From the photoshoots published on 100 NUDE Shoots, I have begun selecting a few of the best photographs to offer as numbered Limited Edition Fine Art Prints that you can now acquire. These are just a few of them, and I’ll add others little by little! You can read below to know more about the Prints and why I’ve decided to start selling them or go straight to my DeviantArt gallery to see the full selection of Prints*.

What are Limited Edition Fine Art Prints?
To be regarded as a work of art in the same way as an original painting or sculpture, a photograph — digital or analogical — must be reproduced according to the highest standards of quality, with the printed material accurately representing the original image and lasting for many decades without deterioration, loss of color or contrast. Even more importantly, the photograph can only be printed a predefined, limited number of times, after which no more copies will ever be reproduced, making each printed copy an exclusive piece. The number of copies in a given limited edition may vary according to various criteria. Usually, the smaller the number of copies, the more expensive each one may be, but that is completely relative to each artist’s choices.
For each photograph from 100 NUDE Shoots that I chose to offer as Limited Edition Fine Art Prints, no matter what size or material chosen for reproduction, only a fixed number of prints will ever be made, and only with high quality giclée printing process and materials, so that each Print retains its originality and value.
After all, why did you choose to sell your nude photos like this?
I receive a lot of feedback from people saying they’d love to own nude photography prints from photos of 100 NUDE Shoots. I believe that selling them in limited edition, high quality prints is an awesome way to: 1 – allow admirers, collectors and art buyers to acquire and own high quality physical copies of these photographs, finally taking my work beyond the simple viewing of low resolution images on the web; 2 – attribute real value to my work and the work of the amazing photographers I collaborate with; and 3 – help me finance the continuation of this work, since I spend a lot of time, effort and money with this project and I currently have no other source of income for it.
Ok, nice! But how much do they cost?
Considering these three fundamental motivators I mentioned above for this Project, but especially the first and second ones, I found out I wanted to go beyond the usual fine art pricing standards in two fundamental ways: a) by limiting the number of copies of each chosen photograph below the usual quantity and b) at the same time setting the price of each copy much lower than usual. This way I can allow you — and not just wealthy art collectors — access to owning the best photographs from the 100 shoots in high quality prints, still knowing each one is going to be a work of art exclusively owned by only a few people.
The bottom line: most of my prints are available in editions of only 5 copies starting around $100 and rarely priced above $200 for the largest size prints (unframed), with some exceptions I chose to make available in smaller sizes — and in higher quantities — to make them even more cost-accessible, starting at less than $50. For comparison: it’s fairly commonplace for photographers to sell series of 30 copies starting from $500 per copy in small sizes.
How the hell do you make them so cheap?
First of all, I don’t pretend to make a fortune, or even my living, out of selling these prints. The proceeds serve for reinvesting in the Project. But most important of all, I can make them cheap due to a simple, smart, but also tough choice: the photographs are printed abroad. The cost of printing these photographs in São Paulo is prohibitively high, even higher than the final price I charge for them! By outsourcing the printing abroad I guarantee a very high standard of quality and a much more reasonable price. Of course, there’s an unfortunate trade-off: the prints will take a long time to arrive at your hands after purchase, if you live outside the USA. But they say the wait makes the taste even better, right?
Ok, I think I might want one! How does it work?
- Click here to go to my DeviantArt gallery. That’s where you will find all of the photographs I currently have available as Limited Edition Fine Art Prints.
- Choose a photograph to see its description and the total and actual edition number.
- Then, choose between “Art Print” or “Canvas”, framed or unframed, and the print size.
- You’ll be invited to create an account on DeviantArt (just like with any other e-commerce site), choose shipping and payment options and confirm your purchase.
- You’ll get an email confirmation once your payment is processed and all you have to do now is go on with your life while my seven nude forest elves make your print and bring it singing to your door.
P.S.: Each Print takes only a few days to produce, but it may take from one week to more than a month to ship and deliver, depending on your delivery location and your chosen delivery option. I recommend choosing FedEx delivery if you want to be able to track your shipment; tracking may not be available for other options. Customs charges may also apply in your country if you live outside the USA.
P.S. 2: If you don’t have a credit card or PayPal, please contact me so that we can figure out together another payment option for you. If you live in Brazil, you can make a deposit and I can place the order for you, sign it when it arrives and arrange to deliver it to you here. Just get in touch.
Wait, did you say something about “Art Print or Canvas”?
Art Prints are giclée-printed on Premium Fine Art Paper. This means museum-grade, long-lasting printing quality. They deliver vivid color reproduction and exceptional detail on high-quality matte heavyweight cotton paper. They can be delivered rolled in a lightweight package, with a 1.5″ bright white border, ready for you to hang or to be framed; or already framed if you prefer (there are several framing options; note that shipping costs might go up for framed items).
Canvas Prints are the classic way to display fine art. The photos are printed on archival-quality textured canvas with a protective finish to prevent fading. They can be delivered rolled, with extra canvas on the edges to allow for your own framing choice; stretched and gallery-wrapped over a 1.75″ thick wooden frame, ready for immediate hanging; or framed in a floating wooden box frame.
If these Prints are real works of art, how do you ensure their authenticity?
I make sure the limited edition photographs from the Project are not publicly available in high-resolution. Thus, they cannot be printed in good quality elsewhere. Anyway, to ensure the authenticity of each work and avoid counterfeiting, since the photographs are printed abroad, as soon as you acquire your Print via DeviantArt I will personally produce, number and manually sign a special seal of authenticity and mail it to you separately. You can stick it to the back of your print/frame or just keep it safely stored with the Print.
That’s great then, thanks! But what if I want a photo from 100 NUDE Shoots that is NOT available on DeviantArt?
I try to select for my Limited Edition Fine Art Prints photographs of various styles, but always ones that I know will look really great when printed. But as long as the respective photographer has given me rights to do so, I may be able to sell you a fine art print of any other photograph publicly available on the project’s portfolio, only NOT as a limited edition, meaning that there’s no limit to how many times those photos may be printed. Still, it can be a great option for you to get a high quality print of that one photo you love the most. So, if you want a photograph that’s not available on DeviantArt, please contact me and I’ll give you print options and prices for it.
I’ll give it a thought, then! But if I can’t buy one right now, is there any other way I can contribute to the Project?
Of course! I appreciate so much every single referral, every share of my shoots on your social media! And even if you don’t acquire a print, you can also join the 100 NUDE Shoots family and contribute to my work via Patreon. Click here to watch my Patreon video and learn more about it!
Please have a look at the 100 NUDE Shoots Print Gallery and choose one for yourself — or as an amazing present to a loved one. Let’s live from Art, watch and breathe Art!
