Photograph of Mount Rainier and the Nisqually River on a sunny day.

Rainier and the Nisqually

Mt Rainier National Park, Washington

I love working up close with rocks and boulders. When I spotted this river, named Nisqually, coming down the south side of Rainier during my research for this trip, I knew I wanted to spend some time there. The great thing about working close to the foreground elements is the possible compositions are endless. When I'm working the wide-angle lens, I can move my camera position just a few inches up, down, or over, and it completely changes the "flow" of the image. I love to spend a lot of time in areas like this, just experimenting and trying to outdo my previous composition.

The weather was great for this kind of shot. Cumulus clouds were spaced out and the wind pushed them along quickly. This created ever-changing shadows through the frame. Once I had framed this shot how I liked it, I took several exposures over the next few minutes as the shadows moved across the view in front of me. I wanted the foreground and all of Rainier in light, and an area of shadow separating them to increase the feeling of depth. It didn't take long to get what I was looking for.

Matted Print

Matted Print

These elegant open-edition and limited-edition matted prints are my most popular format. I personally create each of these beautiful art pieces in my studio in Texas. The photograph is printed on Vibrance Metallic paper, by Breathing Color, a Texas-based paper company. The print is then dry mounted in an archival mat which I hand-cut to fit the image. These matted prints are ready to be inserted into a frame of the same size.

Please note that the size listed is the size of the mat, or frame size, not the photograph size. The mat edges are roughly 2" to 5" wide, depending on the mat size chosen. For example, a 16"x20" Matted Print will have a mat size of 16"x20" and a viewable image size of roughly 12"x16". A 56"x40" Matted Print will have a mat size of 56"x40" and a viewable image size of roughly 48"x32".

The mat is signed on the lower right and numbered on the lower left. The print is also signed and numbered underneath the mat in case you'd like to put the photograph into a different mat.

Each size of Matted Print has its own limited edition. Learn more about my Limited Editions.

Matted & Framed Print

The matted print (description above) is inserted into the frame of your choice with museum-grade anti-reflective glass (or reduced-glare acrylic if shipping), and an acid-free 3/16" foam-core backing. Finally, the back is sealed with frame sealing tape to protect the artwork from its environment. Each frame includes soft "bumpers" in the bottom corners to protect your walls, the photograph's certificate of authenticity, and a cable making it ready-to-hang, straight out of the box.

After checkout, Contact me to let me know which moulding style you would like.

Canvas Print

Canvas Print

Canvas prints are both beautiful, durable, and affordable. I create these canvas prints by hand in my home studio in Texas. The photograph is printed on thick and heavy Lyve canvas, by Breathing Color, a Texas-based company. I then spray-laminate the canvas to protect the inks from moisture and abrasions and to add a lovely satin finish. The canvas is then stretched on sturdy 1.5" stretcher bars and presents with a black edge. If you'd like a different edge color, please let me know.

The canvas will come with soft bumpers on the lower corners to protect your walls, a label of authenticity, and a cable that makes it ready-to-hang, straight out of the box.

Great care is taken to ensure my fine art prints show the colors and tones that are intended. Due to variances of color and tone in displays, what you see on your monitor, tablet, or phone may be somewhat different than the colors and tones of the print.

Regular production time for a typical order is about a week. If I expect it to take longer, I will let you know.

While the above options will suit the majority of my collector's needs, please contact me if you need to customize your photograph further, whether it be size, frame, or mount.
