Archival Photo research -
The National Archives holds hundreds of thousands of photographic
images, many of them royalty-free. These images can be either
copied using a laptop -scanner combination or photographed. Transparency or negative 35 mm
film can also be copied using a professional Nikon LS5000 film scanner. 4"x 5" format negatives
can also be scanned using a special scanner setup.
While I am searching through images, I can use a smart phone camera
to photograph and email samples of these to the client in real
While such photographs are not designed to be used as a final product,
they can be instrumental in choosing the responsive images.
High-resolution images can be either burned to a CD or DVD or
uploaded to a website. In the case that a client wishes to see the
images before the are uploaded or burned to a disc, a lower-resolution
website can be quickly published for
viewing and picking.
I charge $290.00 per day. If the work requires
a lot of additional time at home in the evening, this will have to be negotiated.
All copying media, such as photocopy paper, CDs, DVDs and Mini-DVs are paid for by the client.
