266 megapixels! A very high resolution, large-format VAST photo print of a green forest covered in moss; nature photograph created by Chris Collacott.

Magical Moss


The coastal regions of southwestern Canada are known for their temperate rain forests. I wanted to capture this beauty so I drove an hour deep into the forest. After coming to my planned destination, the feeling of the cool, damp air enveloping my face confirmed that I was in the right place. Each breath of air brought with it a beautiful, fresh smell of the forest - a mix of pine & greenery.

Most forests are covered with debris of fallen trees and underbrush but I wanted to find a location that was unique and different. So, I discovered this special place which was mostly clear of debris and covered with a fresh coating of moss. This allowed for a VAST photo that had a greater amount of visual simplicity and calm.

As I exposed the photos that would ultimately make up the final VAST photo, I could hear the occasional birdsong in the distance. But, other than that, there was a tranquil silence that made for a magical, meditative experience.

VAST photos are the highest resolution photos ever made.

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.
