When looking for fine art to display in a home or office there are many options to choose from. One of the primary decisions to make is what type of artwork should one choose. In the genre of fine art landscape and nature photography, there is a seemingly infinite amount of photographers out there selling prints. Among them, the visual quality of their images varies considerably. Some are newcomers to photography or hobbyists with limited technical skills and artistic vision. While others have spent their entire lives studying art and honing their style and techniques.

After choosing the artwork the next decision is what style of print is most suitable for the space. There are many different types of prints available, but basically, they fall into two categories. First, those that do not need frames and are ready to hang. These prints are canvas wraps, metal, and acrylic. Second, are loose paper prints that will need a mat and frame to display. Nearly every photographer selling prints labels them as Fine Art. But that alone does not automatically mean it fits the definition of Fine Art.

Some photographers chose to sell their images through one or more of the many Print-on-Demand Art Marketplace websites. Through sites like these, a photographer can sell low-cost prints with minimal effort involved. The drawback here is that the artist has little control over the printing process and the materials used. Mostly there is no input or feedback from the printer to the artist, with files being printed “as is”. The end print is not a unique work of art, and the appearance may differ widely from the original. And finally, the print may ship to the customer in flimsy packaging prone to damage.

A Better Approach to Fine Art Prints

My Photography and Fine Art Prints however are on the other end of that spectrum. I’ve devoted my entire life to landscape and nature photography. It’s what I do, period. And I’m constantly working to improve my vision and techniques. To that end, many photos seen on this site are the result of returning to a location or subject multiple times over the years. And then, critically processing, and editing files, to match a previsualized image.

But my passion doesn’t end there. I strive to distinguish my prints as truly Fine Art by carefully selecting the appropriate styles of presentation and using the highest quality materials and fine art printing services available.

All of my prints can be considered individual custom works of art. Every print begins with me preparing the file for the size and style chosen by the customer. This is because unlike Print-on-Demand companies one size does not fit all. For example, a file for a 40×60 acrylic print needs to be adjusted differently than that for a 20×30 photographic paper print, or a canvas wrap.

The printer I use for all my work is one of the best in the country and specializes in working one on one with artists of all mediums. They use the best materials available and employ master printers with years of experience. Their attention to detail also doesn’t stop with the print. They also have dedicated craftsmen making custom crates to ensure that prints will arrive at their destination in perfect condition.

And finally, all of my prints come with a specially printed and signed Certificate of Authenticity and which will designate between Open Editions and Limited Editions. Throughout this process, I’m always in touch with the customer. All of this ensures that your print will be a unique investment and one that can be proudly displayed for years to come.

Among the several styles of prints I offer, the TruLife Diasec Acrylic print has a visual impact like no other. While paper prints with a double mat and frame have a timeless classic look, acrylic prints are the ultimate print for a high-end contemporary presentation. 

There are other acrylic prints available at a lower cost, but once again they may not be the best option. Normal acrylic is subject to glare, delamination, abrasion, damaging UV rays, and more.  However, TruLife Diasec Acrylic prints are not vulnerable to these flaws. Below are some of the advantages of a TruLife Diasec Acrylic print.

Benefits of DIASEC Face Mount to Acrylic:

    • DIASEC is a tried-and-true process since 1969
    • DIASEC Acrylic Face Mount has a lifetime guarantee against delamination on the face of the print.
    • DIASEC uses a Proprietary Catalyst (hardener) and a proprietary silicone-type gel to permanently bond the face of the print to the acrylic.
    •  Permanent adhesion to the face of the print.
    • A DIASEC Face Mount also adds additional UV protection in front of the print.
    • DIASEC contains no plasticizers and is resistant to fungicidal matter, bacterial agents, air-borne pollutants, and contaminants.
    • The finished DIASEC product remains flexible, enabling it to withstand changes in temperature and humidity,

I am proud to be able to offer such an outstanding option for displaying my images. But of course, it is up to the customer to decide which style of prints is most suitable for their chosen space. For the other styles available please refer to my Fine Art Photographic Prints page.

Recently I had the opportunity to work with a local interior designer to provide fine art prints for a local investment company. Jody Kennedy at Kennedy Interior Design asked me to provide images as part of the office remodeling project. After selecting five images with a Pacific Northwest theme we chose metal prints to match the clean contemporary theme of the offices. The client was very happy with the results. And as you can see here the prints add a warm modern and professional look to the offices.

Fine Art Office and Employees

Aside from making offices more attractive to visitors fine art helps make for a more productive environment. Artwork in offices can also reduce stress and improve morale among employees. Because of this an attractive work environment can also help reduce employee turnover. And in today’s stressful work environment of long hours that is a big plus for employers. Businesses are routinely requiring staff to work anywhere from 8-12 hours a day six to seven days a week. Workplace burnout is now a growing problem throughout the world.

Some businesses may be unwilling to spend thousands of dollars on what may be considered frivolous decorations. However, if artwork boosts productivity and sales by a considerable percentage, and retains employees, then it can be viewed as a wise investment. Compare the cost of artwork versus the cost of constantly hiring and training new employees. In the long run, artwork is a much cheaper option. In that light, an investment in office artwork is a big win for businesses.

Artwork Clients & Branding

Additionally, think of the impact artwork can have on office visitors. Will a client be inclined to do business with a company whose offices are plain and unwelcoming? Or will an office with a warm modern design and thoughtful artwork incline a client to look favorably on the business?

A modern interior design with tasteful artwork communicates to your clients that your business takes pride in its appearance. It shows the business not only cares about its employees but also its clients. In addition, artwork puts the visitor at ease by bringing back fond memories and experiences. It can also help break the ice in an important meeting and have the client communicate more freely.

Artwork and interior design can also be a valuable extension of a business’s branding. A business can choose art that matches and enhances its external branding like marketing and websites while building on its character and mission statement.

In this post I’d like to illustrate the benefits of fine art imagery for healthcare facilities.  Many studies have shown that landscape and nature images bring warmth, and beauty into many interiors. In addition to these qualities they can also add a sense of calm and healing in healthcare facilities. These are some of the reasons why many hospitals and clinics choose artworks of the natural world for their facilities.

Recently I had the opportunity to provide fine art display prints for a clinic in Bellingham, Washington. The Mount Baker Vision Clinic was in the process of a major renovation. As part of their remodel they needed to update the artwork on their walls. The owners wanted to keep a Northwest theme, and therefore selected images mostly from nearby locations.

After a series of consultations they selected eleven images for their lobby and exam room corridors. All of the images were finished in a classic fine art print manner. Framed* in black brushed aluminum, archival mounting, with double mats using 4ply archival museum board, and non-reflective glass. Looking at the photos in this post, you can see how this traditional style of presentation has maintained the tone in the clinic, as well as adding a degree of elegance.
