The short answer is yes, currently I cannot photograph due to health reasons. I can offer recommendations of other photographers similar to my style if you require a referral.
I am focusing on is offering albums, fine art prints and framed fine art prints. Custom mentoring sessions are also on offer for those wanting advice on things such as using their camera and understanding how to frame photos. My extensive marketing experience can also help other small businesses with targeting their market and fine tuning products and services .
Before I ran my photography business full-time I completed a UTS Business degree with majors in Management and Public Relations. I also worked for a not-for-profit organisations in marketing, events and communications (RSPCA NSW, Girl Guides NSW/ACT and MS Australia) . I am returning to this not-for-profit marketing work 10 hours a week with the amazing organisation Community Minds. I am excited that I can do two things I love – creating stories through albums with my business (and help mentor others) but also work closely with the community to make a difference. If you are interested to know more about Community Minds, do not hesitate to reach out to me!
If you took the photos then yes, I am more than happy to help you make an album as long as the files are of high quality. If you would like to send me a few sample files I can let you know.
If a professional photographer or someone else took your photos then you will need to check if they are OK with me using your photos to create an album. There may be some copyright issues to discuss with them first. If this is all good then we should be right to create a beautiful keepsake album for you.
I can create albums for any occasions, it doesn’t have to be just for a wedding. Check some examples of my albums here. You can also request a full price list.
Yes, I still have a copy of your edited high resolution images 🙂 . I keep a few copies of your photos on hard disks and online as a backup. For a fee I can set up a gallery for you to download the files or if you prefer I can post you a USB. The fee will be smaller for the gallery creation.
Good question! If you have the time to dedicate to designing your own album and you have access to sending your design to a very high quality album company then you should definitely consider making your own album.
However, I have had feedback from other clients who did this with medium quality album companies and they were not happy. The spine of the album had fallen apart by the first year and the quality of the print was not good and the papers lacked thickness. Also they told me they didn’t realise how long it takes to actually design an album. One client told me it took her 30 hours all up! So if you think about how much you get paid for 30 hours of work and then add on top of that the cost of the album, I think considering an album through me is a great option. And this is just when you are taking into consideration your your time. The other consideration is quality and whether this album will last a lifetime or not. The album company I work with only offers the highest quality (archive safe) and only works directly with professional photographers and designers.
If you are curious about an album with me then please have a look at my album page here for more information and also some gorgeous examples! I can also send you an informative and image-rich PDF which will outline your different options for customisation and how we work together to get the best result for you.
I really enjoyed offering workshops many years ago but I found it a bit tricky to coordinate dates with all the participants. I also found a lot of people have specific questions to their situation. So I decided it would be more beneficial to offer one-on-one mentoring sessions instead. Your mentoring session can be about whatever you want and you can feel comfortable to ask any question you like. I have helped people with many things such as editing in Adobe Lightroom, using the camera’s manual setting and marketing advice for their small business.
Yes! I can now offer editing services – from your mobile phone photos to your DSLR photos that you have not touched since you got back from that trip 5 years ago. Let me help you get organised and finally get your photos looking the way you want with minimal effort! I know what it is like to have personal photos just sitting there waiting to be edited. If you are a professional, then you are welcome to talk to my husband, AJ about editing as his specialty is working for other wedding or portrait photographers. If he has a back log of work and I am available he can also pass your work onto me. You can contact AJ through his Facebook page AJ Edits.
Yes! I have a little studio based in my home in South West Sydney in a suburb called Picnic Point. I have many different albums and samples for you to take your time and look through. There are also gorgeous framed prints hanging on the wall to give you an idea of sizes and also the colour options. Visits to the studio are offered by appointment only.
