Bringing the Past Back To Life, via the colourisation of Black and White photos, authentic, natural, realistic.

Recomposing photos, removing backgrounds  or placing figures into other scenes.

No matter how damaged or faded your old photos are never throw them out before you speak to us. Let us review whether we can bring them back to life.

Remember once they are gone, they are gone

There are billions of old photograph’s right across the world taken between 1850 and 1970. Their subjects entombed in a grey-scale prison.

My mission is to restore and release as many as I can back to the way they lived their lives. In colour.

What others are saying

Past Colours offers a unique opportunity to clients to transform the past in to a vibrant story of life. Colour allows a re-imagining of what was once a moment or moments captured in time. Past Colours is not just a colourisation service though - it also brings restoration, transformation and illumination to old photos and motion pictures. In my experience, I have been delighted with the products and even more delighted by the joy this work brings to recipients and viewers. Gladiators who once performed in theatres only able to be preserved at the time in black and white, have been able to re live their moments of glory and honour in colour just as they remember them through their own eyes at the time. And that is a special kind of joy. I thoroughly recommend Past Colours and not just their final products, but the way they take their clients on a journey of discovery and possibility that ensures the final outcomes are as special as they always are.

I asked Peter to restore and recolour and old photo for a dear friend. I supplied him with a very old black and white photo on a USB and I received back the most magnificent recoloured, restored photo, enlarged and immaculately presented to me. I am unable to express the gratitude I felt as the photo was intended as a parting gift after many years of employment. Peter was so helpful and courteous from the very start, he explained everything in great detail to me and gave me several options for the photo I wanted. I expected nothing more than a recoloured version of the black and white photo I gave him, but instead I received back the most beautiful A3 photograph that will be truly treasured by the person I am giving it to. They only have the one old black and white version with its flaws and now I can give them something quite exceptional as a result of Peter's skill and care. I honestly cannot recommend Peter highly enough if you want a photo restored or recoloured or anything similar that might hold precious memories. From the moment Peter first answered my enquiry to handing me the new photo every care and consideration was given to what I wanted and hoped for. If I could give Peter and his Past Colours 10 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️, I would.

Positive, professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value Peter from Past Colours took an old black and white photograph I had of my grandfather in a band he was a part of in the early 1900's, and added color. He outdid himself by researching the style and type of a drum kit and used colors true to its time period making it much more accurate than simply guessing what it might have looked like. I can't recommend Past Colours highly enough.

Peter is a magician: there is nothing he can't do when it comes to restoring or colourising old photographs. And that is just a small part of his skill set.
