Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming
Black-billed magpies, common in the west are notoriously smart corvids that are challenging to photograph. Squawking, chattering, and omnivorous, often scavenging on road kill, magpies are great fun to observe. Surprisingly, while lying in the snow photographing next to renowned photographer/friend Tom Mangelsen, this magpie visited at arms length, moving snow around with his beak looking at us - I guess we were where he likes to hang out. A serendipitous moment in nature. Photo © copyright by Dave Showalter.
My archival prints are printed on professional paper that holds color and detail and looks great mounted. All prints are signed.
The Duraplaq Standard substrate is a 3/8" HDF board that is 100% recycled, environmentally friendly and is pre-laminated on both sides and finished with a "box" frame. The finished picture has a clean look and the matte laminate greatly reduces glare, allowing you to see the image. Duraplaq mounted prints can be cleaned with your normal glass cleaning products and are extremely durable.
I work to make the best possible custom prints. All of my print preparation is done in-house and I personally inspect every print before I sign and ship the prints. Your satisfaction is guaranteed.
