I spend so much time looking at my images on computer screens, TV’s and LCD monitors so it is always refreshing to see my work as physical prints. Undoubtedly, when looking at colors, clarity and detail nothing beats being able to examine photographic prints especially when produced in a large format.
With this in mind, I recently produced and installed some new large pieces for various commercial spaces within Ann Arbor. The first was a 12 foot long panoramic wall mural of the University of Michigan football Stadium. The photograph shows the flyover of two F-18 jets prior to the Big Ten clash between Michigan and Penn State. The image was installed and has become the center piece of a new bar/restaurant called the Packard Pub. The establishment sits within a stone’s throw of one of America’s largest college stadiums and is clearly aimed at the die-hard Michigan sport’s fans given the maize and blue interior and U-M sporting theme.

I also recently delivered three large framed pieces to an office space on the South West side of town. Each photograph was 60″ x 40″, printed on Fuji fine-art crystal paper and framed with black wood. After delivery, I stuck around to help my client hang the shots and after an hour of making sure everything was level and correctly spaced out, we both admired the results. For me, nothing provides greater satisfaction than seeing the fruits of my labor in such a large format.
