There was a slight detail I missed for what I was looking for but other than it's beautiful. I'm keeping it. Thank you!

I fell in love with this photo, but wanted something that looked more like a painting. Jorge jumped through hoops to get that done for me, and the outcome was just beautiful.

Photographic prints shop (matted or not) in different sizes and finishes
"When we decorate with photo prints we enhance the quality of our daily life in a way language alone can't. Only in photography do science and art come together to turn light into something magical...". and that's how I started a seminar I teach on Photographing for Decor.
I take photographs because I have to. It's a need to capture the magic around us. I have been taking photographs since I was 11. My cameras have changed a great deal, but the goal remains the same, to capture that magical moment in a way only a photograph can.
"It all starts with light captured at the blink of an eye or lavishly longer. Photography (writing with light) is part art, part science, and all magic. Like a time machine, photographs can be frozen memories that bring us back in time, launch our imagination or stir powerful emotions... Add purposeful artistic interpretation in the lab and the photographs can become fine art." but enough about that.
This is where ♡you♡ come in, to find which image pleases and challenges *your* heart and senses, creating that special feeling for yourself or for a gift . Each of my prints is professionally processed and handmade so we can work together and tweak it. Just contact me or request a custom job or to make changes to existing ones.
All my work is guaranteed original and fade-proof, printed using the highest quality materials at the most reasonable cost possible. I normally print using Premium luster paper but I also have available quality German art papers made with 100% rag or cotton.
Most of my images are available also in very large sizes, 20x30, 40x60 and larger. Sadly at Etsy is hard to appreciate the nuances of the images due to the small size of the etsy windows.

✮DECEMBER 2013 UPDATE✮ - I now process all my prints in regular sizes up to 13x19 and all panoramic sizes up to 13x40 in my brand new digital studio using only museum-quality archival pigment inks in 9-11 hues .Select fine art papers in single sheets or rolls including art gallery handmade papers or canvases. Using wider digital color spaces that reflect the nuance of each hue, the results are better than standard run of the mill processing.
In addition to quality control end-to-end from shutter-click to laying down each color pixel, I can also insure the final product is exactly what I intended it to be - and because it is hand-made one print at a time I can work with you to make it intimately yours. For larger sizes than above, or special media like metal or wood I still use selected professional labs. Outside prints will take longer because I inspect all work before shipping.
You can purchase the prints alone and mat or frame them yourself, or have me mat them for you. Matting work is done using white gloves and acid-free materials that avoid damaging the images, and are always shipped in clear protective envelopes inside of crush-proof packaging. Prints are typically signed on the back, and mailed in crush-resistant tubes. Mated using 4 ply acid-free mats to help make it affordable. You can request 8+ ply mats at optional cost and delay.

Don't be put off by the tux, it's a photo of me taken by a fellow photographer at a precious and special moment in my life, a most fantastic memory. "Life is way too precious to take ourselves too seriously".
Me on the field
"We Always Get The Shot" is our motto and getting it is both a challenge and a reward. Nothing's more satisfying. (this is me in the middle of a shoot in the Caribbean and more what I look like daily)
Jen & Jess
My daughters Jen & Jess are also my real life assistants, models, curators and overall my connection with the art world.
My most avid fan and companion. He seems to be saying here "Are You OK? What do you have in there?"
Images up to 13x19 and 13x40 (panoramic) are printed in my own lab studio using museum quality fade-proof inks and art papers. Larger or special media prints (canvas, aluminum, wood) are printed using a professional external lab. Unless specially stated I check all work myself.
Matted prints and small not matted prints are shipped in flat protected materials. Larger prints are shipped in protected tubes. All shipping in the US should reach you within 3 days of shipping with tracking.

Signed or not? Matted? Framed? Canvas? Metallic? Glossy? Matte?
My images are printed in professional acid-free photo paper, canvas or wood... finished in glossy, matte, metallic or special textures. Lustre is the most popular finish but I can print in ANY fine art papers and finish. Some photos look good in all of them, some are best in only one or two. I can help you.
PAPER: I use professional photo paper often in combination with archival inks to produce prints that with care should last for years (100+). I use the term "just prints" to imply no matting or framing. I typically sign the back and affix a control sticker with my contact info as guarantee that is made by me. The common finish choices are matte (little to no shine), lustre ( similar to matte) glossy (shiny) and optionally metallic (special inks & paper have a metal-like sheen). We can also do a custom order on special non-paper materials (see below)
MATTED PRINTS: For matted prints, I typically sign the mat in the front in pencil as it is traditionally done and I will include a dedication if you request it. I always sign prints on the back and / or affix our brand sticker.
Types of matting varies and it includes single, double (or inset) in white, black and assorted colors. All are acid free mats to protect the image. For quality look I do NOT use 2-3 ply mats and to keep prices reasonable I often use 4 ply mats, but I can do custom orders with 8 ply and others. I will ship your print using the mat as pictured but occasionally I will substitute better or equivalent matting. If you have a specific choice please select it or message me at time of purchase.
METAL (REAL ALUMINUM): I can print in REAL METAL (different from metallic "finish") but only as a custom job at Etsy (or off the shelf at my photo site).
WOOD: Prints mounted on wood require longer time to produce and are heavier, resulting on more expensive shipping (weight typically ranges between 12-24 pounds). Prints mounted on wood are professionally coated with special glossy finish and laser finished for smooth edges. They will be signed on the back and/or a sticker affixed.
CANVAS: Canvases are made using special materials (cotton, poly/bend, etc) coated (or not) with special substrates. - they typically take longer than paper to produce but less time and weight than wooden & metal prints. I have some of the best prices on canvas because I constantly check for new labs and suppliers. The canvas world is constantly changing and new materials come on line all the time. The price varies accordingly. Most prints look great some look fantastic but some don't. I can help you decide. I make canvas prints from very small (4 in by 4 inches) to 60x40 and larger.
NUMBERED SERIES: Typically I won't number the prints unless I'm running a specific serialized numbered series. When that happens I typically retire the print afterwards. These will cost more.
HOT DEALS: Every once in a while I find a special frame or printing material that will make a given print "pop". Often quantities are limited so I put those items for sale marked as "Hot Deals". When they are gone, I can not guarantee I'll carry them again. Check the shop often and you may find one of those deals yourself. Substitution of image is not always possible but ask if you are interested.

✮ IMPORTANT PLEASE READ✮
To save you money I combine items whenever possible and pass the savings to you. Please note that shipping price "With Another Item" applies to SIMILAR ITEMS ONLY - In other words UNmatted UNFramed PRINTS are similar items and therefore will ship in the same tube or container. Similarly, matted and framed items are similar items that can be combined in the same box. However, If you combine unlike items, like UNmatted prints with matted prints, canvas with paper, additional shipping will be required. I will contact you for the difference.
Photography gifts and merchandise such as mousepads, luggage tags, aprons, clocks, plates, tiles, etc are all made to order and will take longer to ship. I don't have any listed at Etsy, but check out what's possible here:
All of these items are available at the photo site: www.nariophotos.com
And here at Etsy I can create a special listing just for you.
