Last week I did a pop up gallery at one of Brisbane’s newest riverside office towers. This is new ground for me, I’m used to having my own gallery and attending art fairs and markets but setting up for a short period with massive amounts of traffic was a great experience.


Ben Messina Large Canvas Prints

I thought I would show some of the custom work that we do. These 4 canvas panoramas each measure  175cm x 70cm, they have been cropped into a chunky format to fit exactly into recesses that our customer supplied the dimensions of and were printed and stretched by us in house. The images are from the left Rainforest Arch(Fuji GX 6×17), Boulders Beach(Fuji GX6x17), Queen Mary Falls(Fuji GX 6×17) and Palm Cove(5d M2 Stitched Image). I’ll post some images of these installed in our customer’s house at a later date.

Kewarra Beach Sunrise

This image is from Far North Queensland, I spent a couple of weeks shooting images around Cairns over Christmas and New years. 10 image stitch with the 5d Mk2 and the 50mm 1.4

Colors of Mossman

One of my favorite places in North Queensland, Mossman Gorge is amazing for it’s rich colors. I had to wait all day for the light to be soft enough and for all of the tourists to clear.

Coastal Showers

Captured off the coast of North Queensland between Cairns and Port Douglas, I watched these clouds all day, around sunset the showers rolled in creating nice soft light.
