These photo prints are printed onto archival quality photo papers to exacting standards to provide a quality print to be proud of. Excellent tonal quality and colour range delivers the perfect print for you to display. The prints are produced with a silky lustre finish, ideal for displaying behind glass or acrylic. These prints (with the exception of Poster Prints - see below) are produced with a thin white border of between 3mm and 8 mm all round the image to ease mounting and framing and are open editions.
Poster prints are printed onto this paper. The size shown, i.e. 60cm x 50cm is the size of the overall poster, which is printed with the description and photographer's name as shown on each poster. The size is designed to fit ready to fit into readily available frames of the same size.

Fine Art Print
This is a traditional term which heralds from the origins of photography, where photographic negatives were developed and printed individually by hand. All our prints are printed individually and are personally inspected and tonally balanced to produce a superb quality print. These fine art prints are produced onto one of the finest Hahnemühle Fine Art Photo Rag Premium artist matte paper to ensure luminous colours and deep blacks for at least 100 years. These prints are produced with a 1cm or 2cm white border to ease mounting and framing. On request, these pictures can be signed by Ian Badley in the border and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity
Exclusive Collection Signed Limited Edition Prints
Limited edition prints are exclusive fine art prints, selected by Ian which typify the essence of the moment of capture. As is usually the case, it’s all about the light, the action or serenity and that unique moment. The number of these prints available is strictly limited to just 10, plus 2 artist proof prints for each medium type and size of print. As the print edition nears the end of the run, prices rise due to their exclusivity. Once the edition has reached its limit, no further prints are made. These prints are available in two mediums, a traditional Lambda printed Fuji Crystal print or Hahnemühle photographic fine art print as described above. Each print is numbered with the edition, signed by Ian Badley in the border and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity which includes the original file number, the date and time to the second that the image was taken, together with details of the location and if applicable, the boat name and event.
Print under acrylic glass
Here is a modern contemporary way to display your print. Your chosen print will be printed onto Fuji Crystal DP11 paper, silicone sealed behind a 2mm brilliant acrylic glass and bonded to an aluminium backing with an integrated hanging system. The acrylic glass provides added UV protection as well as providing a wonderful presentation to your chosen print.
How good is the image quality?
It’s good! The images are taken with high quality equipment and all prints are examined before despatch. Remember, I supply businesses, book publishers, magazines, newspapers etc with my images but above all that I have my reputation to consider. If I am not satisfied then it doesn’t go out – although I am human!
Please note that with the best will in the world, the image you see on your computer screen will never look exactly like the print you receive even though calibrated monitors and paper profiles are used to edit, process and produce the prints. This is due to a number of factors one of the main ones being your monitor is back lit whilst a print is front lit; monitors perform differently in different lighting etc. Despite this, we aim to produce an image as close to resembling what you see as possible.
