Still Photo Services

PRO-TEK’s still image specialists have handled literally millions of images. Working out of our facilities or on-site at your archive, our still image photography process has been proven successful for assets with high cultural, economic and historical value.

Without proper handling and storage, still image photography deteriorates over time. Act wisely and you can preserve your irreplaceable assets, realizing their financial and artistic potential for generations to come.

 Inspection, Cleaning and Repair

In a clean-room facility, skilled technicians offer inspection and repair services for both vault and non-vault customers. Film elements are checked for photographic and physical quality, and carefully cleaned by hand. Findings are listed in a detailed inspection report.

Comprehensive Inventory Management

  • Film elements rehoused in archival sleeves for digitization and inventorying.
  • Logging of unrecoverable images and client-approved de-accessioning of duplicates.
  • Customizable metadata are created and entered into client’s secure asset management system.
  • Elements identified with bar codes and easy-read labels for accurate tracking and monitoring.
