2018 Update and Christmas wishes

Santa riding the Wellington Cable Car into a tunnel by Jo Carter

I haven't blogged a lot this year as it has turned out to be a very busy year digitising and restoring images.  I am fortunate to work with many interesting and wonderful people ranging from individuals with one off jobs to larger scale collections.

There were projects for all sorts of occasions - wedding anniversaries, birthday parties; individual and professional genealogical and historical research projects, small archives, artists and insurance claims.  I provided images for specialist funeral headstones and digital and print displays.  I scanned, photographed and reproduced a whole range of items - documents, artworks, photos, slides, negatives.... making discoveries along the way identifying a tintype and an ambrotype (both unusual in NZ) as well as a photo over 1metre in length.....

Mid year I undertook a course on the Care and Identification of Photographs with Gawain Weaver through the Northern States Conservation Centre to hone my skills in photographic and print identification and storage.  I can now help my clients with preserving their original images as well as dating their photos....

We have also introduced a new service digitising 8mm and 16mm movies...

So from all of us at Carterworks, season's greetings and best wishes for the new year!
