Great places to buy photo prints and other gifts
It is not hard to find photography art outlets online. Posters, prints, canvases etc are available from many sources - but what are the best?
Well, there's no denying that Allposters is a great store. The prices, the range of images, the product and printing options, the shipping times and the simplicity of the website, have all made it consistently the best place to buy photo prints online.
I would also recommend any lovers of photography to explore the Magnum website. It is full of some of the most powerful and iconic images taken over the last 60 years, which are available by order as giclee photo prints. Why not also check out the P-A-C galleries with images by Josh Austin - all images are available for purchase.
Allposters.com - a wide selection of photography
AllPosters.com offer the largest collection of photography on the internet. You can order the images from their galleries as prints, framed prints or canvases. They use fine art quality materials and processes.
To be honest, you probably know everything about Allposters already; they are so big and so good, dominating the world of popular art online. You'll find photography in all styles, on all subjects by countless great photographers.
They also have some very cool galleries featuring collections from well known publications. Buy photo prints of images from LIFE magazine, Natural Geographic and Lonely Planet - well worth checking out even if you're not looking to purchase.
I've often been able to pick up a cheap photo print from Allposters too - they have some great bargains - so have a search around.
Magnum Photos - the work of great photographers since 1947
Magnum is the best photography agency in the world. Founded in 1947, it is a co-operative owned by the photographers who represent it.
So many famous and amazing photos can be found in the Magnum galleries, from the work of founder Henri Cartier-Bresson to present day legend Steve McCurry. Giclee photo prints Prints and coffee table photo books are available.
Needless to say, Magnum honour the quality of their images with the standard of their printing. They are based in New York, London, Paris and Tokyo - so you can easily buy photo prints from wherever you are.
Photography Art Cafe Galleries - reproductions of Images by Josh Austin
Yep, a bit of a come-down from the last suggestion! But sometimes it's nice to find photos to buy online from the portfolios of photographers dotted around the web. Most of my photographs feature UK landscapes and there are colour and black and white galleries.
You can order giclee photo prints, canvases, greetings cards and postcards. Fine art materials and methods are used for all prints and canvases. Payments are made through PayPal.
Here are some ideas for framing / storing your photography art...
Albums, Frames and Digital Frames from Amazon
The Homeware and Furnishings store at Amazon provides hundreds of different picture frames in a wide range of sizes, styles, materials and colours. As always, there are descriptions, reviews and the occasional second hand bargain to be hand.
You can also buy photo albums online from the same section of Amazon. They have a range of really nice leather and linen bound photo albums, which make brilliant photo gifts.
Digital photo picture frames are becoming more and more popular. I've got one at home and really like the fact that you can show pictures on a continual rotation so never get bored of the same one!
