Purchase: How It Works
All orders are done by hand between myself the client. We discuss the setting for which the print will be displayed and the appropriate sizing for your wall. Next we will discuss the medium best suited for that setting that fits your budget.
You will receive an electronic invoice to start the process that includes the full price of the print plus shipping from Longmont, Colorado. Prints under 60" will be shipped FedEx standard with prints exceeding 60" will ship FedEx Freight. Final prices are all inclusive and prints can be any size.
Keep in mind, I do not crop images. Most of my prints are custom sizes.
Pricing: Starting at $500
All of my prints are offered with the professional print mounting known as Duraplaq. Images are professionally mounted on an acid-free 3/8” thick wood surface, finished with a beveled edge. The print is then coated on both sides with a moisture resistant process that prevents warping and discoloration over time. This minimizes reflections typical with glass framing and makes it fingerprint and UV resistant. After mounting the print is beveled 1” at the edge of the print to enhance the image that utilizes a french cleat mounting system. An advantage to using this mounting system is the multitude of durable surface finishes offered to enhance artwork for any display or setting.
Photographic Prints - these are true photographic prints. Larger prints are dry mounted to prevent rippling after framing. Custom framing is also available.
Gallery Wrap Canvas - Image is printed on a lightly textured canvas. The image wraps around all sides and mounted on a wood frame. These are typically not framed.
Metal Float Print - Image is printed a sheet of aluminum and has a high gloss appearance.
Acrylic Mounts- Using exclusive high grade acrylic, PlexiPlaqs are a resoundingly unique way to present work with superior clarity and durability. Using only the highest quality, museum-grade acrylic on the market, our face-mounted acrylic plaque is a show-stopping display option for prints.

"Alpine Photography helped our family envision and create an original photo that best fit our newly purchased mountain home!! Markus went above and beyond to make sure every detail, from the shoot to hanging the piece on our wall, as a wonderful experience!! I would not hesitate to commission Markus for your first or next original photo for your home environment." -Scott Pankow
"Markus has absolutely beautiful photographs and he was really easy and professional to work with. We're so happy with the print and highly recommend!" -Francesca Heintz
"I’m proud to have Markus Van Meter’s incredible artwork at both my Colorado and Phoenix properties. Markus has a gift “behind the lense” and always captures the stunning beauty of the Colorado mountains we are privileged to call home. "-Chris Hayton
"While searching for photos of Colorado mines, I stumbled across Markus Van Meter’s site. I was so taken by the sheer beauty of his pictures that I contacted him asking about mine photos, especially Yankee Girl mine. Mark responded with several photos of Yankee Girl, one in particular that is spectacular. So, we talked through the size I would require for a very tall wall, the type of mounting, shipping, etc. I was pleasantly surprised by how helpful Mark was through this process and appreciative that the price of the mounted picture was so reasonable. I just received the picture and it is, of course, even more striking in person. I’ll have it mounted on the wall next week and can hardly wait. Should you be looking for pictures by an outstanding photographer, you should touch base with Mark. You will not regret your decision." -A. Staggs Houston, Texas
