About one2one Photography
one2one Photography is an International Photography Company with offices in the UK, New Zealand, Australia, and Canada, employing 12 (fully qualified) professional wedding and commercial photographers. one2one has never been afraid of breaking away from the traditions and idiosyncrasies that many photography firms the World over impose on their clientele, predominantly the retention of your photographs and Copyright. Most photographers will release the images for an extra fee or if you buy a wedding album from them, but we have always believed that to be fundamentally wrong.
We would also go as far in saying that we do not have one Company Procedure or Policy that benefits our Company, they all benefit our clients. Take the issue of Copyright. The only reason photographers retain Copyright is so they can benefit from on-selling your photographs, even though you have paid them to capture the photographs.
"Photography has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them. Elliott Erwitt
When we established one2one photography in the UK back in 1994, we literally started with a blank sheet of paper and asked ourselves what was right with the photography industry, but more importantly what was wrong with it. Also, just what was it that wedding couples wanted from a wedding photographer? You only have to go back to the early 90's when wedding photographers were still being hired by the hour to shoot the traditional family groups. Often a wedding photographer could do as many as 4 weddings a day, if he got his timings right! Those days are long gone, but what we identified in the late 90's was that wedding couples wanted modern, documentary based photographic images. More importantly you wanted all of YOUR PHOTOS - why not, we would.
We knew then, and we still know now that many photographers operate their businesses owning the full Copyrights to YOUR photographs indefinitely. In fact, many professional photography associations discourage their members from giving up any form of Copyright. We do not follow that train of thought and never will. All one2one customers receive every image that we capture and we provide the full-resolution original and edited digital files without any reduction giving YOU the option to what YOU want with YOUR images.
