UK Landscape Fine Art Prints – made with love
Archival, fine art prints - inspired by the spirit of the British landscape
England is my adopted home, and I've done most of my photographing here. My collection of England prints includes scenes from Cornwall, Devon, and the south-east, but also Norfolk, Suffolk, the Yorkshire Dales and Moors, and the marvellous Northumberland coast. By far the largest number of images, though, comes from the Lake District, an area well-beloved by landscape photographers, and one of my favourite places in Britain.

When I first moved to the UK in 2004 I spent most of my time travelling around England. Oh, my, if only I'd known what I was missing north of the border! I'm making up for lost time, however, and now my collection of Scottish landscape images makes up the bulk of my fine art prints. I've fallen in love with the Highlands and the Scottish islands like Skye, Mull, Islay, and the Western Isles. Well, with a last name like Ross it was inevitable, wasn't it?
Scotland prints ...
Wales has some of the most fantastic scenery in Britain - and such a range! Most of my work comes from Pembrokeshire, Anglesey, the Brecon Beacons, and the north, including Denbighshire and Snowdonia. I seem to have a lot of waterfall photos, which I suppose tells you something about the wonderful landscape of the Welsh countryside!

My photographs of British landscapes are available as fine art 'giclee' prints. Giclee is a kind of printing using jets of ink pigment, sprayed onto an archival print paper in an arrangement of very small dots. The result is a print of the very highest quality, retaining extreme detail, contrast, and exceptional longevity when used with an acid-free paper. You don't need to know the technical details, just be assured that my fine art prints will last a lifetime and look terrific!
My prints are made by a professional printer, a member of the prestigious Fine Art Trade Guild of Printers. These guys are pros, and know how to get the best out of an image, so your print will truly be a piece of art to treasure.
What does 'archival' mean? It means that under ordinary viewing conditions, such as a normal gallery, office or home environment, images should not fade or show other signs of ageing for at least 100 years. In fact, archival prints should theoretically last 200 years or more if stored in a darkened room, but that's rather silly, because no one would ever see your print then, and surely that's why you buy it in the first place!
I wanted to offer some of my photographs in a format that would make it easier for people who didn't want to purchase a limited edition print to still enjoy my work. So we've come up with a line of fine art greeting cards - printed at one of the top printing presses in the UK, to the same high standards as my limited edition prints, but, well, smaller and unlimited! These greeting cards can also be used to create a small framed print, as they come in a standard 5x7 inch size, easy for popping into a pre-made frame and mat. Choose from winter/Christmas scenes, landscapes, autumn colours, and funny gargoyle cards
I am proud to be the Official photographer of the National Trust for Scotland Foundation USA (NTSUSA) - preserving and celebrating Scottish heritage. I support the work of the NTSUSA and the National Trust for Scotland through a joint project we call the NTSUSA Image Collection. Part of the proceeds from sales of these prints go directly to the National Trust for Scotland to help preserve Scottish heritage, historic buildings, and countryside. Whether you purchase a print or not, please consider supporting the work of heritage organisations where you live, and help preserve our country's history and landscape.
I love Britain; the marvellous landscape of the UK is a source of constant inspiration to me. I draw upon my love for the landscape and hope that my images express the Spirit of the Land in all its wonder and mystery. In particular I find myself constantly drawn to historic sites like castles and prehistoric stone circles, and I hope that my images evoke the marvellous atmosphere of these historic sites.

The hush of a sunrise, the whisper of the wind, the rustle of flowing water - these are the most profound prayers I know. My photos are a heart-felt thank you to nature.
