How I print my images
I print my own images up to a size of A3+ on an Epson SureColor P600 Inkjet Printer using Epson UltraChrome® HD Ink for exhibition-quality prints.
I like printing my own images as this allows me full control over the final look of the image. In addition, it gives me the ability to experiment with different papers to see which will reflect the best the feeling I had when I was creating the image.
For A2 size and above I outsource my printing to a local professional lab that specialises in fine art printing. I have worked with them for a while and as with my own printing I retain full control of the image, however I do bow to their experience to help make sure the larger size prints all come out at the highest quality.
I use the following papers as I feel they complement the images and help create the unique feeling of the images.
