From time to time, any business needs to step back and review what it is they want to be. The digital age has brought rapid change to our industry continuously over the past two decades, and Moldaner's needs to change with it. We will be undergoing a transition over the next few months to focus more on selling value and service, rather than just trying to battle with the big box stores and online warehouses to sell a commodity.
In the past few years, we have focused on providing high quality digital scanning, digital fine art printing, and even some exhibit planning and design. Going forward, this will be our focus. Our customers range from the individual who just wants a nice fine art print for their home or a few slides scanned, to museums and universities needing to digitize large research collections, to the local photographer who needs his exhibit printed, to the local artist who needs short run limited edition fine art prints. And each one will get the same personal service we have always provided.
Therefore, effective on Monday, June 3rd, 2013, we will be implementing new business hours as we reposition ourselves to better serve you.
What WILL change:
Our days of operation - We will be open from 10am-5pm on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday only. We will be CLOSED on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday, except by appointment. Please contact us via phone at 504-866-6757 or email at email@example.com if you need us to accommodate you. You can also message us via the Facebook link on this page.
Our product mix - We will move away from equipment to focus more on consumables and services.
What WILL NOT change:
We are NOT CLOSING - We are a small company, and in order to do this transition properly, we need the time to maintain our production schedule while still making the necessary changes to our operations.
We will still offer color and black and white film, and darkroom paper and supplies as long as it remains viable.
Our level of service - For those of you who have done business with us over the past 45 years, you know the level of personal attention we provide. For those that haven't yet, come check us out and see for yourselves.
If you have need of these services during our transition, rest assured we will still provide them in a normal time frame, and with the same level of service and attention you have always expected from us:
- film developing
- high quality scanning and printing
- custom scanning of rare and delicate items such as glass negatives and lantern slides, old photographs and documents.
- high volume batch scanning of prints, slides or negatives
- fine art giclee prints and canvases
- short run fine art prints
- photo restoration services
- video transfer services
- printing for photographic exhibits
- large archiving projects for museums and universities
Welcome to the Moldaner's Camera and Imaging website! We're glad you're here. Please take the time to check out our many products and services. We hope you find our site informative. We are the only true photo specialty retail camera store left in New Orleans. Please help support local businesses. Although we don't carry the inventory we did pre-Katrina, we can order whatever you may need. Check out our special services, like our archival scanning and digital wide-format printing services.
We are also the ONLY dealer in the South Louisiana/Mississippi area that still stocks traditional black and white darkroom paper and supplies !
In recent years, we have begun specializing in the printing of numerous photographic art exhibits. We will soon be adding a gallery section of some of our projects, to give you a better idea of just what we have to offer in digital printing services.
In the past year, we have printed exhibits that have hung in The New Orleans Museum of Art (" Ancestors and Descendants " - George H. Pepper exhibit), The Collins C. Diboll Gallery ( " In the Blink of an Eye " - Harold Baquet exhibit) at Loyola University's Monroe Library, and The Latin American Library gallery ("Encounters with Antiquity" - Roxanne Davila exhibit) at Tulane University's Tilton Library. We also completed an exhibit that was part of the citywide "ˇSí Cuba!" exhibit in January of 2010.
In addition, we have been involved in ongoing scanning/archiving and restoration projects for the Middle American Research Institute, the Tulane Law School, and the Tulane School of Architecture. Some of these include archiving and reproducing images from glass Lantern Slides, nitrate negatives and 200-year old books.
Most recently, we have completed a 30,000 slide archiving project for a history professor/archaelogist at Tulane University.
