Nadine was very helpful in looking into alternative shipping methods so that my friend visiting from France could receive it sooner. In the end, we managed to ship it off and my friend loves her print! Thank you, Nadine!

About

Fine art nature mandalas

Walter Helena Photography is Nadine, a girl from the West Coast.

I produce moody fine art photographs that appear hand painted. Luxurious paper, texture beneath the ink, intensely saturated colours.

“Like Richter without the paint. But it still feels like paint.” [client: Nick]

"I love how much they look like paintings. It’s a different side of photography that is very escapist and well … dreamy.” [Kate from Art Hound]

My images aim to capture the mystery of natural spaces. I am outdoors a lot -- with my dogs, with my son, with myself -- looking for magic.

I take immense pride in the reproduction of my images. Each individual print is available in a variety of sizes from 5 x 7 inches to 40 x 60 inches. I also create custom production runs for specific clients. Please inquire for details.

"When a photograph can make me lose myself, that’s when I know it serves a purpose. The blur that partially hides what is and forces you to see the familiar differently." [client: Jacques]

“Even more beautiful in real life.” [client: Kylie]

“The landscapes are subdued, soft, kinetic. The florals are textured, still, vibrant. The urban images are strong, honest, confident. All are ephemeral - and it is this quality that gives each photo a kind of melancholic grace.” [client: Sarah]

Clients include Hilton, Crate & Barrel, Williams Sonoma.

I am always open to custom requests for sizes, sets, and printing and paper options:

Thank you for peeking!

PS: Many people ask from where my shop name comes. My parent's names is the simple answer. The fact that the names remained unused prior to my photography shop is the mystery.

I take great pride in the quality, reproduction, and careful shipping of my prints.

✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽

Customers’ descriptions of WHP images: “MYSTERIOUS, SOFT, PAINTERLY, VIBRANT, MAGICAL, MOODY, SUBDUED, MELANCHOLIC, TEXTURED, HONEST, GRACEFUL.”

✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽

Printing for limited edition prints:
All limited edition prints are professionally printed on coarse felt Hahnemuhle paper (artist weight, 210 g/m; soft white).

Giclee prints:
All other prints are professionally Giclee printed by a third party using an Epson Stylus Pro 11880 K3. You can choose from four products: Textured Fine Art paper, Ultrasmooth Fine Art paper, Somerset Velvet paper, or Premium Canvas. The canvas can be stretched and mounted onto gallery bars at your local framing shop.

✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽

Faux-Polaroid borders:
I leave a ½-inch white border around the top three edges of each print and a 1 1/2-inch white border around the bottom edge of each print to create the illusion of a Polaroid. This lends a lovely contemporary feel to the dreamy images. If you prefer a different border option, please let me know in the "message to seller" box.

✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽

Protection:
I finish the canvas with PremierArt Print Shield lacquer; which coats the canvas from water, UV, fading and scuff damage.

✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽ ✽

Shipping:
I ship in waterproof, sturdy mailers by regular post. I use recycled materials when appropriate.
