This image was taken in the beautiful northern prefecture of Aomori. If you drive about an hour and thirty minutes from the city of Hirosaki, you’ll find absolute serenity in the Oirase Gorge, with Choshio Falls as the main attraction. I was on trip with my family, so I woke up at 3:30am to enjoy the sunset at a nearby castle before jumping in my rental car and making the drive to take in the stunning beauty Aomori has to offer. Even though it was my first time in Aomori, had a strange feeling of nostalgia, as it resembles my hometown in Canada.
All standard prints will be on semi-gloss professional paper.
All fine art prints will be printed on CANSON Platine Fiber Rag 310gsm fine art paper - it’s a slightly heavier semi-gloss paper
There will be a limited number of fine art prints produced in each size:
A4: 20 (8.3x11.7)
A3: 20 (11.7x16.5)
A2: 15 (16.5x23.4)
A1: 10 (23.4x33.1)
The print will be slightly smaller than the listed sizes as about 20mm will be cut off the bottom. The finished product will appear as it does in the image, with a slightly wider border on the bottom, as this is a slightly more panoramic image.
If you would like a different paper, please end me an email, and I’ll see what I can do. However, keep in mind, each print has been processed to match the paper I have selected, so any other papers may have slightly different appearance, in terms of contrast or sharpness.
All Fine art prints will be signed and numbered. If you'd rather not have the signature or numbering, please let me know. Standard prints will be signed, but not numbered, as they are not limited editions.
Smaller images (A3 or smaller/ 8x10/11x14) will be wrapped in soft paper, placed in a sealed plastic cover, and placed in a study hard envelope. Additionally, , A3 prints and 11x14 prints will have an extra piece of cardboard placed in the envelope to prevent bending. For international shipping: These smaller size prints will be sent through a regular mailing system, to ensure the lowest possible prices. At this time EMS services are unavailable for these sizes.
Larger prints (A2 or larger/ 16x20) will be rolled and placed in a shipping tube purchased at JP Post. The prints will be wrapped in soft paper, however at this I'm unable to find plastic large enough to cover these prints. For international shipping: These large size prints will be sent using the EMS system in Japan, which means all shipments at this size will be tracked.
The photographer reserves the right to reproduce this image for use in greetings cards, calendars, books and for any other promotional purposes. Any reproductions made by anyone other than the photographer is forbidden.
At this time, refunds will only be offered to insured prints (currently only available in Japan) and prints sent via the EMS system.
