Simply the best way to enjoy your photos for a lifetime
If you’ve met me in person you might have noticed I can be a teeny tiny bit massively evangelical about photo albums – because I know from decades of experience that getting my own family photos off the computer and into albums is the only way I’ll ever look at them again! I want you to enjoy the photos I make for you as much as possible so I’d love to make you an album, something you and your family will be able to pick up and pass around and cherish not just for the next year or two, but for a lifetime.
And so my Fine Art Books are the perfect celebration album, a beautiful book designed by me with a little assistance from you, then hand crafted by the renowned Folio Albums in Yorkshire using the finest cover materials and rich archival papers to bring your photos to life for generations of your family to come.

“The best quality book you will ever own”
Your photos mean a lot to you, and they deserve a very special book to keep them in, so I chose Folio Albums to make my fine art books. In these videos I’ve borrowed from their YouTube channel they’ll take you through the process of creating your book by hand from scratch, from the high quality printing and cutting of the leather right through to the wrapping and packaging of each individual album.
An Introduction to Folio Albums
Making Your Fine Art Book
Ordering your book
1. Customise your book
Make your book your own with beautiful cover materials from leather to silk, in a choice of traditional and contemporary colours, before adding your names with a choice of techniques from debossing to laser engraving and gold leafing. You can even choose the colour of the endpapers!
2. Approve your design
I’ll get started on the layout designs using up to 200 of the best photos that tell your story, and I’ll upload the finished draft to a private website for you to approve. You can ask to swap photos around, or replace them with new ones, so that you’re completely happy with your finished book.
3. That’s it!
Once the final design is ready I send the layouts to Folio where they’ll be printed and glued while the cover is stitched and bound, all by hand. It usually takes around four to five weeks for your finished book, and once you peel back the wrappings I think you’ll agree the wait was worth it!
