Metal Prints Are Now Available!

Just in time for thee Holiday gift giving season, prints on metal are now available to order through my Scott Shots Photography website  Unlike canvas prints that are printed by me personally, metal prints are printed by a third party lab and shipped directly from the lab to you.

Two types of metal prints are available.  These prints are not signed or numbered on the print, however they are part of the limited edition prints.

"Metal Print: Photographic" prints are the higher end, better quality print. Not to be confused with the less expensive "Metal Prints" that print directly to aluminum, this is a real chromagenic latent image print behind a carefully sourced rare ultra-glossy UV lam and mounted on thicker, stiffer aluminum sheets. The level of detail in this print is so superior to infused / dye sublimation, you’ll never look back. This print offers all the amazing attributes of acrylic prints – sharpness, contrast, details, etc – but it’s lighter, less expensive, and the thinner profile is easily framed or looks great on its own. Standard sizes are available through the shopping cart, custom sizes are available, please contact me for a price quote.

"Metal Prints" - are the less expensive option and are infused directly onto a solid sheet of aluminum. Your choice of finish will add incredible color saturation and contrast to your metal print. The glossy finish gives your print a glass-like sheen, while the matte finish reduces glare. Each metal print comes ready-to-hang. Standard sizes are available through the shopping cart, custom sizes are not available.

Print prices can be found by clicking on an image in the website, then clicking "add to cart". Here is a a screenshot of part of the price list. 

Many new images have also been added to the website. All of my latest images can be found in my recent works gallery:

So if you are looking for the perfect Lake Tahoe themed gift this holiday season, please consider buying a print from my website. As a bonus, I am offering a 15% discount on Lake Tahoe prints! Offer available through "Small Business Saturday" 11-24-2018. Use coupon code: PRINT at or mention this ad at the @Vista Gallery in Kings Beach.

Thank you!

Scary Photo Adventure At The Old Abandoned Train Tunnels

Join me on my latest photo adventure where I have to walk through scary old abandoned train tunnels in order to get to a beautiful sunset scene above Donner Lake in Truckee, California.
A few days ago, the day after Halloween, I felt like scaring myself so I headed to one of the creepiest places in the area. The old abandoned train tunnels always make the hair on the back of my neck stand up, yesterday did not disappoint. I was also not disappointed by the incredible sunset we ended up having. A little bit of smoke in the air enhanced the sunset colors and I ended up with three "keeper" photos that can be seen in the video.

Thank you for watching!
