For several years now, fine art printing has been been one of the proverbial irons in the fire for me.
It’s a great complement to my “normal” tasks, which mostly include shooting assignments and licensing stock imagery. I’ve been lucky enough to parlay my massive years-long stock collection into a fine art catalog that hospitals and other businesses enjoy looking through and making selections from it to hang on their walls.
“Printing days” can be long, but it’s always rewarding to see the finished work created from a mix of ink, paper and a finely tuned digital file. And every day I’m printing means that I’m hanging around the family…and that’s a good thing. The kids check in often, and the only hazard is playing ball anywhere near the finished prints as they lay ready for packaging (above, Luke is laying among yesterday’s batch).
