Fine Art Print Gallery

Fine Art Print Gallery

Fine Art Print Gallery A lot more than people realize goes into producing fine art photography.  It’s not just as simple as pressing the shutter button on the camera.  Of course good quality equipment and optics is at least half the battle, but there is also something happening between photographer and subject during the image capture as well as something happening between photographer and image during the processing and printing stages.  In addition to technical craftsmanship and quality subject matter, the successful fine art print will convey the photographer’s spirit beyond whatever material phenomenon is presented to the viewer. I hope this should begin to answer the question as to…”Why is that print so expensive…it’s only a piece of paper.”  True, it is only a piece of paper- but that high quality archival paper is not exactly inexpensive, nor are the inks which are used to spray the image onto that paper.  Factor in the number of tests prints which went into creating the final proof, equipment costs, travel...

Learning One-on-One

Learning One-on-One

Private Tuition   There are so many ways to advance one’s photography skills.  Reading books on art & photography can be very educational.  Studying hundreds of quality images, then experimenting on your own can be even more useful. However, the best way to learn photography is through one-on-one interaction.  Within a short amount of time, private instruction can quickly increase knowledge and comfort level with both camera handling and photographic theory.  Beyond that, many of our clients further extend their  journey to learn more advanced camera techniques, software processing & fine art printing.  Additionally we consult many other professional photographers with improving their shooting technique, coming up with creative solutions for lighting predicaments, or showing them time-saving steps in image processing. A sampling of topics can be seen below.  They are broken up into individual categories for your browsing convenience.  Don’t see what you are looking for?  Sessions can be custom tailored to your needs. Sessions can be purchased on an individual basis or you may purchase a series...

Image Archiving & Restoration

Image Archiving & Restoration

Image Archive & Restoration   Photographs are an important part of family history.  They allow us to remember our past, help tell the stories of those before us and they even help solve family mysteries and settle disputes!  Ultimately, your photographs provide you with a direct linkage to your past.  Because these memories are so important and so very fragile, it should be a high priority to have repairs made to old prints that may be torn, faded, discolored or have perhaps suffered serious water or fire/smoke damage.  Perhaps you have important images that may exist only as a slide or negative, which can be restored, printed and/or converted to a high resolution digital format. [Insert Photo Examples Here] We offer a full range of image archiving and photographic restoration services.  In our studio we have the equipment to digitize any size photograph.  For over-sized or odd-shaped (domed, etc) print originals, we perform digital captures with a 36 megapixel device and distortion-free optics to ensure the highest quality.  We...

“I worked with Eric on several projects that required photographic imaging and image analysis. He is very detail-oriented and diligent. Deliverables are always high quality and on time. I would highly recommend him and look forward to the opportunity to work with him on other projects in the future.”  ~ Raymond Lanzafame, MD PLLC

“Two of the most important qualities any individual can have is the trust of others and a strong work ethic. Over the course of the last several years, Eric has provided consultation and insight for me on multiple occasions with respect to photography. Eric can be trusted for top-notch professionalism and attention to detail. He has been there each time, from start to finish, and truly puts his clients first. People that get to work with Eric are more than simply clients, but indeed friends and partners.”  ~ Mark Hadzewycz

“The entire experience was amazing from the first consultation to the “big day”, and if you’re like me, a post-wedding shoot in 90+ degree Philadelphia.  My wedding pictures were so beautiful I couldn’t believe it was me! My mom and I got all choked up when the album arrived. I couldn’t have been happier. Eric is easy to talk to and to work with and made myself, my husband and my bridal party feel at ease with the entire process. I can’t wait to have a reason to work with Eric again.”  ~ Gena Groves

“Eric and I have worked on numerous projects, all yielding superior outcomes for our clients.  This success is due in large part to Eric’s thorough, precise and methodical approach to scientific photography.  There is no room for error or poor technique when it comes to medical device clinical trials and submissions of FDA required documentation.  

I hope to continue this professional relationship with Eric because the chances of success are greatly increased when he is involved.”  ~ NST Consulting, LLC

It has been a complete joy working with Eric over the past 4 years.  He has an incredible eye for detail and works diligently to make sure every shot captures even the smallest of those details. 

He is an absolute professional and has been a wonderful partner in capturing images for my interior design website.  Not only is his work amazing, Eric has never been anything but incredibly patient and understanding during our photo sessions.  I HIGHLY recommend him.  ~ Cory Connor Designs

“I hired Eric to make a portfolio of my custom hat designs, as worn by models. He organized everything perfectly  – the models, hair & make-up, styling and location. The entire experience was extremely professional, yet personal at the same time. Sometimes hats are tricky to shoot, especially black hats, but he captured all of the fine details. His photographs of the hats and the models are simply gorgeous! I look forward to another photo shoot with Eric in the near future.”  ~ Monika Fine Millinery

“Eric is a superlative photographer and  professional, two things which do not always come hand-in-hand. We frequently hear that our wedding photographs are the best that people have seen. And though Eric’s artistry and finely-tuned aesthetic shines through in every one of them, not once did I feel that he departed from my own “vision” of the day. Eric produces wedding images that strike the perfect balance between an heirloom record and a modern feel.”  ~
