Announcement   As a photographer I am fascinated by detail and by what is usually not seen. I hope to introduce the viewers of my work to a world they may have never seen before, whether because they have been moving too fast, looking in the wrong direction, or not being able to look closely enough.
Despite roots in black and white film photography, digital cameras and printers have largely taken over but not completely so.
Through involvement with a number of arts organizations, I try to promote the arts and foster artists’ skills. I am also very involved in issues relating to copyright and protecting intellectual property.
Many find they no longer have room for “art” whose only justification is beauty to be looked at. To keep art alive and relevant I have branched out from photography as a purely print medium to useful objects that are adorned with the same great art.
Because of shape and size restrictions, not all of my photographs are available in all sizes nor are they available in all media.
I hope you enjoy browsing through my collection and are able to find pieces that inspire.

About

The origins of The Vast City

A long time ago, there was a college student who lived in a big city, and he thought he owned the city. He was working on a novel about the more interesting parts of this city. The working title of this novel was "The Vast City". Many years later - after trying to live the life and dreams of a non-artist - he turned his attention to photography, an art he had first learned as a youngster. This new unfamiliar territory was strikingly reminiscent of a previous time, and the name once again seemed appropriate.

He now devotes most of his time to photography, occasionally accepting commissions and occasionally using his talents with the other half of his brain to create websites. An occupation for which he id also well suited because of his technical background.

He also prints, mats, and (as warranted) frames his own work.

Lately he has branched out to using his photography in Interior Design, with products such as throw pillows and clocks, and other useful products - tote bags, mouse pads, coffee (or tea) mugs. All featuring the same great art, just packaged in a more casual way.

Coming soon, along those same lines, will be duvet covers, shower curtains, and maybe more. The possibilities are endless.

Welcome to the Vast City Photography. We have been in the business of producing fine-art prints for over 10 years.

Photography is a passion and we look forward to sharing that with you and hope that you will find something here that you have fallen in love with.

This is a small sampling of my work. More of it can be found at my main website: www.thevastcity.net. I also have a gallery at Red Bubble (www.redbubble.com/people/bcdoherty)

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept payment through PayPal. I've found that to be the most convenient method. It's safe, secure, AND you don't have to join PayPal in order to use it.
Shipping
Shipping is via UPS. All of our prints are matted, so they are mailed flat with over-sized rigid cardboard and padding to ensure safe delivery. The prints are in plastic sleeves for further protection..

Convo me if you require expedited delivery.
Refunds and Exchanges
Our goal is satisfied customers, and we will do whatever we can to make sure you are satisfied with your purchase. If the product is damaged, we will replace it. Or if you are not satisfied with it, return it for a full refund.

All printing is hand done on heavy-weight paper with archival inks using Epson professional printers. The mats and foam core backing are acid-free materials.

Photographic prints must be kept away from direct sunlight. Framing behind glass is an excellent means of protection.
Additional policies and FAQs
Convo me if you have any additional questions or for any special orders..
