David Elmore, founder and CEO.

David's passion for photography started over 40 years ago with a Leica 35-mm range-finder camera and black-and-white darkroom printing. He upgraded his camera, but still loves photographing nature and landscapes while traveling all over - from the Galapagos to Southwestern deserts to the llama farm in his own backyard. You can find examples of David Elmore's photographs in the galleries at elmorephoto.com and davidelmore.com. As a retired Physics Professor, David brings his analytical and experimental mindset into the wood and print shop where he invents novel ways to display photography.

About our products

Our Photo Silk is a water-resistant satin cloth especially developed for giclée prints. Our prints are predicted to last over 75 years without any cover, and we offer a lifetime guarantee against fading. A protective coating stops the damaging UV light and allows easy cleaning.

Our novel lamp designs are made from locally sourced hardwoods and ceramics. We grow, harvest, dry, and finish black walnut, oak, sycamore, and cherry all on our farm in Indiana. Our shades are printed with a 44 inch giclee printer. We take care so your lamps and shades will last for generations!
