The FilmToaster team is passionate about camera-capturing technology!
In 1996, faced with massive tasks of preserving a collection of an estimated half million film negatives, the inventor began scanning with flatbed scanners. After nearly 15 years he barely made a dent in this collection.
In 2008, the inventor attended a camera scanning PhotoPlus Expo workshop in New York conducted by Peter Krogh, sponsored by Microsoft. He left inspired and determined to fill the void in the equipment gap. In 2010, the inventor began experimenting with various ways of digitizing film using conventional methods and after five years and six prototypes perfected a system that he named, FilmToaster; a very simple and passive platform "black box," enabling digitization of large volumes of films with extremely high resolution.
The Director of Affiliated Corporate Development, is also CEO of several digital imaging related companies. He is a valued technical team member including being a veteran imaging consultant and developer of several technologies in high-resolution imaging systems.
Besides exhibiting in international fine art competitions, many in his portfolio were purchased by the George Eastman House International Museum of Photography and Film for their permanent collection. Over nearly four decades working in photography, he held teaching positions at some of the nations premier institutions. Recently, he conducted technical workshops in Germany and Greece.
