Many people, photographers and non-photographers alike, are grappling with how to keep their digital (and older printed photos) organized. It is now much, much, much easier to take photos than it is to put those photos to good use. And I’m not talking about selling your photos or trying to get commercial value from them; while there is certainly a market for great photography, the vast majority of photographers these days are using their built-in phone cameras, point-and-shooters and good, pro-sumer level SLRs simply to capture moments in time in their every day life. With the proliferation of digital cameras and the viral spread of social media networks to share on, there are a lot of moments being captured and those images start to add up very quickly.
Given that most people reading this blog have lived through the massive transition from film to digital cameras, I suspect that there are countless photo collections sitting unseen in boxes, unsorted in albums or, as is the case with most digital files, sitting on hard drives in computers, rarely, if ever being looked at, felt and appreciated. There is something incredibly sad in that thought. All those memories, all those moments that mattered so much you wanted to capture it in a photograph – buried in data folders, lost in piles, neglected, forgotten.
Well, I’d like to help you change that.
As of this week my partners and I are launching a brand new service for people interested in doing something fun and real with their personal and family photos, both digital and older printed photographs. Whether you’ve got a boxful of old Polaroids, a shelf of aging photo albums barely ever touched, or just a messy hard drive full of images, we can help you create a beautiful, photo legacy that tells the story of your life or the collective stories of your family and loved ones. And by help you, I mean, do it for you so you don’t have to spend the time.
Let’s be honest, we all have the best of intentions when it comes to one day sorting our photos and producing lovely photo books with them, but how many of us ever find the time to actually do it? It’s nothing to be ashamed of. Life is busy and if yours is so full that you’ve built up a collection of photographic memories, it is no surprise you don’t have time to organize it. You’re too busy living your life – but wouldn’t it be great to have a complete, full, well-organized, beautiful collection of your photographic life to share with your friends, family and children?
If you’re interested and want to know more, please contact me today to learn more about how you can get your entire life collection of photographs organized into something you will enjoy, appreciate and cherish now and have something to leave behind for your children to enjoy and pass along as well.
