What Questions Should You Ask When Hiring a Professional Wedding Photographer?

In this article we discuss the importance of hiring a professional for the job, as opposed to leaving it to your guests or letting a friend with a good camera have a go at it for you, and what are the questions you should ask. Many people describe their wedding day as one of the most important days of their lives, so it makes sense to want to record that day with stunning wedding photography. Here are a few thoughts on why hiring a professional is a good idea and what questions to ask.

Insurance and Back Up Equipment

A professional wedding photographer will be covered for all eventualities. That means a spare camera, back up batteries, and back up memory cards. The chances that they will actually be needed are slim, but they are there. It’s the same with insurance; if something goes wrong, a professional is covered. Make sure your wedding photographer is fully insured for both liability and professional indemnities.

An Experienced Wedding Photographer Should Have Been to Numerous Weddings!

An experienced wedding photographer will have a good idea of the ins and outs of a wedding day and everything that goes along with them. A professional wedding photographer should have been to countless weddings, and photographed many more, and therefore know just where to look and when! Whether it’s sneaking in the perfect romantic shot of a tender moment between the bride and groom, or catching a mother in law wiping the tears from her eyes, they should be there and ready with the camera. These moments are priceless, and you should have them captured.

More Than Just a Camera

Although having a great camera is a good place to start, beautiful wedding photography is about so much more than that. Professional photographers have spent hours training, and clocked up even more hours in experience, making them experts at what they do. From composing a shot to editing it afterwards, these skills take time, effort and a pinch of talent to perfect.

Full Range of Services from a Wedding Photographer

In addition to wedding photography services, a good wedding photographer will also offer a variety of optional extras. These include pre-wedding engagement shoots and a range of bespoke wedding photography albums, books, and framed pictures. If you’re looking for a professional and experienced wedding photographer, remember to ask the right questions first!

Pack the Lighter Objects First

If you pack the lighter and smaller objects first and then the heavier items on top you’ll find you have more space. This method of packing allows the smaller items to become more compact thanks to the weight and pressure of the items above as you pile them into the skip. This means there will be more space on the top of the skip for the larger items.

Start with the Right Size Skip

When you decide to book skip hire, it is important to consider the different sizes of skip available.

The Innovation of Dorin

Established in 1918 as a manufacturer of machine tools, broaches and adjustments, air compressors and repairers of motor vehicle engines, Officine Mario Dorin began producing open type compressors for refrigeration systems in 1932. Soon, the latter became the company’s core business.

In 1952, thanks to the large business capacity of the founder Mario Dorin and his mechanical intuition, the company began producing semi-hermetic reciprocating compressors for air conditioning and refrigeration. In 1970, to accommodate an ever-increasing production, the company changed location and moved to the present facility of approximately 20,000 square meters. Today, thanks to the commitment and the know-how of the children and grandchildren of Mario in synergy with all internal and external collaborators, Dorin has consolidated its international reputation and continues to grow, producing about 50,000 piston compressors a year.

Between 1983 and 1998, OMD expanded its offering by adding to its range of compressors, machineries with 6 cylinders (30 to 50 Hp with displacement from 84 to 138 m3/h) and those with 8 cylinders (60 to 75 Hp with displacement from 184 to 200 m3/h).
In 1998, it was added to the extensive range of products, the model 16 pistons with its 150 Hp and displacement up to 400 m3/h, compressor that today, although no longer in production, remains unique in its type, one of the Dorin flagships of the entire history of refrigeration.
The real innovation of Dorin was born in 1999, the year in which new technologies have been developed such as the application of frequency modulation and the use of CO2 as a refrigerant. Since 2004 OMD is the main reference manufacturer of CO2 compressors for trans-critical application, recognized throughout the world in every commercial sector. Soon Dorin became a reference point for the use of CO2 in sub-critical phase too.

During the same period were designed and manufactured compressors Series HI, specially designed for the electronic control of frequency, products which have now been successful in those markets concerned with implementing a strict policy of energy saving. In 2008, the birth of the compressors H4, H5, H6 and H7 have completed the entire Series H.

Established over 90 years ago and managed for more than 50 years by the Dorin family, Dorin is now ready to face the challenges of the third millennium creating technologically perfect, modern and reliable products. For more information, visit dorin.com

The Loading and Unloading System Of A Compressor

Starting and Operating a Compressor Safely

Electronics are clever inventions that have changed how mankind does things by making work easier. Applying this science to operate machines has created a whole new world of mechanics and robotics. Where a simple lever is mechanized through electronic systems, then there arises a complexity in its functionality. It is why a simple carriage pulled by a horse gave the first idea of a steam engine car. Mankind needed a carriage that could pull itself instead of burdening the horse. To operate this car you need the training to understand its basic functionality. Now focus your attention on a lever which is wired to electronics, such as a crane. There is an electric current that enables it to operate, and all of a sudden a simple task of lifting also requires you, a trained personnel to safely operate it. But, what if it is automated and a software is responsible for deciding when to lift and when to drop the load? It means, that no one is required any longer to sit and control it.

The Bock Compressor Software

A compressor is a mechanical device that employs the law of physics, particularly regarding air pressure. Since its invention, there have been a few improvements on how it works, with the most recent one being the use of Carbon Dioxide as a refrigerant. The air is compressed by the high pressure until it is hot and fluid and when it meets the air at room temperature it cools and lowers its temperature. Once this fluid (refrigerant) comes into contact with warm air, it absorbs the heat thereby refrigerating the space/box/room. Once this cycle happens, the gas evaporates back to the compressor. Now, for this to happen, there needs to be an electric current that facilitates the compression and the cycle is automatic. However, for larger compressor systems, there is an issue with electric current, that can damage the compressor. In order for the compressor to load or unload, there is a functioning motor which, when the pressure is very high can absorb up to 8 times the normal electric current. This can be damaging, which is why Mario Dorin has invented a system that does not rush this process during start-up and allows the motor to run or reach its standard acceleration while it regulates the pressure accordingly.

The future of the Oil & Gas industry

With a move general world-wide move towards carbon-neutral forms of power, it seems like an anachronism that oil and gas exploration continue around the world, however, may proponents argue that there will always be a requirement for these forms of fuel. Regardless of the new and emerging forms of transport, we’re still to achieve an affordable eco-friendly alternative to the trains, plains, and auto-mobiles (and other forms of transport) we so addicted to. If we’re going to travel, we’re going to ultimately be using fossil fuels – at least for the foreseeable future. Therefore, oil and gas exploration continue as normal.

One of the companies specialising in energy field is Total. You may recognise the name from the high street, however, many of the old ‘petrol stations’ have now closed being replaced by cut-price supermarket petrol stations. For this global company, Chemical enhanced oil recovery (also known as chemical EOR) is an ever-growing field of application as is hydrocarbon exploration. Opponents of the ongoing oil and gas exploration argue that many unique and marine habitats are being damaged by the engineering work, leaked oil, and escaped chemicals from these exploratory bases especially as it appears that the majority of new areas being explored is at sea. However, proponents of this drilling argue that technology now means that oil and gas exploration has never been cleaner or safer for the environment. The following shows a map of Total’s 2016-2018 high-impact exploration program:

Ultimately, however, it’s up to use to decide what happens to the oil & gas industry. Do we abandon the freedom we’ve become so used to? Or do we continue living our lives as we have with our reliance on fossil fuels for work and leisure? Until electric-powered planes become commercially viable and electric cars like Tesla become affordable, we rely only have one choice.

At Mr Rubble Skip Hire they’re passionate about doing their best, not only for their customers but also for their community and the Earth. They do this by making recycling a top priority, in fact if you hire a skip with them, you don’t need to spend time separating the waste or worrying about where the rubbish will end up. Back in 2006, their state-of-the-art recycling centre opened allowing them to efficiently ensure they recycle as much of the waste as possible.

Their team care about the environment and are committed to doing what they can to keep the world clean. They pride themselves on the quality of the service they provide and ensure this continues even after they’ve taken the full skip away, so rest assured knowing that all of the waste is dealt with in a legal and environmentally friendly way.

They recycle to help:

Lessen pollution – recycling and reusing materials is a great way to reduce pollution by avoiding new products being unnecessarily created.

Avoid landfills – By recycling they can reduce the amount of waste that is going into landfill. Landfill is very damaging to the environment and wildlife so if the waste doesn’t have to go to landfill they make sure it won’t.

Reduce costs – When you consider recycling from a financial standpoint, it costs considerably less to repurpose materials than to create products from new materials. Large scale recycling = big savings for businesses. If landfills continue to increase in size then communities will be taxed more in order to cover the fines and landfill taxes associated with exceeding landfill allowances. I’m sure you’d agree this is something we’d all like to avoid so choose a responsible skip hire company to help meet your skip needs. A responsible skip hire company does not mean an expensive skip hire company – take a look at www.mrrubble.co.uk for their competitive skip hire prices.
