Bill and Mary Gordon have been the owners and operators of Photomaker Studios, a wedding and portrait business in Port Clinton, for 35 years. They have recently retired, but wanted to continue to be of service to the community by opening Photomaker Digital Conversions.

“We feel preserving your cherished memories for future generations is a truly worthwhile endeavor. Doing so with great care and skill at a reasonable price is our goal,” said Mary.

Photomaker Digital Conversions can convert old prints, slides, movies and video tapes to a digital format that can be easily viewed on a T.V., a computer or a smart phone. At the same time, converting to digital copies preserves your precious family history from loss, damage and deterioration.

“We all have our memories of the ‘good old days’ but our memories are incomplete and some details are forgotten completely,” said Bill. “But when we see our old pictures, movies and videos, all our past experiences, adventures and good times come to life. The trouble is, old analog media has a very limited life span and once it is gone … it’s gone forever.”

The Gordons believe so strongly in their business motto: Your old photos are deteriorating. Your memories are fading away. Your pictures are your life. We want to be your Digital Life-Savers.

Unlike online conversion businesses, the originals never leave the Gordons’ studio so are not subject to loss or damage in the mail. And every image is individually corrected and adjusted by hand to restore them, as much as possible, to their original condition. Once the Gordons have digitized your images, you are free to make many copies of them to share pictures, movies and videos with the rest of the family.

“Christmas is not far off and if you are the keeper of the family pictures, films or video tapes, you are in a position to give a gift to the entire family that only you can give. A gift that no one will already have and everyone will appreciate.”
