The NEW BloomBook

WIN FREE BLOOM BOOK!

DETAILS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE!

May is the month when everything is blooming and coming to life. Our idea of an zero-waste & pocket-friendly album with a presentation box was growing for the last few months.

We have planted this vision in our heads a little while ago when we introduced biodegradable air-cushions. We wanted to create a product that would use some recycled materials and bits & pieces that would otherwise go to waste.

This idea is now in full bloom! And it’s called a BloomBook! How original…! 😉

So let me give you some details about the BloomBook. We bulk buy the material – the raw linen. That saves us money by reducing transportation costs, and generally, we can negotiate a better price.

As we offer just one size (20x20cm) we can have the material cut by a machine, which leaves very little material wasted. The Bloom Book comes in a presentation box, which is included in the price. The outer box is made of 3 mm cardboard from recycling, not actual wood.

The wooden frame inside the box is made of wood chips of an alder tree and it’s attached to the box with screws, so very little glue is needed – which means fewer chemicals.

As the money doesn’t grow on trees, we can now offer a product that is of very high quality yet super affordable. From only 65$ you can have the album and the presentation box! It’s a great entry level album for anybody who is starting to offer albums.

NEW PRODUCTS & COVERS!

Qtalbums is bringing you more quality products! FOLIO & VELVET COVERS


This year has been very productive so far. We have travelled the world to meet you in Atlanta, Texas, Las Vegas, Birmingham and Cannes. Everywhere we went people LOVED our products. In Atlanta, we have shown FOLIO for the very first time. It made a huge impression on the audience so we had no choice but to start making it! It’s an excellent way to present pictures.

Folio comes in two sizes: 4x6”and 6x6”. You can pick a duo or a trio version and choose one of our beautiful linens or silks as a cover. Printed on Fuji Lustre or Matte Cotton Rag paper. The prints are permanently mounted to a beautifully textured mat board. There is a discrete magnet which helps with keeping the folio closed.

Cover personalizations are also possible - so say no more - they are perfect. Besides that, they can be stood on end for presentation, so it’s an ideal gift! Folio is available to purchase in the new storefront. Take a look at the stunning pictures of the Folio in the gallery above.

As our travels continued, we wanted to show you more options for albums covers (like if there weren’t enough) so we’ve picked VELVET. And again - it has proved to be a big hit at The Photography Show in Birmingham last March. Velvet is a distinctive soft feel fabric with a short dense piled surface.

We offer it in ten noble colours to emphasize the luxury of this material. Fantastic textile for album covers as well as clamshell or lid boxes. Due to the type of fabric, personalisations are limited at present. But wait till our new UV machine arrives and you won’t have to worry about limitations anymore.

We have recently added this fabric to our shop, so now you can immerse yourself in endless options!

Get on board for the MYSTIC SEMINARS!

Get on board for the MYSTIC SEMINARS!

“You guys are everywhere!” – these were the words we heard from a photographer in Cannes when we attended Way Up North. And here we go again – Havana, Cuba. We are sponsoring Mystic Seminars taking place on a cruise ship on route from Port Canaveral, Florida to Port of Call, Havana! Yes, you heard me right – a cruise ship. An actual Wedding Photography Conference aboard a cruise ship. April 15-19th – is the date when our colleague, Jamie, sets sail with a group of big fish in the photo industry.

Eirik Halvorsen and Paul Woo from #teamQT (our ambassadors ) are speaking at the event so definitely visit them!

Eirik Halvorsen: I have attended several conferences in Europe and the USA and I have never made so many awesome contacts as I have at Mystic. Many I today can call my friends. As a Norwegian from the cold North I have always looked at America for inspiration, and being at Mystic has given me that inspiration, tangible business insight and an expanded network throughout the world”

He call himself a wanderingwoo, and a little story about him here:

Paul Woo: I’m a photographer, adventurer, foodie... but if I could re-classify myself, it would be someone who simply enjoys life and see the beauty of it.

Photography has always been more than just an assignment. I see it as a privilege to be able to capture a unique perspective of someone’s intimate moment.

The life and experience of a photographer is always one of self reflection and constant learning, that I find fascinating. Every moment that I capture, every interaction I have with people, the more beauty i find in life.

Mystic is going into its 14th year of wedding photography education seminar, but it’s our first time attending. Jamie Westman, who is going to represent us, is in shipshape to tell you all about our albums. We wish all the speakers & attendees Fair Winds and Following Seas.

Here’s what the organisers say: A conference where the speakers, attendees, and sponsors interact on the same level. Where real and meaningful connections are made. Where everyone involved brings inspiration forward. A place where you will make lifelong friends. A conference where you know you belong

Way up North

After Stockholm, Rome and Cologne, Way up North Festival is going a little bit south this year. It’s taking place on 2nd – 3rd of April. It will be hosted in a beautiful city of Cannes, home to the rich and famous (that’s us), known for luxury and for several conferences, mainly The Cannes Film Festival. Way up North is Europe’s leading wedding photography conference.


QtAlbums is one of the sponsors of Way up North Festival and we are very proud to be attending this event with our premium quality albums. As usual, the big names in photo industry will be there. The list of the presenters include names like Sam Hurd, Vanessa Joy, Si Moore and many more (click here).

The whole is greater than the sum of it’s parts with the presenters, and collectively we aim for people who inspire action with their ideas
