What

We Do
WE HELP YOU USE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHIC PAST TO FINANCE THE FUTURE

Many people call the Rogers Photo Archive the industry leader in preserving, digitizing and monetizing historic photography.

We disagree.

Why? Because there is no "industry" for what we do. There is no other company that can restore, scan, and digitally organize entire photographic archives on a no-cost basis to the publications, institutions, and photographers who own them. Until now, most publications and photographers have not digitized their print and negative libraries because of the tremendous up-front investment required to digitize and input metadata on millions of pictures. RPA's business model removes that impediment by leveraging its connections in the world of photography collectors to finance the digitization process. We then provide our partners with a perpetual income source through a 50-50 split of profits on the licensing of the digital images. At the Rogers Photo Archive, we help you use your photographic past to finance the future.
