New 25 metre Long and 3 metre high photo installment at IGA supermarket Thirroul.

This massive 25 metre long photo has been installed at IGA supermarket Thirroul and runs the whole length of the hallway into the store. It's actually longer than the photo you can see here as I couldn't fit the whole photo in the shot. The photo is of course of the famous Sandon Point boat sheds just a short distance from the store. Unfortunetly the JPEG was printed and not the Raw file but it still went the distance. If you are in Thirroul be sure to pop in and check it out as it is one of the biggest photos ever printed in the Illawarra area. While you are there I have photos at the checkouts available to purchase, matted prints, calendars and postcards. You will find Thirroul IGA at 275 Lawrence Hargrave Drive, Thirroul.

Massive 30x45 Inch brushed metal print!

I have recently installed a massive 30x45 Inch brushed metal print into Body Dynamics at Bulli. If you would like to see what the metal product looks and feels like, the owners are happy for you to pop in and have a look at this quality Print2metal product. The address is 249 Princess Highway at Bulli, diagonally across from the Bulli Heritage Hotel. Apologies for the streak of light on the photo but with the brushed metal finish it is very difficult not to get some sort of additional light on the photo.
