With all photographs, a little care taken in preserving your photographs will give them a long life. All colour dyes change over time, but the few simple precautions outlined below will keep the photographs in good condition longer.



Storing your photographs in photo albums protects them from both airborne contaminants and light assuring them the longest life. I recommend using acid-free, archival sleeves that are commonly available from camera shops and other retailers. Follow the points below to maximise the pleasure your photographs will bring you for a long time.

  • Avoid handling photographs. If unavoidable - handle by the edges only.
  • Store your photographs away from extreme temperatures, high humidity, and bright lights
  • Don't display or store your photographs outdoors.
  • Don't store your photographs where they are exposed to chemicals.
  • Keep your unprotected photographs away from sources of ozone, such as computer monitors and TV's, air cleaners or other sources of high voltage electricity.
  • When framing your photo, avoid doing so when humidity is high, as condensation may form behind the glass. Store your print in a photo album or plastic sleeve until the humidity drops.




All prints are copyright and may not be reproduced by any means. Even if you are in the photo it does not give you the automatic right to reproduce professional prints. If you do require to reproduce photos for any reason, please let me know and I will quote you for the full size files with full release.

I keep copies of all the negatives and electronic files in an archival system, unless specifically requested otherwise. This allows you to reorder prints in future if required. I pride myself on providing personalised service at a competitive price. If there is something that I can improve, please let me know.
