Dan Piech is an entrepreneur, designer, engineer, and pioneering photographic artist. He leads a team of like-minded technology innovators producing the highest resolution fine art photographs ever created.

Dan's passion for photographic artwork began while experimenting in the darkroom as a child and his desire to push the technological envelope subsequently led him to begin exploring novel uses of digital imaging technologies. After years of research, development, and engineering, Dan has honed a unique set of techniques for generating exceptionally high quality images with distinctive aesthetic qualities. In 2017, Dan built and launched VAST, a company devoted to advancing the art and craftsmanship of ultra high resolution image-making.

Prior to starting VAST, Dan founded a full-service creative studio specializing in photography, design, & web-development, was head of product management & partnerships for an internet data analytics company, and also led product management teams at large tech companies. Dan was awarded the National Rising Star Award by the Advertising Research Foundation for his work to model consumer habits on the internet and has degrees in economics, art, and public policy from Duke University.

A thought-leader in the industry, Dan has spoken at a variety of conferences and events, including MIT's Hacking Arts Festival, Social Media Week, OMMA Global, E-Business Week, and the NAB Show, among others.

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.
