The Story Behind This Shot:

I captured ‘Sailor’ on my visit to French Polynesia in August 2015. I took one of the few ferries across from the main island to the island of Moorea. This must have been one of the windiest boat rides I have ever done! It was close to impossible to hold on to the rail when I spotted this sailing boat heading for Moorea in front of us. Not only did he look like he was about to fly away with the next wind gust, Moorea looked like an island from death too with storm brewing over the tropical mountain peaks. Luckily it cleared up before I got there and I didn’t see a drop of rain after.

Captured with the Olympus E-M1 and M.Zuiko 12-40mm f/2.8 Pro. The E-M1 being so lightweight and weather sealed was really essential for this shot. The winds were blasting and rain and saltwater was hitting my face. No problem for the E-M1!


Read below for more information on the print and how it’s made. It’s a rather cool and unique process and the wood texture definitely adds great character to the shot!



Through their unique process of printing photographs directly on wood, they create high quality images that utilize the natural wood grain of each piece of Baltic Birch Wood.  The inks used are not only extremely durable, but they are also very transparent the lighter the ink the more wood grain you’ll be able to see.  Have a look at the image to the right and you’ll be able to see the lighter colors bring out the grain, while the darker colors block the grain completely.  You’re also able to see the entire tint of the image change slightly, and this is because we’re printing onto a natural piece of wood.


Baltic birch wood is used, which is produced in the good ol’ US of A.  Baltic birch is a great wood, it has a beautiful grain which shows through each and every wood print that’s printed.  The wood is harvested for construction purposes only, which means that the natural forest is not harmed in the manufacturing of the wood panels.  The wood is constructed by laminating layers of birch veneer together, making our product 3/4″ thick.  The side of the wood is then beveled at a 45 degree angle which gives the piece a nice dimension.  Classic Wood Prints have also designed a hanging system which makes it simple and easy to install.
