    With John Bakers roots in retail, commercial and technical photography, there is an unusual depth and mix of knowledge. Coupled with over 25 years experience with data and document capture, (whilst project managing large document management system implementations,) this experience lends itself to digital photography.

    InPictura uses digital techniques almost entirely, but is never afraid to dip into the older analogue ways, and use ordinary camera film as a medium if required. Specialist subject areas include conversion of photographic collections, technical photography including microfilm, and specialist processes.


    InPictura promotes John Bakers own images, and once the scanning project is complete, will also be used to market and promote a collection of glass plates owned by the principal, and shot by an unknown photographer between 1911 and 1932.
