Size Guide


Lying some 70kms to the south of Kununurra in the The Kimberley, Western Australia, Ragged Range remains rarely photographed. Not visible from the main road that leads to the more famous Bungle Bungles, Ragged Range is one of the most spectacular afternoon landscape shoots I’ve had the privilege to photograph.

I first saw the Range back in 2007 while travelling through the Kimberley with my dad. Due to vehicle problems, we left from Kununurra to Broome late in the day and stopped off the road in the late afternoon. With the sun setting crimson red on the range in the distance, I was intrigued as to what this little known place was and how I could get access to it.

It wasn’t for another five years that I would return, driving up and down the main road looking for an access point and asking all the local roadhouses about Ragged Range. None had heard of it, so I took a chance along a dirt road only to find it very hairy to navigate due to recent rain. With the road incredibly slippery and boggy, I got stuck several times before finding my way down the The Range. With it now late afternoon, I climbed a nearby peak, wishing only to be higher up but running out of daylight hours. I photographed from where I was, wishing that I’d had more time however needing to press on to catch a flight out of Broome in the coming days.

I lamented the lost opportunity, hoping for just a few more hours to find the vantage point I needed. Arriving home, I did my research and figured I could get on top of the range to shoot side on to the massive escarpment.

Back 12 months later, I travelled down the same road in the early morning, giving myself plenty of time to explore the route up the escarpment. Setting off with a heavy 30kgs pack laden with camera equipment, a sleeping bag and tent, food and six litres of water to combat the oppressive heat and humidity, I set off across the countryside. Walking across the rocky plains, I was worried about snakes, thinking this would be prime snake country. Watching every foot plant, I prepared myself for any encounter. Reaching the escarpment I climbed my way up the steep slopes, sweat dripping from me and my breath heavy with a cold and cough I just couldn’t shake from the week before. Not being able to see the access point from below, I climbed and climbed only to find out the escarpment had a 8-10m high cliff with no way of climbing higher.

Time to go for Plan B – Make my way back down and try another ‘finger’ – an escarpment further along towards the range. Not ideal being closer but better than nothing. Walking up a dry creek bed with large rocks all around, I stumbled to the next escarpment and upwards towards a smaller cliff wall that I thought I may be able to negotiate. Alas it wasn’t to be as the cliff provided too tall yet again. Time for Plan C – walk to the north and photograph looking south. I hadn’t researched this possibility however I still had time in the day despite already going through half my water.

Reaching the third escarpment I could see access almost all the way to the top and I was hopeful that it would give me the higher vantage point I needed - Although there was always doubt in my mind that my efforts would be thwarted again. I figured if that was to be, I would abandon my trip for now and have to come back another year.

Yet another brutal climb and more energy expended, I made the top after numerous scrambles and slips on the rocky slopes, cutting my hands on the spiky grass I desperately grabbed hold of to get up safely. Reaching the final cliff, I dropped my pack and looked for an access point. Seeing the sun to the north I was hopeful that the cliff was not too high and I would find I way.


A relatively easy climb through the rocks had me at the top and I walked a short distance along the finger to the highest point, looking north and south along the range. The view was better than I expected, giving me not one but two shots with the sun setting to the west.

With the sun setting I shot with multiple cameras over the course of an hour, before the light fading and I set up camp on the escarpment and rested for my journey back down the following day.

Sleeping on the rock with just my sleeping bag (and a 20m drop only a few metres either side of me...lucky I don’t sleep walk), I woke in the early hours of the morning to have the moon shining brightly through the gap in the range. It was a perfect ending to an odyssey that had consumed me for 12 months and a monkey I was glad to have off my back!

    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.
