We have now done a full inventory of all Limited Edition prints and have updated the PRINT SHOP.  I have 7 Mad Hatter (now only 4)  and 3 Skull Mask prints of Ville left – that were set aside for an exhibition – which have now become available.   That is it for both print runs.  Once they are gone, they are gone!  I have added a beautiful shot of Cristina from Lacuna Coil from the Holborn Studios shoot where we really did smash an 8ft piece of toughened glass.  It is 20″x16″  and printed on the most incredibly vibrant 260g Satan paper.  This is a new material for me which I am using on a few select images which suit the style.  I have used the same material for a portrait I shot of the late Sir Christopher Lee which again is just breath taking!  Sir Chris and Cristina are both strictly Limited Editions of only 50 20″x16″.


I also have Ozzy,  Avenged Sevenfold, Slash, Ghost, Slipknot, Greenday and a few Foo Fighter editions that have all been worked on so they are stand alone pieces of art to hang on your wall.

These aren’t just regular photo prints! What I am trying to do is bridge the gap between photography and fine art by only using select images that will work well on display and using materials similar to that of a screen print or etching.

The process from original image to final artwork is time consuming and often difficult.  Each image is test printed adjusted and test printed again by a professional print house in West Sussex ( under my supervision until I am totally happy with the final artworks.  Once approved the Limited Edition is printed, numbered, signed and stored in a temperature controlled environment until sold.  The prices in the PRINT SHOP vary on size, paper used (either satin or GICLEE 100% Cotton, Acid free) and the quantity remaining in the Limited Edition.  Each print is wrapped in protective paper -with its certificate of authenticity and sent recorded, signed for delivery(worldwide) in a heavy duty protective postage tube.  All UK orders P&P are free and international orders are charged a flat rate.

I will be producing a Metallica edition with James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett in the coming months.  I have also been experimenting with hand made photographic paper and the results are stunning – each print is totally unique.  The process is very time consuming and difficult using real silvers to sensitise the paper and real gold to tone the prints.  I will try a few more tests over the coming weeks and display them here first before making a decision on whether to produce a very small print run.

Thanks to everyone who has purchased a print.  I really hope you love them as much as I do. If you have been thinking about buying some art and have space on your wall for something truly unique and different then I hope you consider investing in one of my prints.

Thanks and I’ll be back with more updates soon!
