This post of Dianne Abbott is kind of a follow up from one I did way back in October I think, the link is here if you wish to look. I don’t want to get political on my website but I do want to show any of my work that I am particularly happy with […]

New Zealand manipulation

New Zealand

New Zealand A client from New Zealand sent three photos into me for photo enhancement. They all required differing levels of manipulation but I kept the price low as I always do. One was just a simply background change to add more blue to the sea, another was needing the same but with some cosmetic work […]

Last restore of 2017

Last restore of 2017

My last restore of 2017 This is my last photo restoration for 2017 and what a job it turned out to be. I had to keep walking away from it as the concentration was tiring me out, maybe my old age or possibly the detail. The photo was part of 33 photos sent to me […]

Peter Lenk relief with my interpretation of it.

Peter Lenk

Turning a sculpture into a cartoon. I came across a photo whilst browsing through my interests on Pinterest and I had to learn more about it as it made me laugh, smile uncontrollably and cringe quite a lot. It’s a relief made by sculptor Peter Lenk who has produced more of these and had them […]

Scots guard in need of my talents

Scots guard

This was a great photo to work on but this Scots guard needed some careful work doing to it. A customer who is fairly local to me (Rochdale) wanted this picture restored so he could frame it and be placed with his medals. The Scots guard is actually his father and it’s wonderful to meet […]

Too much restoration, go back and try again

Too much restoration

Is there such a thing a too much restoration? Yes of course there is. Most examples of this can be spotted easily as they look way too false which I have seen many times by another restoration artist who lives not very far from myself. Although he gets a reasonable amount of work he has […]

A little cutie in need of restoring

Little cutie

I guess this little cutie was sat close to the heart of my customer where it suffered damage purely from wear and tare. Quite often we keep our nearest and dearest in our purses or wallets and that constant movement gives motion to that creeping damage that you don’t notice over the years. A bit […]

Ginormous photo restoration

Ginormous photo restoration, nope not an exaggeration. This restoration took me ages to complete but it had to be done. The lovely gentleman had recently lost his wife and wanted this particular photo of her restoring as best as possible. He was at my doorstep so I could hardly refuse him and on top of […]

Baggy trousers smartened and shirt tucked in.

Baggy trousers

Baggy trousers for the bride and perhaps the end of a long day for the groom. It’s amazing how the bride at most weddings can take the whole day with ease and yet their hero of the day flags quickly during the event (Doesn’t say much for us men does it). To be fair the […]

cellulite problem removed but kept natural looking

Cellulite problem

I recently received a request from a professional wedding photographer regarding a cellulite problem. I’ve worked with this company on several occasions so I asked them to send the photos via WeTransfer to which I duly received them. Personally I did not see the cellulite problem as a spoiler for the photograph, but a natural look for […]
