If you wish to download high-resolution photographic JPEGs (3-18MB) from this website, then please e-mail me in the first instance at simon@simonbourne.co.uk

 

I will let you know what size of image that I have and then once I have received an on-line bank payment from you, I will e-mail the relevant high-resolution JPEG back to you.  Older images tend to be closer to 3MB, whereas newer ones are closer to 12-18MB.

 

Rather than send you prints, I suggest that you use your own high street print or photographic shop to get the size of print or canvas that you wish from my JPEG.  You can then choose your own mounting or frame at any suitable outlet.

 

Alternatively, you can purchase images from my portfolio page at the stock photo agency, Alamy (Simon Bourne at alamy.com).

 

I've printed quite a few large images recently using White Wall - check them out on-line.  I used their Kodak professional paper with a UV film lamination on an Aluminium Dibond backing, which gives a very slender, 3mm thick frame that can be beautifully mounted straight on to any wall.  They're exhibition quality and are therefore quite expensive, at around £200 for an A1/A0 size - but they look stunning.  Recent images printed at this size (60cm by 90cm to 80cm by 120cm) from my 36 megapixel D810 are absolutely flawless, even though they are only printed at 150-200ppi.

 

Determining the most appropriate size for you depends on the number of pixels and the quality required, but it's easier here to talk about file sizes, as the file size in MB for a typical print is approximately half the number of megapixels.  For a canvas, you will need a print quality of 100-150ppi, whilst for a very good print you will need 150-200ppi, and for an excellent print around 200-250/300ppi.  So, on that basis:

 

a.       For a 3MB JPEG, the maximum size for an excellent print is likely to be around 20cm by 30cm (about A4), or around 30cm by 45cm (about A3) for a very good print and around 40cm by 60cm (about A2) for a canvas.

 

b.       For a 6MB JPEG, the maximum size for an excellent print is likely to be around 30cm by 45cm (about A3), or around 40cm by 60cm (about A2) for a very good print and around 60cm by 90cm (about A1) for a canvas.

 

c.       For a 12MB JPEG, the maximum size for an excellent print is likely to be around 40cm by 60cm (about A2), or around 60cm by 90cm (about A1) for a very good print and around 80cm by 120cm (about A0) for a canvas.

 

d.       For an 18MB JPEG, the maximum size for an excellent print is likely to be around 60cm by 90cm (about A1), or around 70cm by 105cm (between A1 and A0) for a very good print and at least 80cm by 120cm (about A0) for a canvas.

 

Generally, all my photographs are sold as Rights Managed, as opposed to Royalty Free, and on that basis the prices are then as follows:

 

1.         For a single JPEG for sole, personal use, the price is £25 for a small file and £50 for a large file.  (Copyright of the image remains mine).

 

2.         For a single JPEG for minor commercial use (for internal purposes only, for example), the price is £50 for a small file and £100 for a large file.  (Copyright of the image remains mine and you may use the JPEG once - you must also credit me (photo by Simon Bourne) in any publication or any on-line location).

 

3.         For any major commercial uses (for advertising, for example), please contact me directly, where a Rights Managed fee, dependent on location, medium and time, will generally range from £200-1,000 per JPEG.  (Copyright of the image remains mine - where possible, you must also credit me (photo by Simon Bourne) in any use).

 

(A small file will be less than 6MB and be suitable to print to an excellent quality (as noted above) at around A4/A3, whereas a large file will be more than 6MB and be suitable to print at around A2/A1/A0).

 

Generally, all my photographs do not need any Property or Model Releases, as they are all usually taken of public places from public land.  I carefully remove all traces of trademarks and people.   Anyway, all photographs are sold on the basis that I have not supplied any Property or Model Releases.  As with any photograph bought from a stock agency, it is the sole responsibility of the purchaser/user of the image to check whether any releases, or any other kinds of approval, are needed.
