PHOTOS TELL A STORY
Photos are stories. They have recorded time, things, people, occurrences, and developments. How pleasing to let photos tell a story, or to illustrate a timeline or a generation. This can be all-embracing or a brief outline.
I will help you on your way with pleasure, or create with you an overview, possible further developed as a poster or a book, whether or not with written out texts. Or a timeline on a wall with framed photographs. We can do the research together, or I can do it alone (within a clear agreed framework). If photos need to be scanned, then I can take care of that for you. And hanging the framed photos and other family matters, I do that too!
Do you want to make a start on a photo story with me: Let’s first get acquainted by telephone; there is no charge. After that we can discuss and inventorize the objective and the options at your place or in my studio. My hourly rate is € 75 (including VAT). For travel time longer than a half-hour, I add a small sum for travel costs.
a book or a collage from your photos – A FAMILY STORY!
A photo book is generally the goal of organizing the photos. Finally a book full of stories. What pleasure it gives to be working on it, and how wonderful and cherished the finished book becomes. A beautiful book that lasts for generations. Take the first step to begin. I can help you organizing the photos and defining the objective of the photo book; it often leads to a much easier decision process. If you like, Í will make the book (either physical or digital). Maybe a yearbook, a book of your pet, or of your travels? Or a book with a complete life history; I have made several of them for clients. Culling and sorting photos, gathering stories and data, scanning and placing, or paste the analog photos in a book. My clients are so happy with the books! I can take it all off your hands; give me the old photobooks and the boxes with photos, and I get to work – of course with the necessary consultation. I also make books of clients’ digital photos remotely. Because of my membership of The Photo Managers I also have clients abroad!
A collage of a particular event or time is also a nice way to ensure that photos are not left unused. I have also made a great many of these in my lifetime. With a graphic design background, I can make attractive compositions. And there are many other options. For example, when my son celebrated his 30th birthday, I made a digital mosaic of a map of the world (a fun job). This was built up of 30 x 30 digital photos (30 photos for each year of his life), a proportion of which I had to scan. I had the whole printed by a professional photographer, and this makes a wonderful final result.
