I've been toying with the idea of creating an online venue to sell my photographs for some time, but somehow never got around to putting the plan in action... until now.
I'm pleased to announce the opening of Original Photo Art – an online store where you can purchase signed, numbered, limited-edition prints.
The store is open now with five initial A3+ prints, each in a strictly limited edition of 30. These first photos are selected from trips in Lapland and Lofoten, and I'll be adding more each month.
There is always more to a photograph than meets the eye, and I want the images I make available to be a little bit special. Each has its own story, and I've spent a lot of time carefully editing, cleaning, sharpening, re-touching, toning, and giving some additional processing to create the right mood, transforming them into unique, beautiful pieces of art.
Also, these aren't your average, cheapo inkjet prints. They are printed using archive-quality, pigment inks on some of the finest photographic printing paper available: Hahnemuehle 308gsm Photo Rag. I hand print them myself, and my signature guarantees each one will look, and feel, stunning.

The prints are available in numbered editions of 30, so when you buy one, only you and 29 other people have that print. But for the ultimate unique artwork, check out the Commissions service. If you can't find a photo you like from the collection, you can send me one of your own images – something you've maybe always though would make a good print – and I'll work on it and create a one-off, totally unique print, just for you.
Any of the prints would make a fine addition to your home, or a perfect birthday gift or Christmas present.
To celebrate the launch I'm giving away (as in FREE!) one signed, numbered, limited edition print worth €85. What's more, you can even choose which print you'd like to win from the five currently available.
Here's what you have to do to enter the competition:
- Check out the photos on Original Photo Art.
- Leave a comment on this post saying which photo you'd like to win. Something along the lines of "I want to win the [insert photo name here] print.
- That's it! (Of course, if you feel like subscribing to Original Photo Art's RSS feed, signing up for email updates, or clicking the facebook / google+ / pinterest buttons while you're on the site, you're more than welcome!)
I'll randomly pick a winner after four of your Earth weeks, on
Monday, 1st October
The winner will be announced in the comments and contacted by email, twitter, or whatever means of communication you registered your comment with. If I don't hear back within 7 days of notifying the winner, I'll pick another, so stay sharp!
Okay, folks – good luck!
