Newfoundland Limited Edition Fine Art Black and White Folio

This fall I’m thrilled to announce the addition of Fine Art Folios to my line of fine art photographic prints. They are a unique way of collecting and viewing fine art photography. And, best of all, they are affordable!

Instead of large prints for displaying on walls, folios comprise a selection of images representing a central theme. They are completely hand-made, contain anywhere from 5-15 original prints, and are small enough to view hand-held. Folios can also be a low-cost entry into the rewarding world of art collecting and can act as a springboard for obtaining larger display prints.

Over time I plan to regularly add and offer new folios based on different themes. These themes may range from minimalist landscapes, nature studies, seascapes, and various black-and-white projects.

Newfoundland, Sea, Sky, Land, and Ice Folio

My initial offering in the world of fine art folios is Newfoundland, Sea, Sky, Land, and Ice. This folio comprises twelve black and white images representing my first trip to Newfoundland and Labrador in April 2023.

All of the elements in the title of this folio comprise the essence of Newfoundland, affectionally known by locals as The Rock. Each image was carefully chosen to illustrate these elements and the raw and rugged nature of Newfoundland.

On my first trip to Newfoundland and Labrador, I drove over 2500 miles during 24 days. I chose to visit in May, expecting moderately seasonable weather for this part of the year. In reality, the weather was more like early March. Trees and shrubs were still bare, the wind was constant and chilling, and a few days even had snow. Pack ice and icebergs were present on most of the northern coasts, inlets, and bays. On the ferry from Newfoundland to Labrador there was so much pack ice a Coast Guard ice breaker was guiding the ferry to the landing. All of this gave a stark reminder that the cold harsh elements of the Arctic were not far away.

While my photographic archives are overwhelmingly color images, black-and-white photography retains a very special place in my heart. Moreover, given the circumstances and elements of my Newfoundland trip, black and white is the obvious choice to convey the raw and rugged mood of the province.

BW Photo Highlights of 2022

BW Photo Highlights of 2022

For the first time in quite a few years, I’m posting some of my favorite black and white photo highlights of the past 12 months. Every year I do a Photo Highlights blog post, but those are usually just color photos. This isn’t because I’m not a fan of b/w photography. In fact, like many photographers, I’m a huge fan of black and white.

Back in the days of film most photography classes used b/w to teach students the fundamentals of composition, exposure, and processing. Most of my favorite photographers were and still are those who specialize in b/w.  However, as my career in photography progressed I gradually drifted away from the medium. The main reason for this is due to the fact that nearly every client I worked with is only interested in color images. So yes, like many other things in life it’s a financial thing.

But I still love black and white photography and will always create new images in the medium. So, without further ado, here are ten of my favorite b/w images from 2022. Feel free to comment and vote for your favorites! And of course, all of these images are available as beautiful limited-edition prints!
