I use medium format cameras, (Mamiya RB67, Mamiya 645 Pro and 24mp Digital slrs) for image capture.   The prints are mounted on 4 ply museum board and overmatted with the same.  I leave a small border around the printed image so as to not cut off even a tiny amount of the image and also so that the matt does not harm the edge of the image.  The prints are also available unmounted. Each print is signed, dated and given an edition number.  The prints are corner mounted using mylar mounting corners and strips. The mylar strips overlaps the print  with an archival non stick edge.    

I usually print my photographs on the magnificent Epson Exhibition Fine Art  Fiber Paper. If you loved the look of darkroom silver halide photographs, you'll find images on this paper wonderful. This paper has a medium "dull" gloss  and a subtle fiber texture just as you expect from a "traditional" darkroom print.  I always print on a low gloss paper, not a matte surface. I like the rich "jewel" like surface. 

WHY I PRINT DIGITALLY: As a perfectionist, digital printing has offered me the ability to fine tune my work to fit my exact vision.  I often will rework an image again that I may have thought is finished, sometimes approaching the image from scratch and NOT simply pressing the PRINT button as some darkroom practictioners seem to think.  Working in the "lightroom" requires just as much of the Human element.  It still requires patience, artistry, intelligence and above all talent.  With the advent of pigment printers and papers by Hahnemuhle, Epson and Ilford, images printed digitally can now exceed the archival life span of traditional methods and can have a beauty all their own.   Digital printing is  a process. It does not produce the image-THE ARTIST PRODUCES THE IMAGE.  Ultimately a camera is only a device for capturing an image, whether it is film or digital and the process one uses for printing the image is a highly personal one.
