WHAT IS A "GICLÉE" PRINT?
It is the finest kind of art printing that is known; cheap poster sites and printers do not offer it - all our prints are Giclée:
Please make a choice between the following - all superb and all the same price:
gloss metallic pearle
Please choose your size - all sizes are measured and listed by their longest side only - it makes no difference to price if your print is panoramic, rectangle or square.
All images are signed with a gold, silver or black pen. You will find an unprinted edge for ease of handling. The print is rolled in a protective plastic and mailed in a cardboard tube.
PROTECTION & LONGEVITY
The print is uncoated or laminated in any way; displayed as such achieves the greatest impact and connection to the viewer without barriers, but with the chance of slight changes to the surface, not image, which independent international testing laboratories allow Epson to certify a life span of 70 to 200 years in good condition.
If displaying unframed and without glass, hang in a room where cooking vapours, fire, smoke or fly sprays are unlikely to be present. As with all colour prints, direct sunlight and fluorescent lighting can speed fading. I do not use 'specialized UV sprays' because of the difficulties of uneven spraying, inferior surface finish and the presence of dust and hairs. Should minor cleaning - eg. a fly spot - by required eucalyptus oil or warm water on a cotton bud can be used. You may contact us for a free small sample to be sent to you for experimentation if so desired.
* These sizes can be too large for maximum quality for a small number of images; you will be contacted if so for a discussion.

I have been photographing professionally since 1983
The first 18 years, in film-only times, I owned a multi-task studio which had an even spread of wedding, industrial, advertising and people photography, using film cameras from 35mm to 5 x 4 inch.
It was a hectic, challenging and dynamic couple of decades; there were few kinds of image-subjects I was not asked to create.
When the wedding count topped 600 and I was in need of a healthy change, I sold up and Givenworks was born in 2000.
I became a landscape-only photographic artist and eventually author and publisher also, learning and embracing the digital age with computers, CMYK pre-press publishing and most of what Photoshop and InDesign offered.
My concentration on the panoramic landscape had begun years earlier with the purchase a a 6 x 17 [cm] film camera specially designed to produce 1 to 3 ratio images, 4 frames per 120 sized film.
After 12 years I added the shooting of multiple digital images from DSLRs which are computer-merged into one panoramic image of differing sizes and proportion including the connection of vertical panoramics to create large almost square images.
For the next 16 years, wall-art, posters, postcards, greeting cards, calendars, book publishing and distribution took my time but I am now free to concentrate just on creating images and art-work with photographic origins, for sale over many specialist niche websites. [see Links page] I have shot in 26 countries, published 6 books, contribute to the Getty Images stock library and have taught various photographic courses. My two favourite landscape countries, Australia and New Zealand dominate my art work.
