Paul, a Peterborough based photographer, produces traditional, art photography and photo restorations. His  speciality is Art Photography and photo restoration. He has become known for his Edwardian actress restorations. A number of restorations for private clients have  been commissioned and completed to their delight . The restoration process can be either a straight forward tidy up of small marks or corrections. For instance from, say sepia toning back to black and white or vice versa. A tidy up or tinting, removing backgrounds, people, and adding new images of people or new backgrounds.

Art photography is his main interest at the moment. As he completes each image, his enthusiasm for probing further in this direction increases. Many people may think that photography is a poor relation to ‘proper’ art but Paul states, ‘many hours over several weeks’ can be spent setting up a photo, and there can be no certainty of a successful outcome, there are many failures, but Paul says there is a great feeling of satisfaction when an idea come to fruition..

Paul says that working with glass is especially difficult. However much it is cleaned before the image is taken it seems to attract any passing  dust. Working with glass and backgrounds with straight lines can also be a challenge. You will see the finished article in his exhibition but what you won’t see are the hours  spent getting everything as perfect as  possible. Paul’s restoration experience comes in very useful during the post processing of the image.

During the PAOS period Paul will be happy to assess photographs for restoration, but at this years venue will not be able to do demonstrations, however there will be before and after restoration photographs available to view. Commissions accepted for photo restorations.
