Friday morning saw the launch of the Wendy Tea website – a site featuring glass artwork photography by Richard Flint Photography…. but there’s more!

The website itself was also developed and constructed by Richard Flint Photography in a package that delivered both the photography and the website to the client.

The website description on the website design page nicely sums up the client requirements :-

The Wendy Tea site uses audio, video and photography with additional features including a book format journal, social media integration, photo gallery and artwork sales pages to provide the artist with a stylish and artistic presence online. Created to promote and sell glass artwork, the website will also allow the artist to express creative ideas and artistic concepts.

The Wendy Tea website can be found at www.wendytea.co.uk

The Commando memorial at Spearn Bridge, Highlands

As usual with the start of a new year it means that the websites get some extra attention and have an early spring clean. I’ve already been through the main photography blog and tidied up various aspects of the site. Old links have been removed and a few design issues have been corrected. As i stated on the blog not long ago, this year i do intend to blog more after noting the rather low number of posts for 2012.

The portfolio section of this website is also in line for a few tweaks with the Speedway gallery to receive more work during the next few weeks. Last year i updated the Territorial Army gallery to include new images and produce a definitive final version of the project. It is my intention to do exactly the same for the Speedway project to complete that gallery on the website and bring the final tally of images to over forty. Other galleries will also see new work added included the recently added Scotland project that will continue this year. The gallery, which is very much a work-in-progress, will have new images added to it throughout 2013.

The final site to get updates will be the Photography Print Shop where a new sales format is to be introduced after parting with the FOTOMOTO e-commerce engine. All sales are now handled by me personally with an excellent series of professional print artwork options being made available. The winter will see me set up a simple pricing structure before adding a wider range of print finishes later in the year.

Preserving the Past

By |2017-03-13T11:46:50+00:00October 25th, 2012|Categories: News|Tags: , , , , , |

Often i handle work were the details of the photographer have been lost to time. I’ve always liked the idea that the photo repair and copying services I offer, help preserve at least some of the vintage photography and keep the photographer’s work alive. How much of it gets destroyed or lost each year is anyone’s guess but it is probably more than we’d like to see lost forever.

The above photo is a case in point. Back in August I was contacted by a vintage photography collector who had come across 120 fragile glass negatives that he believed document people who lived in my community back in the late Victorian and early Edwardian era. The images are of a very high quality and cover a good cross section of people. It is a valuable social record of a community or family during the late 19th and early 20th century. The only problem is that the photographer is unknown and the people in the portraits remain nameless. In fact the entire collection, apart from around eight street photographs that are easily identifiable, remains a mystery.

The images are being archived to Flickr and the community website that i designed and help run is attempting to find some answers by pooling the detective work. Someone out there knows who these people are. The locations are also a factor. If we can even identify the locations where some of these images were taken, it will help in the identification.  Hopefully some answers can be found to this photographic mystery.
