What exactly do you do?

I am a nature photographer. My printed work is available on this site in several different styles and on different products where appropriate. I also create motivational posters using my photographs and often times my own written expressions. Sentiment written by another will always appear with credit to the original author unless unknown.  

I am also an encaustic artist. The encaustic technique is amazingly compatible with photography and has become my favorite treatment for my best images. Encaustic medium is a mixture of beeswax and damar resin which creates an extremely durable bond over an image making it impervious to moisture and dust, impossible to tear, and presentable without the need for glass covering the image. I offer the encaustic process as a way for you to preserve your favorite images for a lifetime. 

Will you edit my photo? At the very least your photo will need to be resized before it is printed and the encaustic process begins. Depending on the design style you have selected other edits done on computer and or by hand could be included. This could mean in addition to resizing the image, clearing the background, replacing the background, sharpening the image, and adding certain artistic elements to the design.

Can I send a photo taken with my phone? Yes, most phones today have quality cameras built in. If your photo need a little cropping or tweaking to improve resolution I can handle that but I can't make a bad photo into a good one. Please be sure your subject is front and center in your photo and that the photo is as clear as possible.
