Since I make mats for my fine art work I may as well make mats for you! I stick to
archival mat of two colors – solid white or black with a white core.
Canvas prints have a textured surface and give photographs a softer look that to a certain degree resembles an oil painting. They come on a stretcher bar frame and the very edges of the image wrap around to the back. Each canvas is finished with a UV and scratch resistant coating making them durable to a variety of conditions. There are three available finishes – matte, satin and glossy. As mentioned my camera shoots at a 2:3 ratio, therefore fitting 12x18, 16x24, 20x30 and 24x36 sizes but images can be cropped to fit other sizes. Custom sizes can be quoted for.
All frames are subject to availability. Standard frames are thin black metal frames. Deluxe frames are wide black wooden frames.
To better protect your print I recommend using UV glass. Non reflective glass can be useful too, but may soften the detail of the photo.
|Frame Size||UV or Non-Reflective||UV Non-Reflective|
All prints are archival. Please let me know your final intended use for the print, this will affect how I print the image for you. My camera has a 2:3 photo ratio, this means the photo will fit exactly to a 4x6, 10x15 and 20x30 paper size perfectly, but not to an 8x10 or 16x20. For all prints I add black borders to maintain the original photo proportions, but this means you will need custom mats. If you intend to purchase standard frames from a store with precut mats, for example an 11x14 frame with a precut mat of 8x10 then I would need to print a cropped image at 8x10 without borders. You will lose some of the edge of the image from both printing and behind the mat when mounted. I would strongly recommend custom made mats.
$75 set-up, $75 per hour, minimum $100.
The $75 per hour rate also applies to other work such as copystand work for slides, and post production work such as Photoshop editing.
$125 base rate, $75 per hour, min one hour.
Travel at the current IRS rate per mileage.
Any incurred expense, such as parking.
A non-refundable deposit of $50 may be required to book the rental of lighting equipment.
Requirements – a low light room at location of minimum 15ft by 15ft. The darker the room the more accurate the color reproduction will be.
I use a digitally calibrated system for accurate results. My camera, monitor, prints and slides are all calibrated. I use a unique calibration system developed by a colleague in the photography industry that is not yet available on the market. The system gives results far more accurate than shooting directly with slide film.
The studio now has a high end 12.4 megapixel digital SLR camera that is capable of reproducing prints at 20x30 at the highest quality. Please request this camera if you are needing prints at this size. For larger prints I can now have your work scanned for $75 per piece, also using a calibrated system.
Slide film is $30 per 36 exposure roll (includes development) plus time to shoot.
Time for copystand work varies depending on the number of slides required per piece of artwork. 5 or more takes 15 mins,
3 or 4 takes 20 mins, 1 or 2 takes 30 mins.
Mailing 2 rolls of slides is $5.
Please note that the 1st and last image on a 36 roll can sometimes be an incomplete image, therefore please calculate the number of rolls based on 34 slides and consider anything else a bonus. From researching various labs I have chosen the most consistent and reliable, but please note that lab development is out of my immediate control.
All canvas prints come on stretcher bars and have a UV scratch resistant coating. Standard finish has white sides and is stapled on the sides. Gallery wrap attaches to the rear and includes colored sides such as black, add 2” per side to wrap around. Other giclee fabrics are available on request.
$0.14 per square inch plus $2 per total length
Example: a 16x20 standard finish. (16x20 x0.14) + (16+20) x2 = $116.80
All prints are made on archival low reflective photosensitive luster paper estimated to last over 75 years without noticeable fading. This is the paper I use for all of my Fine Art photography work. Larger sizes are available on request. Please remember that the dimensional ratio of your art work is unlikely to fit exactly to a print paper size, therefore please inform me of your needs. My standard is to add black borders around the art work.
Since I make mats for my fine art work I may as well make mats for you! I stick to archival mat of two colors – solid white or black with a white core.
Frames available on request.
1st CD of images free, $10 thereafter.
A rush fee of $25 will be charged for prints and slides required within 7 days.
Prices do not include sales tax. Slides and prints are subject to 9% sales tax. Prints for resale do not need to be taxed if a business tax number is provided.
If a particular time has been scheduled please be on time or early, billing may start at the scheduled time and finish time may be limited if I have other appointments.
Payment for shooting must be received at the time of shoot. All expenses such as prints, film purchase and development must be received in advance.

To help keep costs down by speeding things up and to achieve better results there are a number of things you can do:
The following are standards I work to, if you require something different you must let me know. Samples of slides and prints are available on request.
I simply charge for time, it depends on what degree of accuracy you want as to what it will cost. Here are some rough guides to help, estimates include shooting and editing times:
A client wants 1 Archival Photo Print of 10 watercolor paintings of precise color reproduction. She brings a friend to help unload the paintings from her car.
We photograph and correct all 10 pieces in 60 minutes, $50 set-up and $75 for time. I produce 10 prints of each at 8x12 size for $10 each: 10 x 10 + 125 = $225 total, or $22.50 per print.
She later decides she wants 20 slides each of 5 pieces to enter Art Fairs next year. We already have the photos and she has taken this cost into account for the prints. 3 rolls of film at $30 plus 9% sales tax = $65.40. 45 minutes work = $56.25, total $121.65 which is approximately $1.20 per slide.
