Photo S.O.S was launched in January 2010.

We are a team of highly-skilled professional photo specialists who understand the importance of rescuing old photographs from potential loss or damage. We ensure that future generations will be able to see the people who have made their family what it is today. Using state-of-the-art technology and software, we can scan your entire photo collection bringing them back into your lives rather than gathering dust up in the loft.​

As of April 2017 we have expanded our services to include digital conversions of cine film and VHS video.
Photo S.O.S is a limited company based in Epping, Essex. We became aware of the demand for such a service after scanning all our own family photos and being asked to do more and more by other friends and family.  After realising how popular this was, we decided to launch Photo S.O.S nationally.

Our address is:



Kilmichael Glassary,

Lochgilphead, PA31 8QE

Many of the photos we have received for scanning are rather old, and a large number of those were in need of restoration or repair. As a result, we have since added photo restoration and repair to Photo S.O.S; you can upload or send old and damaged photos and have them repaired at prices that you will not find anywhere else.

We were a part of the “Who do you think you are?” live exhibition. We had a great time and restored many hundreds of old photos, with many dating back to the 1800's.
