Precision Photography Services


Forensic Digital Imaging

Professional Photography Training

Professional photographers are a dime a dozen.  FDI is different in that we specialize in precision photography, which requires advanced training and expertise.  FDIs philosophy and precision techniques ensure each and every detail is documented and captured. FDI offers a comprehensive selection of digital imaging services and photographic solutions ranging from precision photography and image management to capture stations and photography training.

Founded in 2007 as Forensic Digital Imaging, FDI’s early work was rooted in professional photographer and founder David Knoerlein’s extensive experience in precision forensic photography.   FDI has since expanded its scope to include a variety of photographic solutions including field and technical photography, aerial photography, image management, photography training, capture stations and consulting.

FDI is the trusted resource museums, law enforcement agencies, military, government, private collectors, and colleges and universities turn to for all of their photographic solutions and digital imaging needs:

  • Technical Photography
  • Image Management
  • Aerial Photography
  • Forensic Photography/Forensic Digital Imaging
  • Capture Stations
  • Photography Training

When you contract with FDI, you aren’t hiring just any professional photographer.  Precision imaging takes additional time, training and expertise.

Featured Project

Veterans Curation Program

“Heroes are Preserving History”

FDI Precision Photography

Veterans Curation ProgramFDI designs and manages a state of the art digital imaging system for the Veteran’s Curation Program (VCP). FDI uses an imaging system and management strategy similar to the one used in law enforcement and Iraq to document mass graves investigation. Recognizing the similarities between artifacts in archaeology and evidence in law enforcement, FDI designed a method to capture high quality and technically precise images consistently with affordable equipment and minimal photographic skills. The results are evident by the thousands of museum quality images captured by veterans since 2009. The imaging system itself is a showpiece for the VCP and is highlighted in every piece of media produced about the program.

“FDI provides excellent photographic services. Dave Knoerlein of FDI has supported the VCP program with a variety of services including photography of events, individual and artifacts; training of veterans in digital photography; the development of photography manuals; and photography quality control. FDI’s work is always to the highest standards and they have met all schedule and deliverable requirements.”
