There’s snow business

There’s no business like snow business like no business I know
Everything about it is appealing …

This year, for the first time in nearly a decade, we had a heavy snow in St Monans. The snow lay round about, deep and crisp and even. So I have a whole new batch of photos of St Monans covered in a blanket of the powdery frozen white stuff.

Here are a dozen photos from 2018 that I am making available as A4 prints and A6 cards.

As noted on previous posts, the web address is only added to online graphics and is not present on cards or prints,

( P.S. … apologies to Irving Berlin )

Pricing:

  • Cards are £1 each, or with another three designs (see below), as a set of 15 printed cards for £10.
  • Bulk orders of the same design are available on request.
  • Images are also available as high quality glossy prints mounted on cards (£2 each or three for £5):
    and as mounted prints (9″x6″ print in A4 mount, £10; A4 print in A3 mount, £15)

The three additional designs from previous years are:

The Spring Collection …

It looks like winter is finally behind us, so while the prints of St Monans in the snow and cute robins are still available, I’m busy lining up new prints that reflect the change of season, including wildlife such as seabirds and squirrels, and landscapes with great skies, sunrises and sunsets.

I’ll be adding them as a series of pages, each displaying a slideshow of images that are available at a particular size or aspect ratio.

I’m starting off with prints designed to fit A4 frames, a page each for landscape and portrait, and these will be followed by pages for panoramic images, square images, and so on.

First up is A4 Landscape. I’ll be adding more images to this and the other pages as time goes on, so be sure to check back periodically for the expanded range as it becomes available.

To whet your appetite, here is a photo of a cormorant, drying out near to the East Pier, St Monans:

Note that the imagenic website address is only there as a watermark for the online preview, not on prints as sold (they may have a very discrete signature, but that’s all).

St Monans in Mono

St Monans in the Snow (monochrome)

I’m always happy to consider bespoke requests, whether for a print from a photo on the blog, or a particular size, mount, frame, material, or as here, a request for a black and white version of the first Imagenic offering, the 120cm x 30cm canvas print of St Monans in the Snow.

This could have been done by using a straight greyscale conversion, but it was intended for display in a room which already has a black and white drawing, so I decided to prepare several versions using different styles of rendering the shading in black and white, including ones that resembled ink and pencil sketches and line drawings. I’m pleased to say that we agreed that one of the sketch styles was best, since it gave a good range of shades will retaining detail. You can’t see that detail in the picture above, as its scale is reduced 1:10, but to show you what it looks like at full resolution, here is a section of the picture.

Christmas is coming …

Since setting up as a business, I’ve sold a few prints and the cards are now selling well. Maybe you are thinking about ordering a print for Christmas, or would like a few seasonal cards of St Monans in the Snow, robins and other wildlife?

If so, please note that I don’t yet carry a big stock. I have a handful of prints to let people see what photos look like on canvas or aluminium, and I can print smaller glossy photos, but if I need to order prints, that takes a few days, and it may take longer as Christmas approaches. Likewise, I have a few hundred cards, but if I get big orders, it will take a few days to restock.

So if you are thinking about ordering prints or cards, please let me know sooner rather than later … thanks.
