What can Ansel & Fox actually do for you?
We are a full photographic services and design agency working for private and exclusive clients. Anything you need doing with photographs and video, we can make happen or facilitate for you – in effect, we are an image concierge for your entire photographic archive, past and present.
Our passion is releasing images from the depths of your hardware and breathing life into them, either in the form a beautiful, bespoke leather-bound photograph album or book, through to a fun coffee mug, or just a framed print for your mantle piece.
Simply put, we remove the stress of battling with unfamiliar software, worrying about resolution of images, or sitting for hours in dark room trying to decide which image to keep and which to discard. We do it quickly, efficiently, discreetly and professionally, and entirely online – so wherever you are in the world, we can help you.
If you are not a keen photographer or would like to know more, we can either provide you with a professional photographer to accompany you as a member of your entourage, or maybe give you some private tuition to maximise your camera skills to help us generate your album on your return from your trip.
But it can be worse than just having your current digital photos all over the shop; papers, maps, documents, newspaper clippings, old photos, loose negatives, slide drums and, of course, ancient photograph albums going back before the war.
We’ve seen it all. It can all be rescued, sorted out, converted to digital images, uploaded to a safe place, backed up, and shared with your family and friends.
They need to be safe, accessible and useable. Otherwise, they might as well sit there in its old cupboard, or just be thrown away.
Editing & Restoration
Of course, not all photos look great straight out of the camera. As pros know, if you are shooting RAW images, then post-production is non-negotiable to get your images to a presentable level.
If you are trying to get the right resolution for a large print for your house, that can also be a pretty mind-bending task in Photoshop.
Old photographs that are falling to pieces? Scanned and restored.
A set of image from a holiday? Edited and uploaded.
A full commercial model or product shoot? No problem – we’ll retouch them.
All this work prepping your images is for nothing if there’s no plan for them when they are finished; how are you actually going to stop them gathering digital dust?
Well, photograph albums are still very much loved and enjoyed. They are also an awful lot easier to leave to your grandchildren than your iPhone account is!
And this is what we specialise in – the design, proofing and manufacture of beautiful, bespoke, leather-bound photograph albums. Or, if you’d rather, a hardback, dust-covered, photobook; find out more on the products page.
Easy. Trouble free. Fast. Stunning.
Ansel & Fox was started by photographers who realised that their clients really didn’t know how to cope with the ever-increasing number of their own photos.
We were photographers then, and we still are. As such, we can provide professionals to get those amazing shots for you if you feel yours just won’t do your holiday or party justice.
We’ll travel as a member of staff, and document your holiday, expedition and family. The finished, professional images will also then be in the right place to go straight into a bespoke photograph album for you.
Makes life a lot simpler for everyone.
Alternatively, if you love photography and travel and are planning to head off globe-trotting to get some amazing images, perhaps we can still help you.
Book a class with us and we’ll send a professional photographer to come and talk you through some things to really enhance your shots whilst you are away.
We can also come to wherever you are; we’ll bring all learning materials, as well as doing a full class outside with your cameras, instructing you on composition, exposure, focus and light.
Ultimately, we want to advise you how to get the best out of what you are photographing so that we can make you a cracking album of your activities afterwards!
