Making Photographic Books & Prints
Through photography I seek to reveal something of the beauty of the world and of the things that people do & make within it.
The people that commission me are deeply involved in the subjects they wish to have portrayed. I love to photograph the things my clients love doing and making. Some commissions that I have undertaken include photographing and producing editions for:
A five thousand acre country estate in East Anglia
A biodynamic dairy & arable farm in the Weald of Sussex
The work of a internationally renowned designer in London & Wiltshire
An historic cavalcade made from London to Maranello
The work, people and clients of an innovative technology company in London
The work and people of a young and dynamic carpentry and metalwork company in Greenwich
My photographs are presented in custom editions such as books, exhibition prints, illuminated prints and archive portfolios.
I place great importance in the presentation of these photographs. Working closely with my clients I develop, design and make unique editions for them. Some of the custom editions I have made include:
Ink Infused Aluminium Panels
Selenium Toned Silver Halide Prints on Archival Fibre Paper
Illuminated Translucent Prints
Leather Bound Books with Gilt Covers and Edges
Archive Portfolio Boxes
The designs and methods used for photographic editions seek to provide the most engaging visual and tactile experience.
Careful and considered deliberation about the process of production is undertaken with my clients. Once a set of digital and/or film-based photographs have been made from a specific project I work closely with my client to produce an edition.
Through clear discussion and presentation of ideas and mock-ups prior to the final edition, marvellous prints or books that can be treasured are assured. The costs involved are broadly discussed initially and solidified during the process. I am clear and open regarding all aspects of a client's project.
Example project stages:
Initial Discussions / Light Capture / Editing / Selection and Development / Print Tests / Edition Design / Mock-Ups / Refinement / Edition Production
