Nashville Tennessee Skyline Downtown Photography Landmark Canvas Print Livingroom Bedroom Sunset Wall Art Cityscape
Hi. My name is Craig Alexander and I am a skyline photographer.
6 years ago, after a 90 hour work week, I drove into Nashville , walked across one of the longest pedestrian bridges in the world and shot a skyline of the city just after sunset. I sent the image off to the printer and a roll of 3 raw canvases arrived about a week later. (This is the other, dark blue skyline you'll see in this nashville collection).
I put it onto a wooden frame and hung it up in the gallery I was working in, it sold out in 48 hours.
I ordered 11 more and they sold out within the week. This launched my career. I continued working 80/90 hour week and continued travelling the world building my portfolio. Paris, NYC, London, Venice, LA, Florida, DC, Denver, Montreal, Chicago, Quebec, Ireland, Toronto and many more.
But I always intended to come back to Nashville one day, and I did about a month ago.
Last night I went out and shot the same image, but updated for 2019, reflecting all the growth that's happened in this beautiful place in the past 6 years.
There are 3 ways to print these images, glossy paper printing, metallic style printing and canvas printing.
1) Glossy Paper Prints are professional quality glossy paper prints. They have a nice sharp and glossy finish and are only available in 8 in x 10 in. They are designed to be placed in a frame, which can be purchased separately (starting at a few dollars at your local dollar store or Walmart).
3) Canvas Printing is a well-known, high-end way of displaying photographs. This also has the advantage of not needing a frame. They come "gallery wrapped". This is a high quality canvas, stretched and stapled onto a set of 1.5 inch deep wooden stretcher-bars that give it shape, in the same way an oil painting is typical stretched. There are no staples or ugly lines visible on the sides (very important). It comes out of the shipping box finished and ready to hang with a simple nail in the wall.
Once the stretched canvas print arrives and is in your hands, you then have the option of framing it locally if you decide you want that look, instead of the no-frame "gallery wrap" look.
Even $5 million homes commonly have unframed work on their walls, depending on the decor style in that home.
The delivery time for printing, packing and shipping on a customized canvas print is around 7 business days.
