For those of you that may not already know me, my name is Larry Guyer. 
I am the former marketing director for Better Light, Inc., the scanning back manufacturer.  After leaving this full-time position, I formed Archetype Imaging with several other Better Light owners that specialized in art reproduction applications.  We continued to work with Better Light owners and others doing art reproduction for artists, museums, or libraries, and offering installation, training and consulting on specialized photographic equipment packages.  My career focus has continually evolved to better serve my past, current and future clients.  I am very excited about the new products and services that we can offer under the umbrella of Archetype Imaging.

Better Light is no longer manufacturing their scanning backs, so we are now importing the new Rencay scanning back from Germany and continue to sell some used Better Light products as well. We have recently assumed the sale of parts and accessories for Better Light and coordinating the service and repair for Better Light scanning backs.

With our emphasis on art reproduction, we are also representing Tarsia Technical Industries. TTI has designed and built high-quality, American-made reprographic workstations for industrial, academic and cultural heritage organizations for over 25 years.

To complete our ability to provide a full turnkey package of photographic equipment we joined the Harwin Camera team and now have access to all of the major camera brands, including PhaseOne, Canon, Nikon, Hasselblad and Sinar, plus a full range of lighting equipment, monitors, studio accessories, ink jet printers and supplies.

Regardless of the products that I have sold over the years, I have always positioned myself as a “personal shopper” for my clients. I take each opportunity very personally and want to provide my customers with the equipment options that are right for their work and comfortable for their budget. And, more importantly, the relationship doesn’t end with the delivery of the equipment. It is important that the buyer remains delighted with his purchase decision and continues to be successful in his photographic work.

Contact us for a no-obligation, free consultation and quote. A responsible search for your ideal digital capture system should include all available options…and you will find that Archetype is a resource you can count on to help you select the very best products, at the right price, with outstanding personalized support.

Our Clients' Feedback:


Once again, many thanks for the very helpful and professional way you have dealt with me.
I have been very impressed.  P. Nugent, London, UK


Larry has continued to make himself available remotely for questions which has helped immensely with keeping our work on time and on budget. I highly recommend Larry's services for anyone looking for imaging hardware setup, training, support and consulting services. 
R. Stibravy, Vancouver, BC Canada


You helped us establish a workflow that fit our needs, taking into consideration available resources, the nature of the materials we'd be scanning, and project/program goals for output. I do wish we had had more time to delve into intermediate and advanced issues, but I suppose no training session is long enough.  B. Dietz,  Chapel Hill, NC


Larry's instruction made immediate sense and saved me an incalculable amount of effort and time. Larry can build a product lighting setup like you cannot believe. I am a believer. Hire him, you will learn a LOT.  M. McGilvray, Sacramento, CA
