Sample Kits

This is a copy of part of the Sample kit that Northwest Artistic Photography will be offering to prospective buyers. The kit will include three 4x5 copies; one printed on Kodak Metallic Paper, one printed on Kodak Lustre Paper, and one printed on Kodak Glossy Paper. These are all high quality Kodak Endura Professional papers. This will allow customers to choose the paper type that is right for their application. Customers will also be able to see variations in water, color, and environment, due to paper choice.

Our favorite is the Kodak Metallic Paper; it allows for a higher contrast image. With its pearlescent layer, water shimmers, lights glow, and colors radiate. (Figuratively speaking, of course.) Kodak Metallic Paper is best viewed without glass. We recommend 3/16", 1/2", or 1" Gator board for mounting and hanging. When mounting the Kodak Metallic Paper under glass, you will lose some of the pearlescent feel.

Kodak Lustre Paper is a very nice all round choice. This paper looks great under all glass. If you are going to use anti-reflection glass or museum quality glass, Lustre is going to work very well.

Kodak Glossy Paper is great for showing off photos. The glossy paper works well under glass or mounted "gallery" style with Gator board for displaying.

Thanks for stopping by.

Global Credit Union Print Display

I currently have 7 prints displayed at Global Credit Union. This is one of thier lending centers, located on Post and Riverside (726 W. Riverside) in Downtown Spokane. If you're interested, please stop by and take a look. All of the prints were printed on Kodak Metallic paper and range in size from 16x24 to 20x24.
If you are interested in purchasing a copy of one of these prints at the sizes above, they will be $225 each and they will be flush mounted on 1/2 inch Gatorboard. The mounts are very light and strong. These are high quality display prints.

These are part of a series of night shots that I have taken over the years. The Space Needle and Ella's Supper Club were both shot on Medium Format films, then scanned so that I could have them printed at my local photo lab. The rest of the images are digital files shot with my Canon EOS 5D, using various techniques; long exposure, 2nd curtain sync w/flash, and high dynamic range (HDR).

I always enjoy listening to your comments about my work. Please leave a message or send me an email.
