Case Studies

Everything's a Story Photography

After more than three decades as a Commercial and Advertising photographer producing immaculate sales photography for clients, Hugh Burden recently started shooting for fun and for himself. The cannon of work that came out, loosely described as ‘fine art photography’ was well received and he decided to show it publicly. The photobook was made as a catalogue for that first show in Bristol and was sold during the show.
The size of the book chosen was described by Hugh as a ‘no brainer’ – the biggest available. His images are at their best the bigger they go. The paper type was chosen as being ‘photographic’.

The design and layout evolved naturally, whilst creating the book. Like curating an exhibition some images worked together well, whereas others are best standalone. It became quickly evident and a preference anyway that a clean simple layout let the photographs speak for themselves with no clutter or distraction.

Selected photography Photography Biography Portfolio

Kryzysztof Strzelecki is a second year Photography student at University of the Arts London (UAL) Camberwell. The work included in ‘Selected Photography’ examines the differences (and similarities) between man and the environment, contrasting the wilds of nature with the fragility of the human form. Most of his photography is taken in open air, where the naked body is exposed to the elements. His own body is central to his approach and he often acts as both model and photographer. This creates a kind of performance, where he seeks to find answers to the uncertainties regarding ‘where do I belong’ and ‘how do I see myself’?

He believes that taking the picture is the only part of making the art, integral to the whole process is the quality of the paper and the final print. His choice of a Portrait Lustre Photographic Book compliments his approach to photography.

Keeping the album layout simple and clean ensured the best results for his selected photographs. The progression from one picture to another shows his way of thinking and allows a deeper understanding of his art.

Untitled #1 Travel & Holiday Art & Design Architecture Portfolio

Ashley Hardman is a self-taught photographer, residing in Preston, North West England. She is currently looking at going back into education to study photography. Ashley works in a traditional British pub which acts as a nucleus of the city, drawing in people from all walks of life and many parts of the world. She is frequently asked about her photography and where it can be viewed.

This inspired Ashley to look into self-publishing her images in a photobook. She now had a way to display her work in a non-digital format, that makes it easily accessible in her place of work, (on the bookshelf). Her photobook works to tell a story and one that asks questions of the viewer.
