was very nice to meet you yesterday, thanks for sending the images over so quickly… they are fantastic.
This photograph is a masterpiece.
You should do a very limited editon at a very large size and flog it to the banks that feature in it
Hi Hugh, the images look fantastic! Everyone was really pleased here
and the images were used by our director the very next day in a
Thank you for doing such a good job so quickly and well. it was lovely to meet you
Thanks so much Hugh. It looks so much better than the original!
Here’s what I did with the illustration you photographed so well. If you’d like a larger version, in any format, please ask.
Will settle your (very reasonable) bill on the morrow.
See you again,
One Another Ltd
Happy new year!
Thank you for doing such a lovely job with the Red Shoes print. I am very happy with how it came out.
About another painting
It's probably best you re-shoot the painting, so that would need to be added to the quote(s).
I have a professionally-shot TIF and JPG, but I know you could do a much better job, and I imagine you'd be happier working from your own shots (is "shots" the correct lingo?)

Dear Hugh Gilbert
My late husband Ivor Abrahams, whom you photographed in the past for the Royal Academy, died in January this year.
They used one of your great photographs of Ivor in his London studio for their website.
It really is such a great picture. I need similar studio shots for a sculpture show at the Mayor Gallery in January 2016
Hi there Hugh and thanks ever so much for the great photo record of our ditches here.
Tony and Vivien Whitbread
You've not all met, but thanks to your various pieces of amazing help today we have just published the Chelsea Arts Club 'Present to the Future' brochure and animation. Thank you all so much for your kindness and patience, particularly in the last fraught three days!
Very particular thanks to Dan (and Rob and Joe) for the amazing animation and to Simon for the truly wonderful brochure; and a special shout out to Hugh, Stephen and Sarah who all rode to the rescue in various ways in the last 12 hours.
I'll be in touch with Rob and Simon again on Monday re a few tiny tweaks (and printing in Simon's case) but in the meantime, as I say, a thousand thanks to you all.
All very best
I especially enjoyed Hugh Gilbert’s panorama session, in which he stepped us through making a panorama of the group, discussing the range of equipment and software available and imparting lots of tips along the way.
Hugh, thank you so much. The images are beautiful! We have listed them and shall work on them this afternoon. J&J.
Brilliant! All in and working many thanks!
Thanks again for today, it's been so useful. I have attached two of our scans from today, the first full programme I scanned in low-res, one low-res photo and one from this afternoon.
Thank you so much for that picture! It's already up and fits perfectly on the wall!
thanks for this - looks superb!!
The photos are brilliant
The one we have chosen to use for posters and publicity is 1817
Melinda Huges and Jeremy Limb
Well done again, Hugh. The more I look at these pictures, the more they impress, enhanced in no small measure by your masterly editing
In haste -
Great stuff. Pending Vimeo, I’ve downloaded from WeTransfer and it looks good on my big plasma screen too. Can’t wait to see the blue one.
thanks and best,
What a brilliant photo !
Shows EVERY detail !!
Things are going swimmingly here in san Fran...I will send you an ad they are putting in a local mag...the Americans are so professional and the gallery guys fun to work with...
They have re-named the show by my subtitle for Hanging Out (An Affectionate Archive). I think it works really well and carries a bit more 'weight' in print...
Are you meeting up with Hannah this Thursday? If not, can we come and see you next Thursday? I will have another print order for you now that I have seen what SFAE thinks will sell.
We can also talk about the archive then....let me know how your schedule is please...
Everyone LOVES your prints of M and R with the red balloons, Mick with sunglasses, Neil in the car, and Bonnie!
Prints arrived safely (excellent wrapping!)> They look great and I like the
Hope we might get a few more orders on the back of these.
Hope all well
Dearest One,,,,a perfect photo of the Halle,, many thanks to you-----see you tomorrow.
Love n hugs
Thanks for that Hugh,
It was good to see you and thank you for doing such good photos - sorry I was in a bit of a rush. See you soon.
I've got them and they look great! Thanks! :D xx
The pictures are quite amazing,I didn't know such photography was possible! I'm sure my Polish niece will be restored when she finally receives copies and of course other family members in (Poland (and France) may decide they too want copies.
It's also very good that we now have the possibility of reproducing the other pictures, if Adam and James wish to do so. I have had great pleasure looking at the photos of them-much more accessible!
My caption with tribute to you!!
The lighter image on the right was originally a Polaroid of Mick that i took in 1976, but my printer, Hugh Gilbert, made a double image as a homage to Robert Mapplethorpe.
I liked it so much that I kept it this way. It's fun to play around with images sometimes. Mick took a Polaroid of me at the same time.
I would like to take a moment to thank you for taking the time to speak at this year’s conference. I know that I am not alone when I say that your presentation a real highlight of the day. Seeing new technology, show us things in new ways is, after all, what photography strives for. The opportunity to view visually stunning panoramas was also greatly received.
Thank you for supporting the Association, and I hope to see you at further AHFAP Conferences and events.
It was successful thanks, they love the view below, so we are going with this one. We very quickly added some more sky to it for the meeting.
They are keen for a dusk/night shot. Will call you shortly.

I appreciate you photographing the painting.

Crocker Art Museum
Thanks for being so wonderful to work with- everyone loves the prints!
Just a note of thanks for yesterday’s shoot of Lynne “Moss” - got some really great ones in there and she’s genuinely pleased with the results.
I shall see you on Monday, and I can't tell you how much I admire what you're doing for us. The Chairman is coming in on Tuesday, so I shall introduce you to him.
The Garrick Club
Thank you for the images, they are super!
All the best,
The Garrick Club
I have just been looking at your lovely Panoramas of Artists studio’s, a really fantastic way of placing people in the context of their work!
I’ll look forward to hearing from you tomorrow,
That looks great thanks Hugh. Enjoy your trip. Hopefully see you at the show.
ps thanks again for poping the print to the club :)
You are a star … and a very twinkly, bright star at that!
Jo Rochard Messums
I picked up the photographs last night. Thank you so much for a fine job. I have left my new little book of verse in your pigeon hole by way of a thank you.
What a very efficient service you run
Love the two prints you did. A million thanks
OMG they are BRILLIANT !
I will show them to Jeremy this afternoon and we will chose a few !
Thanks so much !
Oh, Hugh .....it made me cry! Beautiful. Bless you. xk
Slight delay opening the images, had to use high powered technology elsewhere to unlock it and so forth….
As usual they're excellent. Really good job.
Thanks so much. Especially appreciate you joining them all together as well for no extra charge
All the best
The top image of Angus is incredible!!!
I think the image of Bonnie is still a little blue and saturated, if Hugh has time to do anything more it would be great, but otherwise he is a master genius!!! Love him!!
I managed to download the TIFF. Excellent quality. Thank you.
The Photographs are Absolutley Fantastic to the point that I did not think that I had painted the pictures.....!!!!! Many many Thanks.....i will be setting the new WebSite Girl into action and realy looking forward to this project......(& the idea of web log...)
It was great Fun having You down here......Much better than talking to Molly and Ralphino...........!!!!
See You at The Party....etc...etc......Should be a lark...!
All Best for Now,
Firstly I am delighted with the Archers prints - can you please confirm the cost to me in varying quantities of making up the edition of prints.
Thanks so much
Thank you very much!!!
I am absolutely thrilled!!!!
I have been uh-ing and ah-ing with every new photograph that opened - wish you could have heard me.
May I come over on Thursday?
Tomorrow a few more paintings are being picked up from the studio, so I have to be there rather early.
See you soon!
All good wishes,
Hugh, I collected the print yesterday. It's superb, an excellent job. Thanks a lot.
I'm transferring the money to your bank today.
I am exhibiting the original drawing over the summer. With a bit of luck I'll get a few orders for prints. Can I assume that roughly £80 will be your charge per print?
All the best, Chris
Just a short note to thank you very much for such fine quality.
HUGH U R HUGELY FANTASTIC!
Response to new Beggars Banquet image
It was a pleasure to meet you, and these look fantastic.
In order to help us decide exactly what to do about printing, can you in due course let us know the difference in price between printing on paper and on canvas?
Your pictures are amazing.
Thank you for everything.
Waiting to hear from you.
I've just looked at the drawings you sent through. Thank you SO much! You've done a really fantastic job, I couldn't have hoped for better. I've tried so many different ways of scanning/ photographing these drawings and nothing worked. These look great though!!
Thank you thank you,
Being at the vanguard of this technology, Hugh Gilbert and Phil Conrad have acquired invaluable experience in utilising this resource in the most cost effective and efficient manner. The access, mobility and highest quality photography provides an invaluable reference that hitherto has not been possible.
Moreover, this can be made available to Clients and provide an incredible database for future referencing.
For major works, the ability to use such reference documentation avoids ambiguity and provides infinitely superior information for all manner of operation including tendering for major operations.
Hugh and Phil are pre-eminent in this field. Coupled with the ability to secure swift approvals (an OSC) in this tightly ever regulated arena, they are now arguably one of the leading firms in this field.
Celador Consulting Ltd.
Great picture hugh - thanks so much.
How'd you get all the edges parallel from such close range?
Thank you again for the shoot, we love what came out!
Anthony Stern Glass
Thank you indeed. A new experience to add to my life's portfolio of memories!
Olly - many thanks for "fluffing-up."
With kind regards,
Yes Hugh that looks pretty good on my screen and very true to colour as well. Well done. Sorry about making a meal of it. However I have learnt about the neutral grey and outside lighting. I think the kodak colour patch I used was somewhat faded and old so yanking it was probably the right thing to do.
Perfect job done thanks very much again. I owe you a drink !
Thanks so much Hugh - that’s absolutely fantastic - beautiful light!
Please could you send a hi-res to Simon Rendall for possible Yearbook consideration.
I really enjoyed attending your workshop at the conference last month, and I am hoping to make some panoramas of my own in the coming months. Would it be possible to get a copy of the photo you made of our group? I was in the 2nd session on the Wednesday.
WOW Hugh the gerri and looking down series looks really great, I love the background colour.
Paul Arden’s Diary photographs
So smooth was the operation that I was making coffee at the time and didn't even notice it had happened!! They are simply wonderful - warm, engaging, characterful. Really beautiful portraits. Thank you so very much Hugh
No one could quite believe the quality of the print they got on Sunday, after chapel at Knole. They look so good, and taking the background colour across the border makes a lot of difference. And all beautifully trimmed, and interleaved, and lovely! Thank you very much. I have another £100 for you: I hope we will see you soon.
Love from us all, Simon
just seen the pics and they look really great so thank you. If you could invoice Harper Deyong that would be great, I think you have my details.
I m going to get the pieces collected tomorrow by Flight Logistics. Do you have some wrapping for them?
You're a legend thank you!
Lot's of positive responses from Stan's children. I have sent them the vimeo link.
What an impeccable service you run, Mr G. How about tomorrow - may I come to Gwynne Rd to pick em up? About 12 ish suit you, just to run thru sizes & tell you what's to come. SX.
First print just arrived, it looks perfect. Great quality, identical to the first edition.
Thanks for doing it so promptly.
I have also received the large images via web transfer. Not being very skilful in matters of IT I will have to wait for my partner to show me how to access it. I look forward to it.
Thanks for everything
All the best
You are an angel Hugh! And fabulous! And FAST!!!
It's ferier time so we went to a bullfight last night. Extraordinary. Public torment, torture and execution of 6 bulls. I'm still very conflicted about that but I couldn't take my eyes off the action. I wish I had a better camera sometimes.
See you soon…
I'm so pleased with the prints, especially those that took some time to get colour-right, but now they are spot on.
Regarding the 'Earth from Space' one, done from old colour tranny, looking at other 'red border' ones, I think the white bloom is actually light reflection on the glaze. So I'd be grateful if you would do two more large ones, size height 35cm, with the red cleaned up somewhat.
I shall be at the club tonight around 6-7.30 and again Sunday evening, possibly on Saturday too (can't keep me away!). Or could pop round to your studio, whatever suits you.
Again many thanks for superb prints!
Good morning Hugh
I have just downloaded the new files!
It's so exciting!!!
The image of White Gold captures the painting perfectly! I am so happy.
It works so well - the contrasts between lights and darks, the reflections, the subtleties of colour in the sky. everything is just beautiful. Thank you!!!
Thanks so much for dropping in the USB - everyone loves the video.
Let me know all your details and I'll then get the video added to the website etc.
Many thanks - the drone was amazing to watch and the footage is awesome.
The photos of the illustrations are perfect, thank you.
Will settle by return.
See you later.
One Another Ltd
Amazing ! Thank you so much sweetheart xx
Many thanks for coming in this morning. The photographs are wonderful.
Thank you again for all your work and help, and yes, I do hope we will keep in contact.
All good wishes,
I am just now writing my report to my institution about the conference at the Rijks and was currently writing about your workshop, which was great. That reminded me, you said you would send us the 360 portrait of my group and I just wanted to follow up on that. I believe I was in the second slot on the first day – Will Michels.
Museum of Fine Arts, Houston
Many thanks for the images. They have arrived safe and well and are a great size. Fantastic.
Thank you very much for your mail.
Just now, a few minutes ago I discovered your wonderful pictures and the two brochures. They had been put in my office, but in a place, where I would never look. In other words, they had been here practically all the time, but ‚hiding‘. I am very happy to see them, very beautiful. Thank you very much.
Dedo Weigert Film GmbH
Payment for the prints has been made to you today. Signing and delivery to commence (white gloves and all) this weekend! Thanks for a beautiful job.
ThAnK you for the panorama images and footage. They are fantastic!!. I am guessing I can pass these for the book?
If you get a moment I would love a photo of the robot arms folding a leaf and a portrait of our team, when you can.
Please let me know if I am to go ahead and pass 'photographs by Hugh Gilbert of RoboFold’ to: press online, print and publications.
Should I cc you on these occasions or should I just notify you?
Sounds like you are having a busy time, I hope it is exciting..
Many thanks indeed. They look great. Cheers
Thank you for Tom
A million thanks for all the work you did last week. Johnny is delighted with the new high res.
Would it be possible to send me a folder with all the Holland Park pix (Mick and me) in it together. Just a low res version for me.
I want to keep them separate from the others.
In Shropshire. back late Tuesday. xx
Wunderbar, wunderbar. Du bist ein Ubermensch!
I've just had a quick look. It looks terrific. Thank you soooo much. You're a star. In a rush. car has died. Life goes tits up sometimes.
Darling-----it looks perfect, you have done a magnificent job, many thanks. Just have to hope it sells well then we can celebrate with a new frame
Dear Bella and Hugh,
Liz has forwarded me the wonderful pictures of Basil's new paintings. I was wondering whether you had any very high res images of these new works as would be interested in potentially using one of these for the poster, 'Step Up On' would be really lovely to use. If you could let me know if a high res version of this is available that would be great. Our designer is working on designs currently.
Thanks so much for sending the high res Beattie images - they are super.
What a very efficient service you run.
Hugh, thanks for this.
Your images look very good.
Thanks for your help.
All the best
Hugh Temest Redford
Disc arrived this morning, thank you. You did a great job in restoring those murky 40-year-old transparencies.
