Mitch Goldstone, president and CEO of ScanMyPhotos.com, believes the loss of old family photos is preventable.

Goldstone’s company has digitized more than 600 million pictures since it started in 1990 and was recently mentioned in the The Washington Post and on Oprahmag.com as a recommended source for scanning photos.

How One Road Trip Led to a Quest to Build a Family Archive

Ever dream of traveling the country to experience each region’s unique lifestyle and cuisine, take in the grandeur of the national parks, and soak up everything our major cities have to offer?


Well, one of our customers, Seth Johnson, did just that with his wife – and that trip was the reason they got their photos scanned. While most people might get their photos scanned after a major trip, they had their photos scanned beforehand. When he explained why, it made perfect sense:


“My wife and I got married in our mid-30s, and we both had a large number of photos. Two years after we got married, we decided to move out of our house and into an airstream trailer and travel around the country. We didn’t have room to take much with us, but we knew if we had our photos scanned we could take them. So we did! They were sitting on a hard drive, and we’d plug the hard drive into Apple TV and watch our photos.”

Preserving Your Photos and Film with ScanMyPhotos.Com

President and CEO Mitch Goldstone of ScanMyPhotos.Com on the TechtalkRadio ShowMitch Goldstone, President/CEO
ScanMyPhotos.Com. The interview.


Technology over the years has made it easier to save your photographic images and film reels to share with future generations. Photos are a great way to relive great moments from the past and remember the way a town looked, the Alma Mater, the first car, the children as they grow up over the years. I have had a friend send me photos that over the years have been torn, degraded in color quality or damaged by water. For those with photos before 1985, the general way we looked at them was in Photo Albums which filled bookshelves and entertainment nooks.
