We offer three finishes to customize your favorite wall-ready Kidston Photography piece:

GLOSS – By far our most popular. This finish provides amazing color depth and luminosity.  Rich vibrant colors glow on this unique surface.

SEMI-GLOSS – This finish bridges the gap perfectly between Gloss and Matte. It has the same qualities in color depth as the gloss and has a touch more luminosity than the matte. This finish is less reflective than gloss which is ideal for heavily lit areas where glare can be a concern.

MATTE – This can be a choice if reflection is a concern.  This surface provides a rich, smooth finish where colors come alive in a more subtle way than the gloss.






Okinawa, Japan

10 meters (30 feet at depth) during a day dive



When I was starting to get comfortable with diving, I was fortunate to be living on a tropical island, surrounded by volcanic rock.  This rock helped cultivate hundreds of miles of coral reefs.  Not a bad to place, to get acquainted with the underwater locals.  The inlet area across from street from where I lived had dramatic high and low tides.  When it was low tide, I would have to walk 50 yards before I got my feet wet.  I would start to swim in a crevice that would descend from five feet and then drop off to 30 feet.  I called this crevice, pufferfish lane.


Pufferfish would sit in this area all the time sleeping on the bottom but only during low tide.  As I swam passed pufferfish lane, a coral reef would be to my right.  When I built up my courage to swim a little further out, I noticed there was other rock formations out there, beyond the huge coral.   I swam out there one day, beyond where I normally go and to my surprise around the corner, there was an anemone with an orange clownfish.


When I first saw the anemone with the clownfish, I was shocked it was there.  It was hidden and doubt that this clownfish had ever seen a diver before.   The anemone was tucked away from the current and elements so after every typhoon I would check on this area.  It was always in good shape.  I was able to get so close to the clownfish that she almost kissed the front end of the camera.   When I would go diving off that spot, I always swam by to check out how she was doing.  She was always very photogenic.
