About our Tintype Restorer
As a tintype specialist, Steve can bring back a tintype photo that faded to ash or black color.
Steve found a need for restoring tintype photographs since nobody else was restoring them.
Beginning in 1999, he was first to restore tintypes when others thought antiques was 1920.
Tintypes were made 1836 to 1917. Steve knows the history and can give an age in a range.
He knows who invented each type, where and how patented, their chemicals as produced.
Each tintype is made differently with a 'recipe' of chemicals, as they produce a type of image.
Steve restores, with a meticulous keen eye on every detail, with the original imaging intact.
Like a perfectionist, he clears the damage to give you a high resolution image for genealogy.
Steve thinks like a visual information specialist who can resolve complex imaging problems.
He's a detailed technician, combined with conceptual artistry to make sure the design stays.
