262 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo print of the San Francisco skyline and the San Francisco Bay Bridge at sunset; cityscape photograph created by Chris Blake in Treasure Island, San Francisco

The iconic San Francisco Bay Bridge took just over three years and $77 million dollars to complete in the mid 1930’s. Providing passage from San Francisco to Oakland to over 94 million vehicles per year it is one of the longest spans in the United States. The eastern section of the bridge was just rebuilt in 2013. Designed by Charles H Purcell it has long stood as a magnificent example of suspension bridges.

Treasure Island in San Francisco affords a unique view of the always impressive Bay Bridge. Finding the right spot to be able to get this view was not easy, the island was mostly derelict years ago and today is now being built up with office and apartment buildings thanks to remediation efforts to remove dirt and topsoil contaminated with radiation due to the years of use by the US Navy.

This view of the bridge leading into San Francisco features some of the most notable landmarks. The Hills Brothers Coffee company has called their iconic brick building location home for just shy of 100 years. The beautifully lit Salesforce building is currently the largest building in San Francisco. You can see the Transamerica pyramid piercing the early evening sky. I love the way the Port of San Francisco lights up the waters of the Bay along with the exquisite backdrop provided by the sky’s magnificent blue hour.

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.
