Matting is exceptional. Image is timeless. Beautiful atmosphere and composition.

Shawn Crowley

The matting was fine but in the future I would ask for 16X20 matting in order to more easily find a stock frame.

Custom Matting

I really appreciate the option of having Ray's prints custom matted. Receiving a matted print really enhances the appearance--prints are meant to be displayed, after all, not stored away in a box. A matted print is one step closer to a framed print to be shared with others. That's, after all, what art is all about.

Custom Mats

The hand cut mats perfectly finish the prints and photographs. The materials you use help preserve the art and make it easy to frame.

About Ray Bidegain

One Photographers Journey

For the last 22 years I have been lucky enough to spend my time working as a fine art photographer, and specifically working as a photographer who photographed using large format negatives and made platinum prints from the camera negatives.

The platinum period

Many of you have collected these platinum prints over the years and some of you have learned platinum printing from me along the way. I love the process and I have loved every minute of this period in my work. Platinum printing is an amazing and beautiful way to make photographs.

The Gravures

For the last five years I have started working on making photogravure prints, polymer plate photogravure prints, to be specific. I worked on it, decided I wanted to make a change and make a commitment to working as a printmaker making photogravure prints. You all know me as a person who likes handmade photography. Handmade objects are at the heart of my photographic journey and printmaking is all of that, and more.

The Cascabel Press Studio

My darkroom and printmaking studio

for the last 32 years I have worked in the cozy basement of my 110 year old home in Portland Oregon. Your fine prints are made here and are a product of my love of photography and art.

My backyard daylight studio

Where I make pictures

for the last several years I have been making my work in a small daylight studio in my backyard.
