A look at the VAST certificate of authenticity

A look at the VAST certificate of authenticity

The standalone VAST certificate of authenticity is a valuable component of every VAST Print we make. In conjunction with the affixed certificate of authenticity, it serves to validate the nature of a print as a genuine VAST Print. We take great pride in the quality of our photos, printing process, and brand - and our certificate of authenticity system protects those things, both for us and for you, the owner.

Upconverting “The Hand of Zeus” from 40 to 5,449 megapixels

Photo Release: “Snowdrift” by Dan Piech

It has been a goal of mine to capture this delicate purity for many years. However, each year, the possibility of finding this state of affairs in the natural world is incredibly slim...

Photo Release: “Brooklyn Radiance” by Dan Piech

Brooklyn, living in the ever-present shadow of Manhattan, rarely gets the attention it would be showered with were it placed anywhere else in the US. Many photographers, artists, tourists, and New Yorkers flock to Brooklyn only to turn around and face the more-imposing Manhattan skyline across the East River. So, for quite some time, I've wanted to flip this standard behavior on its head and capture a VAST photo of the vibrant Brooklyn skyline from Manhattan...
