Palace Restaurant by James Maher

Posted on Dec 21, 2010 in Photo News

James Maher had dinner at the Palace Restaurant on 57th street, and took the time to grab a few shots of my prints on the walls.  Nice because I never did do a decent job of it. Although people always promise to take a shot of the prints after they’ve been framed and hung – it’s rare that they remember. It’s a two story restaurant, and I believe there are about 40 – 50 prints. This was done through an interior decorator, so it was pretty easy for me. They did the matting and framing, and all I had to do was the printing. And in general the interior decorators are thrilled with the high quality product they receive.

Here’s what he came up with.  It is hard to do since it’s a pretty busy restaurant.  This is the shot I like the best from what he sent me. Of course – it’s that outrageous nude.

    Thanks Nantz. My stuff is really all over the place, but it seems more real when you actually see it in the setting.

    Yeah shots weren’t the best since the place was packed and so I just went quickly with people looking at me weird. Luckily I have no shame.

    It’s fun to see so many of your prints together at the same time. Excellent print quality.

    Excellent Dave, that must be very gratifying seeing so many of your prints together like that.

    The truth? It’s the sale that makes me feel good.

    True, I get a lot of pleasure shooting and printing. But when someone places a nice juicy order ESP. For new images – that’s what gives me that warm and fuzzy feeling.

    An eternal eat-in gallery show that they pay YOU for. Excellent. What size are the large prints?

    Largest are 30 inches long by 23. In other words as big as I could go on the epson 7800 which has a 24 inch carriage.
