Large Photo Murals by Pentax

Recently I produced some large mural prints for a local major tourist and service centre, all taken with Pentax K3 and Pentax K5 and mix of lenses, there was lots of work to edit the right images to suit big format sizes, with murals 7.5m x 3m (Collage), 3.6m x 2.6m (Beach) and 2.8m x 2.1m (Pandanus). I've done similar images for local cafes in perplex glass, canvass and frames, but these were done on wallpaper material and have come out pretty good on colour and image quality, considering the size. It was pretty competitive to get my images in the mix, but I'm stoked I had the right coastal photos needed for the coastal tourism focussed centre.

Here a link to my web page and social media:

Well done Chris, youe images really do represent the coastal landscape down your way so I hope you pick up plenty more commissions. I particularly like that last image; I'm a sucker for clouds.

Great work!

I guess these weren't printed by your local Harvey Norman.
