Colourising

Many people have photo albums full of black and white pictures of friends and family that really don't do justice to the stories that they have to tell. ​ Up until the early 1950s, colour film was a luxury and was not available or affordable to most people, meaning that the majority of photos taken over forty years ago are in black and white or sepia.

 

At PhotograFix I can turn your treasured sepia and monochrome photographs into beautiful, colourful works of art through digital colourising, ideal as presents for friends and family, or just as a record to keep on display for future generations.

 

I always try my best to get specific details right, based on your requests, but if you don't know exact colours don't worry, I will always use my best judgement and all photographs are fully researched for historical accuracy where possible.

 

I have colourised photos for museums, publishers and exhibitions worldwide, and for more examples of my public work, please see my Portfolio page.
