New Search Update

There is now a dropdown “Search Type” with options of “normal” (set as default) and “bib mode”. This replaces the previous “Search Type” of automatically entering into bib mode if the custom search instructions contained “number”. We’ve set all current values to match the prior functionality so if your custom instructions contained “number” then we ...
Freelancing

Freelancing

Freelancing is becoming more and more popular. The likelihood is that we, as photographers, do our fair share of freelancing. But do we rely on other freelancers to enhance our business, freeing up our time to spend on business-critical matters?

Moodboard: October Weddings

Moodboard: October Weddings

October weddings are lovely. They have that wonderful golden light, red and orange tints and of course, the iconic pumpkin and autumn leaves to play with.  We love how October weddings symbolise the change from summer weddings to winter weddings.

Why You Need An Online Gallery, Even If You’re Not Selling Online

Why You Need An Online Gallery, Even If You’re Not Selling Online

It has become increasingly popular for photographers, specialising in certain genres, to conduct in-person sales. Generally, those that conduct in-person sales specialise in work that is more one-to-one. This tends to work very well, as you are tapping into the emotion of the subject. However, there’s still a definite benefit for uploading those images to an online gallery ...

Newsletters

Newsletters

Newsletters drop into my inbox far too frequently. Many go unread, but there are few which I always read – either right away, or I store in a safe place for reading later. The word on the marketing street for the last few years has been content, content and more content. This is a catch-all ...

Moodboard: October

Moodboard: October

As Anne of Green Gables said; “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers”. The colours are beautiful, everything is becoming warm and cosy and there’s just a hint of a chill in the air.  We love the appearance of reds, oranges and yellows in almost everything – from nature to clothes ...
Moodboard: September Family

Moodboard: September Family

September family portraits. They are full of golden light, sunspots, the first falling leaves and a little bit of childhood magic. We love the transition to cosy clothes in September family portraits and the appearance of richer hues. This works so well with the changing colours in nature. The trees changing from green to yellow, ...
