleries, museums and exhibitions.
Artful is proud to offer a high quality framing service that perfectly compliments the artwork. Using conservation quality wood mouldings, our handmade frames are built for each individual print and arrive ready to hang. The archival quality mount is acid free and pH neutral, so you can be confident your print is well protected.
Artful’s framing service is not only competitively priced but of the highest quality. If you have any requests for further framing options, get in touch.
Artful uses UPS for its UK and international shipping since they’re quick, trustworthy and affordable.
As soon as your artwork is ready to be dispatched, we’ll notify you with the shipping details and tracking number. For UK delivery, shipping is ‘Next Working Day’ but for international, it will take a small while longer.
As you'd expect, all artworks are packed with the utmost care to ensure they reach you safely, but If there is any problem with how an item has arrived we will address the issue immediately.
