FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS about Graham Coleman and his photography
The painted terraces of Clifton Wood, Bristol
Could you tell me about the photographer?
Graham now in his mid forties, has four teenage children. He studied photography at Filton College and City of Bristol College after a career in quality control in the printing industry. He has since become a qualified member of the British Institute of Professional Photography and The Royal Photographic Society. He has lived in the Southwest/ Bristol area all of his life and has always had a keen interest in the countryside/ landscape and photography/ art. Graham is a keen hill walker and has climbed many mountains in England & Wales as well as abroad. Graham has been in business as a photographer since 2003 and for years operated mostly as a wedding and portrait photographer. But landscape photography has always been a passion and these days, allthough he does still undertakes wedding and portrait work, Landscape is increasingly his area of specialisation...
What Equipment was used? Is it digital or real photography? Have the pictures been Photoshopped.
Mostly Canon cameras, usually with a tripod and grey grad filter. Just about all digital, which these days, is superior to film in virtually every way, except terms of nostalgia and level of skill required! (The photo-industry hasn''t converted to digital for fun!). Most of the pictures have undergone some editing, always with the intention to make them look more natural/beautiful.

So I can order any picture from the website?
Just about! The restrictions are:
If you order an image that is unavailable, we will offer our closest alternatives.
How long will my order take?
We aim to get Mounted prints and standard Framed Photographs despatched with 14 days. Canvas wraps, Bespoke Framing, 3D decoupage, Acrylic panels etc, may take a little longer, but we wil keep you posted of progress if an order is going to take more than 2 weeks.
Special case deadlines: If your order is very urgent, please contact us before placing the order, so we can advise on the possibilities.
Can I collect?
Not without prior agreement (and only under very special circumstances!) Because we are an On-line Gallery and are based in a small residential street and we do not have the facilities or staff to deal with regular customer collection.
Can I have my picture sent overseas? I live outside of UK - in USA/ Europe/ Australia/ (etc) can I order some pictures?
Yes, See the ‘Overseas Orders’ category at the bottom of the SHOP ON-LINE page.
We only supply loose prints (scrolled) to overseas addresses. We have come to the conclusion that it is simply not worth the risk of damage or costs in delivery for us to deliver framed or mounted prints to outside of UK. We supply loose prints so that overseas clients may have the pictures framed locally.
Can you tell me more about the Limited Edition Pictures?
There are two collections of Limited Edition pictures at the present:
‘Series A’ & ‘Series B’
Series A pictures are available as enlargements at following two sizes: 8”x12” full-frame or 12”x18” full-frame, and will only be reproduced up to 48 copies in each size giving a total of 96 copies in all.
Series B pictures are available as enlargements at various suitable sizes but will only be reproduced up to 120 times in all
All the Limited Edition images will be allocated a unique print number in form of 2/48 where 2 is the copy and 48 is the run size.
All Limited edition images have or may be reproduced as small prints (greeting cards, postcards etc) with out restriction. Limited edition images will not be licensed for ‘use of image’ (for commercial purposes) but may be used at any size by the photographer to promote his work.
Images taken at the same time and of the same view may be use and sold freely, if they are deemed, by the photographer to be different enough from the Limited Edition to be recognisable as a separate photograph.
Each Limited Edition print is signed by the photographer and will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
Can I use images for my website/ to promote my business/ for Commercial or Editorial purposes?
Yes, except the Limited Edition Images. All other pictures on the website are available for ‘Use of Image’ licensing (and we have a large stock of images that are not on the website yet, so it’s always worth asking if you have a specific view or location in mind or want to use an image similar to one of the Limited Editions.) We will retain copyright, but offer you a license to use the image for a set purpose/size/duration. Please contact us with details of the intended usage and we will be happy to advise on price/terms.
How can I contact the photographer?

Could you tell me where a particular picture was taken?
Yes, we''d love to. Please get in touch...
How do I get the Monthly Calendar Screensaver?
The best way is to email us, and request to be put on our monthly screensaver list. We will then email a free calendar screensaver at the start of each month, unless you ask us to stop! You can also download screen savers from the ‘screensavers’ page, scroll down to see the latest image!
How do get off the Monthly Screensaver list?
Please email us if you don’t want to receive the free calendar screensaver anymore.
Is this all the pictures there are?
No, we have large stock of digital landscape images, and will be putting more onto the website as matter of course. The Photographer is also continually adding more landscapes to the stock collections, and this year we’ve gained collections of Italy, Snowdonia, Dorset and the Cotswolds. Some of these, hopefully will be online in the not too distant future... (So if you’re after a particular view or type of view for commercial or Editorial use, it’s definitely worth asking!)
When were the pictures taken?
Most of the pictures have been taken in the last 3 years, just about all have been taken since the start of 2006, (since we were using transparency film for landscape before that time!) Regarding the time of day: often the landscapes are shot, in the evening or morning when the light is usually warmest and the low angle of the sun gives better shadows...
