Size Guide

Photographing the incredible patterns of ice from above on Lake Baikal in Russia was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that left an indelible mark on my memory and my photography portfolio. The vastness of Lake Baikal, the world's deepest and oldest freshwater lake, spread out beneath me as I hovered in a small aircraft, my camera poised and ready to capture the breathtaking beauty that had formed on its frozen surface.

Lake Baikal in winter is a mesmerizing world of ice and snow, and on that day, it revealed an extraordinary canvas of intricate patterns. The lake's crystal-clear waters had frozen into a vast expanse of ice, etched with mesmerizing designs that seemed to stretch to the horizon.

As I looked down from above, the sheer scale of Lake Baikal's frozen surface was awe-inspiring. The ice appeared like a mosaic of delicate lace, creating patterns that ranged from simple cracks to elaborate swirls and spirals. The depth of the ice added an element of mystique, as if I were peering into an icy abyss that held untold secrets.

I couldn't help but be captivated by the play of light on the ice. The winter sun, casting long shadows, accentuated the intricate textures and patterns, revealing the lake's frozen beauty in all its glory. The hues of blue and white danced across the icy canvas, creating a mesmerizing visual symphony.

With my camera in hand, I carefully framed my shots, focusing on the details and textures that the ice offered. The patterns seemed to change with every passing moment, as if the lake was an artist continually at work, creating new designs. It was a challenge to capture the fleeting beauty of the ice, but it was a challenge I embraced with enthusiasm.

As the aircraft glided above the lake, I continued to photograph, each click of the shutter immortalizing the frozen wonder of Lake Baikal. The closer I looked, the more I marveled at the exquisite details, each pattern unique and intricate, like a work of art painted by nature's hand.

Time seemed to stand still as I lost myself in the act of photography, my heart brimming with gratitude for the opportunity to capture this breathtaking scene from above. Lake Baikal's icy patterns became a meditation in beauty, a reminder of the wonders that the natural world could create.

As the flight came to an end, I couldn't help but reflect on the profound experience I had just had. Photographing the incredible patterns of ice on Lake Baikal had been a journey into a frozen wonderland, an exploration of the lake's artistic expressions in the most extraordinary of mediums. The photographs I had taken that day would forever serve as a testament to the splendor of Lake Baikal in winter, a place where the beauty of the natural world knows no bounds.

    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

    If you're after more information on choosing the right artwork for your home, see our Artwork Buying Guide below.

    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.
