As you may know we have been closing down all of our old climate controlled "FILM" archives for quite some time. We are NOW down to the last storage archive and then all our Portrait and Wedding negative film and proofs from 1980 to 2004 will be gone forever.
We will discarding all remaining 4x5 and 5x5 Color Previews Prints (Proofs) and Negatives on December 16. Many full session proof sets that were taken during photo sessions and not originally chosen for printing may still be available including nice alternate poses, silly faces and smooshie hugs not to mention all the formal portraits and candid photos taken of Weddings and Mitzvahs and I'm sure a few blinks as well :)
I have maintained millions of these non-digital negatives and proof prints all these years and am making this final notice as a courtesy. It is very time consuming and costly to travel off site, maintain, locate and retrieve old files. If you would like to purchase full proof sets containing dozens of images and/or negatives, or would like to re-order prints from these images, please act now as we will be removing the remaining files ib December 16.
Unfortunately I cannot fit this archive in my studio in order to have everyone come down and look through them nor do I have the manpower or time to go through the millions- yes millions of negatives I have from this period to accommodate displaying them so if you want them please respond today.
There are also many Video Tape Masters, Proofs and Negatives from Weddings available as well.
Most photographers of the day discarded their proofs and negatives after 2 years. I have always felt 2 years was too soon. After all, things change in a twinkling of an eye: photos get lost or damaged, some decide later to get wall prints and people grow older and we lose them. I have always felt a special obligation to my clients and the trust and honor they placed in me to preserve their most cherished of memories over many years. I love photography and people so much that I wished I could have done it all for free.
However, after spending tens of thousands of dollars to store the older negatives and proofs in a climate controlled facility with continually escalating storage expenses, and if there is no interest in these old images, I must finally close the last storage archive.
BUT I'm not leaving you there. If you choose to take them we will search for your negatives or proofs so you can save and enjoy them or you can return them in the future if you want me to make prints for you or scan them yourself.
Please Act NOW if you are interested. Don't wait until the last minute, these files take time to locate.
Please call or email if you have any questions.
All the best!
