Peter Lik photography and the Lik style of photo prints
Peter Lik is a well known personality in the world of fine art landscape photography. Lik's personality may even be more well known than his photography due to his brash, bold, outgoing Aussie personality. Of course, like many artists, Lik's art does mimic his personality. Much of Lik's work is hallmarked by bright, bold colors in the wide panoramic format.
Peter Lik photography and the not so secret style of backlight photo prints
People often wonder how he achieves fine art landscape photography prints that are so bold and bright that they appear to be backlit. The process to achieve this backlit look is called Face Mounted Acrylic Prints with high gloss papers mounted on a rigid surface covered with one or more acrylic sheets. Face Mounted Acrylics are not a secret process with unique materials as propertied by several photographers trying to make themselves special with their marketing. The process makes a very attractive presentation with bright colors, as in the popular Japanese Maples found in the Pacific Northwest and other red-colored scenes. The process is explained here on my page, where I discuss the type of presentation offered at Jess Lee Photography. But the truth is that the face mounted acrylic print that has been referred to as the Peter Lik Style is truly an exceptional way to present fine art photography and is offered by many photo printing labs worldwide to all photographers.
