Our Tintype Restoration
As a tintype specialist can bring back a tintype photo that has faded to an ash, or black color.
Steve found a need for restoring tintype photographs since nobody else was restoring them.
In 1999, he was first to restore tintype photos while others regarded photo antiques as 1920.
Tintypes were made, 1836 to 1917. Steve knows their history, giving an approximate year.
He knows who invented each of 3 kinds of tintypes, how and where, and how they evolved.
Each tintype is made differently with a recipe of chemicals producing each kind of tintype.
Steve restores with a meticulous keen eye on every detail, keeping its original subject intact.
Like a perfectionist, he repairs its damage to give a high resolution photo to last more years.
Steve thinks like a visual information specialist who can resolve complex imaging problems.
He's a detailed technician with a conceptual artistic talent, seeing electronics inside artistry.
Before he was a photo artist, he was an electronic engineer, and a software engineer, also.
With your tintype restored, you get your original tintype with acid-free materials to store it in,
plus you get a FREE archival Gold CD with before and after photos of your new tintype photo.
