hartimages - new look

Thank you for looking through my images, and following the link to this page.

Snowy Trees, Canyonlands - Utah

My new website, hosted by SmugMug, is a full-featured gallery sharing site which gives you the ability to purchase images at various sizes - framed or unframed, cropped or uncropped, matt or glossy, on fine art paper, metal or canvas. Images are printed and shipped from Bay Photo in Santa Cruz, a professional photography service with 35 years of experience.

If you decide to purchase through the SmugMug site, you will notice that most of my images are not created in the traditional 5x7, 8x10, 11x14, etc. size, but are ‘full frame’ images direct from the camera. In other words, you get exactly what I saw through the camera, without cropping. I believe the resulting images are more pleasing to the eye, being a bit wider and having more of a true ‘landscape’ feel. SmugMug offers these modern paper dimensions so you can print full-frame images, and you will notice them when you click the BUY button; sizes such as 8x12, 12x18, and 16x24 will be available, and frames for these sizes are generally available from places such as Aaron Brothers, here in Boise.

The images you order from the SmugMug website will not be signed or numbered, but will have a small digital signature in the corner of the print. If you wish to purchase a signed and numbered image, then you will need to contact me by email. The images I print are 24x15 at the largest (on Moab Entrada, 100% acid-free archival paper), and up to 40x25 on archival canvas (which are simply stunning). I can ship the images rolled, or framed / stretched. These are limited editions, commonly in a run of 75.

I am excited about the new display properties of the SmugMug site, and in the next few months I hope to add more text content such as captions and locations of images.
