INFORMATION FOR COLLECTORS

Fine art limited edition photographs and their various finishing styles such as face-mounting Silver halide c print photographs by award winning landscape travel photographer Scott Reither.

COLLECTOR INFORMATION

"His photographs are remarkably beautiful. They hook you at first look. But it’s not just his eye and his way with a camera that inspired me – it’s his conviction and way with a message that broke through. Or better put – it’s the soul of his emotions that gets captured in the film. That alchemical mingling of truth and technology is mesmerizing."  -Barry Dumka

custom sizing and finishing

One of the positive aspects to working directly with the artist is that you can make custom size and finishing style requests.  Whether you want a custom fabricated metal frame to take a black and white photograph to another level, or want to make a huge statement piece that really stands out from the crowd - it's likely that it can be done.  Contact me with your requests and let's discuss it. 

One example of a custom-sized piece is a very large Under Paris made for exhibit at the Four Seasons.  It is three 70x35" panels that piece together to total 70x105".  It is finished Museum Style with a Non-Glare face - adding to the sense that you can step into the Metro.


finishing styles

First, the silver halide c-print photograph is face-mounted to 1/8” UV museum plexiglass (glossy or non-glare), and is backed with an archival metal backing that seals and protects the print.  From there, you can finish the face-mounted print with one of the styles below:

Museum Style is finished with a wood or metal inset frame attached to the back of the face-mounted and backed print.  The result is a piece that appears to float about an inch off the wall and appears frameless.

Museum with Wood Style is a custom stained and milled, hard rock maple wood frame designed and built specifically for your face-mounted print.

The above-center style has a black finish and measures 1 1/4” face and 2” deep beveled sides.  There is a small 3/4" gap between the image and the frame, so the face-mounted print floats in the frame.  This style is elegant and luxurious.

The above-right styles are 3/4" face with 2" deep flat sides, with the same 3/4" float.  This style is streamlined and modern.

With Wood Styles, you may choose from several different stains including: cherry/burgundy, walnut, and black.

All pieces hang by a French Cleat System for an optimal and positive connection to your wall.

Color pieces come with a glossy plexi finish and black & white images come with a non-glare plexi finish unless requested otherwise.  Non-glare plexi's max size is 48" on the short side.

All finished pieces are accompanied with a signed and numbered Certificate of Authenticity on verso.

I work with the top printer and fine art finishers in the country to produce the finest quality pieces.  If you have any questions or concerns not addressed here, please contact me.

hanging and caring for your finished piece

The piece will look great and can be enjoyed in normal ambient light, but if you achieve direct lighting onto the piece, you will be able to enjoy the full potential of this Silver Halide C-Print, the finest photographic print in the world.  Any light will work fine, although halogen lighting is recommended due to its clean, white light.

The glass is a UV museum quality plexiglass.  This is the right glass for this medium.  Because it is plexiglass, you must care for it properly.  Use only plexiglass cleaners and non-abrasive soft-cloths to clean when necessary.  In case the piece is scratched, the plexi can be polished out (for glossy pieces only - anti-reflective plexi can not be polished with the #2 or #3 product).  Novus makes both cleaners, polishes, and non-abrasive cloths and I recommend their product. 

The piece uses the french cleat hanging system.  Simply take the included wood or metal cleat attached to the back of the piece - figure out your measurements on the wall (remembering to measure down from the top of the piece to the cleat), use a level, and screw the board or metal cleat to the wall using sheet rock screws and getting at least 1 stud, high side up and out.  Now, your fine art piece will drop nicely into place and have a positive connection to the wall.

what collectors are saying

I ordered one of Scott’s beautiful pictures entitled, The Being Behind. It recently arrived and it is even more stunning than it looked online. I love the way it is framed. As is the case with all of Scott’s photographs, this image instills a “feeling” and you are immediately drawn into the scene. You can sense the power and intensity of the image as if you were there. I hope to add to this photograph with more of Scott’s images. Thank you, Scott!

I was originally introduced to Scott's work through a friend that had a few of his pieces. It was a moving experience. His work elicited an emotional response that I couldn't put into words. I found an immediate connection to his work. Since that introduction, I have acquired a number of Scott's works of art. They have simply brought my house to life! Every visitor I have comments on them, amazed by what they're seeing and his ability to create such works of art through the lens of a camera.

My husband and I have always been collectors of art and obtaining pieces from beautiful places we visit is our favorite.  I came home one day and my husband surprised me with Scott Reither's Contemplation hanging in the living room and it instantly became my favorite art piece.  After seeing Scott’s collection of images, I knew I had to have more.  A few years later, I now live and work in Southern Illinois.  When decorating my work office, I knew that it would not be complete without Scott's photography hanging on the wall. Before picking out a desk, shelving, or even a wall color, I acquired Fury. This has long been one of my favorites, a remarkable shot taken during the time we lived in La Jolla. It makes the room look and feel so serene. Everyone who walks into my office is just as in love with Fury as I am. I have recently added another work of Scott’s - Sun Fire, on the opposite wall as it complements Fury so well.  I am thrilled to consider myself a collector of Scott Reither. Getting lost in his work makes my long work days more enjoyable! Thank you Scott for your amazing photography, and making my home and office look that much more beautiful.

Both photographs arrived in perfect condition. We hung them last weekend and they look fantastic. Kudos to whoever packed them for shipping.  Best protection of all the pieces we have received over the years.  And the concerns I had about hanging with the metal cleat were for naught.  They went up easily.  Thanks again for everything, and letting us visit Maui (at least in our heads) every day.

My husband and I bought our first piece Structured from Scott on a trip to Maui last year.  We were so fortunate to have been able to be introduced to both he and his art at the Four Seasons Wailea.  It didn't take us long before we realized that we wanted to add a piece to our home.  We have placed the piece in a prominent location where we get to enjoy it on a daily basis.  We get nothing but compliments from our friends that visit as they too get to see it.  Scott was very easy to work with and even helped me decide what size would look best in my space once I had returned home.  We look forward to adding more of Scott's pieces to Structured and our home in the future.

I have obviously more than a few of your pieces and Way of the Stone with the Museum with Wood frame is my favorite. I have it displayed in my bedroom and a special light for it that I leave on all the time. So, in the middle of the night it shines and acts as a nightlight but also brings out the color in the piece, it really inspires me with the whole earth, space and time part of life. I actually have a piece of yours in almost every room in my house and often find myself stopping just to look and imagine being there, as you typically capture the essence of a place and the relationship that time and the right “exposure” has on being there. I feel that “outlook” and perspective relates to everything in life. Being somewhere at the right time, with the right attitude and having the right perspective brings a multitude of beautiful results. Both in terms of results and feelings, your pieces bring me inspiration and joy.

This is our favorite piece of artwork in our house and it is our centerpiece in our living room. We often sit and stare at it as it acts as a window to Hawaii. You can almost see the clouds floating through the sky and the tide rolling in on the beach. Any time we've had a stressful day we can sit and relax enjoying the Hawaiian scenery and almost feel like we're back in Hawaii on the beach. We'll definitely purchase another piece from Scott, and we are both following his work on his website and on Facebook and we're often recommending Scott's work to our friends.

I grew up surfing next to the Scripps Pier in La Jolla....rain, sun, big surf or glassy barrels - that is where I spent my childhood.  I also have competed in Kona and Maui in the triathlon World Championships....lots of blood, sweat, tears and elation has been spent on the Hawaiian Islands for me. Your photographs bring me back to places where I have been the most happy in my life.  I can sit and look at your work and it is like I am right there under the pier or sitting on the beach.  I can almost feel the warmth of the sun through your photographs. Now that I am living in NYC I love having your artwork in my home.  Your work has given me a sense of peacefulness and calm which is so rare to find in a city that never sleeps. Thank you for all of your beautiful photographs.  I always look forward to seeing your new work.

I have received the pictures and I love them! I really liked how well packaged they were too because they got here safely. Fog is my favorite and looks better than I imagined. The others look great too. Since the ones I purchased look so good in our office space, I am looking to purchase a few more of your work. I will be going through your website to review your photographs. Thanks again and I hope you are doing well in beautiful Maui!

I've been a long time admirer of Scott's talent and collector of his fine art. If someone were to ask me "Why do you collect his pieces?", my answer is simple, "Scott takes the kind of photographs that I envision in my mind, and shows me they exist in nature."

collector faq

Can I purchase an unfinished, unframed print?

Probably.  Contact me and let's discuss it.  I will likely ask you if you already have a framer/finisher lined up who is accustomed to working with this print type.  If so, then it should be no problem.  If not, then it may not be the best idea to purchase the print-only.  This print type is very sensitive and requires a specific mounting process and can easily be destroyed under the wrong care.  I can assist with various options - finding a framer/finisher that is accustomed to working with this print-type in your area, sending a face-mounted print directly to your framers for an outer moulding, etc.  There are options.  Let's chat.

Can you make an image into a different shape?  My favorite of yours is square, but I need a panoramic for above the bed.

Rarely does an image re-present in a different image-ratio and work well.  A square image can't simply become a 3-to-1 panoramic without the image getting totally cropped or stretched and warped, all of which will lead to poor results.  I use great care and mindfulness to choose the best shape for the composition of the photograph and much of the success of the imagery is based on its shape.  With that said, I have an archive of tens of thousands of images and often photograph a subject in varying ways and repeatedly.  If you resonate with what you're viewing in the portfolios, I likely have something in my archives that would work well for your specific needs.  Reach out and let's discuss it.

Can I purchase an image from you that is not in your portfolios?  I saw an image on your Instagram account that I am interested in.

Almost certainly.  Let me know which image and the desired size and finish and I'll get back to you with a price quote and we can go from there.
