737 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo print of the Hollywood Sign from behind at sunset with the city in the background; cityscape fine art photograph created by Tim Shields in Hollywood, California, USA

Tim Shields is the founder of Photography Academy, author of The Photo Cookbook, and creator of the Photography Transformation Four-Step System.

In 2018, Tim was awarded "Nature Photographer of the Year" by Master Photographers International and holds the designation of Master Photographer in Fine Art (MPI).

Tim specializes in ultra-high-resolution panoramic images. His passion for the outdoors takes him to remote hike-in locations where he packs in his photography and camping gear in search of unique landscape compositions and warm "golden hour" light. Tim believes that mountains, streams, and oceans are the world's most beautiful pieces of art, and his goal is to capture vibrant images that reflect the true beauty of the earth so that a brief moment of perfect light can be enjoyed for years to come.

Tim Shields has traveled throughout North America, Europe, and China in search of the perfect landscape image. He has won numerous photographic awards and lives in White Rock, Canada. He is an honors graduate from the BC Institute of Technology in Civil and Structural Engineering and holds a master of arts degree.

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.
