Buying From Beautiful Beacons
All the photos on this website are available to buy. Prices and options can be found on the individual photo pages. Prices are the same across the board, for example, the cost of a 24x30cm framed photo is the same for every single photo.
How Does It Work?
Whichever Photorapher's photo you buy, it is Dan who will prepare and dispatch it to you. Dan prints the photos on his own professional, high-end photo printer, except for large panoramas and canvases which are printed by a professional large format printing company in south Wales. Depending on the format purchased, Dan will mount, frame or stretch the photo using his own equipment and stock. This means you can mix and match photos from different Photographers whilst keeping the same consistent mount colour and frame style. It also means you can be sure of the utmost quality that previous customers of Dan's have become accustomed to.
What Can I Buy?
For further information and photos of what the mounts, frames and canvases look like, see the individual photo pages and click on the 'more information' link.
Traditional Prints: Prints can be mounted or framed. High quality photographic matt paper and ink are used and, when behind glass, the print is expected to last in excess of 100 years. Archival quality ph neutral mount boards are used and the photo is attached with an acid-free t-hinge to ensure the paper can respond to atmospheric changes. The Photographer's name is written lightly in pencil on the bottom right of the mount where it would normally be signed (except for Dan's own photos which will be signed as usual).
Canvas Prints: These are printed on extremely high quality canvas which is hard wearing and comes with a lifetime guarantee. They are water resistant, stain resistant and will not crack on the corners or edges.
