Giclée Prints

As well as being a photographer since 2004, i have worked in the print industry in one form or another since 1993.  I started my own print business (Big Exposure Print) in 2008. I specialise in large format inkjet printing or the more recent fancier term “giclee” (pronounced Zee-clay). This derives from the French verb 'gicler' for spray, which is in relation to how an inkjet printer lays the ink onto the medium. It is also used in relation to when archival acid free papers and archival inks are used as opposed to a standard desktop printer. I produce all of my own work to any size, either as canvas or fine art prints, giving me full control from start to finish.  It also means that I can produce my work at cost and don’t need to pay a third party and therefore keep my work affordable.

My printer uses 12 colours which gives the widest possible colour gamut (range of colours achievable). I use Canons Lucia inks which are lightfast for 75+ years. I use Hahnemühle's range of cotton papers.  Depending on the image, i will use either 310gsm German Etched which is a matt paper which is textured, or their 310gsm Photo Rag Satin. Unlike most Satins papers this paper is very subtle and has enough of the satin finish to really help give the image that perfect contrast.

Prints are supplied with mounts and framed prints are supplied with non reflective glass. If you would like a bespoke size, please get in touch for a price.
