Featured Local Artist : Los Angeles Photographer Pascal Shirley

How to frame large format photography prints

Featuring custom seasonal art by Pascal Shirley


In January, California is a place where you can visit the snow and surf in the same day. Pascal Shirley is a California based photographer residing in Los Angeles who captures the varying landscapes of Los Angeles and beyond. He does his own printing as well as offers classes on how to shoot and print your own work. He also offers a unique Art on Loan framed print feature, where he creates rotating seasonal art for a single client to cycle through as the year moves on, even though the seasons may not.

For Pascal's pieces we went with two frames about the same size that were strong enough and with a big enough width and depth to hold the large Plexi Glass size. Our Matte White #2611 and Matte Black #79371 which are each approximately 1.5" wide and 1 1/4" deep.

Pascal's large format prints are framed with spacers so the image is set back from the plexi glass. (Plexi Glass, also known as Acrylic Glass, is safer because it is shatter proof.)

We love framing photography jobs and especially strikingly large format pieces, and the impact they have when they are framed up on a wall. Photography prints are most commonly done up in a simple matte frame, usually white or black, allowing the shot to jump out at you in all its detail.

Need a framed certificate for Tom Cruise to present at an event? No problem! 

We framed this certificate in thirty minutes for our friend at Universal Studios on Friday to be given to the cast of The Mummy 2017 on Saturday for a press event in Hollywood on May 20th.

The Hollywood and Highland Takeover event celebrates "The Mummy Day" with a 75 foot sarcophagus movie replica erected under the Grauman's Chinese Theatre archway.

The cast poses for a picture holding the certificate for the city of Los Angeles that reads:

"On behalf of the City of Los Angeles and the 13th Council District, I would like to commemorate THE MUMMY Day 2017.  We welcome THE MUMMY stars Tom Cruise, Annabelle Wallis, Sofia Boutella and Jake Johnson—as well as director Alex Kurtzman and all of the fans gathered here today.  As we proudly reveal The Mummy’s sarcophagus—the largest single vertical structure ever assembled at the Hollywood and Highland gateway—we celebrate the launch of Universal Pictures’ thrilling twist on a timeless legend.  We welcome you all to one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations."
