Afternoon Storm - Wolwedans, Namibia

Size Guide


The relentless sun bore down on the vast, unyielding expanse of the Namib Desert as I embarked on a thrilling photographic adventure. The desert, with its endless dunes and scorching sands, held a magnetic allure, and I was on a quest to capture the untamed beauty of an afternoon storm. My name may not be famous in the world of photography, but my passion and thirst for adventure fueled my determination.

My journey to this remote corner of Namibia had been an arduous one. I had endured the unforgiving desert terrain, the searing heat, and the profound isolation that only the desert can provide. But the promise of witnessing and documenting a powerful desert storm was my driving force.

Setting up camp in the shadow of a colossal dune, I meticulously arranged my camera equipment. Everything had to be perfect; there was no room for error. My camera was mounted on a sturdy tripod, and my eyes remained locked on the ever-changing horizon.

As the afternoon sun made its gradual descent, I noticed a subtle shift in the atmosphere. The temperature dropped, and a light breeze stirred the sands, carrying the faint scent of rain. I adjusted my camera settings, prepared to capture the storm as it unfolded.

The first raindrops fell, a gentle and refreshing touch on the parched desert floor. My heart quickened with excitement as I pressed the shutter button, capturing the initial raindrops as they graced the thirsty earth.

The storm continued to intensify, darkening the sky with swirling clouds. Lightning streaked across the horizon, casting an ethereal glow over the dunes. Each flash of light beckoned me to capture the electrifying beauty of the desert storm. The thunder rumbled, echoing through the dunes like a giant's heartbeat, and the rain cascaded down in torrents.

I was drenched, my camera exposed to the elements, but I was undeterred. I couldn't tear my gaze away from the mesmerizing spectacle unfolding before me. The desert, once harsh and lifeless, had transformed into a canvas of movement and emotion. It was both humbling and exhilarating.

Hours passed, and the storm began to relent. The clouds parted, and the sun emerged, casting its golden light on the rain-soaked dunes. I continued to click my camera, each photograph documenting the desert's rebirth.

Exhausted but filled with a sense of accomplishment, I packed up my gear. I had ventured deep into the heart of the Namib Desert, enduring its challenges, patiently waiting for the perfect moment, and reaping the rewards of my dedication. I left with a collection of photographs that would forever preserve the breathtaking beauty of that unforgettable afternoon storm in the Namib Desert. It was a testament to my adventurous spirit and my unwavering commitment to the art of photography, a memory that would remain etched in my heart and my work for years to come.

    To be honest, we prefer to ship artwork to you as a finished, ready-to-hang artwork (of course, rolled prints work best when ordering from outside Australia). We believe in quality, finished artwork delivered directly to your door and ready-to-hang. That's service. No more finding a framer, wondering if you’re paying too much, painfully choosing from myriad of frame options then waiting weeks for the job to be done. We use only the best quality materials to ensure your artwork will look amazing and last forever!


    We love our Framed Prints. Our stunning Deep Shadow Box Frames (with that sexy spacer between the frame and the print) are just to die for (Frame Measurements - 30mm wide by 40mm deep). The spacer allows the print to sit back from the glass, ensuring it doesn't touch and ruin your print. Offering the best in contemporary framing, your framed print will look AMAZING on your wall. Your print is printed on archival quality papers with archival inks, ensuring your print won’t fade or wrinkle. Your Tom Putt Print comes digitally signed and a small title is added to the left hand corner.

    The sizes on the website are for the OVERALL print size - which includes the frame and the digital matt (a white border is added to the print rather than a traditional matt board). We STRONGLY recommend that your artwork be supplied with special non-reflective ArtGlass or 99% UV Museum Glass which means that you can see the beautiful artwork, not the distracting reflection from normal glass. Choose from either the Raw Oak, White or Black finish to suit the style of your home. 

    * Raw Oak framing suits homes with wooden floor boards and Scandinavian style of furniture.

    * White framing suits Hamptons style of design, giving that light, beach feel.

    * Black framing suits a darken print and black and white images

    Forget what you know about canvas prints. Ours are COMPLETELY different.  We source our canvas from the best in the world. It is a 100% seeded, cotton canvas - the best quality canvas you can buy. What does this mean for you? It won't fade, wrinkle, or look horrible in years to come. In fact our canvas has a 75 year guarantee!

    Your Canvas Artwork is finished with a stunning Deep Shadow Box Frame in Raw Oak, White or Black (Frame Measurements - 10mm wide by 55mm deep).

    Canvas suits a home where you're looking for that painterly feel to the artwork. The texture in the canvas gives the impression that it is a painting rather than a stunning photograph.

    Canvas also works well to absorb any light opposite the canvas. So if you have windows opposite your artwork, order the canvas so you don't get any reflections.

    What is an Acrylic Print? Think the look of glass but it's not. It looks INCREDIBLE but it's not as heavy or dangerous as glass. It is the same look as many splash backs in kitchens. Your print is between two pieces of acrylic (approx. 5mm thick). The artwork is then hung on the wall using a baton system. Many of our buyers like this finish as it sits close to the wall. This finish suits any modern, light-filled home. Our Acrylic Prints are sure to create that WOW factor.

    What the heck is a Metal Print? I know, I thought the same! A Metal Print is a photographic print heat-adhered to a thin piece of aluminium, approximately 2mm thick. This keeps the print extremely flat. The print is coated with a high gloss vanish to protect it from dust, moisture, finger prints, etc. Your Metal Print has incredible impact and comes finished with a Deep Shadow Box Frame in Raw Oak, White or Black (Frame Measurements - 10mm wide by 55mm deep). This finish suits art that has punchy colours that you want to highlight in a room that has minimal reflections.

    Sometimes the simple things in life are often the best. A rolled print is ready for you to do with it what you want. All our rolled prints come with a white border to help it frame superbly. That means that you don't need to pay extra for matting when framing it. The white border is approx. 70mm wide on each side for artwork under 100cms (longest edge) and 90mm for artwork over 100cms. This white border is included in the total size of the print.
