consider every image one at a time. We don’t scan in batches using
generic settings, just to keep workflow going. We scan so the photographer
can make the most of the images they worked so hard to capture."
With 25 years
experience photographing the landscape of Yosemite, the Sierra Nevada
and the Eastern Coastline, Jeff knows what goes into making a beautiful
photograph. When he joined our staff in 1999, we hired him based on his
knowledge of photography and his aesthetic understanding of light.
images that we scan are about artistic expression, regardless of the type
of image they might be; studio, landscape, architectural or fashion. And
I’m out there making my own artistic expressions. I haven’t
shut myself into a building as a scanner operator, and that’s where
my knowledge of the image ends. I am making my own images, and that keeps
me constantly aware of light, shadow and the nuances of photography."

photograph for 14 years at The Ansel Adams Gallery in Yosemite National
Park gave him an understanding of the level of quality galleries expect

level. I understand that the beginning (the scan) has to be as good

scanned tens of thousands of images on our Tango Drum Scanner. His
images are constantly being reviewed by our imaging department, who
use his scans to make our Standard and Exhibition Prints every day.
This constant feedback means we are constantly refining our scanning
process to deliver scans that will make the best prints possible.
