Think of the best stuff you ever had. The best meal, the best coffee, the coolest shoes, the wittiest tee-shirt … a fantastic book store, those amazing heirloom tomatoes.
The people who provide you with amazing stuff are obsessive.
Yes, they want to sell you something, but it’s their obsession that drives them and makes them outstanding.
There’s a lot of obsessiveness in a beautiful album too, from the photography and design to the printing and binding.
Every now and then we remind the obsessive people who work at Queensberry that our business is “not about the albums”.
Sometimes we remind photographers that it’s not about the photography either…
Because it’s not.
Our business is about the people in the viewfinder. You. Your stories. Your special moments.
So if you’ve chosen a photographer who’s driven to be the best they can be, congratulations! You need someone like that, who obsesses about camera models and available light and pixels and ICC profiles and software that makes your eyes cross!
But if your photographer also understands that, as one professional put it, people photography is about people, not about photography, you’re on the way to a beautiful album that you can “enjoy, reflect upon and share forever”.
