DE Photo Puts The Action Into Digital Sports And Event Photography And Print Ordering
December 07, 2004, Press Dispensary. DE Photo, the Surrey-based digital sports and event photographers, today launch a website at www.dephoto.co.uk that makes it easy for customers to book coverage of a special event and buy their photos online afterwards. The site consolidates DE Photo’s position as a high profile provider of on-site sports photography in the UK.
The new website offers improved navigation to its predecessor and has a comprehensive ordering system that means customers can buy a whole host of photo products after an event – including prints ranging from 7in x 5in to 30in x 20in, puzzles, mouse pads, key rings and exclusive framed magazine covers - with prices to suit every budget.
Event organisers can use DE Photo’s service to raise additional revenue for an event by offering photo sales to their guests, who can hand-pick the images they wish to keep for posterity. Prints are ordered simply online, printed in less than one minute, and are despatched by next day recorded delivery. At the event itself, DE Photo runs self-contained on-site facilities which provide an additional attraction and allow guests to view and buy images ‘on the spot’.
With over 50,000 photos currently in its database, DE Photo now has unlimited storage capacity to keep event photos online forever. At each event, the photographers take between 500 and 2,000 photos, giving customers a wide selection of action shots.
Mike Moore, managing director of DE Photo, comments: “This is a time of growth for DE Photo, as demonstrated by our expanding network of franchise branches throughout the UK. We have now gained the online capacity to support the high demand of orders received through our website. Even though our main business is derived from our ability to print photos on-site in less than one minute, our improved online facility gives us extra competitive edge.”
