As a photographer who engages in the National Parks Service Historic Documentation Program (HDP), Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS) ,Historic American Engineering (HAER), and Historic American Landscape Survery (HALS) photography projects, I work with a variety of Cultural Resource Management professionals, Historic Preservation Consultants, and State Historic Preservation Offices in order to provide a photographic record of historic buildings that will last for many generations. The main component to all the HABS/HAER/HALS documentation is film. My large format cameras use film that is archivally processed to last 500+ years.
Photographs are made with either 4x5, 5x7,or 8x10 large format cameras using black and white film and producing contact prints. I process film and prints to full archival standards as required by the Secretary of Interiors Standards in my darkroom. I can make reproductions of historic plans, negatives or photographic prints.I am based in Upstate NY and travel all over the United States.
With over 25 years experience, I can photograph any project and submit a final document in a timely and professional manner that is guaranteed to meet with approval of HDP Officials at tthe National Parks Service and ultimately at the Library of Congress.
