Printing Information

Every print is meticulously inspected for color, light, and sharpness before it leaves our office. We want to ensure that every print is treated the same whether it is small or large. Below are the options of printing we have where you can get a better understanding of the product you are ordering. For frequently asked questions about shipping, head here.

 Please allow up to 7-10 days to prepare prints before shipment to your location. 

Chase Dekker's images can be printed on fine art paper



Fine Art Prints are made with high-quality archival inks on fine art papers using a high-resolution large format inkjet printer. We only use heavy and textured paper, that is built to withstand the test of time. Smaller print sizes are printed in-house while larger sizes are printed in collaboration with a local printer. Paper takes less time to produce, thus allowing it to go from the printer to your home in a quicker amount of time.


Additional Options with Fine Art Orders (both of these can be applied to canvas prints):


Mounting provides your print with a little added security as this thick and rigid board prevents your print from bending and marking. This is a highly recommended option when placing a fine art or loose canvas print in a frame.

Matting is the border that surrounds your print and helps pull the attention of the viewer towards the image. Matting will also help prevent your image from directly touching the glass or edges of a frame. A white matting will be used for every print order unless another color is requested.

Giclee Canvas Prints are a standard in the art industry and are widely embraced for their astonishing quality by major museums, galleries, publishers and artists. The latest inks offer more than 80 years light-fastness and UV-resistance under museum archival conditions. For even better performance, we coat all our canvas prints with a layer of anti-fading UV protective clear satin glaze. Below I go into detail about the two options when purchasing a canvas print to help you decide which is best for you.

Wrapped Canvas prints are ready to be hung the second they arrive as the print is molded around a wood frame. The canvas print shows texture, remarkable detail and brilliant color. The blacked-out edges wrapped around a wooden frame give the image depth and dimension. This versatile display option will compliment any space or décor.

Loose Canvas is printed on the same Giclee canvas that a wrapped print would be, but it is not pulled around a wood frame. These canvas prints are all printed with a 2 inch white frame to allow for proper matting, mounting, and framing (if you choose to do this on your own). All three of the additional options can be added on to your canvas print order. This option is best suited for those looking for an elegant way to hang their print.

Chase Dekker's photos can be printed on metal.


Metal prints represent a new art medium for preserving photos by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets. Your images will take on a magical luminescence. Colors are vibrant and the luminescence is breathtaking while detail and resolution are unsurpassed. To complement this unique printing method, we have developed a wide variety of creative and modern ways to hang and display your metal print. We finish off our metal prints with a satin finish to give it a smooth and soft appearance, with little to no glare.


Metal prints are shipped with a float mount attached to the back so the print is ready for immediate hanging. If interested in framing options for your metal print, please send us a message.

  • How do I use Zoom or Skype? Where do I get it?
    Both Zoom and Skype are free to download and run on a variety of OS versions (both Windows and Mac). It is very easy to install the client. Do this before our meeting. A short time before our session, I will email a meeting link to you. Click on the link and you’ll join right in.
  • Should I do an in-person or online photography lesson?
    I always like to talk with whomever wants a lesson in advance to make sure I understand everything possible about what it is you are looking to learn. During our emails or phone calls before the lesson, we will decide what is best for you!
  • Can I get in person coaching?
    Yes, certainly, provided you (and I!) are in the Monterey Bay, California area. This is a good option if you want advice on using your camera, reading a location and choosing a composition. I recommend at least a 2-hour block of time for an in person lesson. Lessons can be given in other locations, but additional fees apply for travel. Please inquire for more details!
  • What can we photograph in-person around Monterey Bay?
    Monterey Bay has a plethora of wildlife and shooting locations as its one of North America's top wildlife and nature photography destinations (one reason I live here!). We can photograph wildlife from otters, sea lions, birds, whales, bobcats, and more or focus on landscape photography around Big Sur or the rocky shoreline of the peninsula. If you choose you would like a lesson in nearby Yosemite, Point Reyes, or somewhere further, we can set that up too! Longer trips are usually done over 1-3 nights.
  • Do I need to use my entire lesson time in a single sitting?
    It depends on what you are looking to learn! Some subjects can be taught rather easily within 1-2 hours, but many students prefer to have ongoing lessons. Maybe you want to schedule 1 lesson every week or every month or maybe you want to start with an in-person lesson and then follow-up with an online lesson where to post process some of the photos we have taken. We can decide all of this as we go along as flexibility is key!
  • My schedule changed last minute. What do I do?
    Hey, life happens. Contact me and we'll work out a new schedule. If the worst happens and we can't reschedule, you'll get a full refund.
