Giclée + Other Art Terms
Giclée: From the French verb gicler, meaning, “to spray.” It is pronounced “zhee-clay”. The giclée process uses an incredibly accurate computer-controlled jet to apply ink to watercolor paper, canvas or etching paper. These unique jets are able to vary the width of the ink stream to as small as 1/100th the width of human hair. Giclées have a higher resolution than offset lithographs and the dynamic color range is greater than serigraph. Giclée reproductions are used to produce museum quality, fine art reproductions. In the art world it is generally regarded as the highest quality reproduction available.
About Keith Walker
For over 30 years I have worked extensively with digital imaging and computer graphic systems, both as a photographer and as a Civil Engineering Techologist in the consulting engineering and construction industries. I use high end photography equipment plus a wide variety of imaging software applications to meet and exceed my client’s expectations.
My first foray into aerial photography in 1999 required the skills to quickly change roll after roll of film in a pitching helicopter, without a door. Fortunately digital professional cameras came onto the scene shortly after. Also, fortunately, I seem to have a cast iron stomach for handling tight orbits while looking through a camera lens ... unlike many photographers, and a few clients as well!
After a few years of establishing my business, I reluctantly put my 25 years of engineering skills to rest to pursue my passion for art and aerial photography full time.
I live in Calgary but regularly travel across Canada for photo flights for a wide variety of clients. I have reciprocal arrangements with other aerial photographers in the US and overseas.
