Work in progress

When I tell people what I do for a living they usually say: “Wow, so you get to see a lot of the world, don’t you?” Well, yes, I do, but I also spend quite a few hours in my office. Not just for post processing, but also for designing and making albums. I’m one of the few wedding photographers that still makes albums by hand. I have my artwork darkroom printed, I cut it by hand, and glue it to the pages manually. After that, I mount the pages one by one and after a few last checks, it’s finally done. It takes me two days to complete one album. I try to organise my work so that I can make these albums in the days I don’t have to shoot and usually that works. For me the challenge is to make each album as perfect as it can be. And my clients love them.
