A range of the finest products available to professional photographers in Australia have been hand selected exclusively for my private clients to display and enjoy their custom artwork in their homes.

Living in a rural area myself, I understand the inconvenience of having to organize artwork to be framed and mounted so I take pride in offering my clients only finished, ready to enjoy wall art and albums that can be displayed in their home immediately.

These heirloom products are of the highest archival quality, designed to last more than a lifetime and include:

  • luminous and stylish Acrylic prints
  • custom framed float mount prints on Fine Art Paper
  • ready to hang gallery wrapped canvas
  • exquisite handcrafted heirloom quality albums

Acrylic and canvas prints come with a 30 and 75 year guarantee respectively.

Prices start at $150 for single prints, $450 for collections and $1500 for heirloom albums.

Digital Negatives

As much as I love to see my clients enjoying their images every day in the real world, I also recognize your need to have your precious images with you for safekeeping.

Web size digital files with the MWP logo suitable for phone albums and social sharing are complimentary with every print purchased.

High resolution digital files suitable to print up to 8"x10" are complimentary with all Wall Art purchased.

When you buy a print, you are buying a single copy of that image. However, when you buy a digital negative, you are buying unlimited copies of that image.  High resolution digital negatives are therefore a premium product and priced accordingly.

Digital Collections of 3+ fully edited images are provided on USB with personal use Print Release

Collections: 3 images $1500,   10 images $2500,  20 images $3500

The Masterpiece Painted Portrait

As an Internationally collected, multi award winning traditional and digital artist, I am one of the only Professional Portrait Photographers in Australia who is able to offer exclusive, original, hand painted Masterpiece Portraits to my clients.  

These paintings are created completely by me, none of the artwork is outsourced to anyone else to complete. These mixed media paintings are created using only the highest quality acrylic and oil paints to ensure your Masterpiece painting will last for generations.

Due to the time required to create these portraits, only a limited number of commissions for these paintings can be accepted each year and they are exclusive to Private photography clients.

Mixed Media Painted Portraits: from $2500
