Old Photo Restoration
Have a box full of old photos that are cracked, faded, torn or water damaged? Want them restored back to their original beauty? Look no further! Charles Photography has over 40 years of experience in old photo restoration for clients in San Angelo and West Texas, bringing back countless precious memories. We work with the general public as well as museums & historical societies. We repair minor or severely damaged pictures, whether faded, stained, torn, missing pieces, bad color, or water damaged.
Ever notice on the news after someone's home has been destroyed, the most precious things they save are the old family photos? We can make digital copies of all your cherished memories and provide them on a disk that can be kept in a safety deposit box or other location.
Your originals stay on our premises at all times. They are digitally copied and all restoration work is done on the digital copy.
Old pictures fade and degrade with time which is why it is important to fix your old and damaged photos before it is too late. Let us restore and enhance your vintage photographs into works of art to be enjoyed and preserved for generations. The photo restoration techniques we utilize allow us to return nearly any photo to a near original state, whether they have faded from age or if they were damaged by fire, light, water, or mold. We can also recreate missing pieces, add backgrounds and colorize black and white photos.
We can even improve photos that are not damaged, but were never that good to begin with, such as photos that are too dark, too light, too far away, grainy or a little out of focus. We can whiten teeth, remove skin blemishes, remove a person from a photo, or even place a new person into the photo. Although we may not make them perfect, we can usually at least double the current quality to make them look better. The sky is really the limit, simply tell us what you'd like and we'll let you know if it can be done. We can also just copy photographs that don’t need restoration.
After the restoration or improvements are done on the digital copy, we can either provide you with a digital copy on a disk or download, or make new prints on Kodak photographic paper. The new prints we make for you will be on archival quality papers guaranteed not to fade, discolor, or mold for 100 years. We offer free estimates, reasonable prices, and quick turnaround.
Not so long ago, headshots were for movie stars, models, and other celebrities. Now however, a headshot is a universal necessity. You need yours ready to go for business marketing, branding, service groups and boards. People associate your face with your business. That’s why it so important that you have a high quality, professional headshot. A cell phone "selfie" just isn’t good enough!
Branding is much more than just a catchy logo or tagline. It’s also an emotional tie that you make with your customers. Nothing relays emotional messages from one person to another like the human face. Your face is your company brand. Business owners use marketing collateral to talk about pertinent information regarding their merchandise and services. Your headshot is a significant part of that marketing collateral.
Years of work with San Angelo and West Texas performers, business professionals, and political candidates have made headshots a specialty at Charles Photography. Decades of study, training, and experience in classical portrait photography provides the knowledge to find the best angle and best lighting for you facial type. Expert retouching is also applied to every headshot.
Our state-of-the-art portrait studio has evolved to create the greatest result with the most comfortable sitting experience possible. You may be able to view your proofs immediately after a studio session. Rush service for the retouching and delivery of the final image is available.
We can also go to your location for multiple staff headshots and/or group pictures.
