Peter's World

"The Guardian"

Part of a new range of black & white prints which I've created to evoke a nostalgic feeling, with subtle tones & vintage style framing. Available on metallic canvas which is created from an optimal blend of metallic, silver & pearlescent surface finishes to portray exceptional detail. I love it!

"Glowing in the first light at sunrise, this ancient pohutukawa has been guarding this beautiful bay for hundreds of years & provides a colourful show of it’s crimson blooms at the end of each year. I captured 28 separate frames & stitched this together to create a total file of 2.4Gb, but I was lucky to capture the last frames before the sun ducked behind clouds! This image exhibits extraordinary detail & is ideally suited for very large installations, such as the bathrooms shown above (departures security hall, Auckland International Airport).”

“When Peter delivered our pieces, we couldn't believe the incredible detail. The images on his website - impressive as they are - really didn't do our prints justice!“
