My printing process

My prints are printed on high-quality papers with a state-of-the-art Epson Pro 4900 printer using archival Ultrachrome HD pigment ink. This printer can accommodate paper up to 16-inches wide. I use the highest quality print papers, chosen for their exceptional image qualities and their archival properties. The papers I currently use are Epson Ultra Premium Photo Paper Luster, and two extraordinary papers from Canson: Platine Fibre Rag and Rag Photographique (matte).

Framed prints are usually covered with shiny glass or acrylic glazing. Unfortunately, these produce annoying reflections that interfere with truly “seeing” the photograph. I have found a polymer spray that eliminates the need for glazing. It renders the print water and scuff resistant, and protects it from UV light and atmospheric contaminants, virtually doubling the life of my archival prints made on an Epson SureColor P800. I can treat any of my prints for a nominal fee; call me at 505-662-4370.
