Great alpine photography

We're after a reasonably large print (>1m or so) to go on a wall in the house and, having scoured the websites of a few names that sprung to mind, I thought I'd see what people here had to suggest - it seems that getting something we really like stylistically that also means something to us is harder than I imagined it would be!

Here are the few that I have had a look at so far:

  • Tairraz
  • Jonathan Griffith
  • Mario Colonel
  • Ben Tibbetts

As for what we're after, that's pretty difficult to spell out without listing off the mountains that mean a lot to us! So, I'm really asking for your best suggestions of great photographers of alpine peaks that also sell their works as prints. Those above are very Chamonix-centric, so if you know of any focussing on other areas (Ecrins/Bregaglia/Maritime Alps), even better - thanks!

Wait a good deal longer in time? The idea being to take your own photograph of good standard, which has a lot more meaning for you. Then get it printed professionally.

I had a black & white poster of the Dru from the Tairraz shop on a succession of walls for some 20 years. But it became very tatty after so many years of bluetac, in restrospect I should have had it mounted/framed & I'm occassionally tempted to buy another copy (if still on sale).

I remember seeing some good prints on sale in the Queyras but I'm not sure where, maybe here http://www.images-et-reves.fr/ ? I live in the Ecrins national park & the various 'maison de parc' often have exhibitions of photos & prints but those on the park's website are not very inspiring - https://boutique.ecrins-parcnational.fr/23-posters?id_category=23&n=24

Look on UKC

https://www.ukclimbing.com/photos//?nstart=0&sort=v&category=11

Ensure it is listed by votes and scroll for what you want.  Then contact the person and see if they will provide the file (perhaps for a fee) and then get it printed/framed yourself.

Photo Francou on the road north out of Briançon is worth checking out. It's a couple of years since I was in but he's still there and it's a great shop.

Have a look at the gallery of James Rushforth. Some wonderful Italian delights there.

Hi Tom

Try Rogier - http://rogiervanrijn.com/

Both local and good, also worth dropping them a line if you want a specific peak, as they know all the local gang.

Bradford Washburn and his aerial photos of the Matterhorn on a large plate camera. Stunning for the time!
