Don’t Hold Back on your Gallery Wall

Gallery Wall

So you have your beautiful  prints with digital files. What are you to do? Of course, there’s the obvious, you post them on social media, where you may or may not get the likes you think they should receive. You put all the digital files on your phone, so that you can show all the pictures to your family, friends and work colleagues. Eventually the photos will get lost with the thousands of other photos you have on your phone. You have been promising yourself to organise your photos into albums to make the best ones more accessible but you haven’t quite got around to doing it because you’re too busy or it’s just too overwhelming.

And the prints! Well they have now been stored somewhere until you can find the time and energy to get them framed and proudly hung on your wall.

So let’s flip this; create a gallery wall of your best portraits or memories so that you can view them everyday and see your prints beautifully framed. These will last a lifetime, if done properly.

Most storage devices won’t be around forever as they are always evolving. Remember the floppy disk! I’m going back a few years now, oh and now I’m showing my age! 

I get great pleasure from my gallery wall. Of course I show photos from my phone and iPad, but the greatest joy I have is printing and framing my images and creating a gallery wall.

This is mine! What does yours look like?

David Augustus Scille was born on a warm summer’s day in 1965 into a family where art and photography were completely alien concepts. However, at school David’s world was turned around completely by his introduction to the study of art in it’s many forms. David’s particular interest in photography was awakened in 1979 when he was given a Kodak compact camera; a whole new world of capturing the world as he sees it opened up to him. He started taking photographs of friends, family and the urban jungle in which he lived. By the summer of 1983 he had saved enough money from odd jobs to buy his first film SLR camera and he began to process his own black and white film. Over the years David has learnt and honed his skill, allowing him to capture beautiful images in a variety of creative and unique ways. The images David captures are fresh, clear and stunning. David is a highly skilled portrait photographer and his talents allow him to capture the unique beauty and personality of his subjects. “Photography is my passion,” says David. “It captures memories in the moment so that they can be enjoyed forever”. Where David sees beauty he strives to capture it in its natural form and preserve it forever.
