Fine Art Photographic Print: Neal Preston (1977)
Behind the lens with... Neal Preston
"I don’t recall what city we were playing, but I distinctly remember that were flying back to New York. Someone from the Swan Song office told me that Jimmy needed a photo shot for his passport - he had plans to go to Egypt after the last show of this leg of the tour and the photo was for his visa.
"I was told that the photo absolutely had to be delivered the next day, without fail. It was all on me, and if I screwed up there would be no trip for Jimmy - at least not to Egypt.
"I asked Jimmy to stand in the back of the plane and I shot three frames, bouncing a strobe off the top of the fuselage. There would be no time for him to see the photo before it had to be sent to the Egyptian authorities, so the second we landed I was put in a limo to run me to the photo lab.
"I put the roll through the night drop slot in an envelope with a rather terse note saying I would at the lab personally by 9am to pick out a frame to print for the visa application (needless to say I didn’t go to sleep)…and that missing my deadline was not an option!"

Handle with care
Silver gelatin photographic printing is the traditional way of producing photographs. Each one is a piece of art and should be treated as such. They are extremely delicate and particularly sensitive to handling. We advise that you do not remove the print from its protective archival bag or handle the paper directly but bring it directly to a professional framer. Request acid-free museum board for mounting and matting to best display and preserve the photograph when framed. Further care instructions will be included with each print upon delivery.
Each Fine Art Print has been checked and approved before packing in archival protection and shipping. Please follow the care instructions provided. All Fine Art Prints will be shipped via secure courier delivery and will require a signature upon receipt.
