Bringing back those precious memories…..


Hello, and thank you for visiting my site. My name is Lee, and I am based in the heart of North Yorkshire. I’m here to help in bringing back your memories from the videos, negatives, photographs, tapes and slides you have at home.

Over the years, family and friends gave me the nickname  “The Taper”. Why? Because I have the talent, skill and ability to “tape” things like VHS cassettes and audio cassettes onto CDs and DVDs. I can also make digital images from negatives and slides, and scan digital copies of photographs.

Having earned a reputation of producing excellent results in this
field I’m making my passion my profession. I have made the decision to offer my skills to anyone who has any old precious memories stored away in  boxes, draws or cupboards. Let me move them from older formats to modern day digital technology!

You can find some examples of the work I do on the blog section of this site. There are also examples of audio and video conversion on The Taper’s You Tube channel.

Working from my customised studio I’m able to offer an exclusive quality conversion service. I give assured confidential care and attention to handling your original slides, videos, negatives, tapes and photographs. With me you get get the personal, one-on-one touch. I don’t do bulk scanning or high speed transfers.

Thank you once again for visiting my site. I really hope that what I do will be of use to you. My commitment is to do a high-quality conversion job for you at the lowest cost I can possibly do the work for.



Bringing Back Your Memories




To start bringing back your memories simply get it touch with me. You are welcome to call, text, email or use the contact form on this site.

Just let me know what it is that you wish to have converted. Once I understand your requirements I will be able to quote you a very competitive price. Including receipt and delivery, expected turn around time and payment terms.

At this stage I can accept payments by bank deposit, cheque, postal order or PayPal. You can make debit or credit card payments through PayPal, even if you don’t have a PayPal account.

In terms of how to get your material to me – and how I will return it – let’s work out the best way possible between us. Normally I would make use of Royal Mail, but I am always happy to work with your preferred courier and delivery service.

About Me



My name’s Lee, but you are welcome to call me The Taper. I have not only a passion for all things related to what I convert, change and record for you; I’m good at it too. With generous encouragement from friends and family, here I am, ready to work for you!

By using me, you trust me with your precious videos, cassettes, photos, negatives and slides. As you’re trusting me to bring back your memories it’s only fair that you know a bit about me.

You are making use of me because you want to be able to enjoy the videos, recordings and pictures once again – and of course to do so at a fair price.

I carry out work in a studio set up and dedicated to it. It’s just me that has access to it, and I keep it in perfect condition for doing all forms of conversion work.

The most important requirement you have for handling your memories is trust. Well, if I couldn’t then I wouldn’t last very long doing this. I am a professional person with more than 15 years working in management in the corporate banking sector, more recently I have been active in website consultancy. This has let me build a name known for personal and professional trust.

One thing I’ve always lived by is a phrase a dear old friend taught me – if you always tell the truth then you never have to remember what you said. If you have any questions or a query about me and what I do before you use my services, please feel free to ask. I will answer in this same spirit.
