Photo Books by Saal Digital

Saal Digital offer HighEnd photo products with brilliant quality, they are a professional photo lab with great enthusiasm for photography.

I chose to have a flexible photo book printed, The square format is excellent for images in both landscape and portrait formats. Images can be perfectly presented.

I opted for a 19×19 format book, with an unpadded, glossy cover, with a square image, printed on the front and back cover of the book, set against a black background.

The software is very simple to use, you can upload your own layout, or use the templates provided, with ordering and payment facilities built in.

Delivery was very speedy, efficient with excellent tracking and packaging.

The quality of the photo book was outstanding, the print finish was perfect and really set the images off, the thickness of the paper, was of a better standard than other products that I have used in the past.

This is a lay flat book (its means the book opens flat, for better viewing of the images) which is perfect if you want to display your images at full bleed.

I chose images that I knew would be hard to print (the images have been manipulated by soaking them in sea water, this causes a distortion in the image and pigments) the colour representation was spot on when compared with the original prints.

This product I would happily recommend to clients, photographers, friends and family. I would also use Saal Digital products again in the future, I can’t find any faults with their service or quality of products, for me, I give them 10/10!

Return of the Macks 2017 (part one)

Travelling up to Leicester on a Friday, wasn’t as straightforward as it should have been, we had to go via Cheltenham so that I could hand in my last workbook, for the degree show, also the trains were delayed and we missed our connection in Brum, the weather ahh yes glorious sunshine and hot…(Lokey gets grumpy on overcrowded cattle wagons, when it’s a beautiful hot, sunny day – ideal painting conditions).

So we got to Leicester an hour or so later than we had wanted, checked into the hotel, then headed to Culture Quarter, to check out what had been painted in the lead-up to the main event. What images I did take were on film (I haven’t sent them away for developing yet), after having a walk around, and catching up with a few people who still painting in the failing light, we ended up in The Exchange (lovely bar and they serve tea and cake too), now the choice’s of Cider for a Bristolian were limited, they had some bottled stuff that was apple or strawberry, or the only cider on tap… ‘Cloudy with a chance of shit-faced – a proper clear, flat cider that only West Country folk would have the balls to drink, now remember we were all bottle fed and weaned on ‘Traditional Thatcher’s’.

As writer’s do, there was the usual ‘pass’ the black book (It’s a writer thing, if you’re all together with peeps from out of town, you generally sign, tag or draw in each other’s black books, it’s a way of commemorating the event). It was good to catch up with old friends and new, I met and spoke to some interesting people, from all walks of life,

some people were meeting their idols for the first time, others were old friends and crew members, who may as well be family as they’ve known each other since childhood, it was like any other night down the pub, convo’s from work, art through to family life… normal people shit, it’s wasn’t like one of these lads nights out, where get’s sloshed in the first hour, cause havoc in the town, the odd fight, and someone being nicked, it was like being in one of, those, 18th century Gentlemen’s Club’s (where no females were allowed) very civilised and somewhat posh, though we were all outside, due to it being rather humid!

This night ended a little later than planned, and the hotel, the humidity, when we walked through the fire door, towards our room, was like stepping off of a plane in Adelaide in a 100+ temp… Humidity and dehydration mean one thing, a mother f8cker of a hangover for some people! (I don’t drink by the way!)

Those that were drinking ‘Cloudy with a chance of shit-faced’, didn’t touch it on Saturday night…

Multi Expo’s

These’s Multi Exposures are all done ‘in camera’ and taken on film. Film is my medium of choice, for a few reason’s, waiting for the film to be developed, looking at the prints, not knowing what to expect… Here are a few of my fav images, that I have taken over the past 10 years.
