There is nothing worse than taking lots of different pictures on your mobile phone or camera, and then leaving them on the memory card or hard drive, never to see the light of day again. Photographs are designed to be printed or displayed and enjoyed.

If you take lots of pictures using your mobile phone or camera, make sure you do something useful with them. We are now providing access to our professional digital printing services and expertise, so you can have high quality printed products displayed in your home, with pride. We will maximise the quality of your images, colour correct where necessary and provide a finished product you can show off to friends and family. If the quality of your images is not high enough, we will advise you so that you don’t waste money on inferior finishes.

We can provide the following products, using your images:

Slideshows and videos, burned to disc or mp4 (can be viewed on mobile device and put on social media if required).

Luster Prints, at all standard sizes

Prints or digital collages

Mobile Apps for Photographers

We all spend way too much time staring at our mobile phones these days, simply because you can do so much with them. If you love photography there are new and exciting apps becoming available for your phone on a daily basis, although many of them are rubbish. I will keep adding to the list below replacing with improved versions as and when I find them, so keep checking back to keep up-to-date with the best Apps available.

Rocks are hard objects we don’t think of as bendable in any sense of the word, and yet Spanish artist José Manuel Castro López has found a way to manipulate stone so that it appears soft and pliable. His stunning sculptures don’t even look real, as the rocks he carefully crafts are full of impossibly awesome twists and folds. Simply looking at his work makes you question everything you think you know about rocks.
