Isak Pretorius is an acclaimed wildlife and nature photographer whose fine art prints hang on the walls of private collectors to major corporate institutions. His photographic style of artistically capturing the essence of the natural world, free and wild without digital manipulations lends itself greatly to fine art prints. The prints can be done in various sizes and on various media surfaces to suit the look and feel that you desire.

The Isak Pretorius fine art prints are of the highest quality done by the leading photographic lab. He uses only the best quality acid-free fine art quality paper and canvas. In his opinion canvas works better for the big prints with an arty feel while the glossy paper works better if you want to see the finer detail. Both Canvas and the glossy paper are exceptional for black and white prints while the textured glossy paper is the popular glossy style prints that works well with vivid colored photographs. All of the premium papers and canvases are acid-free and, with proper care, will last for generations.

The texture and weight of this canvas brings fine art reproductions one step closer to the originals with a matte finish giving them a softness that invites attention. It lends a fine art feel to photographs.
I use Breathing Color Lyve Canvas, a high quality white canvas with a smooth woven surface. This canvas is ideal for the reproduction of photographic images and art work that requires high detail, whilst still retaining the qualities of a true canvas. The canvas is water resistant and is finished with a water based varnish to seal the surface and extend UV resistance.
