Action photography an ideal setting

I enjoys taking action photographs, they bring different challenges to landscapes, everything is now in the moment.  But, this doesn’t mean that composition has to be sacrificed for action, for me this remains at the heart of the photograph.

I started my early days of photography taking pictures at car rallies and motorcycle speedway.  Both brought challenges of taking high speed photos in low light, and required pushing the black and white film beyond it’s design.

Giclée prints of coastal photographs

Action photography prints, are provide on either Hahnemühle fine art paper of canvas.  Printing is on a Canon IPF8300 large format printer with 12 pigment inks giving a lightfastness of over 100 years.  In general terms this means that in normal room conditions a print will not fade during it’s normal life.

Action photography prints on canvas are additionally protected by Hahnemühle Lacquer, this is a totally clear but protective coating that provides some UV protection for the print and some mechanical protection allowing the surface to be wiped clean.

All prints are signed by David with a title and with an edition number if appropriate to the print.

Delivery of your artwork

Fine art prints on either paper or canvas will be shipped in a cardboard tube, we recommend that pictures are unwrapped by a framer as it is possible to damage the surface especially with paper prints as the paper will be quite spring like after being in the tube.

Shipping of paintings within the UK is free.  Shipping to other parts of the world will be charged at cost.

Framing Service

Within the UK we can also offer prints framed in a range of mouldings and are happy to advise the cost of this service, similarly we can provide canvas prints stretched on high quality stretcher bars.  We do not offer this as standard on the website as their is always such a wide range of options.  Framed prints can be shipped  within mainland UK.
