Art Buying Guide

Art Buying Guide

My photography is available for purchase and license from a range of professionally produced products listed below. From signed limited edition fine art prints and wall art, to box sets of greetings cards and striking wall art canvases, alongside aluminium and acrylic show pieces - my work can make a striking addition to any home or office.  

I have spent years tailoring my photography to high-end printed products to suit all budgets, while never sacrificing quality. Often photographers spend thousands of pounds on equipment, travel across the world at great expense, and spend hours in the sweltering tropical heat or blistering cold to capture their most treasured images. It therefore doesn't seem right for the end result to be produced on a budget, or worse still... never printed at all!

My quest has always been to find the highest affordable quality printing materials and techniques that best suit and compliment my photographic style, to display the end result of 20 years of photography.

I use some of the best fine art papers available on the market, as does my third party lab for my wall art collection. I am delighted to say they also source papers and wood materials from sustainable sources.

My work is broadly split into a 'fine art print collection', which I print personally in my home print studio, and a 'wall art collection', which is produced for me by one of the UK's leading professional photo labs, with both limited edition and open edition work available. For more detailed information on each, please see below.


The Wall Art Collection

High-end, professionally-produced art ready to hang and display on your walls, bringing the gallery to you!

Wall Art: Canvas

Classic, textured and eye-catching - the traditional choice for my wall art

I offer two forms of canvas wrap depending on whether the print collection is limited edition or open edition:

  1. Limited Edition prints are offered as a high quality framed photographic canvas, stretched and mounted in an inset wooden black frame. This really is the best of both! These are a high-end photographic products deliberately chosen to compliment my limited edition series.
  2. Open Edition prints are offered as a more affordable inkjet canvas, stretched on wooden bars but not framed.

Technical Details

The Open Edition Canvas Wrap is a more budget-friendly option for my wall art. It is created using a state of the art large format inkjet printer, with my image printed directly onto artist canvas and then wrapped around stretcher bars. As this is printed on textured canvas, it will not generate the optical clarity and sharpness found with my fine art prints or acrylic and aluminium wall art. It will however still look fabulous on your home or office wall! 

Production Times

These products are carefully and professionally printed (partly by hand) and thoroughly inspected for optimum quality. Therefore they are never rushed! My lab generally produces my wall art prints in 7 working days, allowing time for me to send the full resolution image to the lab, for signing and numbering (if limited edition) and for their processing and delivery (via UK courier). It is advisable to allocate 10-14 working days for these wall art products.

Limited Edition Wall Art: Each image is available as a limited edition of 10 per product, hand numbered and signed by Andy on a metal plaque fused to the back of each print.


Wall Art: Aluminium

A modern, vibrant, eye-catching option for my wall art

Aluminium Prints are a more contemporary display product that I have carefully chosen to suit my photography. They offer vibrant and punchy images - an ideal match for my artistic style. Any image from my carefully curated collections would compliment this option, making a real statement piece for any home or office.

They offer a more affordable and lightweight alternative to the high-end acrylic wall art prints which I also offer. They still have a high-gloss, durable and waterproof finish, making a truly striking high-definition wall display.

The aluminium prints are professionally produced by my partner, UK Photo Lab, who buy from sustainable wood and paper sources. These products are made to order, by hand, by their master craftsmen and women in the UK.

Technical Details

Aluminium prints are expertly made through a sublimation process. My images are infused directly from sublimation paper onto specially coated sheets of ChromaLuxe aluminium photo panels, with exceptional quality and resolution. Each panel is 1mm thick with rounded corners and is supplied ready to hang. The hanger holds the print 15mm from the wall, creating a 'float' effect.

Production Times

These products are carefully and professionally printed (partly by hand) and thoroughly inspected for optimum quality. Therefore they are never rushed! My lab generally produces my wall art prints in 10 working days, so allowing time for me to send the full resolution image to the lab, sign and number (if limited edition), their processing and then delivery (via UK courier) it is advisable to allocate 14 working days for my wall art products. 


Wall Art:  Quartz Acrylic

Modern, vibrant and eye-catching - the ultimate choice for my wall art

The Quartz Acrylic is a stunning wall art product highly suited to my high contrast, punchy, vibrant photographic style. 

Prints are professionally printed on photographic paper and then enclosed between two sheets of crystal clear acrylic. This crystal effect makes the photograph an incredibly eye-catching feature of any wall. As the ambient light reflects through the perspex, it gives an almost 'glowing' effect, bringing the gallery to your own wall! 

Technical Details

The Quartz Acrylic is a single Fuji DPII photographic print, enclosed between two clear sheets of crystal grade acrylic (2mm front and 3mm back), giving an overall thickness of 5mm. Produced ready to hang with a unique hanging bar securely mounted on the print back, the print is seemingly lifted away from the wall, creating a floating illusion.

Production Times

These products are carefully and professionally printed (partly by hand) and thoroughly inspected for optimum quality, as such they are not rushed! My lab generally produces my wall prints in 14 working days, so allowing time for me to send the full resolution image to the lab, sign and number (if limited edition), their processing and then delivery (via UK courier) it is advisable to allocate 18 working days for these wall art products. 


The Fine Art Print Collection 

Produced by my own hand, custom made to order, I offer fine art print runs of select images in my collections.

The Open Edition Collection

Greetings Cards Collection

A carefully curated selection from my current run of limited edition fine art prints - hand made, custom mounted, signed and numbered by myself. Each of these come with a certificate of authenticity attached to the mount back. 

The price of these prints reflects the availability, and hence lower prices are available earlier in the release. Once a size or edition has sold out then it will never be reprinted.

These are prints that are not in my limited edition collection, and are available as an unlimited print run. For this reason they are priced much lower than the limited edition collection, but this does not affect their print quality.

An affordable print option for you to frame yourself.

Select boxes of blank greetings cards from my current collections. 

These postcard-sized cards are A6 paper size when folded, with blank inside for your own message and each with envelopes included.
