We can restore your treasured old photos

Do you have treasured old photos in need of repair or restoration? Our memories captured in photos are often priceless. Unfortunately many old photos fade much faster than those memories due to silvering, tearing, cracking, moisture and other damage. But those photos need not be lost for all time. We can repair them digitally and reprint them using archival inks and papers. 

At Canterbury Tales Photography we use state of the art scanners and cameras to digitally reproduce the image and then retouch, enhance, or rebuild it. This leaves the original untouched. We have extensive photographic knowledge, essential for accurate photo restoration. This leaves the original untouched.

Before After


This photo of a family group was rephotographed from an old 35mm contact print. The image below (left) was all that remained of a larger contact sheet and was found amongst belongings when the client’s aunt passed away.

There were lot of small marks to retouch which are very difficult to see when an original image is so small. Fascinatingly, what was also revealed in the enlargement was a figure standing at the window (top right) which was impossible to see on the original image.
