Portraits

If you are interested in commissioning a portrait shoot, the arrangement is a non-refundable $200.00 upfront deposit that is fully applicable against purchase of prints from the shoot.

To make arrangements, please contact me using the contact form at the lower right.

Print prices are:

  • Subject to change without notice;
  • inclusive of GST; and
  • inclusive of local delivery cost.

I take Visa, MasterCard and American Express. 

I don't use a different business name as I use my own, "William Danby".
My ABN is: 46 287 989 386.

The purchase of a print does not confer any rights to reproduce that image. (See my copyright page.)


I print onto cut sheets, as shown below. The actual image dimensions will be as large as that sheet can accommodate with the usual margins. So, unless the proportions of the image are exactly those of the sheet, the margins on one dimension of the sheet will be larger than the minimums shown for that sheet.


All prints are from images photographed by me, and printed by me. All prints are signed by me on the reverse. Matte papers are signed in pencil, and the more glossy papers (Cansons) are signed in ink. Where a pen is used for the signature, I use a pigment, acid-free, ink.


Sizes and Prices

A2 This largest size sheet is 420mm x 594mm (16.5 inches x 23.4 inches). Most images on A2 have a minimum of 35mm margins all around. That provides for a maximum image of 350mm x 524mm. The price for an image on A2 is, usually, AUS $300.00.
A3+ The sheet size is 328mm x 483mm (13 inches x 19 inches). Most images on A3+ have a minimum of 25mm margins all around. That provides for a maximum image of 278mm x 435mm. The price for an image on A3+ is, usually, AUS $225.00.
A3 The sheet size is 297mm x 420mm (11.7 inches x 16.5 inches). Most images on A3 have a minimum of 25mm margins all around. That provides for a maximum image of 247mm x 370mm. The price for an image on A3 is, usually, AUS $200.00.
A4 The smallest sheet size is 210mm x 297mm (8.3 inches x 11.7 inches). Most images on A4 have a minimum of 25mm margins all around. That provides for a maximum image of 160mm x 247mm. The price for an image on A4 is, usually, AUS $125.00.

Special rates for packages

Portrait Shoots — where all the prints are ordered at the same time: You pay the full price for the largest print, 75% for the second print (excluding duplicates, see below), and 50% for any additional prints (also excluding duplicates), where all the prints are ordered at the same time. 


DuplicatesDuplicates (same image, same size, ordered at the same time), are priced at 25%. Duplicates, however, are not counted as "second" or "additional prints" for the scale shown above. So, for example, two copies of the same image at A2 would cost $375.00 ($300.00 for the first print and $75.00 for the duplicate). But the next (different) print will be priced at 75%.

Electronic copies

Where prints are ordered, electronic copies of the images will be provided as well, but in low resolution (600 pixels along the long edge). These may only be used for non-commercial uses such as social media.


Non-portrait prints 

Most of my photographs are available as prints. If you see an image that you like, contact me (using the contact form at the lower-right) and I'll advise you in what sizes and on what paper(s) that image is available. (The information on this page is the same as the "Order Prints" page in my Gallery —  except for the videos below, that only appear here in the blog.)

Print longevity


Prints are made using highly stable, pigment inks. Estimates on the longevity of prints made using these inks on the archival-grade papers I use (shown below) are based on accelerated testing. Those estimates predict that prints displayed indoors and under glass will remain of high quality for up to 100 years for colour and 200 years for black and white.

The ink manufacturer advises, however, that, "Actual stability will vary according to the media, image, surface treatment, display conditions, light intensity, humidity and atmospheric conditions." Neither the manufacturer of the inks nor I provide any warranty or guarantee on the longevity of prints.

Prints are provided unframed and on untrimmed sheets, to afford your framers the greatest options. Prints at A4 sheet size are usually sent flat. Prints at A3 sheet size and larger are usually sent rolled and in a mailing tube or mailing triangle. Prints are always sent insured.


Papers


All of the the papers that I use are acid-free and of archival grade. They are all free of optical brighteners, and they are all of substantial weight (310gsm or greater). In short, these are exhibition quality papers.


Canson Baryta Photographique: 

This paper has the widest colour gamut of any of these papers, it resolves fine detail very well, and it's as bright as you'll get without optical brightening agents (OBAs). With its coating it needs to be handled carefully to avoid scratching. This is a thick (310gsm) paper.
Canson Platine Fibre Rag: 
Platine provides great blacks (it uses photo black ink), a neutral white, but a slightly smaller colour gamut than the Baryta Photographique. Lacking a baryta coating, however, it's a fairly robust paper. That makes it easier to handle. This is a thick (310gsm) paper.

Canson Infinity Rag Photographique:
The Rag Photographique is a beautiful matte paper. Very smooth and quite neutral. It's my replacement for the often out of stock Epson Hot Press Natural.
Epson Hot Press Natural (I have a few sheet still available, but otherwise it's off my list): 
HPN is a matte paper — and it feels like paper. It's smooth, but with no gloss. Pigment ink on HPN has a gorgeous, organic, look and feel. And, for a matte paper, the blacks are outstanding. It's very warm, so it works beautifully for portraits — particularly in black and white where I can skip adding a tone where I might otherwise have added one. This is a thick (330gsm) paper.
Unfortunately, this paper is often out of stock with Epson. The Canson above is the replacement
Epson Cold Press Natural (I have a few sheet still available, but otherwise it's also off my list): 
(Because of a lack of demand for Cold Press Natural, I'm phasing it out. But, if you're interested, please enquire.) CPN is a matte paper — and it too feels like paper. It has a texture, with no gloss. With its texture, this paper works best in larger sizes. Pigment ink on CPN, like HPN, has a gorgeous, organic, look and feel. And, for a matte paper, the blacks are outstanding. It's very warm, so it works beautifully for portraits — particularly in black and white where I can skip adding a tone where I might otherwise have added one. This is a thick (340gsm) paper.
