Archival Photography is specialised, guided by State Government department standards and guidelines. Gerald Steding has recorded a range of items and places considered to be of local, State, National, Commonwealth and World significance.

These archival shoots include detailed and general views using high resolution Canon digital full frame cameras and a variety of high quality Canon L class lenses (Canon's professional range). In addition, Gerald uses Canon tilt-shift lenses for architectural perspective correction and other special  purpose lenses. External flashes include the Canon system flashes as well as Profoto and Elinchrom studio strobes with a variety of light modifiers. Post production is carried out on colour-calibrated monitors using Adobe software.




The Photographic Archival Recordings include an image location plan (AutoCad) and a corresponding catalogue of images. These recordings are printed on large format Epson and Canon printers using high quality photographic archival paper and archivally stable inks. They may be either spiral or perfect bound as requested.
