I've had some of the best moments of my life in Asheville, but I live far away. I love walking by and seeing this print every day. It arrived very quickly after I ordered it, with a thank you from the artist. Thank you, Tom!

I'm really pleased to have sold this 24x36" print of my Athens cityscape - its graphic qualities look especially good in such a large size. This photograph and many more are available in my Etsy shop.
My print sets are a great way to order multiple prints at a reduced rate. Choose images that compliment each other really well, or simply select any combination of my photos that you love. This large trio of prints are now on their way to a home in Canada
I'd never printed this photograph so large before so I'm happy to be very pleased with the result. This shows a detail of a 20 x 30" print, with other sizes ranging from 5 x 7" up to 30 x 40".

About

"A treasure trove of witty images and beautiful landscapes, Tom Bland has an eye for the weird and wonderful..." Fiona Hayes, DayFour Magazine

I was born in the town of Hexham, Northumberland, in the north east of England, but I grew up in the surrounding countryside – the hills, fields and forests of Slaley. I have been taking photographs since I was 10 years old when I first used my Dad's Pentax P30 camera.

At 18 I specialised in photography on my Art Foundation course at Newcastle College as a stepping stone towards a Media Production degree in filmmaking and animation, where still photography became part of my workflow once again. After graduating I soon realised that photography was the medium which suited and satisfied me the most.

I now work on fine art and editorial photography that encompasses nature, landscape, abstracts, travel, food, and urban environments. I like to capture unique moments that give a sense of place, using only the natural light available. I'm also drawn to scenes that have strong graphic qualities – from rusting metal textures to natural sand patterns on a beach.

It's thanks to photography that I am currently based in New Jersey, USA. I met a talented photographer on Flickr by the name of Diana Pappas, and we are now married and dividing our time between the United States and the UK.

My work can be licensed for commercial or editorial purpose, and I am happy to receive queries regarding commissions or representation. All of my photography prints are open edition, made-to-order, and signed.

Thanks for visiting!
Tom

Here on Etsy I sell signed open-edition giclée and C-type prints. What is the difference between the two? Well, both options look fantastic and will last a lifetime if they're protected well and kept out of direct sunlight. Giclée prints are also known as inkjets and are produced with archival pigment inks that have an expected 47+ year life span. C-types are printed in the traditional manner and exposed on light sensitive Fujicolor Crystal Archive paper with an 80+ year life span.

Prints can be provided at many additional sizes to the sizes offered. If you have a custom request send me a quick message to give me an idea of what you are looking for and I can provide a quote.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
All payment is processed by Etsy Checkout or Paypal.

If there is a particular deadline you'd like to receive your order by you may need to upgrade your shipping. Please leave a note when you place your order and read my deliveries policy below for information about shipping services.
Shipping
I ship to any destination.

US shipping is free.

For international shipping*, unfortunately here on Etsy I have to charge a flat rate regardless of the print size you choose. This is only a provisional fee though, and upon shipping your order I'll refund any overcharges.

All standard shipping is with first class US Mail and includes tracking. Contact me to arrange shipping using a priority service. I can quickly send you a quote and the additional payment will be easy to arrange.

Orders should be processed and shipped within 7 business days in most cases, but please allow a maximum of 28 days for the delivery of your order. After this, if you think the delivery of your order is overdue, please let me know and the shipping delay will be investigated.

Your order will be carefully prepared and protected in rigid cardboard packaging made from recycled materials.

* INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMS:
Any customs fees, import taxes, tariffs, or duties that may be incurred at the time of delivery are at the discretion of your country's tax regulations. As a buyer you are responsible for those charges. For any additional information refer to your local customs agency. Returns will not be accepted due to such fees.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you wish to cancel your order, you can do so for any reason within 24 hours of placing the order. Navigate to the 'Purchases' page under 'My Account' in the top right of your window, and you'll see a big contact button for us to discuss your order. Beyond the 24 hour period I will have already incurred expenses in producing your artwork, so refunds are not available at that point.

My prints are very well protected and the packaging I use is designed to safeguard them from damage during transit. If your order is damaged on arrival though, please get in touch to discuss the problem and we'll figure out a solution.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please understand that the brightness and colours seen on computer monitors vary dramatically from one to another, and the print you receive may look very slightly different from what you see here at Etsy. All prints are closely examined though, and I won't send out a print if I am not happy with it myself.

HANDLING
Handle your print very carefully using two hands. When moving the print try to keep it flat, supporting it from beneath rather than holding the edges. However, do try to avoid repeated handling of your artwork.

MOUNTING, FRAMING & DISPLAY
To preserve your print’s life expectancy it should be mounted and framed using archival (acid-free) materials. A recommended method is to use photo corners to attach the print to archival board, and then affixing a window mount or ‘mat’ to that board. Avoid dry-mounting the print, and the artwork should not touch any glass.

Your photography print should be displayed on walls that avoid direct sunlight, or extremes in temperature and/or humidity. If your artwork is avoiding the sun’s ultraviolet rays, UV blocking glass is not essential.

CONTACT
If you have any questions that are not covered here don't hesitate to contact me.

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

The dimensions in my listings always refer to the size of the paper. This is to make it easier for buyers to know the minimum frame size needed. An 8x10 print for example will fit perfectly into an 8x10 frame with or without a white border, or you can choose to add a mat and place it in a larger frame.

With regards to the white borders, if you choose no border the image will be full bleed, meaning that an 8x10 print will result in an an 8x10 image (this usually means I have to crop my photograph to fit your chosen paper size). If you do select a white border the full printed image will be slightly smaller than the size you selected. The width of the borders range in size depending on the paper. Contact me to receive an artwork preview.
