Wyn Wiley and QTAlbums

We are thrilled to announce that we have a new ambassador for the USA!

I met Wyn during the SNAP Photography Festival. I’ve listened to his very inspiring talk about what he does in the photography business and for fund-raising. I found it very moving and inspiring, that one individual can achieve so much with his good will and a big heart.

I decided to approach him, and this opened a relationship which led to what we have achieved today! Ladies and Gentlemen: I would like to introduce you to amazing Wyn Wiley!

Listen y’all, One of the biggest if not the only regrets in my whole photography career has been not offering fine art wedding albums. It’s just that simple – for the longest time I’ve put so many false mental barriers between myself and offering albums and in the meantime completely robbed my couple’s of the opportunity to have their photos printed in the most beautiful physical form.

About Wyn


”hello! i'm 26 years old and call nebraska home. i'm based out of the midwest & get to travel the world making photos for people and brands i love. the clients i work with make my life full and there's always an adventure around the corner. when you hop on board with me, you’re not a client, you’re a friend.

To put it even more honestly, I offered 0 album options for the first 10 years of my photography career I and then I got smart, well actually I didn’t get smart at all, I met a person far smarter than me named Pawel, from QTAlbums. We met at a photography conference where I was speaking and for the first two days of the conference I avoided the QT Albums table completely because I thought to myself-

1. the backend process of ordering of fine art wedding albums has to be one of the most time intensive and sticky process is out there – FALSE.

2. I also thought that there would never be a album company that would see and appreciate me as a human first and foremost & that they would be by my side for anything at anytime welp, FALSE too.

Wyn Albums

What I found in QT albums is a company and people that have my back, that take my photos and make the most beautiful product I could ever offer my clients, and make the backend process for me such a breeze that it’s faster than anything else on my plate during the work week.

All this to say, I just can’t thand these people enough for what they’ve done for me so far and cannot recommend them enough. They are. Solid gold.
So that’s just the truth straight from my experience working from them. If you want visual proof of their work too please take a look at some of the books they designed for me below.

I feel like I should wrap this up by saying that you really shouldn’t hear this all from me you should be hearing this from my clients to so I thought I’d end it with a quote from some of my clients Sam and Trey.

The BloomBook!

We have introduced the BloomBook only a few months ago, on May 2019. Since we have launched this environmentally-friendly and pocket-friendly album, we have now printed well over a hundred of them! We are so happy to hear all the positive feedback from our lovely photographers and their clients.

It’s just a perfect, simple and smart album with a presentation box. The raw linen gives this 8x8” baby a natural and organic look. That eco-look represents the BloomBook perfectly, as we took every possible effort to reduce wastage. That is why it’s not only great for the environment but it’s also insanely affordable. BloomBook is available to order in our new storefront only.

Check the price in our new storefront and you will be amazed! A beautiful album along with linen&wood presentation box for every pocket! I dare you to find something of the same fantastic quality at that price :-)! If you ever had a QtAlbums product in your hands, you know we never cut back on the quality. If you would like to know more about how we make the BloomBook to be environmentally friendly - just click here and read our older blog post.

I can’t count how many times this album has been featured in Instagram post and stories, but it definitely got a huge coverage. I love how people react to this book when they open it for the first time.

The fact that it’s so reasonably priced, might make them expect a little less in quality. But that is not the case with the BloomBook. It’s a solid, lay-flat album, printed on Fuji paper with a lovely box to match the look.

Video by Anna Raljanović who told me today: “And by the way, I love the BloomBook, if you didn't already know”

Try the BloomBook - you will love it too!

The Journal Artbook - pure luxury in every detail!

They say “Don’t judge a book by it’s cover”! Well, they haven’t seen The Journal Artbook yet!

It’s the leather wrap cover and the deckled edge cotton rag paper that make The Journal such an exceptional product. The combination of these two most luxurious materials makes people go “WOW!” Hand-made by our best craftsman, we can honestly say - our finest album!

Hazelnut (pictures above), Caramel, Stone and Black - make the choice with the four types of genuine Italian leather we have available for The Journal When we launched it we offered 8x8, 10x10” and 12x12”. Right now, you can have the Little QT Journal 4x4” (OMG it’s so cute! see pictures below), horizontal 8x12” and 11x14” (both vertical and horizontal).

4x4” Little QT Jounal Artbook

We’re not the only ones in love with The Journal Artbook. Our clients love it too! They’ve been taking some amazing snaps of this beautiful album!

"Velvet, if you please..."

There is something quite magical about this fabric. Your eyes will admire it, but the true love will come with the touch. Don’t we all love the soft, delicate, smooth and fluffy feeling? Yeah, we do – it’s the velvet.

“Black velvet, if you please…”

I love what Ula Koska did with the black velvet fabric. So here is the recipe – you take a boudoir session, mix it with a good bit of talent, put it in the Heirloom, cover in black velvet and place into QtAlbums oven for a while. You get this magical album.

 

“She wore blue velvet, bluer than velvet was the night, softer than satin was the light…”

The great thing about the velvet is that when using the right colour, you can match it with the design you have in the album. And like the black and cranberry are ideal for the boudoir sessions, the petal and blue are just perfect for new-born photography.

 

“You keep your heart in a velvet box, in a room within a house without a door..”

We love the velvet covers, but I might risk saying that we love the velvet even more on the clamshell presentation boxes. Still can’t decide which is my favourite colour, do you have one yourself?

 

Watch a beautiful cranberry cameo velvet album on a video. Thank you, Lauren, for sharing your work!

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!

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.
