I came into printmaking via a long established career as a professional photographer. I bought one of the first available inkjet printers purely to produce reference work, and I was quite astounded at the quality of the results. At that time longevity was a real issue as the inks were still in a state of development. Ink, paper and printer manufacturers have been researching and working towards a satisfactory solution, and are now confident to offer a high quality product with a lifespan in excess of 200 years. I have been producing and selling my own limited editions over the past ten years.
More recently I have been working to produce prints for other photographers and fine artists, particularly those working in digital media, who are turning to inkjet in preference to silkscreen and other traditional media. Thanks to the consistency of the results, I can hold digital files to produce prints from limited editions as they are needed, avoiding the problems of storage and possible damage.
