Q. Do you provide tailored wedding photography quotes, to better suit my requirements and budget?
A. Yes. The packages shown here are listed here to share popular options and give you an idea of general prices. You can tweak these or create your own photography package from scratch. Just give me a call or email, and we can take it from there to give you a free, no-obligation quote.
Q. What do you mean by copyright-free digital images, and what is the value of this?
A. By way of context: Way back when (generally pre-2005), you had little choice but to order prints, albums, and other products through the photographer as he or she held all the negatives of the images and had primary expertise for arranging good quality prints. This could get quite costly because you were paying not just for the cost of the print or album, but also for the photographer’s time and overheads. These days in this digital age you don’t need to do that. When you commission me for photography services I give you a disc of the high-resolution images as standard, which allows you to easily order high quality prints at reasonable prices and share the images with family and friends wherever they may be.
Q. Where does the name ‘Photon Photography’ come from?
A. I like to keep things simple for people, and the basic elements I operate on is providing great images for my customers. Light is my paint, the camera is my canvas, and Photoshop is my brush. The most basic element of light used to create a picture is a photon, which like the pictures it creates has an indefinitely long lifetime. ‘Photography’ meanwhile derives from the Greek words phot- for "light" and -graphos for "drawing", so Photon Photography seemed very apt.
Q. I’d like to arrange printing the images myself. Can you direct me to where I can get good quality prints and albums?
A. Sure, all part of the service. I would highly recommend PhotoBox as a good all-rounder for their selection of printed products, a mix of good value and higher quality printing, and ease of use and uploading to the site. There are others too not to forget which serves most people’s needs, such as Snapfish, Albelli, and your local print shop. Even Tesco are in the game!
