Limited Edition

Every print on this site is a limited edition, 1 of 10. These works are only being sold because I believe them to have value, and by choosing not to broadly commoditize them, I won't undercut that worth. When all 10 are sold, prints of that image will never be brought back or re-issued in print form. Any and all of these images, however, may be featured in JW.S® digital products, or publications such as books and editorial features. In the instance an image has been licensed, featured, or has been printed in a different form, I will make an effort to annotate that on this page. (but cannot guarantee it will always be up-to-date)

While this helps each image retain its value, it also substantiates my view that photography is a continual journey forward. I don't want a small set of images, subject-matter, or styles to perpetually define me as a photographer. Maybe for a small time they will, but I hope to keep progressing, and evolving to something new.

Each image is also shot and edited as an individual piece– entirely different from any other on the site.  I don’t use presets, or do bulk editing– in many instance, each image will have 1-15 unique edits before the final one is settled upon. Similarly, these images are also likely to also be updated as I continue to refine my editing techniques. If there's a significant change to a purchased image, I'd be happy to replace the previous edit at cost.

* It is important to note, that signatures will temporarily be withheld until I get my own printing up and running.

( B → 002 // 003)
paper

All paper prints use Epson Hot Press Bright Paper– an acid free, 100% cotton rag media with a bright smooth finish. This paper has an extremely-high color gamut and black density.

(Material Details)
×  Smooth Matte Finish
×  98% Opacity
×  17 Mil (Sheet) / 16 Mil (Roll)
×  96 ISO Brightness
×  Acid Free
×  PH Buffered


Each paper print size includes a 1" white border to allow for easier matting. If you do not want this included, please follow up with an email within 1-2 days of purchase so I can accommodate.

( B → 001 // 003)
Ready for
Whatever

While my photographic prints have both paper and acrylic options, I wanted to keep the spirit of the traditional posters, and keep these simple. They're meant for whatever purpose you see fit. If you want to use thumb tacks or scotch tape to hang them, they're good for that. If you want to go the longevity route, you can matte and frame them.

While the photographic prints are also limited editions,  these are meant to have more of a mass appeal– meaning a more accessible price point. The paper of choice is meant to keep printing costs down while retaining a high standard of quality of image quality and longevity. As I do more test prints and explore papers over time, paper stock and price-point might shift.

Prints

All posters will be printed on Kodak Lustre paper, which will have more of a matte finish. This paper features a true photographic resin-coated base paper and e-surface finish with "pulp of unsurpassed quality.

About

This screensaver consists of a wide range of my photo work, displayed in HD. The repository of images it pulls from will be regularly updated with new work, and it will push dynamically to your device. In general I'm very protective of my work, but this screensaver uses encryption to protect my images from being pirated, so I can confident distribute high-res imagery.

Many people have only experienced my work in the diminutive form-factor that is Instagram™, so this also gives them a chance to see more. There will also be shots that just don't work on instagram, but will be found in the screensaver.

We also recently added the ability for you to control what categories you'd like to see. (Not everyone likes surfing as much as me, I get it). Here's a list of the current categories.

×

Free? Paid?
Invest? huh?

While I want to keep this product free, I want to continue to improve it with more features, more reliability, and more exploration. Unfortunately all that costs money– including hosting/distribution, and hiring additional developers to help to make it happen. As a way to potentially offset those costs and enable further development, there's an option to invest via paid options.

At the moment, running it for free isn't going to put me out on the streets, so if you enjoy it but you don't have the funds to support it right now, thats ok. Please dont stress, I'm not.

*For some insight, some possible additions/improvements I'm looking at are ways to integrate video and designs, more customizability, additional info, transitions, etc.

( B → 002 // 003)
Version
History
(Version 1.3.1)

A couple house keeping bugs with this one. The screensaver is fully compliant with Big Sur and M1 chipped Macs. A small by-product is that the screensaver will continue to show as you enter your password after being away (previous version would show system default images). Another big fix is the way random images are shown– the full catalog of images will play through before you see a repeat of an image.

(Version 1.2)

We added the ability for you to choose which categories you'd like to see. All images are now tagged, and you can control what you'd like to see. I have a penchant for dark and moody images, but maybe that not your thing. Or maybe you think surfing is dumb. Thats alright– you can create your own little safe space.

I also went through and re-edited ALL images. After doing some testing on various screens, it became clear there was some gross stuff going on with many of the images (odd color banding, odd coloration, over-saturation, weird contrast, and over-bearing grain). I do use the screensaver myself to regularly look at things to improve.. so there will be regular re-edits.

(Version 1.1)

A couple minor bug updates, nothing too major. Presentation is bare bones, but it works!

( B → 002 // 003)
Donate

Enjoy the (JW.S) Screensaver? Please consider donating to my Patreon to further its development (done by my brother so far). I have a lot of ideas for ways to make this better/ more visually interesting, and a better experience for you, the user. There's only so much that can be done with regards to functionality... it is a screensaver after all.. but visually I think we can do some pretty cool stuff.

Beyond the time spend exporting, tagging, and uploading– there are costs associated with hosting this service. It's not breaking the bank, but its just another thing in a long list of services. So the screensaver will remain free, but as it scales, it might need to be more dependent on donations.

( B → 001 // 003)
So, What
is it?

Don't have enough room for a print? Don't want a print? Well, this app can turn your TV into a lot of prints. The app pulls from a repository of high-res images that is constantly being updated, and then pushed dynamically to the app.

This app consists of a wide range of my photo work, viewable in HD, and will be expanded upon semi-regularly. Most people experience my work in the diminutive form-factor that is Instagram™, so this will give a chance to see more details at a much larger scale. There's also some shots that just don't work on instagram, but will be found in the app.

At the moment, Apple doesn't allow third party apps to be set as screensavers– unfortunately you'll have to go into the app every time you want to use it. It's not ideal, but what can you do. If that ever changes, I assure you we'll start working on implementing that feature... don't hold your breath though.

Version
History
(Version 1.1)

After some initial bugs in 1.0, 1.1 fixes a few things.. thats it really. There's still an issue with aspect ratios... this drives me bananas, and hopefully is something we'll release an update for sooner than later.

As a side note, the TV app does not support the same categorization filtering that the screensaver does. It's a bit more of an undertaking in tvOS... if there's enough demand/Patreon support (ahem), we might be able to make this make this happen.

Presets
Overview

Presets are very useful things. They help facilitate consistency and sharply increase efficiency. But like all things being applied in bulk, it's important for the preset to be fully vetted. And even then, it's important to understand that presets are fundamentally NOT one size fits all. While I've tried to cover off different scenarios and make them as flexible as possible, they will still require some modification to taste.

If you purchase them and find severe issue with how they're applied to your image, please let me know I'll try to revise or advise as necessary.

( B → 002 // 003)
Compatability

These presets have been created and tested on the latest version of Lightroom Classic. (11.0.1). This means that they should also work on Lightroom CC and mobile. Backward compatibility has not been fully tested, so for best results, please make sure your software is up to date.

( B → 001 // 003)
Figma Files
Overview

Figma is an amazing piece of software that most designers use today in some capacity. This product is meant to only enhance that.

If you purchase them and find severe issue with how they're applied to your image, please let me know I'll try to revise or advise as necessary.

( B → 002 // 003)
Compatability

This product will work on both free and paid accounts with Figma.

It has not been tested on any legacy versions of Figma... because I'm not even sure you can technically run a legacy versions since it's so cloud-based. I'm highly confident this will work with what you have.

( B → 001 // 003)
Mock-ups
Overview

Mock-ups are visual representations of a product or design that are used to communicate ideas and gather feedback. They can be used to present designs to stakeholders, clients, and team members, and are an essential tool for the design process. Using mock-ups allows designers to present their ideas in a tangible way, making it easier for others to understand and provide feedback on the design.

One of the main benefits of using mock-ups is that they allow designers to test and iterate on their designs before committing to the final version. This can save time and resources by catching potential issues early in the design process. Additionally, mock-ups can be used to test designs with users and gather feedback, which can inform and improve the final design. Overall, using mock-ups is an effective way to communicate and validate design ideas, making them an important tool for the design process.

( B → 002 // 003)
Compatability

These presets have been created and tested on the latest version of Lightroom Classic. (11.0.1). This means that they should also work on Lightroom CC and mobile. Backward compatibility has not been fully tested, so for best results, please make sure your software is up to date.

What's it
About

These wallpaper packs... well, they're sets of images for your cellular device. Each collection is put together based on various thematic through-lines. Each image is also typically available as a print.. so if there's any that you like, check the prints category for availability, or feel free to reach out.

I primarily put these out because I get a lot of requests for them, and I'm terrible about getting people images since my head is always in the clouds somewhere. (I still owe images all over town... some from 2 years ago. It's bad.) I've also had a lot of people want to support this creative endeavor of mine, but don't want a print, don't want to be on the hook for a Patreon sorta deal, or wouldn't mind something tangible in return. Well, hopefully this solves some of that, and if not– no worries. I really do appreciate the support, and hopefully these will offset some of my costs to create this work, but I'll be fine whether or not people actually download these.

(B → 003 // 004)
Installation

If you're curious about how the process of getting the wallpapers to work on your device, here's the basic process:

Purchase the wallpaper pack
Open the email containing the download link
Click the link to the downloads page
Enter the password
Save the images to your phone
Set as Wallpaper
Tell everyone about it.

This process may change as I will continue to look for ways to make this better. Unfortunately there isn't a native way to download sets of images on a mobile device... so I understand its seems a little painful right now, but the list looks worse than it is.

Once you have the images, there will also be step-by-step instructions on the downloads page for both iOS and Android. If you also want to download the image to your desktop, and then transfer the images to your phone from there, there will be instructions for that as well. Setting wallpapers is something I believe most people are already familiar with, but in the info I've collected doesn't suffice... ask a friend?

(B → 004 // 004)
FAQs

You might still have some questions, so here's some answers that may help things along if you're not sure about something...

Can I share these images with others?

Please do not share these images with anyone. I understand there is nothing technically stopping you from doing it (beyond violating the agreed upon Terms and Conditions), but it would be appreciated if you didn't. Send them to this site instead to keep these going.

I don't see the shot I want as a wallpaper, can I request images for wallpapers?

Absolutely. I can't promise I can/will accommodate, but I am putting this together for others, and I don't pretend to have the greatest pulse on that at times.

Can I download these multiple times?

Sure, if you'd like– just keep them only on your devices.

I have a work and personal phone, can I put these on both?

You bet.

I can't figure out how to get the wallpapers working, what should I do?

Re-read the instructions, ask a friend, say a prayer? I don't think I'll have the bandwidth to offer installation support, so I don't want to suggest it as an option to getting this sorted out. You can try, and I'll respond if I have time... but I believe in you. You got this.

Are there any refunds?

The short answer is no, sorry. Once you have access to the download link, there's really no going back. If you feel you have just cause for a refund, I'd like to think I can be pretty fair, so please contact me and we'll get it sorted.
