About The Prints

I founded Mountain Images back in 1983, and I am pleased and proud of the long-standing reputation that I have achieved for producing specialist and exclusive high quality mountain prints. I continue, today, to exercise the same dedication to perfecting excellence in my prints as I do in creating the outstanding image in the field. My prints are produced individually for each and every customer, and are not available from any other website nor retail outlet.

My prints are painstakingly crafted and printed from only my very best images; the vast majority were captured to strictly observed standards on high end professional cameras, in particular the Fuji GX617 panoramic camera, one of several Canon EOS full frame digital cameras or, more recently, the Nikon D810 digital camera.

Quality is maintained by respecting the relationship between original image size and final print size; minimising the level of magnification between the two ensures that the print that I produce for my customers contains infinite subject detail.

I carry out only the minimal amount of corrective work to the original digital negatives obtained in the field; they are not colour enhanced, over-saturated, over-sharpened nor over-worked. With their wide tonal range and excellent colour saturation, my prints are a true and accurate representation of the view I saw on the day I captured the image.

I print my images on the very latest Epson printers using Ultrachrome HDR pigment inks. These printers take inkjet (giclee) technology to an entirely new level with higher colour accuracy, greater subtlety and smoother gradations. Grass and foliage is much more vivid and natural whilst orange tones in sunrises and sunsets are more dazzling.

I have also given careful consideration to the choice of print media; manufacturers may vary from time to time, but these will have a silky smooth surface structure designed to ensure they maintain the natural characteristics of a smooth high-white art paper whilst maintaining the necessary natural aesthetics demanded by artists and photographers. The surfaces have a special matte coating, designed for high quality fine art and photographic reproduction and print applications.

About The Frames

My images are intended for display professionally mounted and framed. They are available supplied framed in any one of a selection of mouldings which I believe work well with my images. These frames are of simple design and made externally, to order, by one of the UK's best-known framers. They are produced using only the very best quality materials to an exceptionally high standard by 'Fine Art Trade Guild' craftsmen.

In the framing process, a print is first dry mounted before being placed behind a soft white bevelled mount. This procedure has many benefits; the print surface will remain perfectly flat, it determines and maintains the print's precise position within the frame, it allows the print to 'breathe' when subjected to variations in temperature and humidity, and finally it ensures that the printed surface does not come into contact with the glazing. To reduce the overall frame weight yet maintain strength, all my frames are fitted with Art Screen Clear acrylic glazing to ensure that they are strong, safe and lightweight.

All completed framed prints are shipped in customised packaging by carrier to you, the customer, directly from their factory.

I reserve the right to change the specification of my mouldings from time to time and from batch to batch. Although the mouldings will change, I shall ensure continuity in the general appearance of my product range. I do guarantee that any customer who orders several frames in a single order will be supplied with frames made from the same batch of moulding. However, I cannot guarantee that any customer who places a return order for frames some time later will receive mouldings from the same batch.
