Spring Time Iris
This cool little Iris was photographed right in my backyard.
Hmm, that’s not very exciting, let me see if I can liven it up a bit for ya!
So, I see this little Iris off in the distance and I knew despite the danger it could make for a sweet photo. I gather my gear and with my heart pounding in my chest I begin the relentless 10 foot hike over to its location. It was a tough trek – the cement and freshly cut grass under my feet a constant reminder that any little mistake could be my last.
I setup carefully, my knees on the cold (OK lukewarm), hard (OK, kind of soft) ground, but I had to get this shot no matter what it took! The tripod was a bit lower than I like, so I had to bend a little more then normal to see through the viewfinder, but I was willing to endure any amount of pain to get this photo!
The composition was tricky – I had to make sure I didn’t get any aluminium siding in the background – I shifted again – OUCH – a small stick was on the ground and I just put my knee on it! Oh, will the pain ever cease? No matter, I was in postion and ready to shoot. I took photo after photo, so immersed in my work I didn’t notice the relentless sun or 72 degree weather as it was bearing down on me.
Finally, I had the photo! Success at last!
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.
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.
All prints are signed in one of the lower corners (usually the right hand corner).
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.
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!
