No more than that will ever be signed and numbered prints of each piece, (all sizes combined) will ever be produced. This will give a higher value to your investment compared with prints that are available in much larger quantities.
When the first 40% of the edition is sold, the price automatically goes up and thereafter a certain percentage of prints sold a price increase until it reaches SOLD OUT.

The sooner you purchase a print, the higher the value of your investment will become over time. Once you purchase a Cheyne Walls Limited Edition Photograph, you then become a collector and will receive 10% off all future purchase of Cheyne’s Limited Edition Photographs.
The first few prints Cheyne produces are called an “Artist’s Proof”. Those first prints created are the Artist’s Proofs and are kept on hand as the print proofs for future printing. Artist Proofs are very exclusive and very few will ever be produced per photograph. They will be signed, “AP” and numbered in order as printed. Artist Proofs are priced higher as Limited Edition Prints due to their extremely limited nature. Additionally an Artist’s Proof has special value because of its extra rarity and they are the first printed of that photograph.
AP are very seldom displayed in galleries and not often available for purchase until that photograph is close to sold out. Artist Proofs can also only be purchased through the artist himself.
These are all actual photographs from real locations. All images have been captured with a professional high quality panoramic camera system, lenses & filters on location around the United States and Europe.
This allows for Cheyne’s limited edition photographs to be printed extremely large without losing detail clarity or color quality.
Camera techniques are used so when printed will present the location as if you were stand there witnessing that moment yourself. Today’s best camera technology still doesn’t even come close to what the human eye can appreciate. This is where the use of lens filters and an in-depth printing process fills in to recreate the scene, as the human eye would see it.
Each Cheyne Walls limited edition photograph is printed and approved by the artist himself, ensuring only the highest quality for his buyers and collectors. Using a custom top of the line printer, photographs are printed on premium fine art custom gloss paper or premium high-end metallic paper.
Before and after the printing process, the paper is coated with newly developed archival pigments to prevent against fading and give the photograph the vibrant colors that Cheyne’s work is known for. Following the printing process, they are signed and numbered as limited edition and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
10% of all sales is donated to the National Parks of America.
10% of all sales of images captured in Hawaii is donated to the Kauai Humane Society.
