PixAl is the business name of Alan Jacobs - that's me!

I have been taking photographs for much of my life and turned it into a profession in 2008.

Born and raised in Kent, l live now in South Gloucestershire.

As well as selling my own images at photography and craft fairs, l undertake commissions to photograph small celebrations and special events. In addition, l can scan and restore images from old film negatives, slides and prints.

My photographs have appeared in Record Collector magazine, Sony Entertainment magazine, local papers, travel websites, blogs and holiday brochures.

Currently, l use Sony DSLRs, Sony NEX and Fujifilm X series cameras with a selection of new and vintage lenses.


As a general guide, l charge commissions/event photography/portraits at £100 for the first hour and £50 for each subsequent hour, or part of. Time spent on post-production work will be charged as part of the total time spent on the job. This will be minimal

Restoration work on old photos, slides and negatives is charged at a flat rate of £30 per hour.

These prices include my time and travel within the Bristol and Bath area and a CD of the images produced.

I can produce high quality prints for you from A4 up to A3+ size. These are relatively expensive - £15 to £35 each - but the quality is far superior to that provided by most high street or internet companies. Please contact me for a more specific quotation.
