One might say that photography is my favourite vice!  I originally trained as a reference librarian specialising in iconography. and have been working for nearly 15 years in the digitisation of historic document and photo archives. It’s a truly exciting line of business! 

Based in Chalon-sur-Saône, at our heritage site specialising in historic document and photo archives, I am in charge of digital production. We harness our expert knowledge in analysis and support for digitisation projects by making recommendations, relying on our methodology and coming up with solutions to meet document requirements. I also draft processes to optimise digital processing that factor in document type, on behalf of companies, especially major luxury firms. Their historic archives are carefully preserved at Everial. When we take delivery, I’m utterly delighted to discover treasure hidden within.

To perform these ultra-meticulous tasks, you need to be in touch with grassroots and have a perfect grasp and control of the production chain.  

Handy tip! In an industry like ours, you must above all listen carefully to your client’s needs and reassure them. The documents they entrust to us are precious!
