Buyer Guide

Editions and Artist Proof

All limited edition prints are accompanied by a signed label of authenticity, while open edition prints are unsigned and not limited to an edition. Artist Proofs (AP) copies are produced to test the quality of the print or to be used for the Artist’s own purposes such as exhibitions. Artist Proofs are produced in addition to the limited edition.

Print Sizes

For Limited Edition Prints all dimensions refer to the printed size. Every Limited Edition print is produced with an additional 2.5cm white border that can be trimmed to allow framing to the edge without cropping any part of the image. Open Edition Prints dimensions refer to the paper size and the white border varies depending on the ratio of the print. 


All prints are produced in my preferred professional printing lab in London using the highest-quality printing methods on the finest archival papers. Unless otherwise specified, I mainly use Hahnemühle Photo Rag which is 308gsm, a heavy-duty matt paper made of 100% cotton rag with a natural white tone and superb black saturation. A subtle fibrous finish and understated colours give photographic reproductions an organic look and feel.

Mounting and Framing

Currently mounting and framing are options not available to purchase through the online shop, though if you would like to get your print mounted or framed, you can get in touch via email and you’ll be provided with a custom quote.

Turnaround Time

For UK shipping you can expect to receive your print approximately 5-10 days from the time of ordering. If you are an international buyer, this time may be longer.


All prices are exempt from UK VAT. Buyers based outside the UK may incur import duties when the parcel arrives in their own country. Please note that payment of these duties is the sole responsibility of the buyer.


At checkout please select the postage cost relevant to your country. For UK deliveries shipping is free, for most of the European countries is £10, while for every other country is £15. All prints are despatched directly from the printing lab in London.


If you would like to return your print, you can do so at any time, up to 30 days from the date of receipt. Prints must be returned in a saleable condition, returned prints that have marks caused by poor handling will not be accepted. To arrange a return, please get in touch by email.
