Bigger isn’t always better!  I have to keep telling myself this as I make my newer, smaller sized 11×14 inch prints and the frames that go with them.  I’ve always prided myself in being able to capture and create impeccably detailed large fine art prints, up to 40×50 inches.  Because I love the look and feel of a stunning, large print, I use a large format 4×5 camera for all of my fine art prints.  Because I’ve had lots of requests for smaller photos, I’ve finally changed my bigger is better mindset and begun producing 11×14 inch prints that have proven to be very popular.  Below is an image of a custom made 11×14 inch print that I made this past summer.  In the Photo is Bend, Oregon’s Shevlin Park with Tumalo Creek flowing through the middle of the image.  Fall color was amazing two years ago, when I captured this particular photograph. To view some more photos of Shevlin Park in its autumn splendor, check out this previous blog entry. Shevlin Park Pictures.

My new line of 11×14 inch prints will appear much like the print seen in the photo above.  If the print is framed by me it will have a hand made cherry wood frame like the one seen above.  They will be dry mounted, be single matted(double matting is too busy for a smaller print size like this one and they will be behind UV protected glass.  Like all of my fine landscape photographs, they will be hand signed by me, and they will have a hanging wire on the back.  This all comes for the low,low,low price of $250!  In all honesty, I don’t know where else you could find an archival fine art photograph, hand signed, mounted, matted, with glass and a hand crafted cherry wood frame for $250.  All of the images in my Oregon fine art landscape portfolio will be available in this smaller size, so if you’d like to buy a unique gift for someone special, please drop me a line or give me a  call.  541.610.4815.  To see my complete portfolio of Bend area landscape photography, please visit my homepage Bend Oregon Landscape Photographer
