Beautiful restorations since 2012

We’re an independent imaging company headquartered in Canberra. We’ve teamed up with framing shops in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Gosford, Newcastle and Adelaide so we can extend our services to those places. See our locations page for details.

Our specialist imaging services include:

  • Digital photo restoration
  • Digital document restoration and duplication
  • Fine art and giclée photo prints

We’ve worked with war veterans, memorabilia collectors, hurricane survivors, genealogists and thoughtful gift-givers, all of whom have been delighted with the results.

As of April 2018 we’re also trading as Lucent Imaging, extending our services to fine art printing for artists and photographers. See www.lucentimaging.com.au for more about our new venture.

James Walters completed a Bachelor of Creative Arts / BA Comms at Wollongong Uni and spent the next decade or so as a graphic designer in various public organisations and in the ‘churn and burn’ world of advertising. In 2009 he found an old box of photos and slides from his father’s childhood in the Ninety Mile Desert in South Australia, and set about scanning, restoring and printing the best ones. That was the start of Vivid Recollection. Today the company has a presence in seven Australian cities and serves customers around the country – and occasionally overseas.
