Who we are
CHD is formed by the partnership of two experienced cultural heritage photographers James Stevenson and Ken Jackson. Both have worked in UK National Museums (the V&A and the National Maritime Museum), and have a combined experience of 50 years in this field. This experience of photographing almost every type of cultural object means that CHD has great confidence in satisfying customer needs.

Your archives can be a valuable resource for your current and future business. Traditionally an archive can only be seen by one person, in one place, at any one time. By digitising them you can maximise their potential so that they can be re-used for new products and can be seen by all your customers and staff.
By using ‘state-of-the-art’ scanning equipment CHD can help you digitise your most difficult archive objects. Specialising in the scanning of large, difficult to handle, works on paper, CHD can help you to bring these previously unseen assets to a wide audience.
Converting your paper archives or artwork to digital format can be very difficult. They are unique, fragile, awkward to handle and difficult to access. Based on experience gained by working in UK National Museums, CHD understand these problems and have the skill and expertise to make the digitisation process simple and safe.
We are pleased to be associated with well established companies who recognise the value of their cultural assets and want to make the most of them in a digital format. Our clients have come from many businesses and institutions which have been in existence for many decades, sometimes centuries. Clients will find that CHD respect the measured way that archivists prefer to work. Clients will find that CHD offers a comfortable, none pressured approach to digitisation and recognises that extended production schedules are more appropriate for these valuable collections.
