Photo Restoration: A Meaningful Gift this Holiday

Gift-giving season is upon us - and this year we're not presenting our loved ones with another scarf or dust-gathering trinket. Instead, cherished old photos can be a great gift when restored to their original beauty. Using our high-quality restoration software and technique, we can re-construct lost sections from tears or scratches and colorize faded tones to bring your damaged photos back to life.

We keep photos because they are meaningful to us; to remind us of a beloved time or show us a past era we weren't around for. This holiday, a revitalized digital copy or print of your treasured image can be a new way to connect with family past and present.

Photos from above have an unrivaled ethereal quality and can therefore provide an aesthetic focal point to your company imagery in print and web publications.

Aerials for Alternative Energy

Movement through Perspective

Architects pay close attention to the ways in which patrons are guided through a space by means of physical components and visual signifiers. Similarly, photographers must align elements within a frame to guide the eye through an area or facade. These images of PS96 Addition in the Bronx by MDSzerbaty + Associates are a few of many examples in our collection.

Passport Photography: Get it Right the First Time

Canadian and other foreign passports, visas, and immigration application photos demand strict adherence to government-regulated specifications. Establishments that take U.S. passport photos are often unable to meet other countries' individual requirements - including balanced lighting, frame ratio, head size, and specified background. At Jon Reis Photography, we guarantee a successful portrait based on your particular needs.
