Prints for framing

I use a local printing company that specialises in making high-quality prints. Please let me know:

  • the size of print you prefer (standard is 8x10", large is 12x15"),

Digital copies for commercial projects

You'll have seen Gwulo's photos around Hong Kong already, as they've been used in advertisements, books, exhibitions, interior design for offices and restaurants, etc. Please let me know which photographs you're interested in and how you plan to use them in your project, and I'll let you know how I can help.
