In order to make room for new frames and prints in my studio, I am selling my existing framed prints that I built to showcase my photography and frame building abilities. These are all handmade and built in exactly the same was as all my frames with the prints being done using Giclee printing.

Night Fire and Derelict Farm House

$POA

These two frames and prints were built as a matched pair with the Milky Way forming the backdrop to both and can be purchased together at a discount, or individually.

The frames, which measure around 35″x15″ and 37″x15″ were made from reclaimed yellow pine from a house renovation with a delicate inlay of red oak between maple. The corners were completed with dark walnut splices for strength and the frames have a nice gentle central concave profile and a slopped inner edge, finished with linseed oil and paste wax.

The first image is the Milky Way as viewed from Bush Island in Lunenburg County, Nova Scotia. The second image is of a derelict farmhouse just outside of Barrs Corner, also in Lunenburg County, Nova Scotia. Both images were produced from over 50 individual shots and it took several days each to complete of the final images in Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop

Voglers Cove, Nova Scotia

$POA

For this picture the frame measures around 36″x15″ and is made from the same reclaimed yellow pine as the above two pictures. This time however the inlay is one of reclaimed dark walnut and the profile is more complex with a central concave section, a sharply raked inner edge as well as a beveled and stepped outer edge. In addition the corner splices on this frame are a sandwich of maple between dark walnut to add a little extra detail to the overall finish. As with all my work the frame has been treated to several coats of linseed oil and paste wax to really bring out the wood grains.

The image you see is one a location called Voglers Cove, one of many old fishing coves on the South Shore of Nova Scotia, in which you can see the remains of an old pier and what was once a fisherman’s hut with the very faint glow of the sun setting over the horizon.

Sunset at Peggys Cove Lighthouse

$POA

This stunning sunset picture of the Peggys Cove Lighthouse in Nova Scotia sits in a 20″x16″ frame made from piece of rough cut ash, a hard and dense wood, which in this case had been left outside to age and dry for over 20 years. The frame is a simple yet elegant design with a slightly concave profile that reduces the frames thickness towards the outer edge. For the corners, I have again used reclaimed dark walnut and unlike my other frames this one has a solid back dust cover over the rear, others usually have a thick paper cover to prevent dust entering the inside of the frame.

The picture was taken in 2019 just as the sun was setting and like all of my work is a combination of multiple individual images, each taken at 7 different exposures that were combined into a single larger final image.

The biggest challenge with this particular location is timing the shots to avoid other tourists who are visiting the site, yet I also have to ensure the duration of entire picture range is within a couple of minutes to ensure they can be stitched together. If the time between the first and last picture is too long the movement of the sky and the sun especially becomes quite obvious.

Blue Rocks at Blue Hour

$POA

Despite what some people have assumed, this picture has not been adjusted to make it look as blue as it is. It was shot during what is called ‘Blue Hour’, the last hour between sunset and night time when blues can be especially saturated.

Blue Rocks is very well known in Nova Scotia for this particularly well photographed old, but still used fishing hut perched on top of a small rocky island.

For the frame which measures approximately 44″x21″, I wanted to keep it aligned with the clean and simple theme of the picture and opted for soft pine with a single sloped profile that reduces the thickness from the inside of the frame out to the edge. This made it a little challenging to inset the walnut corner splices as the edge is quite thin, yet it works really well.
