Prints & Books

Corporate Art

I have worked with many businesses to put together customised, cost effective packages to put art on their walls. After appraising the available spaces we decide on the number and size of prints needed. Next we can supply a portfolio of suitable images to select from. I then personally make each print, either on beautiful art papers framed behind glass or archival canvas on stretcher frames. A fully inclusive quote will be given before any commitment is needed.

Local businesses I have supplied artwork for include PGG Wrightson Kimihia, RaboBank Ashburton, Irrigo, ATS, Bayley's Ashburton and Brophy Knight.

"Perspectives Mid Canterbury" Books

Mid Canterbury is a mix of vibrant farmland on the plains and beautiful wilderness in the inland mountains. In 2006 I published Perspectives Mid Canterbury, this has now sold out.

Another Perspective Mid Canterbury is an all new collection of images, published in the same format, a 64 page hard cover A5 sized book with very nice reproduction.

Framed prints: 16 by 20 on left, 24 by 32 on right

These books capture the diversity of the district and are a perfect size to mail. Locals buy them to show others where we live; people passing through buy it as a reminder of their visit.

The books are also a great corporate gift for companies with overseas clients. No other books specifically focus on Mid Canterbury. Significant discounts are available for quantity purchases.

Perspectives books are stocked in Mid Canterbury book stores and iSites, Whitcoulls and Paper Plus. RRP is $24. You can also order direct from me, I can send it anywhere in the world.

"Mountains and Plains" Calendar

Each year I print a small run of calendars using my photography of the beautiful Mid Canterbury area I live and work in.

It is A4 sized, printed on good quality paper with plenty of space on each day for notes to organise your year. The 2018 calendars will be available from October.

Individual Prints

I enjoy making real prints, but have limited time currently for this. The superb materials used (nice cotton rag papers with archival pigment inks) create wonderful prints. If you appreciate good photography printed beautifully, and are happy to invest several hundred dollars upwards, talk to me.
