My work on your walls deserves nothing less than these stunning products

Acrylic Prints let your room’s natural light bring out the rich color and intricate detail of the image. A giclée print is face-mounted to a crystal clear acrylic substrate. This process maximizes image clarity and crispness, resulting in an overall effect that’s vivid and modern. All acrylic prints receive polished edges, and can be either floated on a recessed mounting bracket or finished with aluminum stand-offs.

Metal Prints infuse dye directly onto high-quality aluminum sheets, letting your image radiate with luminous color and depth. Crisp edges and gently rounded corners display a clean, contemporary style.

Bamboo is a completely recyclable substrate. Used in combination with our archival water-based inks, we can produce a 100% green fine art product. Bamboo provides a subtle but distinctive texture and warmth to the image. As with all fine art prints, your image is printed with archival quality water-based inks. The bamboo is treated with a proprietary receiving layer to further ensure that vibrancy and color do not fade with time.

Every canvas is hand stretched on a custom built frame, printed with ink rated to last 100 years, and spray sealed with a UV inhibitor coat.

My professional lab produces your print with incredible precision on the finest archival-quality photographic paper. Every image is thoroughly inspected by a trained technician. Your print is guaranteed to last a lifetime without fading or cracking. Optionally you can add a finishing touch with a frame and matting.

What others say about my photography

  • Wilko could not have done a more perfect job of capturing the awe-inspiring beauty of Western Canada. We often get so caught up in our daily lives that we don’t take the time to appreciate the beauty that surrounds us. Thankfully, Wilko has a special eye for capturing this world as he sees it. He is one of the best contemporary photographers.

  • You have captured my soul.

  • There is something very timeless about any picture you take.

    — L.E. —
  • You’re very personable and made out photo shoot a comfortable experience.

Nice to meet you!

I’m Wilko – a self taught, professional photographer and photographic artist. I’ve been capturing this wonderful planet and it’s beautiful inhabitants for more than half my life now. I’m based out of Calgary, Canada: in a way the Rocky Mountains are my home, and rest of the world my “office”. I fell in love with the exceptional things I saw and the remarkable people who crossed my path. My photographic art is my way of giving some of my travel memories back to the world.

“I fell in love with the exceptional things I saw and the remarkable people who crossed my path.”

My inspiration comes from traveling all over the world.
