TAKE GREAT PICTURES.

KEEP THEM ORGANIZED.

SNAP. SHARE. REPEAT.

Don’t let thousands of photos keep you from enjoying and sharing the magic moments of your life.

 

You’ve got the pictures but you don’t have the time. We get it. Maybe you are getting “out of space” alerts on your iPhone or computer. Maybe you want to do some photo projects but can’t find the images you want. Or the thought of sorting through 30,000 photos is just too daunting. There’s a school project that needs Megan’s baby photo and you can’t find it. You have to provide a dozen images to the local charity function but they’re the wrong size.

Bluewater Imaging is passionate about empowering people with skills and support to enjoy their photography. Whether it’s as simple as sending out photos as email attachments or as complex as coordinating an entire family’s computer, phone and tablet ecosystem. Over 40 years of photography, printing, and desktop publishing experience give us the tools to help you take control of your photo organizing and viewing. We love pictures and our mission is to make digital photography as simple and enjoyable as we can.

 

WHAT WE DO


Photo Organizing

Our pictures are the time capsules of our lives

Pictures take us back to moments we cherish, people we love, and experiences we want to relive, again and again. And never has it been easier to collect those moments. To capture and share and savor the elusive gems of life. Technology lets us do that in more ways than ever before.

But technology also challenges with a speed and flexibility that fills hard drives, draws on multiple devices, saves photos in many places and teases us to include old printed photos in our database too. It’s common now to have tens of thousands of photos spread across multiple computers and devices.


About Me

Paul bio_square.jpg

Hi, I’m Paul.

I studied photojournalism at the University of Washington and have been involved in the creation and reproduction of images and graphics all my life. Since 1990, I’ve been a user and advocate for computer graphics and for making the technology accessible to everyone. I’ve been a photographer, printer, technical support specialist, and trainer. For almost 5 years I worked at Apple as both a Genius and a Creative in the One-to-One program. More than anything, my passion is empowering people to use the magic of digital imaging to enrich their lives and connect with the world around them.
