My printing process:

Beginning in 1975, I began processing my own B&W films and making prints. In the 90s, I mastered the art of fine, museum grade printing in my darkroom. 

So, you can be assured the print you’ll receive is the best that I can produce. 

I cannot, at this time, add any finishing services, such as matting and framing. 

All in-house printing is done using Canon’s pigment-based Lucia ink, along with a final layer of a clear finishing coat that enhances black density, prevents bronzing and ensures smooth, consistent color. This ink, along with museum-quality printing paper, ensure the highest quality for the art buyer. The paper I use is a close match to the fiber-based papers I used in the darkroom, except it’s a lot faster to produce a print. In the darkroom, processing was 15 minutes, followed by 90 minutes of washign using running water. 

Combined with proper mounting and framing, each print should remain vibrant and stunning for generations. 

 

Current Papers: 

5×7, 11×14 and 13×19 (plus sizes in between) are printed on 100% cotton rag Palo Duro Etching 315 from Red River Paper, Inc. in Dallas, Texas (Yes, I use a Texas company for my paper…. )

8×10 & 8.5×11 printed on 100% Rag Finestra Art’s Baryta Natural 300gsm Fine Art Inkjet Paper This paper most resembles the old Agfa fiber paper I used when printing in the darkroom years ago.  (I have this on hand only because Red River is out of stock currently.)
