Monte Luke Studio has photographed in and around Sydney since 1920.
We have an archive of negatives and photographs from 1969.
If you, your family or friends had weddings or christenings covered by Monte Luke Studio and would like to purchase the original negatives, we can do our best to search out the required negatives for you from the archives.
We have a couple of options available.
A. Outright Negative Purchase – $395 incl GST
We will pull all your wedding negatives from the archives and release them to you with a signed document handing over the copyright. You can then take them to a printing company of your choice to have them reproduced.
B. Scanning & Outright Purchase – $895 incl GST
We can organise a full set of digital scans of the negatives for you. This cost includes sourcing the negatives from the archives, scanning them into a digital format on a CD for printing reproduction, supplying the CD as well as the original negatives and handing over the copyright for their reproduction.
From the CD scans, Monte Luke Studio can then produce high quality enlargements using archival paper and inks and the latest printing techniques (print pricing details on application as customised to suit you). Alternatively, you can take the CD to a printing company of your choice to have them reproduced.
All we require to proceed with the archive search is a $100 deposit, refundable in the instance where we cannot locate your negatives. On location of your negatives, this deposit becomes part of the above cost options.
