The Camino de Santiago, also known as The Way of St. James, is a historic religious pilgrimmage that dates back to Europe's Middle Ages. There are multiple routes to get to Santiago de Compostela which is one of the three holiest locations in the Catholic Church. To have officially completed the pilgrimmage a pilgrim has to have walked at least 60 miles continuously by foot before arriving at Santiago de Compostela. Many thru-hikers have done the 500-mile trek from France. I hiked parts of the Portugese Way, Spain Coastal and French Way over the course of a week for approximately 60 miles with a tour company that I work for. What is notable about the Camino de Santiago is that it was a largely forgotten route as recently as the early 1980's. Interest gradually started picking up and now it is one of Europe's most popular hikes.

For fine art photography prints on premium paper, I value the ability to extract as much detail as possible from my print files. The desire for detail led me to Canson Rag Photographique paper which is a high Dmax paper featuring a matte surface with minimalist smooth texture. Rag Photographique is truly one of the finest art papers in the world and the best way to see my work the way I had envisioned it. Estimated turnaround time for our museum-grade cotton rag prints is 2 weeks.
Canvas Gallery Photo Wraps are an eye-catching way to display photography in homes and businesses. Stretched over wooden frames, canvas wraps “pop” from the walls on which they are mounted. There is no need to deal with cumbersome frames as my canvas wraps come ready to hang on the wall. These ready-to-hang prints are often more cost-effective than framing a traditional photo print. With a heavily-textured surface, canvas prints are not ideal for photos that feature a lot of small details as they can get “buried” within the texture of the canvas. Sweeping landscapes and travel imagery are suitable for canvas. Estimated turnaround time for our canvas gallery wraps is 2 to 3 weeks.
The Lumachrome process is engineered to overcome and surpass the limitations of traditional continuous tone Lightjet processes and inkjet processes. Details appear to emerge in 3D from the depths of the image with the Lumachrome process thanks to the transparency layer that is infused with iridium particles and is preserved in a layer suspended between the white poly surface and non-glare TruView acrylic. Your ready-to-hang print includes a 1/8" acrylic facemount with a 6mm or 12mm Comatex backing and an HD 1.375" ROMA back mounted floating frame.
