Our studio frequently receives family photography restoration requests and our beloved family pets are not the exception.  At Ray Johnston Photography we will restore the original print to bring back the true color and memories of your cherished pet.

Many images captured years ago on film have faded or due to film’s limitations, are not the true colors of your pets.  The American Mastiff photograph below was brought to our studio for restoration.  The family pointed out that the photo of the mastiff was captured on film over fifteen years ago, just a couple months before the dog died of cancer.  They also told us that the coloring of the Mastiff print was not correct and that the true coloring of the Mastiff was an apricot, and not the fawn color the print represented.  We were able to match the true apricot color from the faded fawn colored original print.  In addition, we darkened the bright, competitive background to highlight the beautiful Apricot American Mastiff.  Finally, an archival print was made and now hangs proudly in their home.


International Passport or Visa Photography can be very different from country to country – different background colors, facial expressions, print sizing, lighting, face size, black and white or inappropriate shine on the skin or shadows in the image – Ray Johnston Photography Studio can help you with any passport photo requirement.

The United States passport photo will NOT substitute as a passport photo in most countries.  Canadian, Australian, New Zealand, German, British, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, British or Irish, just to name a few, have different passport photo with the correct biometric requirements.  Many customers come to our studio after their passport photo has been rejected, many times due to a United States Passport submission or a smile when a country requires a neutral facial expression.  Countries like Canada require the photography studio to endorse and date the back of one print.  Ray Johnston Photography offers a RUSH passport service by appointment.  All appointments take an hour and prints or digital images are delivered with a photo approval guarantee to be accepted by the country of application.  Save yourself time and frustration.  Hire a professional photographer with international passport experience and get it RIGHT the first time.

Notice the samples below.  The square United States passport photo is one of the few countries which allow a smile
