Boston Long Wharf

405 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Long Wharf, Boston, Massachusetts

This panoramic view of Boston was taken from the very end of Long Warf. It took some time for the crowd to dissipate, which provided me the opportunity to capture a peacefully desolate vibe of this beautiful city.  I did, however, have to sacrifice some quality family time on this night. Recognizing the splendor of the vantage point, I was persistent and patient. This meant that my companions on the shoot (sorry, Vince and Heidi) not only had to delay their dinner, but almost didn't get one at all.  By the time I had packed up the gear and lugged it across town to our preferred restaurant, the line was fifteen deep out the front door.  Those who have seen Boston's north side on a weekend know that we were going to be lucky at this point to get as much as a bag of pretzels for dinner. After several failed attempts at other restaurants, we were thrilled to be able to get some fish and chips on the patio of one restaurant minutes before the kitchen closed.

Canvas print

Our ready-to-hang canvas prints are created using a specialty printer that carefully lays pigment inks down onto archival-quality fine art canvas material. The canvas is then stretched around a 1.5-inch-deep wood support structure to provide depth and elegance. Our canvas material has a delightfully matte finish that looks spectacular in any lighting conditions while retaining maximum vibrancy and contrast. Click here to learn more.

Produced using a specialty, large-format fine art printer operating at 300ppi resolution—the gold standard for sharpness
Printed onto heavyweight, 100% acid-free fine art canvas to preserve color-accuracy and longevity
Created using materials and methods that exceed the rigorous technical standards required to achieve the prized "giclée" industry rating
Designed to meet the most demanding standards for color-permanence set by leading museums
Handmade by award-winning master printmakers with over 4 decades of experience
Optionally accompanied by your choice of elegant floater frame available in a variety of trims

VAST Print™

A VAST Print™ represents the pinnacle of the photographic medium. Each print is a true photograph created specifically for you using light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom with the industry's highest precision exposure technique. Your print is then sealed with a shine-enhancing protective glossy coating*, adhered to a sturdy aluminum composite backing, and finished in one of two ready-to-hang formats:

  • Frameless floating display: A hidden mounting brace on the rear gracefully "floats" the print off the wall for a sleek, modern look.
  • Framed display: The print is mounted inside one of our handcrafted 100% wood frames with a decorative separation between the print and the frame so that the print appears to be floating within the frame, providing depth and elegance to the finished photo.

*Note: a non-glossy, satin matte coating is alternatively available on request.
