    5 out of 5 stars

    This was a gift for my wife. Orcas are her favorite thing in the world, she cried upon opening. The piece is high quality, colors came out well. This was the 20”by 60” Canvas option. This picture doesn’t do justice but gives an idea of the finished product. We love it The artist Paul was great. He communicated through out the printing and shipping process. He even checked that it was delivered. He proceeded the extra information about the day of the photo which added so much for us. I highly recommend Paul both for his art and easy of communication. 10/10 recommend! Go check out his IG of the same name, we both follow and enjoy his art there as well.

About PaulDolkphotography

On Etsy since 2015

Sharing my wild life outing experiences with the world.

"Paul Dolk’s work is his stretch. He reaches out with a mindful heart and captures the breadth and width of a single moment. And with each extension of his lens, the air is stilled, illuminating the graceful power of a whale or the relentless intent of an eagle. That these moments depict the relationship between himself, wildlife and the sea is clear and inseparable. As when the sea drapes over the nose of a surfacing orca, each one describes the other.

“Some photographers take reality... and impose the domination of their own thought and spirit. Others come before reality more tenderly and a photograph to them is an instrument of love and revelation” -Ansel Adams-

Paul Dolk’s photographs embody his spirit of devotion towards the natural world of Newfoundland, the thrill of the photographer’s process and a heart that is oceans wide and deep. Framing the fluid nature of a whale’s descension or extension into the sky, the images are stretched beyond the normal and proper limits of our expectations"

My photos are printed on a blend artists canvas that features a water-resistant matte finish and then stretched onto a 1,25” wooden frame ready to hang on your wall! It can be cleaned with a damp cloth. The digital files are printed with large format printers using the latest print heads. The pigmented inks are water based and they are UV resistant.

Through the process of dye sublimation, images are infused directly into the specially coated sheet of metal. The process turns every image into a vibrant work of art. The high definition, vibrant colors coupled with superior fade, moisture, stain, & scratch resistant properties make this photo panel an excellent choice for fine art photography. The extremely durable scratch resistant surface is waterproof and can be cleaned easily with a damp cloth. You can even hang your art piece outdoors! Choose between a glossy or matte finish. Your print will be hung with a floating hanger. The print floats off of the wall approximately ½”. The metal panel will last a lifetime.
