Here’s a handful of favourite pages from a recent Art Book I completed for my darling clients, Alessandra and Michael. It is so beautiful and I am once again, very happy and proud of the end result.
If I get an enquiry from a person wanting ” Shoot and Burn ” I do not book the job. Shoot and Digital files only. A massive part of being a Portrait and Wedding Photographer is designing and printing albums, wall art, photos in print. My clients receive their High Resolution files once the job is complete. Once they have their proofs and albums and prints. That way I have completed the job in the style and quality I strive for, I am happy and creatively fulfilled and they get their files and own the copyright. Win win for all. It is a no brainer.
I have been doing albums for over 20 years and just because the medium in which we shoot has changed, does not mean the need for stunningly presented work has.
It makes me sad the number of people who think this no longer important. I recently shot a wedding and hanging on the wall of the groom’s parents house was a beautiful, big, timeless family portrait I had shot when he was 5 years old. I recognized it immediately, I had shot it 20 years ago !
Fact = many many people who only get their digital files from a shoot never get around to printing them. They sit on CDs, USBs and computers for years.
Anyway. Rant over. I have more albums to design and I better get back to it. I am a lucky lady to do what I love :)
