Prior to the advent of the internet, the primary way to discover and
purchase fine art photography prints was to visit art
galleries and to attend art festivals. Most
art galleries carry a mix of different art mediums so if you are only
interested in fine art photography prints then you would likely only be able to
see a limited selection of photography on display. The art galleries that do
primarily feature photography generally fall into two camps: legendary
“masters of photography” who have long been deceased like Ansel Adams and Edward Weston, or the
Las Vegas tourist art galleries like Peter
Lik, Jeff Mitchum, etc… Almost all galleries are located in areas that
cater to a wealthy and affluent demographic.
With the invention of websites, art has become much more democratized. I
would argue that the quality of artwork available for sale has increased as a
result since art collectors are no longer limited to a few select artists with
limited inventory on-hand. Our online art gallery for example has approximately
100 photos on display. That’s likely more than what you would find in most
brick and mortar galleries. Since I’m not under pressure to move a specific
amount of inventory in order to pay staff and a landlord, I’m more free to
show my best work and my best work only. At a brick and mortar gallery, the
primary objective is to sell as opposed to showcasing interesting photography.
Sometimes there is overlap there but generally not.
What are the benefits of purchasing fine art photography prints from an
online art gallery?
More choices. The selection is often more vast. If you
want to see something specific chances are that you can probably find it at
an online art gallery such as mine. In addition to the 100+ photos
exhibited on this website, I have an extensive image collection of 150,000+
More cost-effective. Purchasing fine art prints from an
online gallery can be more cost-effective than purchasing from a brick and
mortar gallery. I try to offer the best-quality photo prints available
while keeping the prices reasonable. My art production costs per piece
aren't low but I rarely carry inventory on-hand, I don’t have staff to
pay other than myself and I don’t pay a landlord to keep the lights on.
With minimal overhead to worry about I’m able to pass the savings onto
you the art collector. A large, open-edition
40x60 inch canvas gallery wrap from me is available for $2,500. At an
art gallery, prints of that size could easily be 10x that amount at the
base price and printed on inferior archival papers than the museum-quality
prints that I offer.
You can purchase artwork from anywhere. There’s no
need to travel to Carmel, Santa Fe or SoHo anymore to purchase artwork.
Some options include cheap, mass-produced artwork that can be purchased at
anytime on sites like art.com, saatchiart.com or wayfair.com. For higher
quality fine art photography prints where you can directly interact with
the artist, you can browse fineartphotographyprints.com
then call or email me from the beach, the boardroom or your living room.
I'm here for you.
How can I purchase your fine art photography prints?
Browse the online photo galleries on this website and take note of the Photo
ID# for each print you would like to buy. I'm usually available via phone or
email from 8 am to 8 pm (PST), 7 days a week. I can also create a lightbox for
you based on your needs. Once you have decided on which prints to purchase I
will send you an online invoice that can be paid by credit card or PayPal.
Sign up for my mailing list. I promise I won’t email more than once a month.
Probably less frequently than that.
