An Australian weevil. I’d order this one as a 12×18″ print on lustre paper with the 3/4″ standout mounting.

Spring is here, the insects are waking up, and in honor of the season I’m having a sale. If you’re looking for a gift for your graduating entomologist, this is for you! Click on the link to visit the gallery:

Now, some details.

I have partnered with Bay Photo Lab in California for printing. Bay’s color reproduction and paper quality is consistently excellent, better than I have been able to manage myself. In fact, I’m giddy every time prints arrive in the mail!

Bay’s options for mounting and framing are simple but good quality. I especially recommend the 3/4″ standout mount for the 8×12″ and larger prints. The mount has the effect of turning a photo into a museum-quality piece, and if you order a number of prints you’ve got your own gallery.

Paper choices are lustre and metallic. Lustre is standard, high-grade photo paper. Metallic is contrasty and luminous with more “zing”, and they are… well, metallic. Whites come out as silvery, for example. Personally, I find the effect a bit too much for most photos. The metallic papers perform better for a subset, such as the metallic beetle and the ants on black.

I am happy to sign prints for an added $25 (potentially more for international orders). Allow an extra week for delivery, as the print must be shipped here before I send it out. To order a signed print, just send me an email and I’ll put your order in.

Do let me know if you have any questions.
