Largest printed image to date.

3x1.5m Lions in the Ebony GroveI have just taken delivery of my largest commissioned print which is to be hung in an outside space. My lions in the ebony grove, which I photographed in Zambia, has been produced using a new weather resistant direct to media printing process by Genesis Imaging. The image is 3m wide x 1.5m high on brushed aluminium.

Direct to Media UV Printing is a large format, full colour ultra-fine inkjet printing process which allows artwork to be printed directly on to virtually any flat surface up to up to 3m x 2m and up to 60mm in depth, and is suitable for both interior and exterior display.

The ultra-fine droplets of ink are deposited directly on to the printing media which is then almost instantly cured, or dried by UV (ultraviolet) light. The specially developed ink droplets are bonded to the surface of the chosen media – giving a smooth, stable, abrasion resistant and long-lasting image.

I have often been asked by clients for images suitable to be hung outside, I am pleased that this process means that I can now offer this service.

There is link to Genesis Imaging on the right hand column under useful links.

Outdoor Finish

Masai Mara, Kenya, January 2015

I enjoyed great weather, special sightings and wonderful sunsets on my recent trip to the Mara. I was fortunate enough to spend time with Malaika the cheetah and her four six month old cubs (she gave birth to six, but has sadly lost two) and Siri the leopard, with her seven month old male cub. An old male lion worked hard to fight off a pack of twenty-three hyenas and four young lions, who were keen on his buffalo kill.

It was good to feel the Kenyan sun on my back again.  I am now starting to prepare for my summer exhibition at the Gallery@Oxo on London’s Southbank, which this year runs from July 24th to August 16th – more info nearer the time. Below are some images from the trip.
