"capturing the beauty of nature through light and time"
- Welcome to JTBaskinphotography!!!
I am a 31 year old photographer currently living in Fresno, CA. I have a love of light, a passion for photography, and an obsession with the outdoors. I have taken a few photography and dark room classes through the years, but am basically self taught. I have always possessed a love for the art, a thirst to keep learning, and desire to capture the beauty of my surroundings in images. When I was a child and people would ask what I wanted to be when I grew up my response was always "a National Geographic Photographer." While I haven't got that call from Nat. Geo, I have been able to fine tune my skill, travel to some of the coolest places on Earth, and learn a few things along my way. As I continue to grow, improve, and progress as a photographer I hope to be able to share the beauty and wonder of our natural world with as many people as possible. I encourage everyone that visits to please "comment" in my guestbook below, I welcome all feedback or suggestions. And if you would like to receive show schedules and offers via email please leave your email address as well (not to worry - your email address will kept private). You can also follow me on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/jtbaskinphoto to keep up with my latest shots and adventures!
All of my prints are printed on the very best quality papers and mediums. They are printed by one of California's most recognized print labs, ensuring the most vibrant, detailed, and consistent prints available. With proper care any of my prints will last a lifetime with out fading or deteriorating. One of our most popular mediums are "MetalPrints™." MetalPrints™ represent a new art medium for preserving photos by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets. Because the image is infused into the surface and not on it, your images will take on an almost magical luminescence. You've never seen a more brilliant and impressive print! Colors are vibrant and the luminescence is breathtaking. Detail and resolution are unsurpassed. To compliment this modern form of printing, MetalPrints™ come with a "float" hangers so that they literally float about an inch off of your wall, making these unique prints beautiful, clean, and crisp displays on anyone's walls. They can even be wiped clean with just some water and a paper towel! Unfortunately, at this time, only Metal Prints are available for purchase directly through my website. These prints will be fulfilled and shipped directly through the print lab and therefore will not be signed. Customers are welcomed to send me their order via email to ensure that I get to sign each piece. As with all of my prints, MetalPrints™ can be special ordered in almost any size. Please email me via the link below with any questions or for quotes and for ordering paper prints, custom sizes or other mediums.
