I received your print today and just want to say: WOW! Yes, it is breathtaking. I get some ooohs and ahhs from some of the work I print but your print was awesome.
Keep up the good work. Thanks for running the special to entice some of us to sample what is possible with current technology, skill, and a strong dedication to excellence.
From the matting to the packaging it was a first class job.

The Photograph
The 50th Alain Briot Print of the Month photograph is titled Totem Pole.

I had visited this location several times prior to creating this image.  However, each time the light was flat, the sky cloudless and I did not feel inspired to create a photograph. 

This particular time things were vastly different.  A sandstorm was blowing through the valley and storm clouds were moving rapidly in the sky.  When I arrived at the spot where I took this photograph, the light had taken a soft and almost golden quality, a consequence of the clouds acting as a giant diffuser for the sunlight and of the red sand flying in the air giving a warm color to the light.

Because I knew this location well, I was immediately able to recognize the uniqueness of this lighting situation.  I also knew that it would not last long.  The minute the clouds cleared up, or the minute the sand stopped blowing, this unique light would be gone.

I immediately set to work, inspired by the light, the cloud formations and the constantly changing patterns of light and shade that were cast on the sandstone spires in the distance.  Because I did not have much time to narrow down the exact final composition, I created images using several lenses, slightly varying how much of the landscape I was including in each image.  I also created images with different clouds and shadow patterns.  Later, in my studio, I selected the image above from all the ones I created that day because it best expressed how the scene felt to me when I experienced it.

The Print
This photograph is available framed and unframed. It is hand signed on the mat and the print. The frame is a handmade Mahogany Finish Frame. The moulding is truly magnificent and does emphasize the beauty of this image. The photograph I took of the moulding show very closely how beautiful this presentation is. However, these pieces looks much better in reality than a web photograph can show! You just won't believe your eyes when you receive yours. All the framing materials used are Museum Quality, archival supplies. All my work is guaranteed for life in regard to fading and damage caused by framing materials.

Framed pieces are delivered in a stunning mahogany finish frame.
