ScanCorner recently worked closely with renowned Perth photographer and AIPP Master photographer Geoff Fisher to revive some of his fascinating archives. Geoff has been the owner of Fisher Photography for more than three decades.
Many of his older works are restricted to the analogue world and can not be easily shared. ScanCorner worked with Geoff to convert a selection of old negatives to digital format to revive these memories.
Geoff has photographed many interesting people including quite a number of the State Premiers and ScanCorner preserved a selection of classic historical photographs including swearing in ceremonies. For example a classic image of Brian Burke (below left) and Peter Dowding (below right) at their respective ceremonies.
Another image that caught our imagination during the scanning of photo’s and negative’s was the image of a customised car photographed at sunset. The spare tyre is being housed in a very unusual place….
The images Geoff had of the time he spent with Hans Tholstrup the Danish born Adventurer also brought back some memories. Geoff joined Hans on one of his adventures taking a motorbike through the Australian outback (from Rockhampton to Perth in 1972). There are many interesting images of this trip, however the one that most fascinated us was the image of Hans getting ready the tow a 4wd.
Each of these images and many more in Geoff’s collection were manually scanned and restored using the standard ScanCorner process. The manual scanning of negatives and photographs to reduce the risk of damage, followed by cropping and colour correction and the ScanCorner technicians then removing scratches, dust or mold that may appear on the scanned image.
