The Great Telescope

Paris, France

The Great Paris Exhibition Telescope of 1900 was impressive. With an objective lens of 49" in diameter and a focal length of 187 FEET (a very large camera lens has a focal length of about 32 inches), it could only be mounted in a fixed horizontal position. Too large to aim at astronomical objects and not suited for scientific use, it was disassembled for scrap in 1901.

These telescopes surrounding the observation decks of the Eiffel Tower are great looking and offer a great view of the city of Paris. Compared to the Great Exhibition Telescope they are of much greater use. Why you would climb to a higher elevation for a broad perspective of a city then pay for a narrow view of it remains a puzzle.

Fine Art Print

Fine Art Print

A beautiful and classic way to display your photographs is with a traditionally framed print. Your image is printed to the highest standard available using pigment-based inks, 100% cotton rag, archival-quality paper and coatings for vibrant colorfastness, clarity and depth that will last a lifetime. 

All prints are mounted on 2mm acid-free polystyrene allowing for framing without the need for additional mounting and greatly reducing the possibility of being damaged in handling. Please contact me if you prefer/need a traditional loose-paper print.

High Gloss Metal

High Gloss Metal

Metal prints have striking color depth and contrast and a brilliant glossy finish. Medium and large metal prints can really produce a wow factor unlike other display options. Images with deep color saturation and rich black tones have an extra "pop" when printed on metal and the thick glossy finish has a shiny wet appearance. These ready-to-hang prints come with a sturdy hanging system and appear to float off the wall.

Metal prints are a great choice for a clean, contemporary look without the need for framing.

Gallery Canvas

Gallery Canvas

Canvas Gallery Wraps are a fantastic and popular way to display medium and large-format photographs. Ready-to-hang right out of the box they eliminate the need, cost and weight of additional framing. Canvas wraps allow full edge-to-edge display of fine art photos and are easily viewed from all angles as the image "wraps" around the frame all the way to the wall.

Gallery wraps are a great option for large rooms with a lot of light as the canvas surface is less reflective than traditional glass or acrylic framing.

Exhibition Acrylic

Exhibition Acrylic

Acrylic float mounts have a stunning modern art gallery look. Printed on metallic paper and mounted on 3mm DiBond (a lightweight, strong, archival-quality mounting surface) the print is face-mounted to 1/4" clear acrylic and fitted with your choice of mounting system; french cleat or stainless post. Similar to metal prints, acrylic mounts display vibrant color density, deep black tones and sharp contrast. 

Choose acrylic mounts for exhibition-level photo displays in your home or business.
