I read this quote once, We take photos as a “return ticket” to a moment that is otherwise gone. I seem to understand this more and more as I relive my memories through photos.
In my line-of-work, I have had the pleasure to view hundreds and hundreds (and hundreds) of trophy fish photos. Clients share their “return ticket” of a perfect day on the water, in the quest to recapture their memory with a custom fish replica mount.
In the last 5 years I’ve seen a trend. Anglers are sending me photos of a fish they caught 10, 20 or 30 years ago (some even from their childhood), because they realize they did catch their best trophy…a long time ago.
Maybe you have an old photo you’d like to share? The process to order a custom fish replica is simple. Send your photo to my email and I will follow-up with a price quote. My waiting list averages 9-11 months for completion and I ask for a 35% deposit to confirm your due date. Deposits may be made through a payment button on my website, by mail, or a phone call with your debit/credit card does the trick too.
Finally, if you want to check-out pricing before you commit to contacting me, I’ve included “sold-for” prices on all the photos of Salmon, Steelhead and Trout fish replica art pieces on my website. With over 700 art pieces and over 20 years in the fish replica business, I now have a deeper passion for what I do and enjoy each custom art piece I create.
Thanks to all my clients for trusting me with their memories. – Luke Filmer
