Papers and Printing
I use a professional Fuji photo lab which allows me personal supervision of the printing process to make sure I get just what I want. (Cheap printing can be very disappointing and ruin an image.) The papers used are lustre or glossy and the Fuji process provides a stable, long-lasting image.

Special Occasions. CD Only Package – £400
Increasingly some are keen to have the whole story of a special occasion such as a Silver Wedding captured on camera and to have all the resulting manipulated images on a CD (Easily over 100 images) so they can be viewed as a “slide show” and to make their own prints. If you would like this option I charge the occasion organiser £400 inclusive of the session fee and provide 8 copies of the CD and 2 copies of small index prints.
Terms of Business.
Session fee on booking. Print or CD payment with order.
Cash or cheques made out to J.J. Baxter please.
Canvas Wrap prints look extremely good where a large picture is appropriate.
I extend the print design so the composition is not spoilt by wrapping – as is often done.
The image is then printed on heavyweight artists’ canvas and stretched
over a wooden frame. The result is to give the image a clean, modern, slightly
textured look. This fits in well with rooms with contemporary décor.
These prints do not need glass or a frame, but if one is required the cost of framing will be added.
A3 print 18” x 12” £110
A2 print 24” x 18” £160 Other sizes individually priced.
My images have been caught in a moment of time, yet each shot has been carefully lit, posed, framed, composed and then exposed. After that the image is examined meticulously, cropping and composition fine tuned, colour and contrast, sharpness and softness explored, sometimes changed radically, sometimes modified subtly. Attention is paid to skin. Blemishes are removed and lines smoothed so the focus can be on character, beauty, mood, emotion.
Only then is the image ready for viewing and careful printing.
