In our last post we explained what a DPH (Digital Photo Hub) was. If you missed it, we recommend you pop over for a read, it was an important one!
As promised this time we are giving you a real life example of how I chose...
The acronym DPH is one professional photo organisers like us use frequently with our clients and our colleagues. But what exactly is it? How do you get one? Where do you put it? Why should you use one? Those are all great questions. As event managers in our past lives we love addressing the traditional project management type questions of WHEN, WHERE, WHO, WHAT and WHY, so let's apply those to this topic!
Recently someone contacted me to discuss how I could help them with their photo collection. They mentioned that they had just been on a 3 week holiday and had come home with 18,000 (yes thousand) photos from that trip. On hearing that number I knew instinctively that was too many!! Too many to store, too many to use and too many to enjoy. Surely this kind of digital photo overload could only be a burden. Just thinking about that number made me tired. So, I started to ponder and research how can I help highlight the importance of taking fewer photos.
Having tangible keepsakes and memorabilia can help ensure you have a sense of self and family identity. We’ve talked about this before here but today we wanted to highlight our top 3 reasons we think memory keeping is so important.
For anyone that has ever outsourced a service there is often an associated feeling of guilt for not being able to do it yourself and hiring a photo organiser is no exception. So today I wanted to tell you about some of the reasons we think our photo organising clients are awesome and send a little love your way.
You may remember back in April, I wrote about being called a Pirate searching for buried treasure. Today I wanted to share with you some of the reasons I love being a photo organiser and I thought I might have a go at sticking with the Pirate theme.
Recently we took the kids to an event called Obstacool as a family fun day out. Given it had been raining solidly for over a week I knew it was going to be a very muddy affair. With this in mind I decided to take our point and shoot camera (with a wrist strap) instead of juggling my phone for photos. If I am honest with myself I didn’t want to put my phone at risk of damage and determined that the camera could take one for the team if damages were to occur.
