CREATING A CUSTOM LAS VEGAS PHOTOGRAPHY GALLERY
Late in 2016, I was contacted by Helga & Vlajko, potential collectors whom I now consider friends, to inquire about my EXPERIENCE LUXURY service. Helga & Vlajko had recently purchased an incredible 5,209 sq ft home located inside the The Ridges in Summerlin, an elite gated community in Las Vegas, Nevada. It is set against the truly amazing natural backdrop of Red Rock Canyon.
The builder of their new home had great vision and designed it with art in mind, fitting the entire home with gallery lighting and beautiful display spaces. Helga & Vlajko wanted to fill their home with beautiful photographic art and began their search for the right artist.
Vlajko personally met with a famous Las Vegas fine art gallery to inquire about the purchase of a number of pieces for their home. Ultimately Vlajko found the personality and character of the artist hosted by the gallery to be unpleasant at best. His search turned to the internet for alternatives with similar artistry, stumbling across my work in the process. Over the next few weeks Helga & Vlajko combed through the Limited Edition Collections I offer through my website which functions as an online fine art photography gallery. They were excited to find countless examples of amazing landscape and nature photography to choose from. After deciding they had found the art and artist they were seeking, they reached out to me via telephone to learn more about me and discuss their vision for their new home. After exchanging thoughts about my work, my background as an artist and the details of their project we agreed that this was a great match and the three of us were extremely excited to get started.
THE BENEFITS OF WORKING DIRECTLY WITH AN ARTIST FOR FINE ART IN LAS VEGAS
Fast forward to a few weeks later. I was stepping off a plane in Las Vegas and on my way to meet Helga & Vlajko at their home. We spent more time in person discussing their ultimate vision & hopes for the project as they graciously gave me a tour of their beautiful estate. We moved from room to room, discussing artwork placement and dimensions that would best fit each space taking into account furniture and other elements that had yet to be delivered. After identifying a total of 25 display locations and the dimensions of each space we wrapped it up and headed to their current home to discuss the project in more detail and get down to the fun part of all this...choosing the pieces for each area! In the end we wanted to build a personalized gallery that would be better than any Las Vegas fine art photography gallery
The smallest space we identified was 30" x 45" with various areas and orientations up to and including the main entry where a staggering 74" x 116" framed piece would be showcased, impressing and inspiring everyone who enters, beckoning them to explore the remaining pieces throughout every room in the home. Above the main entry, a 40' tall gallery wall would be turned into their very own fine art gallery, showcasing three 84" pieces from my Japanese Maple Tree collection captured in the winter, spring, and fall.
Once these 4 main fine art photography pieces were decided on, we moved through the rest of the rooms with Helga & Vlajko each choosing their favorites along the way until we had made the final selections. With the final 25 pieces chosen, I bid my new friends farewell and boarded a plane back home.
The following day I made final edits to the images and placed them into production with my print shop. Each piece was hand finished and backed with ROMA recessed handmade Italian framing. The largest of the pieces was finished with an external ROMA Dark Ash Tabbachino frame and Linen liner. Thirty days later the art was hand delivered to the residence and I was back in the air, returning to Nevada to personally oversee the installation of their personal fine art photography collection
Since then, Helga & Vlajko have continued to add even more fine art pieces of mine to their collection. Now with 35 total pieces of mine on the walls of their home that really does rival any Las Vegas fine art gallery. Please have a look below at some of their choices for this project!
Beautiful nature photography connects with almost everyone who sees it and in the midst of our sometimes hectic daily lives, offers a reprieve, relieving stress and creating a conversation piece in any home or office. I truly enjoy sharing my work with others and working with collectors one on one, turning visions for their homes and offices into reality. To learn more about my work, the design services that I offer and everything else you may want to know about my artwork and the museum quality limited edition fine art that I offer, please take a visual journey through my online galleries. Thank you for taking the time to read my summary of this incredible project.
Most of all, thank you Helga & Vlakjo for the incredible experience of being able to turn their home into a veritable photography gallery (and now personal friendship!)
The Price You Pay For Las Vegas Art & Photography
There are many beautiful art galleries in Las Vegas located in places like The Venetian, Grand Canal & Caesars Palace. Retail space in Las Vegas is incredibly high and as a result, artists and gallery owners are forced to pass these costs on to you, the consumer. Purchasing fine art photography from me allows you to own the same high end gallery quality art without the gallery price. In fact, you can outfit an entire home or business for the same cost as a handful of pieces picked up in a Vegas gallery.
