How will organization make it easier to share my photos?


Organization makes sharing easy primarily because it's now so easy to search your photos. There are generally two types of searches.

  1. to find a specific photo you know would be perfect for a project.
  2. for a range of possible photos that might relate to a particular project
Instead of scrolling endlessly in a dozen different places you'll be able to 'google' search your own photos using your own keywords to find the right photos in seconds. It's such a pleasure.




Sharing: Photobooks


A wonderful way to share your photos is via photobooks, which exist in many different forms from relatively inexpensive softcover books, easy for proud parents or grandparents to have on hand to more formal and beautiful coffee table style books or lay flat books to show off photography. Really the choices are endless. I can create photobooks for you, but my preference is to show you how to make them yourselves as it is a very rewarding process and the learning curve isn't steep. The hardest part is finding and narrowing down the photos and using your new search ability along with a few tips on what works best in a book, you'll be able to make books quickly and easily and everyone will enjoy the results.




Sharing: Online galleries


Another way to share photos privately with friends and family is to publish some or all of your photos to an online gallery service. Persaonlly I use SmugMug, but there are other services out there and we can discuss the best option for you. These work really well when you can set them up so that they update automatically and also if you are able to search them, just as you can search your own archive. These galleries are relatively inexpensive and I can set these galleries up for you as part of our project. Once you've decided on your preferred option, it's relatively easy to do. The Legacy Factor Recently during the 'Stay Home' I just had a blast 'Zooming' with my brothers, both far away, as I screen shared my Legacy gallery with them and we had the time to go through it photo by photo. The three of us spent hours going down memory lane and howling with laughter at our outfits. One brother astonished me with his memory of all our old cars! I cannot recommend this experience highly enough - and no need to wait for a pandemic to strike.




Sharing: Slideshows


There's no denying the power of putting photos to music to tell a great story and there are plenty of services out there that will allow you to make pro slideshows quickly and easily. Slideshows can combine photos and video clips for even greater impact. Funny, sad, moving, powerful - whatever your goal for your slideshow they are always a huge hit! The hardest part is finding the right photos but armed with your brand new organized archive this will now be a breeze. Once again allowing you to enjoy your photos rather than being frustrated that you can't find them.

FAQ: Sharing your photos

What precautions do you take when handling my photos and other assets


VIP stands for Very Important Photos - i.e. yours! Just to reassure you that your photos are handled with the utmost care while in my possession. I wear cotton gloves so they are not marked with my fingerprints. I store all your items in bins with sealed lids and keep those bins up off the floor as an added layer of protection. Your photos will be returned in the same condition they arrived, or better if I've made a few repairs - and of course - they'll be a lot more oganized!




I live locally. Can I drop my photos off at your home?


Yes. Or I'm happy to pick up. In either case the appropraite Covid-related precautions will be taken. I'll quarantine your photos for 72 hours before I start work on them and I suggest you do the same when I return them to you.




I don't live locally. Is it safe to ship my photos to you?


Absolutely it's safe to ship photos to me. Hopefully it goes without saying that you will need to box them up very carefully and send them with a reputable shipping company. Be sure to get a tracking number and be mindful of the fact that you cannot require signatures at this time so it's best to share the tracking number with me so that I know when to expect delivery. Once received, your package will be quarantined for 72 hours before I begin working on your photos.
