Saal Digital are a professional photo lab based in Siegen, near Bonn in Germany, and their website for the UK market is www.saaldigital.co.uk  

The website is very clean and easy to navigate, and they have a very comprehensive range of products, from prints, photo books and photo gifts, through to a wide selection of wall art in canvas, aluminium, acrylic and PVC Foamboard styles, all at very competitive prices. 

As I'd been meaning to print some photos from our trip to Australia and New Zealand for our walls at home I thought this was a great opportunity to try them out.

I decided to try the PVC Foamboard, which gives a modern and minimal look, standing proud of the wall surface.

I've used Foamboard for samples for exhibitions and wedding fairs in the past, and it's very durable and lightweight, and easy to hang. There are two options - 5mm or 10mm thickness, I chose the standard 5mm.

I chose a panoramic photo taken along the Abel Tasman track on New Zealand's South Island, one of the absolute highlights of our trip, and somewhere we'd wanted to go to since our first visit to New Zealand back in 2002 when we couldn't fit it in our tight schedule.

The photo is actually made up of 3 photos I stitched together in Adobe Lightroom, and after adjusting the crop slightly my final print size was 30x90 cm, or 12x36 inches for those of us still working in real measurements 😉

After downloading the design software from the Saal website, it's simply a case of selecting your desired product and size and then placing your image and adding it to your shopping basket.

After checking out I received an email confirmation and delivery period of 10 days, which I assumed meant 10 business days.

The package was duly delivered by dhl 10 days later, which I was pleasantly surprised by, as I'd placed the order on a Friday, so there were two weekends in that period.

The foamboard was very well packaged and protected for transit, and I was very impressed with both the quality and colour accuracy of the printing, which these quick phone photos don't do justice to.

I'd opted for the aluminium subframe mounting option, which is pre-mounted, so all I had to do was drill a couple of holes in the wall for screws and hang the photo. The subframe leaves a 1cm gap to the wall, so the photo floats proud of the wall surface with no mounting visible.

This is the first order I've placed with Saal Digital, but I've been very impressed with the service and quality, and I will definitely be using them again, and look forward to trying some of their other products.

Bremfest 2015 https://www.karlburryphotography.com/blog/2015/9/bremfest-2015 Many thanks to Terry Franks and Steve and Caroline at the Dumbpost Inn, Bremhill for putting on a fantastic day for Bremfest, raising funds for the Wiltshire Air Ambulance and the Bobby Van.

The weather could have been kinder to us (I was very thankful for the weather sealing on my Nikons during Benji & Hibbz' set!) but that didn't stop everyone having a great time, and their was a great mix of music from Limited Edition, The Blues Breakout, The Stable Yard Jazz Band, Nathan Jones & His All Stars Jazz Band, Terry Franks, Strictly Dan and Benji & Hibbz.

Here's the link to the full gallery of photos, I hope you enjoy them!

12 Days of Christmas Day 9 - Boxed Print Collections https://www.karlburryphotography.com/blog/2015/1/12-days-of-christmas-day-9 I know many of my clients really struggle to narrow down their photos from a portrait shoot to one or two framed images and a few prints, which is why all the images on disc has been my biggest selling product.

Day 1 of Karl Burry Photography's 12 Days of Christmas! https://www.karlburryphotography.com/blog/2014/12/day-1-of-karl-burry-photographys-12-days-of-christmas Merry Christmas to you all, I hope you're having you had a great day!


The gremlins have all been sorted, so here we have yesterday's first special offer!


2015 is going to be the year of the print at Karl Burry Photography. Although I love digital photography, the big downside is most people's photos sit on their computers and never see the light of day, I know I'm guilty of this myself with my own personal work.


Photos for Facebook, digital slideshows, etc are all great, but there's still something magical about a printed image from a good laboratory, so today's offer will give you the chance to get a beautiful photobook from your portraits that will be treasured for generations.


Those of you that have seen my photobooks will know they're fantastic quality, these are not some flimsy offerings thrown together by "Happy-Snaps-To-Go" that fall apart before you've even shown all your friends!


Today's Offer: Purchase a Portrait Shoot with me to take place during January or February, and if you purchase all your digital images, I'll include a 24 page A4 custom designed Photobook of your favourite images completely free!


Portrait shoots are £35, which includes a framed desk print, and carry my usual guarantee - if you don't love your images you don't pay.


You can purchase your session here: http://www.karlburryphotography.com/lifestyle-photo-shoot


After purchasing your portrait shoot, give me a call or email quoting "12 days offer 1" and we'll arrange the best time for your shoot.

Everything will be sorted out tomorrow, and today's deal will run for the full 12 days anyway, so no-one will miss out!


I hope you've all had a fantastic Christmas with your friends and family, and aren't feeling quite as full as I am right now.

Cycling's Tour of Britain comes to Wiltshire! https://www.karlburryphotography.com/blog/2014/9/2014-tour-of-britain-in-wiltshire With my preparations for Saturday's wedding almost complete, I took a quick walk to watch the Tour of Britain cyclists pass through the village on stage 6 of the race, from Bath to Hemel Hempstead.


I considered walking to Pewsey and trying to get some shots with the crowds of spectators too, but I didn't really have enough spare time, so opted instead to catch the race as it headed along the B3087 between Pewsey and Milton Lilbourne.


This was my first attempt at cycle photography, a bit outside my normal area of operations, but was great fun and I hope to get the chance to do more in the future. Although there were only a dozen or so of us watching from the same spot, the excitement was fantastic, and I'm told by friends that the atmosphere in Devizes and Pewsey was amazing.


Anyhow, here's a few photos, nothing to set the world alight but enough to whet my appetite to have another go in the future with a bit more planning! The wide angle shots are also out of sequence, I realised after that the time on my cameras had somehow got out of sync, off to sort that now!

Summer Fayre Portrait Displays https://www.karlburryphotography.com/blog/2014/7/summer-fayre-portrait-displays Thanks to everyone who popped by my displays at the Milton Lilbourne Summer Fayre and Canons House Summer Fete at the weekend.

The weather gods weren't on our side on Saturday in Milton, and I spent half the day covering and uncovering framed prints and albums with tarpaulins to keep the rain off! At least it brightened up a bit later in time for the dog show, and a lot of people realised the best place to shelter from the weather was the beer tent!

No such worries on Sunday at Canons House in Devizes, and it was nice to bump into a couple of old work colleagues from my days at Royal Mail, though I will be having words with the person who thought I was part of the scarecrow trail!

I had a lot of interest in my Extended Location Sessions, and I'll be putting more details on here shortly, and thanks to everyone who filled in my portrait survey, it gave me some very useful feedback on what local people are looking for from a portrait photographer.

The winner of the free Location Portrait Session and all their photos on cd worth £295 is Ian Peaple, and the 3 runners-up, who each receive a free Location Portrait Session, including 10 digital images, worth £95, are S. Perkins, Sarah Smith and Charlotte Martin, congratulations to all! I'll be in touch shortly to arrange your photo shoots!

Dog Days - Beautiful Pet Photography in the Vale of Pewsey https://www.karlburryphotography.com/blog/2014/3/dog_photography_wiltshire Dog portrait photography in WiltshireWiltshire_Dog_PhotographyOur beautiful Golden Retriever Jack enjoying a walk in Scotland During the recent awful weather we've experienced, I heard a few tales of people opening their doors in the morning to let their dogs out, only to be met with a bemused look that said "Do you really expect me to go out in that?"

It reminded me so much of Jack, our beautiful Golden Retriever (above enjoying a holiday in Scotland), sadly no longer with us.

If your dog has been as depressed with the weather as much as we have, here's your chance to give him or her (or them!) some pampering and make them a star for the day!

I'm organizing a fantastic promotion for early April which will not only enable dog owners to get some beautiful portraits of their dogs, but will also raise money and much needed awareness for a local charity too.

I'll have a range of specially priced Portrait Collections on offer for the event, including heavily discounted canvases, albums, framed desk prints and high resolution digital files to print yourselves.

I'll post full details shortly, but provisional dates are 5th and 6th April 2014, in Milton Lilbourne, near Pewsey (directions will be given if necessary). Time slots will be limited and will be booked on a first come first served basis, so if you'd like to reserve your photo session just give me a call or get in touch through my contact page.

Lainston House Wedding Photography https://www.karlburryphotography.com/blog/2013/9/lainston-house-wedding-photography Many congratulations to Laura and Nick following their gorgeous wedding day at St Mary's Church, Crawley and Lainston House Hotel, near Winchester on Saturday. A first for Karl Burry Photography too - I've photographed many different modes of transport on a wedding day, but never before a helicopter bringing the Bride and Groom to the reception, piloted by the Groom himself! A very long day for us, but we thoroughly enjoyed being part of their celebrations, pictures to follow soon.

Bishopstrow House, Warminster, Wedding Photography https://www.karlburryphotography.com/blog/2013/8/bishopstrow-house-warminster-wedding-photography Welcome to the new blog of Wiltshire wedding and portrait photographer Karl Burry. I had hoped to transfer my old blog here but that didn't work! So, I'll start afresh, and we'll begin with a bit of fun!

Karl and Elaine had a fantastic day for their wedding at Bishopstrow House, Warminster, and I'll post a selection of their photos shortly, but Karl had asked if I could do them a version of the now famous T Rex wedding photo, so here it is. I thought I'd take it a stage further and make it into a magazine cover. Just so my insurers know, no guests were actually harmed in the making of this photo!
