Sustainable prices.

Prices listed below are guidelines. It is only after viewing/discussion about your images that an accurate price can be given.
Photo restoration prices are not based on the size of the original, but rather the damage and the restoration level you require. Remember that if the original is of poor photographic quality or out of focus, only minor sharpening can be achieved and limited results will occur. Talk to us and email an example and we can offer advice.

Here’s what you can achieve.

The minimum price for a single image is $150.
That includes a personal meeting near me in Watson ACT.
Discounts can be made for multiple image restoration.


For every 10 images restored — pay only for the price of 5.

Basic restore.

Retouching $40–$55 each
This improves the general appearance of a photograph. The image is considerably improved with obvious scratches, spots and creases in non-essential areas repaired. Brightness and contrast and minor colour adjustments are made.

Moderate Restore.

Restoration $75–$95
This is a more in-depth restoration where some reconstruction and more detailed work is carried out. Removal of major tears, scratches, cracks, and slight crazing.  Replacement of partial faces and bodies. Tonal adjustment and replacement of missing areas in non essential areas such as the background or foreground.  Fading (minor) and colour restored.

Basic Plus restore.

Restoration $55–$75 each

A fuller restoration where the damage is due to wear and tear and does not greatly compromise the important areas of the photo.  Removal of medium spots and blemishes in non-essential areas and some minor reconstruction if required.

Major Restore.

Restoration $120–$170 each
Significantly damaged photographs, replacement of missing areas or reconstruction.  Age damage and discoloured photos.  Badly faded, photo in pieces or badly torn.  Reconstruction due to bad mildew or mould infection.  Old photographs, reconstruction of buildings, clothing and objects requiring research. Photos from damaged negatives.

I have had the pleasure of working with Chris from mybigbrag on the Canberra Rotary World Peace Bell website. Chris designed and built the site.
He also shot and edited all the videos on the site. Photos used were modified and artistically altered to gain the maximum exposure for each photo.
One great creative idea was his combining of the photo of Nara Park with an overlay of a ghostly “fan” design which was the inspiration for Lauren Kasparek in the architectural design.
