PHOTO ORGANIZING

Offering a set price for photo organizing is difficult because everyone's situation is different. it is not only based on the number of images and your set up, but most importantly what it is you want to accomplish.

Consultation: I will get some basic information from you over the phone, and I will try to give you a ballpark fee range. A home visit will be necessary to see your set-up and get specific information before i can quote you an exact fee. The visit usually takes between 1-2 hours and there is no charge if you decide to go forward. If you decide that you do not want to proceed, there will be a $100 fee for the visit, however I will leave you with helpful information along with some DIY resources and will answer whatever questions I can for you.

Digital Collections: Digital photo collections can get very out of hand, very quickly. Commonly photos are scattered in many places and devices which can put them at serious risk for loss. It is also not unusual to see many duplicates in a collection, sometimes 2 or 3 or more of the same photo, this adds up and takes up valuable storage space. There are some basic fixes and steps I take to restore a digital photo collection, removing duplicates and ensuring you have a safe back up and storage plan is part of that, but there is more to it. For more details, read more here...

Print Collections: Prints often get stored in boxes, sometime into their original envelopes, sometimes not. We often place our favorite prints in photo albums, which can actually put them at a greater risk for damage, yellowing and brittleness. I highly recommend scanning and digitizing older prints for safe keeping, you can view my services and prices listed below.

If you need help with editing or organizing your prints, either in general or for a specific project such as albums, slideshows or a special event, please give me a call and we will discuss it. I can often provide you with different ideas and options to help you preserve and enjoy these valuable pieces of your family history

Need a Helping Hand? Not all jobs are complicated, sometimes you may just need some help getting your photo collection in order, or want to get some training on how to manage things going forward. We can work together to accomplish whatever it is you may need, whether it is learning how to keep your photo collection manageable or how to better use some popular photo apps (see training section below).


TRAINING/TUTORING

$80/hour.

Whether you are an amateur, a hobbyist, a semi-professional or a pro, I can help you learn what you need to learn regarding photography and digital imaging or just keeping your family photos in order.

I am an expert in Apple Photos and Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop, and can teach you how to use them effectively for your needs.

Apple Photos (used to be iPhoto) is not the most intuitive app, and that confusion can often prevent people from using it effectively and can send your collection into disarray. When set up correctly, it is actually a good system and can pretty much run on itself.

Let me help you take the mystery out of the the Apple Photos app. In usually one 2-2½ hour session I can teach you some basics which will help you navigate it with confidence, and most importantly show you the settings on your computer and phone that will give you a maintenance free photo library going forward.

Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop is a popular choice for photo hobbyists and professionals alike. I have been using them both since their inception and can guide you through basics and more advanced usage, along with teaching you workflow and some best practices going forward,

Photography: I teach basic and advanced photography classes at the Los Angeles Center of Photography. If you would like private photography lessons, please call and let me know what you are interested in. Here are samples of my work.

You can also sign up for one of my classes at LACP
