Do you get professional framing done? If so, where do you go and why?
I wanted to offer framing as part of my family story packages. I’ve been selling print-only and was feeling a bit concerned about what people were actually doing with the prints once they took them home. Shock horror, some of the beautiful prints I’ve made are not being framed at all, and some are being put into inferior frames that are not archival….oh dear!!
I’m so excited to announce that I’ve decided to team up with The Framing Store to give you excellence and accessibility in archival framing. Too much choice can be overwhelming, so I decided to simplify my framing service to bring in a range of colours, for the same framing stock. We use beautiful natural timbers for your exquisite pictures, and the best part is, it’s affordable for the average punter, will do the archival job we all need, and best of all, it means when you leave my studio, you take home your beautiful artwork in a hang-ready state.
Jon the owner of The Framing Store decided that his online and advertising presence needed a facelift, so we set about making some pictures to update his catalogue. I had a pretty open brief, come in and photograph the store, you know, do my thing, take some pictures…well OK, I thought. Now, given that my philosophy around photography is to capture the essence of things, I thought how am I going to do that for a framing shop??? It’s a business that wouldn’t exist without people…and it turns out the people that work there are fabulous to deal with – Jon, lovely chap, ready for a chat and to make a plan or two…and his awesome team Tara, Scott, Julia and Yoko. Everyone was so fun to work with, it was all a bit weird for them of course being photographed at work, but after a speedy couple of hours of shooting we’d all had a good laugh and a excellent final result to show you now. I must say too, I went in there today, and they are so committed and customer focused.
I would totally recommend them…try them out…they do have interstate clients so don’t feel limited if you happen not to be in Canberra:
