My name is Geraldine Baum. I’ve organized major photography collections and will bring my expertise to you to create an organized, beautiful and shareable family archive.
I founded THE PHOTO TAMERS when I realized that after years of working as a professional photography archivist my own personal archive was far from organized. Following the passing of all four of our parents and inheriting their large archives of photos, tapes and papers, I realized we were living with thousands of photos in dozens of boxes and albums and on countless drives - and that information was at risk of being lost forever. I wanted everything to be organized and not overwhelming. I also wanted beautifully preserved memories and family history to pass onto my daughter. In addition to my own family archive, I began organizing the personal archives of the photographers I work for as well as friends - and found this aspect of photo organizing extremely interesting and rewarding. I joined an amazing organization, the Association of Personal Photo Organizers - and I felt as if I found my tribe. Their support, resources and professional development have given me the path to create and grow a sustainable business - and THE PHOTO TAMERS was born.
We are based in Pasadena, CA and work in person throughout the Los Angeles and Orange County. We look forward to working with you and thank you for reading our story!
