Make a Carmichael Print – Part of Your Life
Welcome, please browse our landscape portfolio below to purchase a large-size Carmichael high-resolution landscape image for your home or office wall space. These large prints can be thought of as spirit-lifting windows into nature. Each dramatic image was captured in the field with state-of-the-art Medium Format Hasselblad Velvia 50 film and Fujinon lenses. Previsualization and a desire to photograph magic hour light in pristine wilderness settings are at the heart of Carmichael’s attraction to landscape photography. Sometimes it’s serendipity, but planning and previsualization lead to a sublime location where the light is perfection. It is our hope that a Carmichael print will become part of your life.
Fine art landscape prints, classically captured on film with the Hasselblad H1 systems, are available in dramatic large sizes up to 50×60 inch prints and in panoramic sizes up to 100 inches and larger. Panoramic images are made by capturing two or more frames and stitching them into one perfectly registered photograph. The images depicted are relatively low resolution for convenient web viewing. The actual large digital files create very dramatic high-resolution archival Gloss or Super Gloss prints. Please find pricing and print papers below.

participation in nature and photography
Carmichael’s appreciation and love of the outdoors began in his early childhood on the shores of Long Island Sound. He is a life-long climber, having ascended El Capitan’s Triple direct early in 1973 and the Salathe Wall in 1974. In addition to high-level climbing, Carmichael’s other sports include skiing, scuba diving, cycling, cycling, hiking, and sailing. These adventures involved wonderful experiences in nature that inspired his drive to capture the majesty of light and form. Carmichael’s landscape work has been inspired by many, but Ansel Adams and Galen Rowell are his true heroes.
The landscape capture process is time-intensive and physical. And fun. Bottom line: it boils down to being there with an eye for composition and beauty. Often that requires camping out and pre-scouting and, of course, having the right equipment to capture the magnificence of nature in the highest resolution possible. This involves choices of cameras, lenses, and logistics. Carmichael landscapes are made through an analog process using 120 Velvia 50 film. He uses a classic H1 Hasselblad medium format film camera with a kit that includes top-of-the-line Fujinon 35mm, 50mm, 80mm 120mm, 150mm, and 300mm lenses equipped with a matt box for use with graduated ND filters. For light metering, he relies on a Sekonic incident and spot meter along with a grey card for exposures. His backpacks and roller packs are from Lowepro Packs. In addition, he uses either a Gitzo carbon fiber tripod along with a BOGEN 3046 PRO TRIPOD and Really Right Stuff BH-55 head and Nodal Point slide for panoramic stitching. The above banner Panoramic image of the 3rd Flatiron in Boulder took three months of daily observation and 18 trips to find the right light. The post-production process involves one of the best printing labs in California Bay Photo and PhotoCraft here in Boulder. The sum of which hopefully explains the cost of one print.
Carmichael has been nominated nine times for his work in Nature, Sports, and Wildlife photography by the International Color Awards, the leading photography award contest honoring excellence in color photography. We appreciate your interest and hope you will choose to make a Carmichael print part of your life.
