The photographs you see below are part of a larger project. That project is taking the form of a book, If I May Have Whidbey. The last image in the gallery, the ferry shot, is the book’s cover. As of right now there are 27 images in the book. (Important caveat: the book is proving to be a hugely expensive project, so it’s hard to say when it might appear.)
I’m making a selection of these (square format) photographs available for sale as individual Giclée (zhee-KLAY) prints. These are pigment-based archival prints made on gorgeous paper—and best of all—are made right here on the island. The paper size is 16 x 20 – the image is centered on the paper and is sized approx. 12 x 12 inches. Each photograph is signed. I use both an iPhone (XS) and a digital camera (Fuji XT-3) for those interested. I absolutely love this island and find myself besotted by the wonder that is the Heggenes Valley. I woke up one day and saw I’d amassed a slew of pictures and so here we are.
For the holidays
This is meant as a holiday season gift idea with a specific timeline. If you would like to buy a print I am hoping you can do it by Nov. 10. I will be traveling abroad over the winter and would love to complete your order before then. (You can order a print after Nov. 10, but you may have to wait for me to get back to receive it.)
So how much?
I have priced each print at $175.00. I’m calling this a Heggenes Valley ‘friends & neighbors’ discount. (After the holiday season, prices will change.) The instructions below are for online purchasing. But you’re also free to send me an email at Richard.Pelletier@gmail.com. If you’d like to call or text me at 503.621.2215, that’s fine, too.
To make an online purchase
First, take a tour through the gallery below. (Click on any image for an enlarged view.) When you find something you’d like to order, please click on purchase a print. That will take you to the store. You’ll then see the image you like (among others) and you can select it. Once you select it, it’s in your shopping cart. And then it’s a matter of providing your billing details.
At this particular time, I’m only offering unframed prints. Matted and framed prints will be available in the not too distant future. Watch this space.
Unframed print: $175.00 (+ sales tax) Shipping tubes are available.
PS. Below the gallery, I’ve included a photograph of what a finished print looks like.
