Hello everyone and thank you for visiting my page.

I believe in today's fast paced world we are constantly bombarded with the latest, flashiest high resolution photos and videos.

Almost every teenager can now airbrush a photo better than Vogue could 20 years ago.

Younger generations are constantly looking ahead and more than ever, the passing on of traits, history and often even values, between generations, is now disappearing...

I believe that for mankind to evolve, it is key that lessons taught through history are learned;

I believe one must understand the legacy of one's family, be it bad or good;

and with that in mind I created the Photo Alchemist.

It's about looking at old photos in a new light, about feeling empathy for the person in that photo and realizing we are not that different...

It's about realizing the sacrifices made by the ones that came before us...

This is my vision and my passion and I really want to revive history one photo at a time

But I need your help to do it.

At present my only income comes from private commissions, which I also love to do.

However, historical photos are often very elaborate and time consuming to colorize adequately. 

Currently I do those only in my free time. As a result cannot produce as many as I would love and create the impact I feel it's important.

With your support I will be able to create more in my work time
and together we can start to make a difference!


Can you help me?
