Field Notes Print Info


This robust-looking bull elk was photographed one crisp fall morning in Yellowstone National Park. I had plans to get a bit deeper into the park, but when I saw this guy and his harem running around on the side of the mountain, I knew it was worth a stop!

It started off with just a few nice captures of the bull on the mountain, but nothing very impressive. I was about to move on when I noticed he’d become distracted by a female (happens with all species of males). He went down to encourage her to stay with the group, and then started back up right along the ridge you see here in the photo. At first she followed along nicely, but cow elk are easily distracted, so it wasn’t long before she began to wander off course.

Well, he couldn’t have that, so he turned around on about the best spot he could have picked and gave a tremendous bugle to get her attention again. Not only was her course corrected, I was lucky enough to capture the moment with my camera.

About Our Prints....

We currently sell both individual prints and completely framed and ready-to-hang prints. Our framed prints are professionally matted, mounted and framed.

Here's a sample of our basic mat and frame:

Framed prints purchased though us are generally a better deal than taking a loose print to your local frame shop since we have a pretty significant discount that we pass along to you. When you receive your print in the mail, it's ready to hang and even comes with the hardware for doing so.

Please note that if you'd like another type of print (canvas for example) or another frame style, we can certainly accommodate you, just use the contact us page and we'll customize the artwork to make it perfect for your home.


Warranty

Our framed prints are guaranteed for as long as you own them against wear, fading, or deterioration. Loose prints are also guaranteed for as long as you own them provided you have them framed under glass using archival materials. We want you to LOVE your prints, so we offer a refund as long as the print or framed print is returned in like new condition within 30 days.


Signature

All prints are signed in one of the lower corners (usually the right hand corner).


Delivery

Delivery time varies and depends on a number of factors, but we always strive to get your prints delivered to you as quickly as possible. I personally inspect each and every piece before it leaves our building. If I'm out of town taking more photos, it can cause a delay, but a good rule of thumb is that a loose print will ship within 2 weeks and a framed print within 3 weeks. That time is significantly shorter if I'm in town at the time the order is placed. If you need a print done by a certain date, you can contact me and I'll be happy to give you an estimated delivery date.


Discounts

We are now offering quantity discounts if you are interested in two or more pieces. Simply contact me with the sizes and names of the images you are interested in and I will be happy to get you a quote. The more pieces you order, the better the discount.

Thanks for your interest!
