698 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo print of the Golden Gate Bridge in front of the San Francisco skyline on a blue sky day; photograph created by Jim Tarpo in Mill Valley, California

On a perfectly clear day I searched for an effective vantage point to capture the entirety of the Golden Gate bridge. I settled on a location just a few yards from an old coastal gun battery called Battery Wagner. You can certainly tell that it had been idle for quite some time. In fact it was deactivated in 1917 when the 5" guns were needed overseas in WWII.

From 4:00pm to 8:00pm on Sept 13, 2019 at an excellent viewpoint I was able to capture this huge image of the bridge nicely illuminated by the sun in the late afternoon. The gargantuan boat fron the NYK line international shipping company was an impressive site to see, and a great accent to this photo.

I was feeling a great sense of anticipation about the shoot throughout the day after I had decided on the location. And sure enough the fully exposed late day sun lit that bridge up and brought out the full classic red-orange color in exactly the way I thought it would.

Print only

Our photographic prints are created using a specialty, large-format fine art printer designed to produce archival, museum-grade prints. They are true "chromogenic" prints: light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom using state-of-the-art lasers to produce the sharpest possible image. Click on the icons below to learn more or click here to explore further.

Our photographic prints are available in one of two finishes: glossy and lustre. Glossy prints have a rich, silky saturation and are great for environments where the lighting and reflections have been carefully thought through. Lustre prints have a bright, sparkle-like finish that diffuses reflections and are therefore more versatile for environments where the lighting and reflections are less under your control.

Your print comes with two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one that you will affix to the finished piece and one that remains standalone. Additionally, your print's provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital technology. Learn more.

Acrylic glass display

Our acrylic glass displays are ready-to-hang works of art that contain one of our photographic prints sealed between flame-polished acrylic glass and an aluminum backing. A hidden mounting brace on the rear causes the display to gracefully "float" off the wall for a sleek, modern frameless look that complements nearly any decor style.
