From single treasured photographs on paper, glass or metal to whole collections I will be pleased to assist in restoring

Following studies in Photography in New York and, on my return to the UK, Northampton Nene College, I sought to specialise in the Conservation and Restoration of old photographs and continued my training both independently through specialised tutors and Camberwell College of Arts.

Established in 1992 I have been honoured to work for such institutions as Woburn Abbey, Woburn Golf Club, the London Rowing Club, the Company of Watermen and Lightermen and Welbeck Abbey but I also work for many families and individuals throughout the UK who seek to preserve their photographs for the future and build their family archives.

I specialise in Conservation and Restoration using traditional methods and producing     silver halide photographs in the darkroom. I look forward to working with you.
