Water and Lifestyle Photography  

A life time of creating. 

A Collection to MN.

Its not all that often that I get to send out a collection of my work to places like MN. But this last month I got the opportunity to do so! 

Here is a cool collection of images I captured during travels and at home, from Vero Beach to Panama and Barbados. 

Take a look. 

These images are both captured in Vero Beach, Florida. Now sublimated onto Aluminum with a float mount they are ready to hang on a wall. The Aluminum Prints have a tendency to make the water look real, so gazing at these really puts you back in that moment. 

The Top image is "Light Filter" and is a Limited Edition Print #2/25. 

The Second image is "Touch Down" and is a Limited Edition Print #1/25 (#2 is currently hanging out as a 20x30 canvas in Vero Beach Yoga Barre

I'm particularly excited my client picked out this image. Shot in Panama and simply named "Panama Sunset". This was taken my first evening being there and its something I will never forget watching. 

"Panama Sunset" is a Limited Edition Print #1/10. The other 9 may go quick so don't hesitate putting this on your wall. 

Another look at the first two. 

"Rock of Confidence" as a negative before being heat pressed onto the Aluminum. This image was taken in Barbados last fall. 

My client is a stock trader, financial planner up in MN and he really liked the idea of putting this image into his office as a reminder of confidence and symbol of security, hence the name "Rock of Confidence"

It is now printed out as 40x60 on Aluminum and is a Limited Edition #1/10. 

... and here they are. 

If your living in as cold of a state as MN I'm sure it will be nice to look at your wall and feel the tropics in these images. 

Sorry for the glare, the Aluminum prints are very glossy and reflective. I love that about them, makes the colors and details POP. 

Its a lot of fun getting my work out to people for them to enjoy. 

If you've seen anything here that interests you please email me at natehphoto@gmail.com and I'll get back to you ASAP. 

With the holidays coming up its not a bad idea... :)

"Imagination" coming to life.

Hey Guys! 

I'm amped to showcase some images from a local shop/gallery her in Vero Beach that prints using sublimation on Aluminum! This shop is An Image Evolution and they are located on HWY 1 just north of downtown Vero Beach. 

I recently had my image "Imagination" put onto aluminum, during that time I took a few shots of co-owner, Jake Burns, who is the craftsman behind the prints. I'm most pleased to see the care and attention that Jake gives the work. 

Its always great to find a good printer, and these guys are among the best which is why I wanted to share this post. Check out the post, get inspired, and go get a print! 

Jake on the finishing touches for the floating frame backing which will be placed on the print. 

"Imagination" as a negative. Once placed on the print this will be reversed and in brilliant color. 

I've worked closely with every printer I have ever used, and Jake is at the top of my list for people I trust to complete a perfect job. He has a real sense of care and dedication when it comes to the final product. Here he is removing dust particles of of the Aluminum reducing the possibilities of spots in your print. 

Continuous inspection. 

The finished print on Aluminum. 

I choose metal because of the color and the durability. As seen here this print is fully submerged underwater, and this print now hangs in La Tabla Cafe where no one would ever know its been in a pool. The sublimation process makes way more sense than laying ink on material. Its more vibrant, perfect smooth texture in the print as if it was real life, and very weather/scratch resistant. 

As good as new. Water photography on water photography, I love it! 

Its really cool stuff, there's nothing like a print! I'll be posting about the Art Gallery that An Image Evolution is about to open. My work has been accepted and will be featured in the Gallery which is going to be a very exciting avenue for me. :) 

You can find this piece on the wall of La Tabla Cafe on Royal Palm Point in Vero Beach, no guarantees on how long it will be in there so go get yourself a delicious lunch and enjoy the art! 

You can also find this for sale right here on my website in my Shop Tab

Thank You for visiting and I hope you continue to enjoy all the fun Vero Beach has to offer!
