90cm framed print

The parcel was delivered very well packaged. It was a present to ourselves to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary and looks great on the wall in the living room. We can see why you chose 'The Retreat' for the cover of your book.



120cm Aluminium Print

Finally we got to hang the piece on the wall and it looks magnificent! Both of us were really nicely surprised by the quality and how light it is given the size! We are very happy with the purchase and contemplating on ordering another piece or two. We are also delighted with the book, it brings a lot of memories to our family from the visits to Lake District and definitely makes us think to go back again. My partner commented it was the best birthday gift and was retracing his childhood paths.

In total we have now 2 of your pieces from John Lewis (framed) and the panorama directly from you, and I must admit the aluminium just looks the best out of those. Maybe it is my personal preference, but I really like the fact it is non reflecting and light.

Looking forward to see more pieces of your work.
Good luck and thank you.

We loved the print we bought from you and have had it framed ready for pride of place in our lounge.

The service we received was excellent and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone.

Thanks again

Kind regards



90cm Print in a Black Frame

My nephew is abosolutely delighted with his print of The Retreat which I gave his for his birthday. He does quite a bit of walking and fell running in the Lake District.

The print arrived with my son on Thursday without any problems. He is delighted with it and is just debating whereabouts to hang it in his flat. Thanks for arranging for the print to be re-sent. I'm looking forward to seeing it myself when I next visit him.



90cm Oak Framed Print

Thank you so much for the very lovely photographic print of The Retreat.
For some time I have had it in my mind to buy and I am so glad I did.

There is something very compelling and satisfying about this view. It has everything,
all the elements - rocky earth, cloudy skies, dappled sun and a glimpse of a high-up lake,
plus a hard-to-describe soulfulness.

In addition, this was a great service with speedy delivery, a well-packaged parcel
and friendly contact all along the way.

Thank you again. I will be back for more and, in the meanwhile, I will certainly derive
much enjoyment from this inspirational view.

Very Best Wishes



30x90cm print in an Oak Frame

We love your photograph. It arrived very promptly and was very well packaged. The oak frame is great and it was easy to hang.
I bought this as an engagement present for my partner as we both love the Lake District and he was delighted with it.



90cm Print

I bought the print as a present for a friend. To say that the print was lovely would be an understatement, it is fabulous.

As regards your service I was surprised but delighted that the print arrived so quickly. So 10 out of 10 all round.

Many thanks,



30x90cm print

Your print arrived today, it's lovely thank you very much. I'm just looking for a frame and then I'll tweet you a picture.
Thanks again I'd forgotten how lovely the image was in the flesh.



90cm Print

Just love my print and your service was brilliant. Fell in love with this photo after seeing it at John Lewis, imagine my distress when it was out of stock when I was ready to buy! I'm renown for taking ages to make up my mind! I have taken it to a local framers and am having it double mounted in grey and stone with a reasonably chunky black frame should be stunning.



60cm Panorama

Packaged arrived but I am not allowed to see it!!!!! Although when I came in from work my wife had opened it and checked it where it will eventually be placed and she has a massive grin so and have been assured it it already a MASSIVE HIT!!!
I'm now not allowed to ask about it due to it being a present!!!
So looking forward to Christmas Day!!!
