Print Sales

All images are available as C-type hand-printed in the dark room photographic prints in limited editions. The overall edition size of each image is 150.

Limited edition prints are numbered and signed by the artist on the back of the print as is the tradition in photography. The limited editions come in conventional photographic sheet paper sizes. They are accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.

Dry mounting, Matting (mounts) and Framing

Conventionally all our frame work is dry mounted onto aluminium. This ensures a very flat image surface and prevents handling damage.

The prints are matted (window mounted) using a 100% cotton museum board especially manufactured to be compatible with C-type photographic paper.

The work is framed and glazed in box frames made in the UK by Ware Frames. The black ones are made from oak, the white ones are made from Beech.

The signature and edition on the back of the artwork is clearly visible on the back of the framed piece. The front matt (window mount) can be signed and editioned in pencil on request.

Artwork Description

We make your artworks to order in our Cambridge Studio.

Although we always send out your order as quickly as possible the artwork might take two weeks to make. If you require it urgently for a gift or interior design project get in touch before placing your order and we will advise on availability and options.

Please note when ordering artwork for shipping to Australia it may be subject to import duty which is your responsibility.


Conventionally all our framed work is dry-mounted onto aluminium. This ensures a very flat image surface in the short and the long term. The prints are matted (window mounted) using a museum quality 100% cotton rag board especially manufactured to be compatible with the C-type archival Kodak photographic paper Richard uses. He makes the prints in his own dark room. The print sizes are taken from traditional photographic paper sizes. Traditionally with photographic prints they are signed and numbered on the back, they can be signed on the front of the mount by request.
