Welcome to Brittography!

I am passionate about film photography and printing the old fashioned way, and I hope you find something to fall in love with among the items offered in my shop. All images are my own work. Film photos are printed at a professional lab (with most matting custom cut by me), and original cyanotype and van dyke prints are my own handiwork from start to finish. Each one of these is a unique piece, so be sure to study the product photos carefully. The print pictured is exactly the one you will receive.

My prints are designed to be long-lasting and, with a little care, will maintain their color for a long time. Sunlight will fade any print over time, so the most important thing you can do to protect your print is to display it out of the sun. Keep it away from moisture as well, and it will stay fresh for you for many years to come.

I sincerely hope you enjoy your purchase.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to convo me.

Additional policies and FAQs

Disclaimer: My original numbered prints (cyanotypes, van dyke prints) are made using real photographic chemicals. Although the amount of chemicals remaining on the finished prints is minimal, they are not recommended for display within the reach of small children. By purchasing one of these prints, you agree to assume all responsibility and liability for the proper handling, display, and storage of the prints.
