Prints and things...

Over the last month or so, I've been busy getting my web store in shape. Everyone needs something nice to look at, right? So I've chosen some prints from my photo collection ready to share with others.

A lot of the prints in my web store have been taken during my travels around the world, but some are much closer to home.

This photo was taken in Collingwood at the top of the South Island of New Zealand.

This one was taken on the way to Holkham, Norfolk, England - much closer to home.

You can see all the prints available in the web store here:-

Today I went and picked up the prints I have had framed. It's always quite exciting seeing your prints professionally mounted and framed and looking their very best. I've also had some mounted without frames, so people can choose their own frame. I prefer getting frames made to order, but there are some good places to buy ready made frames these days.

I go to Norwich Frame Workshop and speak to Lee whenever I want my photos mounted or framed. He does a fantastic job at making my work look, well, fantastic! I usually go for a simple 3/4 inch black, solid wood frame and at the moment I'm mounting on a glacial white card mount (you can find Norwich Frame Workshop at 1 St Benedicts Street, Norwich).

Now all that is left to do is sell them. I'm doing my first craft stall in a few weeks, and have been busy preparing to make my things look nice. The only thing I have left to get is the final bits of packaging. It will be good to get some feedback on things. I will be looking for further places to sell my work in the New Year, so any suggestions are really welcome.

Finally, I'm having a bit of a clear out of past exhibition stuff, which has led to a couple of very limited prints becoming available. And by very limited, I mean there is only one of each available!!! Both are 8"x12" prints and come in 12"x16" mounts, and are priced at a bargain £40. Here they are, so if you know any Patrick Wolf or Dan Hawkins fans looking for a present, then send them my way....

Dan Hawkins - this print appeared in Guitarist Magazine
