Kevin Baildham - photographer.

Full services are available as options, not as requirements.
These services are available on a per image basis.
There are no hidden fees or undisclosed prices.
If I must travel and require meals or accommodation to meet your event schedule or location, this will be discussed before we finalize your event photography agreement.
Please feel free to contact me to set up a meeting to
discuss your requirements and the details of the photography you need.
*Optical disks can vary tremendously in their materials and their archival life. Many manufacturers use low quality organic dyes that will change over time and may become unreadable within a few years.
I use Archival Grade Media - DVDs. These disks are stable for about 30 years and unaffected by static electricity. I recommend that as technology changes, these disks be re-recorded in newer formats, as they become available.
With these files being digital you have the opportunity to copy and then store the original archival grade disk in a safe place, protected from loss. This will provide reliable retrieval of your images in the years to come.
The thing that is magnificent about photography is that it can produce images that incite emotion based on the subject matter alone.
Most things in life are moments of pleasure and a lifetime of embarrassment; photography is a moment of embarrassment and a lifetime of pleasure.
- Tony Benn - In "Independent," (London), 21 Oct 1989.
Not everybody trusts paintings but people believe photographs.
- Ansel Adams
It is best that a photographer not simply take a picture. A photographer has a responsibility to share a visual experience with others by every possible means.
You should never think without an image.
