Thomas Carr has extensive experience with medium and large format archival film photography that is required for state and federal historic preservation documentation programs. This includes the Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS), Historic American Engineering Record (HAER), and Historic American Landscape Survey. Over his 40-year career he has documented hundreds of historic sites. Since starting his own consulting business in 2016, he has conducted almost 50 documentation projects. Mr. Carr's experience as a photographer, archaeologist, and historic preservation specialist make him especially qualified to conduct work of this nature. Please see the descriptions below for the different types and levels of documentation. Also feel free to visit his cultural resource management company website.
Level I documentation is done as part of a general cultural resource survey. It is the most basic level of documentation and can be done with a film or digital camera. Prints and/or digital files are stored by the client.
Level II documentation involves the use of a medium format film camera and the production of archival prints. The negatives and prints are archived at state historic preservation offices.
This is the highest level of archival documentation and involves the use of large format film cameras. The negatives and prints are archived at the United States Library of Congress.
