How to choose your wall art: 

First, select whether you’d like a fine art paper print or canvas and the appropriate size. Please check sizes carefully before ordering.

All our prints are printed using the Giclée method on a premium quality heavyweight fine art print material that has a smooth, clean finish. We chose this option rather than photo paper, as this museum-quality paper is extremely consistent and will give you a beautiful print that will last a lifetime. 

Once you’ve made your selection, you will need to decide whether you’d like it framed or unframed. 

Framed prints

Our framed prints come with a white mount and your choice of black, white or natural wood frames. We use classic box frames for our framed prints. The frame has a box profile measuring 20mm (front face) by 33mm (depth from wall). Each print comes with a white mount and is placed under a durable Perspex glaze.

Please note: the size listed refers to the size of the glaze and does not include the width of the frame. If you choose 30cmx40cm, this is the size of the glaze and not the image. The image will be smaller to fit inside the mount. 

Framed canvas

Our framed canvases use ‘floating’ frames, with the frame sitting approximately 5mm from the edge of the canvas helping to create a floating border.

Thomas Vijayan: Catch me if you can

Leopards are good at climbing trees. They basically do this to hoard their kill from the scavengers and other predators that might come and steal their precious catch. They have amazingly strong necks and shoulders, which make them capable enough to carry their prey (often much heavier than their own body weight) to the tall branches. A leopard’s tree climbing skills also helps it to escape from its predators and at the same time it can pounce down on its prey. It uses its tail to balance and to make it easier to climb, it makes the first jump to climb with its tail up and then pushes the tail down to get the upward movement. This particular shot was taken at midday by placing the camera under the tree. This leopard had stored its food on this tree, so I was sure it would come back soon to eat it. To get this picture, I placed the camera below the tree. It was so challenging, as issues like dry leaf falling over the lens or rain or the leopard opting to climb from the opposite side would pop up each time. After so many failed attempts, I finally got this unique angle.
