FAQ

What do we print on?

We only print on a metallic pearl, archival, 255 gsm paper.

It is a highly dimensional, high gloss paper with a remarkable ‘pearlescent’ metallic finish. Colours ‘Pop’ on this paper especially when hung in a well-lit room.

Can I get a digital copy of an image?

No, we don’t release out master files out to the public. That includes images if you’re in the shot! We recommend buying a print.

Do you ship artworks?

Hell yeah! We ship artworks, books, gift cards to most countries in the world. Click on the flag icon on this website, top right…and all prices and timeframes will be revealed. More info

I want to see the artworks?

If you’re in Sydney, come to the Bondi Gallery, 151 Curlewis Street Bondi Beach Australia New South Wales or call us + 61 2 9130 7788 More info

How long does it take?

If we don’t have what you’re looking for in stock, we need to create it – by hand, one by one. That takes around 2-3 weeks plus shipping

Shipping, how long?

Depends on where you are, NSW – 1-2 days, VIC, TAS, QLD, NT 3-5 days and WA 5 days plus…

If you’re overseas, usually we can get artwork anywhere, once it’s made, within a week. But hey, it’s COVID, and the sky ain’t full of planes, so it can take anywhere between 1 week and 3 weeks. More info

How did Aquabumps start?

Ava gander of our history timeline

Does Uge do special photo commissions?

Nah. We’re flattered that you’re even asking this…There’s just not enough time in the day to do a set up shoot. Aquabumps’s solo photographer is busy feeding our print business with new images – and to come to shoot your dog on the beach for a few hours just doesn’t work for us.

How many people work at Aquabumps?

At the last Christmas party of 2020, there were 10 staff. All amazing people who are passionate about Aquabumps and the beach as you are. If you’d like to join our team, we occasionally hire – just keep an eye on our feeds.

Who shoots all the photos?

A guy called Uge (Eugene Tan). He’s a hyperactive, beach lover that has been shooting daily, since 1999. Maybe read our history page for more deets.

What gear does Uge use?

In one word – LOTS! Uge was a Canon Ambassador for nearly 15 years, but is now shooting on Sony and Phase One. Uge is a tech-buff, so he likes the latest and greatest. In the water he uses AquaTech Water housings (and has done so since 2000)

Are we having a Black Friday Sale?

As we custom create, by hand, to order, each artwork, we’re not having a big black Friday sale like other retailers with mass produced goods.
