It is one of the highest quality images
This huge VAST photo is the most challenging composition in my portfolio to date. My goal was to create a VAST photo of Crystal Cove Beach in Southern California… at a high enough resolution make an incredibly large 50ft. x 8ft. wall print. That aspect ratio was almost an insurmountable challenge.
My first three attempts at photographing the beach did not produce enough width to cover the span and there wasn’t enough compelling detail to the water side of the image to justify continuing in that direction with the camera. The fourth attempt provided the break that I was looking for. It came in the form of ‘low tide’. The ocean significantly retreated to reveal the trademark rock formations of the coastline that Crystal Cove Beach is known for.
Strategically timing multiple images of the water action at each camera position was necessary to facilitate the difficult job of blending the ocean images together into one amazing composition.
The final VAST photo is one that I’m very proud of – and one that looks truly stunning as a large-format, wide-aspect-ratio wall covering.

VAST Prints are fine art photographic paper prints that arrive ready to be mounted and/or framed. They are created using the sharpest photographic printer in commercial use: a very rare specialty printer that formerly printed military surveillance imagery. Learn more
Every VAST Print has two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one affixed to the print and one standalone. Additionally, each print is assigned a unique serial number via a permanent hologram seal and recorded in our registry. Its provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital blockchain encryption technology.
VAST Displays are ready-to-hang works of art that contain a VAST Print sealed between flame-polished acrylic glass and an aluminum backing. A hidden brace on the back causes the display to gracefully "float" off the wall for a sleek, modern frameless look that complements nearly any decor style. Learn more
