Photography Restoration is a specialty at Ray Johnston Photography and Ray, a true artist, is an expert in restoring those cherished images. We all have many old photos laying around the house or within boxes in storage. Some of the photos have faded, damaged by the sun, moisture or physically torn or creased. Due to oxidation, the original prints tend to fall apart over time. Many times our studio barely catches an old print in time for restoration and notice many little pits and thousands of little holes which grow over time, slowly disintegrating the photo.
In addition to the restoration, we will make an archival print, using water resistant inks, and is sprayed with a UV protective coating. Furthermore, we seal the back of the print my mounting it to art board. A TRULY ARCHIVAL print is designed to last for many years to come, being able to share our family history with loved ones now and into the future.
Here is an example of an image before and after Photography Restoration by Ray Johnston. Have Ray Johnston Photography restore an image before December 1, 2014 and receive 20% off the restoration and archival printing.
