The Prints

Landscapes are all about light. It is even more important than the land itself. And that spectacular light is fleeting, often just minutes or even seconds, and usually best at the beginning and end of the day. Fortunately, Derek is – and always has been – an early riser and he records that captivating light on old-fashioned Fuji film.

After processing, this film is then carefully scanned and the Limited Edition prints are painstakingly created on matte paper using the latest digital technology and will last much longer than us (more than 100 years), provided they’re kept in optimal conditions.

Most images are in Editions of 50, a very few just 25. They are all signed and numbered below the image area and there is a white border right around of at least 20mm (with one or two early exceptions), allowing easier handling and giving more framing options. They are rolled and inserted into protective tubes for free delivery anywhere in the world.

Each photographic print is also a sound investment, an affair of heart and head. Later prints in the series sell for higher prices, protecting your original investment as well as providing pleasure.
