Supermoon at Tilikum Crossing (2014)

Portland, Oregon

One new and prominent feature in Portland, Oregon is the Tilikum Crossing, which is near the Marquam Bridge. I spent a night there under the Marquam Bridge to photograph the Supermoon in Portland. Tilikum Crossing aka Bridge of the People is a bridge constructed to span the Willamette River in Portland, Oregon. The crossing opened in the fall of 2015 and is designed to withstand a large, powerful Earthquake.

TriMet selected the name of the bridge in April 2014 from a list of four finalists chosen by the public. Tilikum is a Chinook Jargon word meaning people, tribe, or family, and the name is intended to honor the Multnomah, Cascade, Clackamas, and other Chinookan peoples who lived in the area as long as 14,000 years ago. The Tilikum name also references the pervasive use of Chinook Jargon in Portland’s first half century in the frequent trade interactions between pioneers and Native Americans.

This fine art photograph was taken at blue hour with a large telephoto lens using precise planning and execution to get the moon perched in the perfect spot above the bridge.

Fine Art Paper Print

Supermoon at Tilikum Crossing (2014) print

Your artwork is printed on beautiful Epson Cold Press Bright White Fine Art Paper. This is by far my favorite paper print to use for fine art printing. It has a really nice rag texture and presents details in a stunning way. By default, I mount each print on 2mm styrene, which makes them ready to matte and frame. Please note that once you receive the print, you will need to be extremely careful with your method of handling the artwork so it is not damaged. Check out this video on this particular medium and why I think it looks so good!

ChromaLuxe Metal Prints are a fantastic budget-conscious option that preserves high details and color-rendition without sacrificing on quality. Each print's edges are finished to provide a smooth presentation and all four edges are rounded to prevent snags and cuts. 

My ChromaLuxe metal prints are finished with a float mount system on the reverse with a z-bar for effortless and secure hanging on delivery. No exterior framing is required. 

ChromaLuxe’s archival qualities, image brilliance, and durability make it an excellent all-around choice.

The process of printing on this medium can rarely result in defects in the print medium that are barely noticeable. This is not something that can be controlled in the lab.

TrueLife Acrylic Fine Art Masterpiece

Supermoon at Tilikum Crossing (2014) print

Your fine art is printed on FujiFlex Crystal Archive - a polyester-based silver halide material which creates stunning museum-quality color prints. This medium shows the full depth and color range as I experienced and looks absolutely stunning. 

Once printed, the FujiFlex is placed behind TruLife acrylic and on top of another acrylic archival substrate. A special adhesive called Diasec is used to bond the fine art print to the acrylic. Unlike other methods of adhesion used by other photographers, Diasec is engineered to never separate, bubble, peel, or fail, so you can know your artwork will last several lifetimes. Also unlike other acrylic prints from other photographers, this mounting method prevents bowing of the print which is caused by expansion and contraction of the acrylic. 

Your fine art is Face Mounted on lens-grade optically clear 1/8″ TruLife Anti-Reflective acrylic. This revolutionary product delivers the highest-resolution viewing experience of photographic artwork available today. TruLife acrylic is also scratch resistant, helping preserve the life of the print.

Ambient and directed light that shines through the face of these prints is accentuated by the acrylic glass, creating a 3-D or back-lit feel that will absolutely astonish you. 

The Acrylic Face Mount comes ready to hang with a z-bar hanging system. An acrylic face mount piece of art will look great against most any wall type. 

* Free shipping for all U.S. orders! Please contact me for international shipping fees. Due to the meticulous production process and availability of the high quality materials used in this acrylic artwork, please allow 6-8 weeks for production and delivery.
