I carried out an interior office photography shoot in the London Borough of Enfield for Ocee Design to show some of their products used in this new design and fit out for a large IT company. There was an impressive central atrium with walkways and glass balustrade all round on each floor encompassing open work spaces and meeting rooms on each level. Great use of different materials such as concrete, glass and wood give it a modern informal feel.
Fine art photographic prints suitable for office or home interiors.
Liane Ryan Photography has partnered with The Image Print Centre London to print all images that will be for sale. Chosen for their personal service, quality of prints and attention to detail, the Image Centre uses the finest Hahnemuhle papers for printing. I have chosen the Fine Art Pearl 285 gsm and the Photo Rag Baryta for black and white prints.
Why are these papers so good? They are archival museum quality papers which means that they will not fade like some other photographic papers. The textures of the papers are beautiful and really enhance the print.
All images are to be printed in A sizes from A3 to A0 and even extra large. The A sizes have been chosen so that customers can buy affordable frames for their prints easily. Bespoke frames are very expensive but are available if required, please ask for more information.
All limited edition prints will be numbered and hand signed and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity, while open edition prints are unsigned, although they will be also accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
Photography work has been sporadic during the last year during lockdowns but this has given me the time to get a few things sorted that I had been meaning to do for ages. Finally I redesigned my website and after an awful lot of swearing, sitting in front of my computer for hours on end trying to figure it out I have finally finished the new design. I had only ever used the wordpress.com templates for my site before but I found myself at the stage where I needed more flexibility over the design. I wanted to add an ecommerce page to sell some prints and my previous site was just not compatible, even though it said it should be!
So I bought a third party theme and was still struggling to get it to work. Finally I had to call in a professional – Mike Smith Design – who sorted the woo commerce side for me amongst other things and I switched to a different host. There is only so much you can do by yourself and my limited web building skills were not cutting it.
So with a few more tweaks here and there and a huge sigh of relief my new site is here with a shop page for fine art prints. What do you think?
I don’t know if it’s because the sun has been shining today or that Boris made known his road map out of lockdown that put a smile on my face and lifted my mood.
It’s been a tough slog all round. Work has changed, temporarily stopped or for some disappeared altogether. Lives have been turned upside down, families have been grief stricken, loneliness has bit the shielding and many of us have felt the guilt and despair of not being able to see our ageing parents and relatives. Our young people have had their education and future plans plunged into disarray and uncertainty. Mental health has suffered causing many elderly at home or in care homes to deteriorate through lack of contact with loves ones and society. Children, whose lockdown experiences differ greatly have suffered also, from lack of face to face teaching, learning resources at home, social interactions, sports and basically fun!
It’s been terrible, really terrible for so many people and for so many reasons. I so hope that we will slowly and with caution be able to get our lives back to some normality over the coming months. To hug our loved ones again, share a coffee or a few beers with friends, visit places and maybe go on holiday. It wasn’t called the roaring twenties for nothing, maybe the rest of the 20’s this time round will be worth celebrating.
