About the Photographer / Photo Restoration Artist

Hello and welcome to the site!

I began my career in the newspaper business in 1965 when I joined the staff of The Daily Reflector in Greenville, NC. I worked there for 28 years as the chief photographer and black and white lab manager. During my tenure there I implemented a color lab structure and processed the first color photo to run in the newspaper as offset.

While working at the paper, I formed my own licensed business developing special photographic techniques for copying antique photos using film and the older silver print processes. Meanwhile, I continued my career as a news photojournalist, winning numerous photojournalism awards beginning in 1968 along with Associated Press citations. I continued my newspaper career when my family moved to Greensboro in 1992, Forrest Photography moved to Greensboro as well. While I worked for the Jamestown News and High Point Enterprise for a time, Forrest Photography continued to grow as well, and I now specialize full time in photo restoration.

With the advent of digital photography, I have coupled high-end computer software along with state-of-the-art large format scanning equipment to develop exciting new methods of photo restoration. I added graphics to the business name in 1994.

My wife is my partner, who works with me on some projects and I still create scenic photography in addition to producing graphics for clients. I love to shoot as much as I favorites are the scenes of North Carolina! I've recently been selected for photo assignments from "Our State" & Signature magazines. (See the Archives)

I hope you enjoy the photos & the web site! If you have any questions, please contact me by phone or on our contact page.
