Fine Arts Photography is an expensive undertaking. Steven works with over $25,000 worth
of the best equipment in the industry to make this happen. While working in often hostile
weather and altitudes is beautiful to look at, gear does wear and requires maintenance, repair,
and replacement. The mammoth size of many of the large format print files produced require
state of the art professional computer displays, color calibrations gear, not to mention
the high costs of operating and maintaining an in-house
Professional Large Format Fine Arts Printing operation.
Your artist is working in at times extreme temperatures and terrains that can be at times dangerous.
The physical and mental demands of producing the prints seen at StevenGalleries.com
also are factored into pricing of the prints, Lastly, your artist is often out the door at 3am to capture
the majestic sunrises in these rustic locations.
Your artist is gaining national recognition in Fine Arts Photography work and preparing for several
gallery displays in the coming 2 years in the Greater Denver Arts Districts. High value and high demand
prints will be offered on a limited basis and retired on dates selected by your artist and
his gallery advisors.
The amount of educational costs for a degreed fine artist and a certified professional photographer
are quite high. Your artist has three degrees and numerous professional certifications in both the
creative and technical arenas of his crafts. Steven also maintains active professional affiliations
with PPA (Professional Photographers of America) and PPC (Professional Photographers of Colorado),
along with attending workshops and print competitions regularly. These costs and
the associated market value are factored into the cost of goods sold.
