You very own, portrait gallery. History of your lifetime in images. Beyond photography.
We truly believe and practice the approach where the vivid imagery of your precious moment needs to be proudly displayed on a wall that you can adore day after day instead of being buried as a file on your computer or a post on your Facebook page. We predominantly focus on stretched canvas and acrylic glass mounts which will fill your house with magic and beauty of love, tenderness and grace.
We also can prepare albums or individual gift prints available in various sizes and options. Everything we do is top quality, museum grade archival prints with the life expectancy in hundreds of years depending on the actual product. We provide lifetime storage of digital negatives so you can recover your picture where you are a phone call away from recovering what is important — the precious moment that will never repeat, something truly priceless since no riches of the world can return a moment gone forever.
With every image you purchase we will supply a digital file in high resolution suitable for social media and email.
We can organise albums with the prices ranging anything from $1500 to $5000 per album depending on the style, number of images and the actual technology. As you attend the studio you will be able to look through some samples and decide the best option for you.
Individual images can be purchased as either mounted inside a matboard or as a gift print (no mat).
20×25 matboards are $200 each
27×35 matboards are $300 each
All mounts are printed using Canon Chromalife technology which is warranted by Canon to last 300 years.
We offer lifetime replacement guarantee on all the prints (excluding physical damage caused by external factors ).

My apologies in advance for dumping a lot of technical information onto you. Even if this may look like a lot, in reality it is the bare minimum information I believe is important to enable you to decide what works for you. If you want trouble free, customised service and guaranteed quality – please consider ordering prints from us.
And now to the questions you might have:
Yes, we will provide screen optimised files in 8K and 2K resolutions optimised for screen viewing with every wall art you purchase. Similarly to other digital files, these will be supplied without the Print Release.
There is a caution about screens — computer, laptop or mobile phone screens are backlit devices and their calibration varies between “good enough” to “completely off”. What it means is that the printed image should be considered as a true representation of your image and it will indeed look very closely to a calibrated professional monitor such as one use for all the image editing and colour grading. Depending on the time of the day and your colour/lightning conditions your wall print may look different since the light it reflects will be directly dependent on the light that falls upon it.
Another important consideration is that screens are backlit devices where colours are created by mixing Red, Green and Blue. Simplified, the pints are created with the Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black ink which absorb some wavelengths and the rest is reflected back into your eye as the colour information. Matching these two vastly different methods of conveying the image into our eyes is impossible.
And lastly, the screen calibration. Most of the monitors consumers use are not calibrated and even different browsers will display the same image very differently. Try opening the same image in Firefox, Windows Photo Viewer and something else the results will be strikingly different. The situation with mobile phones is not better. Most of Android devices from China are not calibrated and do not manage colours at all. Samsung Galaxy phones by default are configured with an “Adaptive Display” mode which completely misrepresents colours and needs changing to “Basic” which is very close to the sRGB standard. Other devices such as Sony and HTC come with sRGB by default. iPhone prior to version 7 were using sRGB and now Apple uses another gamut called DCI-P3 Wide Color Gamut.
As you can guess, there are many aspects of correct colour representation and variances are to be expected. What we can guarantee with our images is that they will be developed with a full appreciation of complexities involved in managing the colours and the prints will be the closest representation of real colours that existed at the time the image was captured.
Yes, we appreciate you might not be in a position to order printed material right now and for those situations we will provide uncompressed, lab ready files as 16-bit TIFF or PSD files. Each file will be listed on a Print Release.
The cost is $1,500.00 for every file you request.
