Loxley’s New Shipping Charges

Loxley Colour Lab will be increasing their shipping charges from £1.99 to £2.99 on orders from 14 March 2016! This increase is due to £1.99 no longer covering the cost of delivery and packaging. In our opinion, £2.99 is still a great deal as orders made directly through Loxley have shipping charges costing £4.20.

Working With A Second Shooter

Working With A Second Shooter

Happy Monday everyone! As the first daffodils start to rear their heads we can’t help but turn our minds to spring. And what does spring mean? The start of wedding season. It has now become popular amongst wedding photographers to work with a second photographer, also known as a ‘second shooter’, at almost every wedding they photograph. So is working with a second shooter for you? And how should you handle working together?


Why You Should Share Your Images With Vendors?

As a wedding or event photographer, you have an amazing opportunity to use your skills and talent to help other business owners. Every business, regardless of industry or size, needs professional images. On a wedding day or at a corporate event there are dozens of vendors who have played a role. Often vendors take a few images of their hard work themselves, either with a basic camera or a phone but their images couldn’t match the quality yours could provide for them.
