Frequently Asked Questions

All information given to www.jeffreyrbrosbe.com or Beyond Words Fine Art Photography will be used solely to transact the business the patron has initiated or to inform about events connected to my art such as upcoming exhibitions, when an image has reached the last 2 of its series, when a new image has been added to a gallery, awards received, and the like.

The term "limited edition" refers to how many prints of an image are created. It is indicated as a fraction with the individual number of a print on top (numerator) the total number of prints to be made of that image on the bottom (denominator). So "1/10" indicates that this print is the first of the edition which is limited to 10 prints. Aside from an artist’s proof (marked AP/  ) no additional copies of an image will ever be created.

When the edition limit has been reached, the negative is scratched or, in the case of a digital image, the file deleted.

Some artists refer to an edition number as the number printed in that size; thus, they may have editions of 20 (for example) of 16x20 prints, and 20 of 24x36 prints, and so on. I do not do that. My edition size refers to the total number of prints that will ever be created, and that number is not influenced by the size of the print or if the print is made on paper, canvas, metal, or any other surface.

Each print is hand signed and numbered and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity which is also hand signed.

Some people would reply with Rhett Butler’s exit line in the film Gone with the Wind.

Others might prefer to know that the image they have will never be "a dime a dozen" Ikea or Wal-Mart print.

And some recognize that fine art can be an investment.

I have never had an image that had been hanging in someone’s home or office for a month returned.

I have had a patron request a larger sized print of an image, twice.

In any case, if there is any problem, you would only have to contact me for complete resolution, even if that meant returning your money in full, once the undamaged print was returned.

Occasionally I have had patrons host a private showing in their homes or at an office where my work is displayed. For these occasions I bring selected work from my portfolio to display. These occasions have been arranged solely to show off a patron’s collection or an interior designer’s work, or to earn the host a "commission" which would apply towards a future purchase.

Just ask me via the "contact" and I shall give you an immediate reply.

Just go to the "contact" page of this site and send me your email address.

You may either give a specific image and have it delivered to you or give me the instructions as to whom, when, and where to deliver it.

You may give a gift certificate allowing the recipient(s) to choose an image.

If you give an ordinary gift, it will be appreciated as long as it lasts and whenever it is used; but giving one of my images reminds the recipient(s) of you each time it is seen.

Nothing says class and caring like a gift of original art.

Yes.  Just contact me via the "contact" page and we will make arrangements suitable to your needs.

Yes, unless the image is represented by a gallery.  In that case you would purchase from that gallery, and may negotiate with them.  The prices listed on my site for represented work reflect those in galleries representing it.

If you are ordering several images for an office, or from a series to form a cohesive display in your living room, for example, definitely.

If you are a licensed interior designer, you can expect a professional discount on your order of several images.  Contact me to discuss how I may help you exceed your client’s expectations.

Sizes of specific prints may be slightly different depending upon method of creation (source medium format, digital, 35 mm film, etc.) and processing factors.

I will always accept payment based upon the size you select to order, even if the final print is larger.

May I order one of your images on metal or another surface other than paper or canvas?

Yes.  Just contact me via the "contact" page and we will make arrangements suitable to your needs.

According to "Masters of Photography", archival refers to the way a negative or photographic print is processed - usually meaning that the negative and print have been washed long enough to eliminate chemicals which could later cause discoloration or other types of degradation, and that a print is additionally made on a fiber-based paper. Also refers to materials used for matting, storing, and protecting photographic prints and negatives from the deterioration caused by chemical reactions.
