A Print Artist is, in my case, a photographer, who produces and presents work in printed form. We greatly value preserving memories in the medium of high quality prints and albums. There are many reasons why we have chosen to present our artwork in printed form - most regarding the maintaining of integrity of our art and your investment. Other reasons begin, but don't end with the vastly changing landscape of digital media.
We know you are here because you love not just our photography, but all kinds of photography (Heck! Photos are their own language) - so please indulge our desire to keep you informed, and keep on reading.
Suggests Printing Your Photos If They Are Important To You
"If there are pictures that you really really care about then creating a physical instance is probably a good idea. Print them out, literally." - Vint Cerf (As reported by Peta Pixel)
Here is a wonderful excerpt from Digital Trends regarding the changes foreseen in the digital landscape. As a lover of photographs, you will want to know about this, I promise.
"Even if you’re running low on wall space, printing can still play an important role in archiving your images. The physics of how light bounces off a piece of paper and into your eyes is not going to change, but the way a computer reads an image file does change. JPEG, long the standard of compressed images, is beginning to give way to the new HEIF format. Optical disks like DVDs used to be the gold standard of photo backup, but now they’ve all but vanished. External hard drives have gone through several types of physical connection, from USB to FireWire to Thunderbolt — and several generations of each. In short, there is no guarantee that the computer of tomorrow will be able to read the photos you take today, unless you consistently modernize your digital archives. Cloud services can certainly help with this, but the companies that run them aren’t guaranteed to be around forever, either." -Digital Trends
As always, we here at Julia Conroy Photography, Inc. like to think about the future. Not just the future of (boring?) technical changes relating to the digital age, but the changes in what we cherish as we grow older.
"42% of people between the ages of 30 and 44 will likely look back and wonder where photos of their childhood, holiday get-togethers, relatives and friends have gone decades from now? Why? They no longer print photographs or create photo albums. In fact, 67% store their photos solely on a computer or phone1."
