Photography & Gallery FAQs

What is a Limited Edition Print?
The limited edition series of prints at the Louisa Gould Gallery are popular images. We release only a certain amount each year. We print only the amount indicated. The size does not affect the numbering. Limited edition prints range in image size from 8x12 to 30x40. Please note that it is the image size noted next to the images in the image gallery not the framed size. For example some of the images in the gallery are only 5 that means we only print 5 of this particular image. As a result, the image price is more than say an edition of 250. If the edition number is 250, only 250 prints will be made. 250 is the standard limited edition number, if no other is indicated. After the image reaches #5 or #250, we no longer make that image in the limited edition series. There is only one of every number between 1 and 250. Each print is signed and numbered by Louisa herself.

Why is there different pricing for prints?
There is different pricing for different limited edition numbers. Please see above for information on limited edition prints. Please inquire about pricing for different sizes for edition numbers other than 250. For example all the images in the Exotic Destinations Show have edition sizes other than 250, and therefore are priced differently. If you would like an image in another size, please contact us.

Please also note that pricing for wedding prints, assignment work and stock images vary from the limited edition prints. Please contact us for these price structures.

How can I order nautical prints from a sailing event, recent magazine or newspaper?
