Kerry is looking to create a collage from a few old family photos. She supplied us with a selection of black and white photos. This one is of her Grandfather. We’ve spent a while spicing up those old images with a splash of colour. Since these are going to be displayed together colours have been selected that might not be true to life but will really stand out when viewed as a collection.
Stay tuned for more posts on this! If you have a project you’d like us to get involved in don’t hesitate to get in touch using the button below.
Paul got in touch looking to brighten up this photo. He supplied a great quality scan which made the process very easy. I made a quick adjustment to the levels, touched up a couple tiny marks and had a play with the sharpening before getting stuck into the hand colouring. I really love the character in this one.

On the 2nd March 1957 Barbara Shorey married Peter Whiteland at the All Saints Church Belvedere in the London Borough of Bexley.
This incredibly well looked after photograph from the day was sent to me by their grandaughter Amy for colourisation. Amy also happened to have a wonderful little card listing the details of colours and flowers featured which made the final result a little more authentic
Thank you for letting me work on your precious family photograph Amy!
A glimpse into the away days of the past. This photo had not weathered well. Multiple creases growing in severity as the years pass by. Slowly bits of important image data that cannot easily be reconstructed start to disappear. It’s important to catch it as soon as you can. This one was in for the full treatment. After an in-depth restoration it has been tastefully coloured with respect to vintage colours and tones.
Do you have a photo in a similar condition you’d like restored or coloured?
Ellen requested a colourisation on this fantastic photo. Whilst involved I repaired a couple of light scratches and balanced the exposure. Taken at Bath Street in Chard, Somerset in about 1949. Ellen’s Mum – Maureen May Mitchell (nee Adam’s) with her eldest 2 brothers and her father in the background. I love the personalities in this one! Thanks again for your business Ellen!

William Daniel or “Bill” joined the Royal Navy and like so many others, their families are now in possession of one of these portraits. This colourisation was made from a scan of a reasonably small photo. So some work was required to sharpen and restore the image before the colour work could start.
Colours were easy to match, examples of uniform can be found all over
google images. Six tones were used on the face. In all a two hour job.
