How’s it going?
Ok we’ve reached the end of the ‘official’ working week and the weekend is upon us so have you got anything planned?
For my last post of the week I want to give you a bit more information about my trip to Loxley Colour a few days ago; a trip I’m so pleased I made for so many reasons…
At over 70,000sq ft Loxley Colour is quite overwhelming but not just because of its sheer size. Usually when I watch a promotional video I’m always a little dubious because of the ‘we care’ and ‘passionate’ comments which let’s face it you’d expect to hear whether the company is or isn’t.
Well having spent the whole day at Loxley Colour getting behind the scenes, meeting everyone and seeing how ‘well oiled’ their system is I can totally vouch for their passion not just for photographs but for photographers. So much behind the scenes is invested and spent on ensuring the service provided is top rate and it was this that was more overwhelming than anything else.
Understand I get nothing for promoting Loxley other than the satisfaction knowing the recommendation to check them out will stand up for itself; VERY impressed! Also it seemed like there was a Quality Assurance (QA) section on every corner; such is their obvious commitment to ‘getting it right’.

The reason I mention Loxley Colour is because I get asked all the time who I use for printing and in fact up until now it’s been pretty much a case of trying various labs but from now on I’ll be using Loxley Colour, and the reasons…fantastic printing which ‘out of the bag‘ matches exactly what I see on screen and a customer service that sets the standard!
Also joining us at Loxley Colour was my friend Alastair Jolly, Head of European Business Development for SmugMug
Was great getting time to catch up and also go through future projects which incidentally includes my website which will be moving over in it’s entirety to SmugMug in the not too distant future. Actually my portfolio is moving over as we speak so I’ll keep you posted about that once it’s up and running which will be in a day or two.
The page is all done and designed by the folks at SmugMug who have a done a cracking job; I just need to populate it with more images which will include images available as downloads for screen savers etc…
Much more stuff going on with SmugMug and Loxley over the coming months but hey I’ll leave that for another post seeing as it’s Friday. In the mean time though why not a) send off for a image or two to get printed (be warned though it is addictive) and also check out what SmugMug have to offer; again both companies who not only provide a great product/s but service which takes some beating!
Ok that’s all from me for today so have a fantastic weekend whatever you’re up to and I’ll catch you back here in a few days.
