About Silver Photography
Gelatin silver prints are the most common media for making black and white prints from negatives. The photo papers are coated with a layer of gelatin which contains light sensitive silver salts. Silver prints were developed in the 1870's and by 1895 had generally replaced albumen prints because they were more stable, did not turn yellow and were easier to reproduce. Gelatin silver prints remain the standard black and white print type.
About Platinum Photography
Because I feel that the platinum emulsion offers greater subtleties than any other photographic process, I have been handcrafting platinum prints for over 20 years. Six years ago, I began over-coating the black and white platinum print with a gum dichromate emulsion mixed with watercolor. Because the platinum emulsion is so slow that the prints must be contact printed under a high intensity light source, making platinum/gum prints in sizes up to 30”x40” is an advanced technical feat. Therefore, one of the difficulties in producing large prints is the large negative that must be produced. The platinum emulsion is hand-coated on a fine, 100% rag paper and then contact printed. After the print has dried the gum dichromate emulsion, with watercolor added, is coated on top of it. The large negative is re-registered and the print re-exposed one final time, thus allowing the colored emulsion to become an integral part of the finished platinum print. I hope that you can sample, in person, the rich luminosity of this unique platinum/gum photography.

About Cibachrome Photography
For years I struggled with my love for modern art and the camera's opposing penitence for capturing imagery with detailed realism. Matisse's collage cutouts gave me an idea. I began cutting out shapes and composing them into overlapping collages. Then I cut each shape into a mask that I could affix to the front of a view camera film holder. This would allow me to photograph the imagery within a particular shape. Thus, I could affix a new mask and photograph a different shape on top of the first, etc. The completed image is a collage with wonderful things happening where the images overlap, and with the remarkable detail that only a large format camera can capture. The final, single printed transparency is then printed on the magnificent photographic paper, Ilfochrome. I call this process abstract realism.
About Digital Photography
Both straight and manipulated images printed with archival pigment from digital files. PIEZO PRINTS Using seven separate shades of black, Piezo prints deliver a level of photo-realistic black and white image quality often not associated with digital printing. We use the latest in piezo printing technology and non-fugitive archival pigments to produce our prints of superior clarity, nuance, and contrast,
About Vintage Photography
Vintage Prints by photographers of world renown. Within the photography market, there is a premium attached to vintage prints. The definition of vintage is the photographer should have shot and printed from that negative within one year. The further from the negative date, the window of ‘vintage’ can often be expanded to cover five or even ten years. The price for a vintage photography can be about four to six times as much as the price for a modern or posthumous print.
