A picture is worth a thousand words
The source of the above phrase is not clear but what we do know is that the phrase originates (early 19 century) from America.
Where ever it originates it couldn’t be more descriptive on how we view images in the 21st century! With the advent of technology such as snapchat, Instagram, Pinterest etc. it is widely felt there is no need for long passages of explanation leaving the viewer to draw their own conclusions.
We adorn the walls of our homes with images, whether they are prints, paintings or photographs. We take those special images with us to work to identify our space, and we ensure relatives have a reminder of home if they are spending time in hospital or residential care etc.
There will always be a need to physically hold an image in our hands, to access it whenever we choose, where ever we choose.
With the advent of digital imagery we are overwhelmed by the amount of images we have, whether you are a professional photographer or a proud parent snapping their family on the beach in North Wales. With so many to choose from we have become more selective about the images we choose to focus on. We discard the ones which haven’t quite made the cut and once decided on we take to the task of looking at how best to display and enhance that particular image. Here at Photech we understand the process each image has gone through to get to us! We feel we continue the journey offering the best development processes, the most experienced technicians, and highest quality products. Our dedicated team works closely with photographers to achieve the required results.
Our personal service allows the perfect progression from receipt through to the final finished product.
Contact us today and together we can turn your chosen image into a beautiful piece of art.
