I am very happy to announce that I have become an Ilford Master and an ambassador to their great line of inkjet media. It is a great honor to be included among the Ilford Masters alongside such legends of the photography world as Sebastião Salgado, Eric Meola and Gregory Heisler.
Over the last few years, I have tested out dozens and dozens of baryta and fine art papers that I use to print on in my office, both for test prints, my portfolios and for prints that I offer my clients. No other papers have impressed me as much as the Ilford line of papers. Ilford Gold Fibre Silk is by far the best Baryta-type paper I have ever printed on. It gives my images the impact I meant for them to have when I shot them, especially when printed large, and the color gamut of this paper is truly phenomenal. One of my other favorites, for those times when I want the fine art feel of a matte paper surface, is Ilford Gold Cotton Textured. It has a rich feel and a mysterious luminance that makes images glow as if lit from behind.
