We live in a time where almost the entire photographic process can be performed through a screen. Images are composed on electronic viewfinders, edited on computer monitors and shared online via smart devices. Some photos are viewed by millions of people and never get printed. Yet, the resurgence of instant cameras and the popularity of online printing outlets are proof there’s still a huge appetite for physical prints.

There’s something that’s undeniably magical about holding a photograph in your hands, or framing and hanging one on a wall. Prints are also a great way to analyse your work – they allow you to view your efforts with fresh eyes. You may notice things you missed on-screen and aspects you’d do differently in the future, and you might find a photograph you’re not particularly enamoured with finally reaches its true potential as a physical print.
