Aaron Reed Limited Edition Fine Art Printing
Welcome to my website and thank you for your interest in my work! The details below will educate you on everything you need to know about my art, the prints and the process from beginning to end when purchasing fine art photography of mine through this website. If I have not answered your question below, please feel free to reach out to me personally at any time via email or telephone. I enjoy speaking with potential collectors of my work and I am happy to help in any way that I can.
I offer my entire body of work through this website, in sizes ranging from 16x24 (60cm) all the way to 56x84 (215cm). Many select pieces can be created as larger pieces up to 60x120 (305cm). Each of my Lumachrome TruLife Acrylic or Fujiflex Super-Gloss Acrylic Prints are finished using a "float Mount" system, creating a ready to hang work of art that does not require exterior framing of any kind. This not only relieves you of the need to pay for expensive external framing, but also creates a visually clean and crisp display that looks striking in any home or business environment.
My Lumachrome TruLife Acrylic prints are also available externally framed, using the most exquisite Italian frames produced in the world today. Shipping is included at no additional cost anywhere in the US for pieces 72" and under.
Pieces larger than 72" and deliveries outside of the US (including Canada) require additional shipping costs. To receive a shipping estimate please provide details about your order and your address via email. Expedited shipping may be available for time sensitive orders.
For those looking for more information about interior design, how to illuminate your artwork, or the health and wellness benefits of displaying art in your home, you can find all that and more in my luxury fine art blog.
Lumachrome & FujiFlex Trulife® Acrylic Fine Art
The most luxurious gallery quality pieces that I offer are Trulife® Acrylic Fine Art prints, produced with Lumachrome, FujiFlex and Metallic True Photographic Papers. These gallery quality Fine Art Prints are unmatched in handcrafted artistry and visual excellence. Each photographic print is incapsulated between a crystal clear acrylic base layer and museum grade Trulife® acrylic glass. TruLife® is a crystal clear, scratch resistant and non-reflective acrylic glass that allows exacting detail and vibrancy to shine through without distraction. This masterly crafted work of art is now thoroughly isolated from all elemental damage.This mounted fine art print is then finished with a recessed float mount on the reverse, creating a ready to hang piece of unrivaled quality and exquisite beauty. Each piece is crafted by hand, inspected and polished leaving a lasting brilliance and shine with no detail overlooked.
This process offers a clean, gallery-quality presentation and modern look that will dramatically enhance any private home or business facility.Fine Art prints produced this way show incredible visual depth and an almost 3d quality full of high definition details, beautiful tonal transitions and incredibly vibrant colors. Light that falls across and reflects off of the face of artwork is visually "trapped" within the acrylic glass and when properly lit, appears to be illuminated or back-lit. Lumachrome, FujiFlex & Metallic TruLife Acrylic prints have a silver, almost pearl-like luminescence that adds to the overall luxury feel of these incredible pieces. As various qualities of changing light fall across the walls of your home, the luminescence of the art changes as well, bringing the work to life before your very eyes.TruLife® Acrylic Prints are backed by a lifetime guarantee.
The Value Of Real World Experience
As one of the most widely collected Fine Art Nature Photographers in the world today, I offer an added benefit to my clients that can only be obtained by real world experience. I have produced and inspected by hand every image you see on this website, in print, on a wide variety of the worlds top photographic papers. Because of this experience, I am able to select the one that best visually represents the artwork that you choose.In recent years there have been a growing number of photographers who unfortunately have chosen to copy my methods and in some cases the design of my website and language I use to describe my work. Make no mistake, while many do have beautiful work, they simply do not have the experience and knowledge needed to consistently produce high quality fine art or the luxury of viewing what they are offering in person on a large scale.

This moulding is available in 2", 3" and 4" widths, each with a height of 2" and a rabbet height of 3/4". This moulding is truly some of the world's very best Italian made moulding. The pricing I am able to offer is far below the retail prices you would pay at a local frame shop where an inferior frame alone can far exceed $3000 when assembled.

My Roma Moulding frames are available in eight styles with your choice of four linen liner colors. In addition, I am now offering a brand new light aluminum scoop from Omega Moulding.
FujiFlex SuperGloss Acrylic Fine Art Prints
FujiFlex Super-Gloss Acrylic Prints have a reduced investment cost when compared to my TruLife® Acrylic pieces. FujiFlex Super-Gloss is a fine art photographic paper with a white polyester base providing unmatched levels of surface gloss, sharpness and color depth. Produced by Fujifilm, this incredible silver halide photographic paper creates a visual depth and clarity that is particularly beautiful with rich, saturated imagery. My FujiFlex Acrylic Prints are face-mounted to .08" acrylic glass before being back-mounted to a second sheet of acrylic glass or an aluminum substrate called DiBond. TruLife® acrylic is not used with these pieces. Visual image quality is equal, with a notable cost reduction due to the standard acrylic glass vs the TruLife acrylic being used.

FlexBlocks are 12", 18" or 24" Square Acrylic Fuji Crystal Archive Prints, produced using the same photographic paper as my Gallery Standard Series Fine Art Prints, with a lightweight float mount hanging system. These affordable, lightweight and easy to hang Acrylic Fine Art Prints can be rotated through the seasons or anytime you are looking to switch up the decor in your space and can be easily mixed and matched to transform small or odd shaped spaces.

ChromaLuxe is an aluminum substrate with a very fine multiple layer polymer finish that contains a specialized, formulated coating providing the foundation for a visually stunning and durable fine art print. Essentially a thin sheet of aluminum, ChromaLuxe prints are also surprisingly light with durability unmatched in fine art printing. ChromaLuxe prints are produced using a technology called sublimation, where inks are infused directly into specially coated metal sheets, creating images with stunning color, vibrancy and resolution. ChromaLuxe panels are scratch, fade, water and flame resistant. Requiring nothing more than simple glass cleaner, they are effortless to clean as well. My ChromaLuxe Fine Art Prints are available in sizes up to 72" wide.
Fuji Crystal Archive Pearl Fine Art Prints
Fujicolor Crystal Archive Digital Pearl Paper marks a new era in the printing of high quality glossy digital images. Pearl-like crystals give silver halide color prints a specific luster, creating a distinctive pearl-like appearance, sure to capture viewer attention! Produced by Fujifilm, this incredible silver halide photographic paper creates a visual depth and clarity that is particularly beautiful with rich, saturated imagery. The Fuji Pearl Fine Art photographic prints that I produce are dry mounted to 2mm Styrene, a super smooth plastic mounting substrate that resists warping, making it an excellent choice for providing rigidity to prints that will be framed. These prints are only available is sizes up to 36" wide.

Each piece from my collections is signed and numbered digitally prior to purchase. A signed and numbered Certificate of Authenticity is also provided and often shipped separately from the print itself. This digital signature process ensures the longevity of the provenance in connection with these beautiful works of art.
About Artist Proof's - AP
In addition to my Limited Edition pieces that are held to 50, 100 or 200 total pieces respectfully, I also offer 1 Artist Proof (AP) of each piece. All Artist Proofs are printed as Lumachrome Face Mounted Acrylic Prints at 45", 60" or 72". Each of these Artist Proofs are signed and numbered with A/P #1 of 1. A hand written letter from the artist is also included describing special details and thoughts from the artist. Only 1 Artist Proof of each image will ever be printed, increasing their value and rarity. Each of these pieces is an investment and will increase in value at a higher rate than pieces from the body of the collection itself. Each Artist Proof requires an investment of $7500 regardless of print size.
About First Printing - FP
When I designate one of my pieces as a Limited Edition piece, I choose the total number of prints to be offered in the collection. I withhold the First Printing (FP) of each piece in the collection to keep for myself, or to be offered as the very last print sold of that Limited Edition. The First Printings are also printed using Lumachrome TruLife Acrylic with Museum Grade acrylic backing and are ready to hang. These pieces are signed FP 1/50, FP 1/100 or FP 1/200 depending on the piece. Hand selected pieces are chosen based on overall popularity and can now be purchased in advance of the selection selling out.
As with Artist Proofs, First Printing’s also carry a higher value and will increase in value at a faster rate than pieces from the body of the collection itself. First Printing pieces require an investment of $2000 above the standard pricing for ChromaLuxe or $2500 above the standard pricing for Lumachrome HD prints. To be sure that your selected piece is available, please contact me directly to receive an invoice for purchase. Artist Proofs and First Printings can both be personalized, making these an incredible opportunity to purchase as a gift for a loved one or business partner.
