Makana by Scott Hareland
Few photographers have spent as much time in the ocean as Scott Hareland. Even fewer have produced a portfolio to rival his. He is considered one of the most talented marine life photographers in Hawaii. Scott’s enthusiasm is nurtured by a seemingly endless panorama featuring dolphins, whales, turtles, sharks and even the occasional Monk seal.
Scott is currently creating a series of fantasy undersea vistas featuring all of his favorite marine creatures in one panoramic composition. Thus “Artography” was born. “As a guy who cut his teeth when Kodak was king, digital photography has allowed me to grow to a level that I would have never dreamed possible”.
What is a Mirrored Print & Gallery Wrap?
Canvas for Gallery Wrap
Take a good look at your print. The edges are mirrored, so that, the complete image is shown on the face of the frame once it is wrapped. In other words, You don’t lose any of the artwork. Our 2½” mirrored borders, allow your finished product to have a variety of thickness up to 2” deep. Therefore, make sure you choose an experienced framer who can make the frame to the exact specs of your custom print.
Hand-made Rattan Frames
Though the design has changed over the years, we commission these Rattan frames through a small family owned company in The Philippines. Your frame is the result of trial and error of the last 20 years! Rattan is a vine-like Palm that requires forest cover in order to thrive. Rattan grows throughout the jungle for over a quarter of a mile. Its trunk can span a diameter of over two inches down to the thickness of a human hair. The harvester’s collection process is performed by hand by a simple machete. Ultimately, the rattan vine cannot survive without the forest. Rattan quickly regenerates. As a result, this method of harvesting protects the destruction of the forest.
