Fine Art Photographs - Your Legacy Lives On

Fine Art Photography

Photographs are ubiquitous; they are everywhere. We shoot photos by the thousands with our phones. We delete them to free up space. Photography —in particular, digital photography — is, by its nature, ephemeral.

Fine art prints of photographs, by comparison, have stood the test of time as a more permanent visual medium. So, while digital photography may be easy and convenient, fine art photographs are designed to last. They are printed with high-quality, long-lasting inks, coated to insure vibrant color and longevity, and then framed to keep the elements at bay.

Today, the images I make will survive for one hundred years or longer. They will outlive the subject. They will outlive me. They will be treasured, and handed down for many generations. Eventually, they will become the only remaining visual documents of the subject's life.

The responsibility of shooting for history, especially family history, is something I take very seriously. I know that the few hours that we spend together will result in an image that will become a bridge over time between ancestors and descendants.
