Emotional Storytelling by Twyla Jones

“Creating photographs that do more than serve as proof you existed - they show that you lived passionately and loved madly” is a quote by amazing photographer and our friend, Twyla Jones. I love this quote, as it represents our values too. In QtAlbums, we believe that photography is an art, and art should be displayed properly. We are so privileged, that Twyla is letting us print her amazing work, and we’re happy she loves what we do.

Twyla has been sharing her amazing skills in a Facebook group called “Emotional Storytelling”. Since I’ve joined the group, I have seen nothing but stunning pictures. I absolutely love it, all the content is so inspiring, full of passion for photography and it’s more than just pictures. It’s stories told thru pictures.

Twyla and Noella have achieved something fantastic and we wanted to invite you to join the group. Here is something more about Emotional Storytelling community:

The purpose of the Emotional Storytelling Group is to connect photographers for encouragement, skill sharing, and professional growth as individuals committed to our craft. Our mission is to come together as a group of photographers who use our talent to share the story of the lives of our clients who are trusting us to show the passion they live their lives with, and to really connect with each other because we know that there is always room to learn and grow”

Beside the fact that by joining the group you will access inspiring content, you can also take part in some giveaways! Twyla’s group recently reached over 10k followers and along with other prizes there were 10 BloomBooks to be won! Join the group, you will love it and wait for another giveaway that might happen sooner than you think 😉

The Journal Artbook

The Journal Artbook

We unveiled this new album earlier this week at Imaging USA and the reaction from photographers was overwhelming, to say the least. People spotted it from far away and came dashing towards it to scoop it up in their arms. When people caught sight of this album out of the corner of their eye, their heads snapped toward it and we heard every sort of "Oh my!" and "Where have you been all my life?!" We knew it was something special, but it's the greatest feeling in the world to see how many others agree.

The Journal ArtBook is defined by its soft, leather-wrap cover that envelops a book of hand-torn cotton rag pages. A rustic, leather strap closure winds around to finish the look. It’s a classic, antique-looking album reminiscent of yesteryear that, as you run your hands over the subtle texture of the fine art prints, invokes a wonderful sense of nostalgia.

The distinguished cover doesn’t stand alone from what’s inside: beautifully hand-torn pages made from museum quality cotton rag paper and printed with pigment-based inks. The fine, slightly textured surface of this archival fine art paper is ideal for printing both black & white and colour photographs, as well as art reproductions, with impressive pictoral depth. To make it even more luxurious, the front page is embossed in gold, illuminating your clients' names or your logo - a custom stamp allows you to create something truly personal.

The Journal's cover is not attached to the block of pages, and doesn't feature a hard spine, so we have also added the extra touch of a silk binding on the pages to add support and stability for longevity.

We invite you to create a studio sample of your own to share with clients and hopefully experience some of the same jaw-dropping reactions from them that we saw from photographers this week. Take 50% off the regular price by using the code below:

New York, New York !

New York City was always a dream for a lot of people, city that inspires millions, city where the dreams are made of, city that never sleeps, city of great art, great photography, New York City.

It always reminds me of one song - I think the only one song that I would listen and listen over and over again.

On that occasion we will be also hosting a small workshop / meeting with Twyla Jones, come and see us and meet with us. You can sign up here.

During our trip to USA we will be sponsor guests on Midwest Gathering in Detroit, which is the first this type of conference in this area. There are still available tickets!!!

Detroit is a place where things are made, a place where people have always come together to make something greater than themselves, piece by piece. The Midwest Gathering is carrying on that tradition.
