FAQ

Why are you a print studio?

Life is precious and fleeting. Memories that matter and bring us joy, need to be brought to life. So what happens when we grow up in a society of picture takers but not photo printers? We get a disconnect. Photo printing brings those moments back into our lives and they are tangible and easily accessible. They are shared when printed. They give children a sense of security and belonging when the photos are displayed throughout their own home.

When something lives in the digital world, it is easily scrolled past, or swiped away and forgotten forever. Digital photos live a ghostly existence.
We experience digital photos like a dream. Just as a dream vanishes when we wake up, a digital photo vanishes as we scroll past it or close the file. But as a print, your photograph becomes part of the real world and a part of your life.

An ever-changing sea of digital images is part of your daily landscape. Images pound you like waves, only to disappear once they’ve made contact. They exhaust you as they hit all day long. You live in a chaotic world where you are most likely to forget what is important in life.
You should print photos that inspire you and call you to a good life. The portraits you hang can remind you of who is important in life. Even the landscape you print can calm and inspire you in tough moments.

Also you can never say for sure if your files are safe Because life changes all the time, and so does software
File applications change all the time – how do you know you’ll be able to access your files in 20 or 30 years? Storage, cloud systems – all of that will change. Google may be ubiquitous now, but who knows what’s around the corner?

And what we do know about photos printed on photo paper is that they last! We have photographs that are still around 150 years after they were printed.

Where are you based?

My studio is based on Waiheke Island in NZ and I do most of my work here and sometimes come over to Auckland which is just a 30min ferry ride away.

How many photographs will we see?

I choose the very best from your photo shoot and work on them in post production. I bring out the best in each photograph by using my own editing style. The number of images that I edit and you will view is 25.

When will we see our photos?

Your photos will be ready two-three weeks after the shoot takes place. I will invite you into my Waiheke studio for a viewing of your images where you can make a print order from your images.

Do you come off Waiheke for shoots?

Yes, I come off Waiheke for shoots in Auckland or beyond. I love the way my creativity is tested in new surroundings.

I can travel if you are further away from Auckland.

New locations inspire me so that's not a problem and I am quick to suss out good opportunities for what would make a great capture on camera.

Can I buy digital files?

Yes, but don't forget that you get the digital file with each of your print purchases of the same size at no extra cost.

If you just want a digital file on its own without the print it costs $600 per single digital file and $5000 for the edited collection of 25 images.

Do I have to order prints?

No, you don't have to order anything but your photographs will be archived after two weeks and removed after a year. There is a $250 recovery charge to make your shoot active again.
