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. 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; there is no charge. We will discuss the objective and the options at your house, in my studio or via Skype or Zoom. My hourly rate is € 65 (including VAT) if we work together, and € 50 if I do it alone (within clear agreed limits, of course). For travel time longer than a half-hour, I add a small sum for travel costs.


a book or a collage from your photos

Making a photo book is a time-consuming business. But what pleasure it gives to be working on it, and how wonderful and cherished the finished book becomes. Take the first step to begin. I can help you in all kinds of phases. Organizing the photos and defining the objective of the photo book, often leads to a much easier decision process. Maybe a yearbook, a book of your pet, or of your travels?  If you like, I can make the book (either physical or digital) for you. Cutting and pasting, scanning and positioning – I have done a great deal in my lifetime. I also make books of clients’ digital photos remotely. Because of my membership of The Photo Managers I even 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.
