Photo Onto Canvas: Mitimiti Sunset


Zoe came to see me about having this photo printed onto canvas and gallery wrapped. It was a stunning sunset taken at Mitimiti on the west coast, Northwest of the Hokianga Harbour, Northland, New Zealand.

I discussed with Zoe the canvas print would best if the whole of the image was retained on the front. I extended the size to preserve a 3D effect and made the frame 620mm x 465mm. Zoe loved the final print.

Photo Onto Canvas: Wonderful Bush Scene


Judy called me about having a bush scene printed onto canvas. It was a thankyou present for a colleague whom has worked at the Northern Regional Council, Whangarei, for a large number of years.

The scene is from Waipoua River in the Waipoua Forest, Northland, New Zealand, taken by Alan from “Bee Scene”. The mounted canvas was 600mm x 400mm, made with a black border and a thank you caption at the bottom. Judy was thrilled with the look of the vibrant colours and contrast the canvas did to the photo. Alan has a gallery where you can view more of his great photography: Bee Scene

Canvas Photo Printing: Glass Slide Scans Put onto Canvas

Brent came to see me about making a great 6oth birthday – glass slide scans put onto a mounted canvas. Brent’s father had been to see me about 2 years ago wanting some old glass slides scanned and put onto CD. They were old glass slide adverts used at the Thames cinema back in the 1920’s. Brent’s great grandfather ran a very succesful plumbing business advertising all sorts of supplies – paints, timber, stoves, plumbing fittings and more.

Brent wanted six slides made into a square then printed onto canvas and mounted. We chose the ones he wanted and it which order whereupon I resized them, did the canvas print then mounted it. All done in less than 48 hours as Brent had forgotten and only just remembered!

Brent was over the moon about the final print and now has ideas of having tea-shirts made commemorating the adverts.
