OUR PHOTO STYLES, SIZES & FRAMES

PRINT OR ACRYLIC FACEMOUNT, FRAMED OR UNFRAMED, BIG OR SMALL, STANDARD OR CUSTOM, COLOR OR BLACK & WHITE

Our photos are available in a range of styles, from luminous facemounts to standard photographic prints. All of our photos are limited edition, and we offer a range of sizes and framing options, and all images can also be printed to a custom size upon request. Also, almost all of our images are available as either color or black and white. You can specify if you want the color or black and white version when you place the order.

No matter which style you choose, know that here is one commonality across all of them: our fanaticism with each detail in the photographic, processing and printing processes. The elements build on each other and cumulatively create photos of exceptional clarity, beauty and longevity.

PHOTO STYLES

MUSEUM QUALITY PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINT
(NO FRAME)


Unframed photographic prints are museum quality, custom-printed photographs, printed on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag Baryta , Ilford Gold Fiber Gloss or Ilford Gold Fiber Silk Baryta paper (archival for 200+ years according to Wilhelm Research). These are super thick 310gsm photographic papers featuring a traditional barium sulfate (baryta) base. The baryta base enhances the photo's surface, producing creamy whites and velvety blacks that form part of the unique look and feel of a traditional fiber based print. The papers produces real high definition images with an extended tonal range, ranging from vivid color to dramatic black and whites. These prints are shipped in a tube.

You're in control: most of our images are available as either color or black and white. You can specify if you want the color or black and white version when you place the order. Additionally, you can choose the standard version, or a more muted version of the photo.


MUSEUM QUALITY PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINT,
WHITE OR BLACK FRAME


Framed photographic prints are printed on the same Hahnemuhle or Ilford photographic paper. They're then mounted and framed with a premium hardwood Studio Moulding frame and placed with spacers behind 99% UV-blocking acrylic glass. You can select a white or black frame.


ACRYLIC FACEMOUNT
(WITH STANDARD ACRYLIC)


This is our signature photo style, which has an almost 3D appearance. It is custom printed by one of the leading fine art printers in the world. Unlike other acrylic facemounts which use regular Fuji paper, we use a custom-made proprietary paper that contains Iridium particles, for incredible luminosity and dynamic range. These images are so luminous, people often think they are backlit.

To seal the image, we mount the front of the photo to optically clear 99% UV-blocking acrylic. We then mount the back of the photo to rigid DiBond which seals and protects the back of the print. Lastly, unlike most acrylic facemounts which skimp on the frame, we use a hardwood Italian ROMA frame on the back of the photo - this is extremely strong and straight hardwood, and it will keep the photo from bowing. If we go this much effort for the back of the image that you'll never see, then you can be sure we go to even greater extremes for the image itself. Our acrylic facemounts are archival for 120 years.


ACRYLIC FACEMOUNT
WITH LOW GLARE TRULIFE ACRYLIC


This premium version of our acrylic facemounts uses the same proprietary paper with Iridium particles as our standard acrylic facemounts, as well as the same hardwood ROMA frame on the back.

In addition they are facemounted to a premium TruLife acrylic, which is low-glare, scratch-resistant and anti-static to repel dust. This is a good choice for heavily trafficked spaces, commercial installations, areas where young kids might want to touch the photo, or bright rooms with lots of windows or glare.


ACRYLIC FACEMOUNT
WITH LINEN LINER AND HANDFINISHED ITALIAN ROMA FRAME (YOUR CHOICE OF 8 FRAMES)


This is our most premium option. It has the same image quality as our acrylic facemounts, and in addition, it comes with a handfinished 4 inch Italian ROMA frame and a 3 inch linen liner. The frame is available in a range of finishes and colors (click here to see the available finishes) and the linen liner is available in black or white. The photo size on the site refers to the internal dimensions of the photo, and the ROMA frame and liner adds 6-7 inches to each side (12-14 inches total to the height and the width) so please bear this in mind when choosing the size. Due to the large number of framing options available, we will contact you after placing your order to confirm your linen liner color and frame style selection.

FRAME OPTIONS

FRAMES
FOR PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINTS


We use beautiful hardwood matte Studio Moulding frames for our photographic prints. Spacers are used to separate the photo from the acrylic glass.

The frames are available in either black or white. For our 13x19" smaller photos, the frames are 1 3/16" wide. For our larger photos (24x36" and larger) we use a 2 3/4" frame.

Additionally, all photos are printed with a white border. The width of the border varies by photo. Typically, they range from approximately 1.5" for the 13x19" photos, up to 2" for 40x60" photos.


FRAMES
FOR ACRYLIC FACEMOUNTS WITH LINEN LINERS


This is our most premium option and features Italian ROMA frames. ROMA is the most exclusive frame maker in the world. They use only the highest quality hardwoods and still make their frames the old fashioned way, finishing them by hand.

Here you can see the frames which are available in a range of finishes and colors. They range from 2.75 inch to 4 inch in width.The linen liner is available in black or white. The linen liner is a thick mat board, covered in stretched linen, for a very premium look. The linen liner is 3 inches wide. In total, this premium option will add 6-7 inches to each side of the final photo, 12-14 inches total. That will be in addition to the width of the image, so please bear this in mind when ordering. For example, a 40x60 inch image, with 4" ROMA frame and 3" linen liner will be 54x74 inches total (7 inches added to each side, left/right/top/bottom).

Due to the large number of framing options available, we will contact you after placing your order to confirm your linen liner color and frame style selection from the options here.

Lastly, due to our scale, we are able to offer these premium ROMA frames at a price significantly lower than what most frame shops charge for ROMA frames, roughly $1000 less on the larger sizes.

SIZES

Below are the typical sizes for most of our photos. Some medium format and large format photos have a different aspect ratio, and will be offered in sizes that may be slightly different than these listed below due to their different aspect ratios (e.g. 4x5 instead of 2x3). Likewise, panoramic photos will be offered in different sizes.

If you're looking for a custom size, we can accommodate custom sizes as well. Please click here to request a custom size.

MEGAS


MEGAs are our series of large format, ultra high resolution images that can be printed up to 50 feet (15 meters) wide. They're some of the most detailed images ever captured. Click here to see how they're created.

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

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. If you'd like to discuss a custom MEGA, please call 310-853-3564 or email art@pacificcoast.gallery.


PANORAMIC PHOTOS


Panoramic photos come in a variety of sizes and aspect ratios which vary by the photo. Our most popular sizes are 25 x 70 inches (62 x 178 cm) and 30 x 80 inches (76 x 203 cm). If you don't see the size you're looking for, please contact us and we'll be happy to create a custom size for you.


CUSTOM SIZES


Most images can be cropped to custom sizes to fit your individual space. Depending on the resolution of the source image, larger image sizes may be available as well.

COLOR OR BLACK & WHITE. STANDARD OR MUTED.

CHOOSE YOUR COLOR (OR NOT)


People often ask photographers if they prefer to shoot in black & white or color. To this question, we say yes.

Turns out we like both. And most of our images work well in both the color and black & white versions, so we've decided to do something very unusual - let you decide. Hey, it's your wall, your house, and your vibe, so it only seems fair that you get to choose.

The vast majority of our images are available as either color or black and white (a few don't seem to work one way or the other, and those are just available in one color option). You can specify if you want the color or black and white version when you place the order.


STANDARD OR MUTED


In the last ten years or so, with the prevalence of Instagram and mobile phone photography, app-based filters have become common, and many people now have a preference for more muted, desaturated, lower contrast photos - ones that look like an Instagram filter has been applied.

Some photographers don't care for this, and want their unadulterated vision to be the one and only version of their art. We take the opposite view. The way we see it, the photographer's vision is the first 80% (the subject, composition, lighting etc), and as for the final 20%, we think you should be in control. It's your house after all - your decor and your personal style. We don't live there, so why should we dictate the final presentation of the photo?

That's why, in addition to letting you choose between a color or black & white version, we are one of the first galleries in the world to also let you choose the standard version or the muted version, which resembles an Instagram filter - more muted, slightly desaturated and with less contrast. In your house, you get to dial in your paint color, your carpet and your couch, so why shouldn't you get to dial in your art as well?


MUSEUM QUALITY COMES STANDARD

RESOLUTION & DETAIL

We are one of the leading galleries in the US specializing in super high-resolution large format photos, some with resolutions over two gigapixels (2000 megapixels), roughly 80 times the resolution of a normal photo. They can be printed at wall-filling sizes and remain tack sharp with incredible detail. Click here to read more about how we create our MEGAs.

INCREDIBLE LUMINOSITY

We offer two print styles: traditional photographic paper prints on a museum quality baryta paper, and bolder acrylic facemounts which are printed on a unique paper that contains Iridium particles. The Iridium is highly reflective and gives the facemounted images a 3D quality and exceptional luminosity - they almost appear backlit.

HAND PRINTED

Every one of our photos is custom hand printed by a master printer with over 30 years of printing experience, on either the luminous paper with Iridium for our acrylic facemounts, or a museum quality thick 310gsm paper for our traditional photographic prints. This gives them the look and feel of a traditional fiber based print, with creamy whites and deep, velvety blacks.

HANDCRAFTED FRAMING

All of our framed prints are handcrafted, using premium hardwood frames. Our top-end framed acrylic facemounts come with Roma frames which are handfinished in Italy and are the highest quality frames available in the world today. We also offer TruLife, the most advanced acrylic available - it virtually eliminates reflections, is scratch-resistant and repels dust.

MUSEUM QUALITY (EVEN ON THE BACK)

For our acrylic facemounts, we go to the extreme step of using an expensive Roma frame as the back floatmount frame (rather than a metal frame or cheaper composite wood), as they're made from Italian hardwoods and resist bending or bowing with changes in temperature and humidity. If we put this much care into the back of the photo that no one will ever see, you can rest assured we put even more love into the image itself.

ARCHIVAL UP TO 200 YEARS

Our traditional photographic prints are printed on a museum quality archival baryta paper, which is rated to 200 years of longevity. Our acrylic facemounts are rated to be archival for 120 years. They also feature a high grade 95% UV blocking acrylic to prevent fading or color shifting from light exposure.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS HAVE TO SAY

"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."

"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."

Michael C.

Redondo Beach, CA

"My experience with Pacific Coast Gallery has been nothing short of exceptional.

The works that I chose were delivered in a timely manner and the framing was just as I ordered.

Perfect."

"We take great pride in designing our clients' homes with original, thoughtful and interesting pieces. Every project is a new canvas, and we start all over with the same intention. Matt's photography captures the beauty of nature, travel and the lifestyle of the globe with an artistic and reverential eye. His photography based on his community and travels are intelligent, creative and original.

Pacific Coast Gallery is easy to work with and there are myriad ways the photographs can be produced for your installation. They are so easy to work with and I enjoy sending clients in to see what captures their eye. This is a wonderful gallery and I highly recommend working with them on your next project."

Julie Gelsey, Interior Inspirations

"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. "

Allyson Hicks, Allyson Hicks Design

"I have clients from Los Angeles to New York and Pacific Coast Gallery has a range of amazing, high quality images to suit my clients' wide range of tastes. I love everything from their cool 1970s beach photos to their super bright and sharp modern landscape photos to their FLOWs with a global (Peru, Morocco, China) flair. Their quality and attention to detail is beyond compare; my clients are always impressed by the sharpness of the prints and the high quality of the handcrafted framing"
