Why would photo prints matter in this day and age? Digital technology offers us a wealth of options when it comes to storing data. I mean the size of external hard drives and memory cards are simply amazing, and I don’t know where I would be without DropBox or Google Drive! BUT… is that what our photos are? Simply data to be stored away?
Photo prints are artifacts that literally giving an artistic physical life to your memories. There is a deep satisfaction of seeing your images in front of you, touching the quality of the finish and feeling the weight of the paper. Knowing that a simple glitch could wipe away everything you have is terrifying; knowing that your physical prints are safe on archival paper is a whole new experience! They will literally outlive you, something we can’t say about digital data on our personal computers.
“Yeah, I like photo prints too. But why should I order mine through you as my photographer? Walmart is just around the corner.” Some people want the control of being able to have their own images printed, some don’t. That’s why I do offer a signed Print Release that you can present to a third party printer, but only for images up to 10″ wide. Why? Well…
Peace of mind.
What happens when you order a pricey canvas or 16×24 print, and it comes to you too dark or greenish in color? WHOA. No no no. We don’t need that drama. When you order photo prints through me, every image is personally viewed and approved before it arrives at your home, and any images I don’t feel are up to snuff are replaced at my cost. I even have nifty tools like computer screen color calibrators and have done a thorough research on what print labs offer. You can rest assured that the art you purchase is of a supreme quality.
You will spend one evening selecting your images and deciding what products you want. After that you are done, all you have to do is hang them up when they arrive. You don’t go through the hassle of organizing, re-sizing and ordering photo books. There is no procrastinating and forgetting to back up the files when that computer crashes. Or realizing it’s been 2 years and you still haven’t ordered prints. I do it all in a timely manner that saves you so much stress.
Access to my Expertise.
I will guide you through what size will work the best for the photo print you pick. Some images will work better as a custom size rather than standard. Some images will loose their appeal if printed in standard sizes such as 16×20. Sometimes 16×24 is a better option.
I take my skills seriously and consider my time with you important and a blessing. My job to create stunning imagery doesn’t end when I send you digital images! I value the trust and time you give to me by continuing our time together in ordering photo prints.
So, ready to hold those images in your hands?
