Through servicing customers for over 20 years I have learnt a great deal about the framing process and have refined this to a standard online offering and then an additional offline bespoke service.
Standard Online Service
I offer the choice of three classic frame moldings as standard options - Black, Roma 'Natural' Timber and White. These have been chosen as they are clean, simple and timeless moldings designed to compliment the artworks.
A mat-board is placed around the artwork extending to the frame, which adds to it's overall size and appearance. Generally speaking a slightly wider mat-board is used for larger prints which adds again to the overall size and impact of the framed artwork. All materials used are of the highest standard and acid free, ensuring the longevity of the print.
Finally your framed print is finished with a specialised UV Art Glass popular with galleries and museums and renowned for it's anti glare and high clarity rating.
It goes without saying that each framed artwork is designed to be quite stunning.
Bespoke Offline Service
Additional to the options available above I offer a full bespoke framing service whereby I am able to work with you to find the perfect solution for your space.
This often includes 'mocking-up' finished framed options onto photo's that you send me to give you a realistic idea of what the final framed artwork will look like.
I can consult on the vast framing options available and have created many beautiful finished pieces for clients with very stylish Boden frames or hand made Italian Bellini frames as examples.
Additionally I work with clients on other options which I have used many times over the years such as Fujiflex (framed or Acrylic Face Mount) and canvas (stretched or box-framed). Also non-standard print sizes can be created etc
Any additional cost is communicated clearly and this process is managed personally with you.
Further information on the consultation service can be found in the Consultation Tab.
Sizes in the selection panel above are the 'Image Size' ie this is the size of the printed photograph.
All photographs come with an additional 5cm white border around all sides. This allows space for matting and framing and is also the space in the lower right hand side where the photograph is numbered and signed by Richard.

I have been creating photographic artworks for over 20 years and during this time have garnered a lot of knowledge on the finer details of this craft. This knowledge has led me into providing a highly personalised art consultancy service which is unique to each client.
Essentially with the myriad of options available from print media through to framing I am able to help guide you through the choices to find the best solution for your space.
Different clients have differing needs but often the starting point is to see how an artwork will look on your walls. One simple service I am able to provide is a mock-up of what a framed artwork will look like on your walls. To achieve this you send to me a few clear photograph of the space where you intend an artwork to hang.
Also send to me the name of the photograph/s you are considering and I will mock-up a design of the framed art on your walls and any initial thoughts on options available.
Much of my collection can be printed to mega-size allowing for some amazing solutions that really provide the 'wow' factor.
Also customers often want their artwork provided on an alternative material. I use the worlds finest canvas producers to create stunning canvas prints which can be stretched or finished in a box-frame.
Also for those wanting a super glossy look I have printed on FujiFlex for many years. This stunning media looks amazing framed or acrylic face-mounted.
When it comes to framing your print there are many options that can be considered. I often use Roma and Boden frame moldings or hand made Italian Bellini frames. There are literally countless options available.
If you have something more custom that you are considering please get in contact. I am very happy to make suggestions and love working with clients finding the perfect solution for your space.
I work personally with clients from all over New Zealand to find the perfect solution for your space.
Using only the world’s finest materials and meticulous craftsmanship in every step of production, each limited edition artwork is a stunning creation designed to last through generations.
After final inspection your artwork is carefully rolled into a steady tube and sent to you by tracked, signed and fully insured courier.
This is a good way for you to receive your print and have it framed locally at a time that suits you - recommended care and framing instructions are included for your framer.
I want you to have complete certainty in the artwork arriving in perfect condition so in the very unlikely event that the artwork is damaged while in transit, I will have it collected, and a new print issued and sent back to you at no additional charge.
International clients please be aware that you are responsible for any import duties that may be applied.
Framed prints are available for New Zealand customers, allowing you to receive your completed artwork and hang it directly in your chosen place and enjoy.
I want to ensure that your framed artwork arrives in perfect condition so I use specialised artwork packaging and reliable and fully insured couriers.
It is highly recommended for international customers that artworks be purchased unframed, and framed locally. If you explicitly want your artwork framed and shipped internationally please contact me for shipping options.
