I use the latest digital technology to make photographs that are virtually indistinguishable from traditional darkroom prints. These new prints are also archival. They will not fade, and they have a life of 200 years.

Using Photoshop, I restore each image. I create digital fine-art prints that honor the artist’s vision. An increased tonal range revitalizes each image, revealing new dimensions, contrast, and resonance.Faded values are brought back. Spots, stains, scratches, and missing sections are repaired. The image has new clarity, new depth, new life.

use a magnificent inkjet printer called the Canon Image Prograf Pro-1000, but the unique value I offer

is interpretation.

Textured papers from Canson, Canon, and Hahnemühle provide an elegant presentation for your favorite images and transform them into gallery-quality prints.

I’m able to achieve these results even from poorly printed and yellowed photographs. The digital process can “see” tones and shades that aren’t visible to the human eye, and it can bring them back. Images that have languished for years in inferior prints can in most cases be refreshed, enhanced, and enlarged. The new prints look like custom vintage prints!
