PHOTOS FINALLY SORTED
There are millions of photo prints (analogue photos) sitting in albums, shoe boxes and attics waiting to be sorted and perhaps digitized. The albums stare at you, the piles of photos prick your conscience – but the photos stay in the boxes and in the attic. Ironic when you think about it, because if you ask a person in the street what he or she would save in the event of a house fire it is always … the photos!
And trillions of digital photos are made every year, of which billions are stored on mobile phones, tablets and computers. Because they are not ‘in the way’, nothing is done with them. Help! Would you like something to be done with the photos? Eventually the computer memory will be full, or something will happen with your mobile or your tablet. And you do not want to lose the photos.
Time to start work, to sort your photos, store them in a structured way, and if you want, create something attractive with them. Do you want to do that yourself? Here are some handy photo tips.
The goal is to choose and keep the photos that you value most highly, and to safeguard them for future generations. And in particular to be able to enjoy them now. If your photographs are organized, you will enjoy them more.
I will help you with pleasure. With making an inventory, making choices, sorting, scanning, and storing in an effective way, either in boxes or in your computer. I am familiar with working with an iMac and with smart programmes to do the initial sorting. Moreover, I enjoy thinking together about a way to do more with the photos. See for example making a story. I can help companies with sorting out, augmenting, and organizing their image bank or photo library, so that the right photos are properly archived, and are accessible. Marketing and creative companies in particular benefit from an effective image bank.
Do you want to work with me to organize your photos, or let me organize them: an introductory meeting is free. My hourly fee is € 65 (including VAT) if we organize the photos together, and € 50 if I do it alone (within clear agreed limits, of course). For companies, my hourly fee starts at € 75 (excluding VAT). For a commission with an agreed and well-defined scope, I can quote a project price. For travel time longer than a half-hour, I add a small sum for travel costs.
I offer the following standard photo package for private individuals:
