Google Storage

An announcement this past week about Google storage you need to read. I know that I must sound like I repeat myself a lot but here it goes AGAIN. If you are using anything on-line to store your photos, video or any files and you do not have back-ups on drives in your house or business you are asking for problems.

Google is now going to start limiting how much you can store as well as deleting inactive accounts.This will not be the last. The way Google can afford to offer this service is they add it into their products to help pay for the storage. Once their sales start to fall (for whatever reason) they will cut again.

SO – before it is too late get a hard drive, download your files, disconnect the drive till you need to add more to it and keep it in a safe place. Better yet print your photos so you don’t need to rely on technology to see them!

Started in 1985 by Mike Paterson. Paterson Photography quickly grew to be one of the leaders in the photography industry in Lethbridge and southern Alberta. Paterson Photography has always been on the cutting edge of the photo business and continues to be so, even today. Offering more than just a standard photography studio.

Printing – One Hour & Custom Printing

In 2002 Mike opened a custom printing division. Catering at first to the advanced amateur and professional photographer as well as many graphic companies around western Canada. Today I also provide photo printing to all level of photographers with my one hour photo lab. Paterson Photography Ltd. is your best choice for custom photo prints in Lethbridge and area. Offering prints from wallets to 44×100 inches on a variety of media. No cheap, poor color poster prints like many places offer. All my printing is done on archival media at the highest resolutions.  I print for individuals, companies and groups that want quality prints that look amazing. Traditional photo lab prints with outstanding quality, better than your discount and drug stores!  If you need a one hour lab or a custom lab give me a call, you will be glad you did!

Digital Photography

The early 90’s found a new trend starting in photography studios, Digital.  Mike wanted to know more about what was happening.  During a business trip to Vancouver Mike had a chance to try one of the first digital studios and was impressed with what he saw.  Spending a lot of time researching digital Mike tried a couple of digital systems to add to his traditional studio.  Dabbling in digital was not enough and in the late 90’s Mike jumped into digital all the way.  Converting his studio to 100% digital in 1999, many years before many even heard of a digital camera.

The jump to digital also opened up a number of other doors for Mike.  Mike was introduced to one of the top Adobe experts in north America and this created a desire to know more about photo restoration and retouching.  Now with Photoshop training at Langara College and numerous courses directly from Adobe, as well as many thousand of hours working on photos Mike is passing on his knowledge to others.   Mike offers courses, not only in Adobe Photoshop, but also in digital photography, studio photography, nature & wildlife and many more areas.  Mike’s teaching has him traveling all over western Canada teaching for some of the largest corporations as well as individuals and groups.
