MEGAs

Pacific Coast Gallery is one of the leading galleries in the world specializing in super high-resolution large format photos, which we call MEGAs.

Some of our MEGAs are over a gigapixel (1000 Megapixels, or a billion pixels), roughly 40 times the resolution of a normal photo. They can be printed at wall-filling sizes, some over 40 feet wide, while retaining their sharpness. Click here to learn more about how we create a MEGA. Or click here to explore all MEGAs.

 

Custom Printing a MEGA


Customize Your Size

Due to their large sizes, MEGAs are very malleable and are often custom printed to specific sizes to perfectly fit a large space in an office or a home.

 

Customize Your Aspect Ratio and Crop

In addition, they can often be cropped to fit a specific space. Because we have so much resolution in the image to work with, custom sizes and crops are rarely a problem. Please contact us if you'd like to discuss a custom MEGA, either by email at art@pacificcoast.gallery or by phone at +1-310-853-3564.

How We Create a MEGA

To create a MEGA, Matthew Welch shoots each scene in a grid, and then composites the final image on the computer. The shoot is effectively data collection, and the final photo is born in the computer. Shooting this way, he is able to create a modern version of large format photos, with unparalleled levels of sharpness and detail.

Here you can see the difference in resolution and clarity between one of our gigapixel MEGAs and a standard photo taken with a 24 megapixel camera or with a phone camera.

What Our Customers Have To Say About MEGAs

"No one else could print a photo as big as I needed.

I have a huge wall, and I needed a huge image to fill it. So glad I found the MEGAs - my photo is a 3 by 9 foot tyiptych, and every inch of it is tack sharp.

People can't believe it when they see it - they get up close to inspect all of the barnacles on the pier. It is just insane."

"When we were in the early construction phase of building the Emory Proton Therapy Center, Provident Resources Group & Stantec Architecture reached out to Pacific Coast Gallery - we knew their series of ultra high resolution MEGAs could be printed at the wall-filling sizes we needed – some as long as 20 feet wide.

Working with Matt and Monica and Pacific Coast Gallery was a pleasure from start to finish. Matt even personally visited the construction site to get a feel for the space, and then we were presented with dozens of curated images to select from...

But beyond their high level of service and professionalism, what really matters is the finished result, and the installed photos are even more striking than we could have imagined. "

"I dropped by Pacific Coast Gallery, a really special place, one day as I was passing by and was awe struck by the imagery of Daydream. The colors are so vibrant that when I first observed the artwork I assumed it was backlit. The color literally pops off the image. I went back multiple times to the Gallery and each visit I would end up standing in front of this piece to admire its color, shadows, light and forms. Ultimately I acquired Daydream for our home, and am still captivated by the brilliant color and artistic eye of the photographer."
