Fine Art Photographs

Rodney’s work represents the highest quality in the Fine Art Photography world today. He has taken the time to learn the craft including studying cameras, film and technique, without relying on post-production work and super enhancements. Rodney uses film cameras to shoot and his images are developed in a specialized dark room. They are printed on the highest quality material available called Fuji Crystal Archive FLEX (FCA). This material has been quality tested and proven to last well over 140 years without UV damage, meaning Rodney’s fine art can be passed down for generations without risk of fading.

Rodney’s fine art photographs are available in three offerings, Limited Editions, Artist Proofs and Studio Proofs. These photographs are available in loose, matted and framed styles. Framing styles include Artist‘s Series, Koa, Della Terra and Vista Mount. 


Limited Edition Photographs

Most of Rodney’s images are available in Limited Editions of 500. Unique edition numbers are displayed on each photograph along with the artist’s signature. Strict assignment guidelines ensure that each individual edition number is assigned to only one collector. A corresponding certificate of authenticity accompanies each photograph.  Pricing varies by size and quantity sold, and they are available loose, matted, and/or framed.

After every 100 Limited Edition photographs are sold, the image appreciates to the next appreciation level across all sizes, making for a truly “limited edition” image to be treasured always.

A maximum of 500 FCA photographs, for each image, will be created in the following image sizes, inclusive of size:

Standard format: 16x20, 20x24, 30x40, 40x50, 50x62.
Standard Pano format: 10x24, 15x40, 25x66, 31x83, 45x120.
Tall Pano format: 12x20, 24x40, 42x70.


Artist Proof Photographs

Artist Proof – “An artist’s proof is, at least in theory, an impression of a print taken in the process to see the current printing state being worked on by the artist. A proof may show a clearly incomplete image, often called a working proof or trial impression, but in modern practice is usually used to describe an impression of the finished work that is identical to the numbered copies.” 1

Artist proofs are a part of the process and are not included in the count of a limited edition. An artist’s proof has special value because of its extra rarity and its possible differences from the “standard” print, factors that are often reflected in its price. Collectors also usually prefer final artist’s proofs even when they are identical to the main edition.

Rodney’s makes his Artist Proofs available to the public as high quality photographs limited to 50 of each image. The value of Artist Proof editions increases based on increased demand and decreased availability. Because Artist Proof editions are inherently unique and fewer are available, they are considered to have a higher value than Limited Edition photographs.

Studio Proof Photographs

Art historians, curators, and collectors view working proofs as especially desirable because of their rarity, and the insight they may give into the progress of the work, and because they may well have belonged to the artist himself. These working proofs are so immaculate that they also become the standard by which all other images are compared to. Rodney calls these very scarce working proofs, “Studio Proofs” and on rare occasions he makes them available to the public. There are never more than five Studio Proofs total ever made available for an image.

Studio Proofs are limited to the standard sizing, including:

Standard format: 16x20, 20x24, 30x40, 40x50, 50x62.
Standard Pano format: 10x24, 15x40, 25x66, 31x83, 45x120.
Tall Pano format: 12x20, 24x40, 42x70.
