All prints are Digital Pigment prints on museum-quality acid-free papers such as Museum Etching, Canson Rag and Arches Velin. These papers are designed to meet galleries and museum longevity requirements and ensure consistency of shades 200 years old. The choice of paper is suggested by the Photographer according to his or her preferences.
All prints are Digital Pigment Prints using the latest top of the line technology, archival high dynamic inks and 200 years old life paper.
No, the photograph is not signed, instead the Photographer signs a Certificate of Authenticity (COA) which accompanies very limited edition prints (1 to 30). The COA protects the security and genuineness of your limited edition print. Larges editions (31 and more) don't come with a certificate of authenticity.
The smaller print sizes are produced in larger editions and do not come with a Certificate Of authenticity to make them more widely accessible and more affordable. Photographs are available in different formats depending of the artist, small, medium or larger scale. The large-scale print size is normally produced in a very limited edition (1-30 prints) making them more valuable because of the limited number available and they also come with a signed and numbered certificate of authenticity.
The Print Atelier aims to achieve accuracy between the photographs you see online and your final print. However we cannot be responsible for minimal differences deriving from reproduction techniques that may exist between the presented image and the print. Computer screens may differ and the colour and contrasts of the image on the screen may not look exactly like what you receive. This is because different types of monitors are calibrated differently. Also, any prints with a soft focus or texture work (grain, spots, etc.) were created that way for artistic purposes.
No. Our prints are on standard paper sizes and we don’t alter the image size and proportions to fit the paper. Each print has a minimum 0.5 inch white border.
David Ellingsen is a photographer and environmental artist creating images of site- specific installations, landscapes and object studies that speak to the natural world and Man’s impact upon it. At its core David's work is motivated by the challenges of sustainability within contemporary Western culture.
David has been exhibiting his work since 2001 within commercial and public galleries in Canada, the USA, Asia, and Europe. His photographs are part of the permanent collections of the Chinese Museum of Photography, the Dana Farber Cancer Centre at Harvard University and the Beaty Biodiversity Museum and have been shortlisted for Photolucida's Critical Mass Book Award, awarded First Place at the Prix de la Photographie Paris and First Place at the International Photography Awards in Los Angeles.
David is also recognized for his advertising, corporate and editorial photography with a client list that includes the Business Development Bank of Canada, Time Inc., Enbridge Inc., PricewaterhouseCoopers, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation along with Men's Health, People, Marie Claire and the New York Times magazines.
Originally from Cortes Island, a remote community of 800 residents in Canada's Pacific Northwest, David was raised on a small family farm surrounded by forest and ocean. His photography is rooted in this rural upbringing, which emphasized the importance of pairing quality with practicality, people with the environment and the individual with the communal. These values continue to inform his working life.
