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.
Archie Hamilton began exploring the art of the lens in 1965 as a member of the US Arms forces. While on duty in Mannheim, Germany he first explored landscape photography with a fixed lens thirty-five mm camera. Thanks to the activity center on the Army base, he was able to hone his craft and learn from talented comrades on the field.
Upon his discharge and return to the USA, he worked for a short time as a school photographer. Then followed a period of career exploration before a move to New York to attend the Fashion Institute of Technology. This lead to a contract as studio photographer, magazine and motion picture still photographer for The Board of Mission of the United Methodist Church both in the US and abroad, notably in Africa, Asia and Eastern Europe.
Hamilton has been steadily exhibiting his work in solo and group shows across the US for the past thirty years.
