Rose Restorations

Celebrating 15 years in the SF/Bay Area

Welcome to Rose Restorations: Your Curator of Ancestral Memories

Rose Restorations is a personalized photo restoration service based in San Francisco and Berkeley, California. I'm Jason Rose - I work with a range of photo projects, from simple enhancement to complex photo retouching and restoration, as well as special projects such as photo collage. My expertise is drawn not only from 25+ years working with Adobe Photoshop, but also a background in illustration and oil painting, which lends itself to a subtle and artistic result rather than a "digital" looking one.

  • Basic Photo Fixes ~ Contrast and color correction, remove red eye
  • Removal of flaws (stains, folds, rips, cracks, mold, dust, silvering
  • Photo Retouching ~ Reconstruction of missing areas, or badly damaged (including water damaged) areas
  • Removal of unwanted elements in a photo (objects, as well as people!)
  • Colorization of black and white photos
  • Sepia toning of color photographs
  • Correction of uneven fading
  • Photo collage and Photo Family Trees ~ Collages can include heirlooms that my be scanned such as birth and wedding certificates, archival newspaper notices, fabrics, as well as old and recent pictures.

My goal is to preserve the integrity of your photos, while enhancing the original spirit of the image.

I offer consultations in North Berkeley or downtown San Francisco, by appointment. I'm also available to meet at your location within the SF/Berkeley/Oakland range for an added $15 fee for pick up + delivery. All restorations include your custom restoration saved as a digital file as well as a print(s) on premium photo paper.

"Thank you so much again for the marvelous work restoring the childhood photo of my brother and me ... You are an artist and your customer service is outstanding." C.C., Oakland, 2/6/2012

Personal note:

I've always been fascinated by history, geneology and photography - I'm also aware of the personal meaning that photographs have for people. A restored photo allows people to see departed loved ones again, ourselves at different stages of life, or ancestors we've never met but feel a connection to. Enhanced photos can take on new meaning, greater significance and initiate recalled memories - one may notice new details such as facial expressions, or the background settings in which people lived. One reason I love what I do is that every job is a different challenge and calls for a unique solution. There is a therapeutic aspect to my work in that I am both healing a photo and creating a new possibility for connection with one's past.
 

It is an honor to restore your special photos - I look forward to talking with you! Jason Rose
