About My Business My business began as a hobby and has taken off. I started out doing portrait photography and was getting frustrated at not being able to display my work comprehensively. Along came Blurb and transformed all that!
I have created over 100 books for customers since I began. I started out with my own photography but demand has resulted in my compiling customers' own travel photographs from all over the world, their old family photographs, birthday parties, wedding receptions, special events, creating luxurious coffee table books that will be treasured for life.
In addition to photo books, I have created for clients recipe books, poetry books, books to promote business for artists and jewellers, portfolios for building contractors .... new and ever increasing areas!
Areas of Expertise To me a book is a work of art. As you turn from page to page, each must hold its own but also balance with the one it stands with.
Balance makes perfect and it is a skill that is learned from instinct, experience and an artistic eye.
Using your own photographs, I can create a book of images that will read like a thousand words, finding aspects in photographs that add depth and character, laying out the images to flow from page to page.
