We also operate the White Rock Beach Gallery year round weather permitting. Some of our retailers have had sales in the thousands at the checkout for a single month with our postcards, greeting cards, and magnets. We have been able to track what people are buying, but through our sales at The White Rock Beach Gallery we get to see who are buying our products. This has been valuable information and product height or placement has taught us to place wildlife products at eye level for the children to tell their parents, “I want that!” Simply greeting people with Hi where are you from? helps repeat sales to people from the same region. Another successful sales pitch is to tell visitors that I have a magnet or postcard with your favorite color(s). With White Rock Beach, BC being a tourist destination for local & world visitors, we have increased sales every year knowing what they will want to buy. Simply watching what draws in potential customers and seeing what they buy is valuable information.

We also offer Photo Restoration services: see .  Other services or items produced are 3 pins, 3 Lucky coins, postcard packs, logos, business cards, stamps, stickers, T shirts, rack cards, conceptual drawings, posters, and more.

Virtual Edge Communications / Ric Wallace has produced a unique set of postcard sets (ONLY PRODUCTS ON THE MARKET) that documents the start of the Storm of the Century that took out the famous White Rock pier, the helicopter rescue and all the destruction that the 100-year storm caused.  Shortly after these were produced they were sold by the City of White Rock to help raise money for the reconstruction of the pier. Having taken over 1300 photos and videos of the storm, the images are sold on photo prints, wall art – metal prints, canvas, acrylic prints, magnets and greeting cards. Because of the success of the Storm of the Century postcard packs, we have assembled many other packs, such as: Sunrise pack, Sunset pack, Pier pack, Crow pack, Tourist pack, Bird pack, Animal pack and many others.



Christmas Gift Idea #37 – Photo Restoration By Ric Wallace – The Photo Doctor

Old, torn and sometimes photos in two or more pieces can be restored to their original state or better. Ric Wallace does a high resolution scan from your original image and electronically uses a computer to do the retouching and corrections. High quality photographic prints can be obtained from the computer file. The computer file can be supplied on CD/ DVD, USB, or downloaded from the internet to ensure exact copies can be made for years to come, with no loss in quality like prints made from negatives which will degrade over time.

UPATE ON THIS VIDEO: The customer went to Walmart with the large digital file and got some posters made for display at places where they were playing. They were looking for T-Shirts with this image and another one I scanned. I referred them to one of my Greeting Card Retailers who prints on T shirts and other clothing. Need T-Shirts, or other clothing with a photo, name logo, etc  - contact Will  @ Ethical Addiction Apparel and mention the The Photo Doctor / AKA Ric Wallace referred you.

Ric Wallace has been restoring photos for years first by using an airbrush and fine tip brushes. With the mainstream use of computers, Ric has disposed of the darkroom equipment and chemicals, and instead uses  computers, digital cameras, high res scanners, and various computer programs, photo printers, mat cutter, etc.

Computers have changed the way things are now done, but the basics or old way things were done gives Ric a Virtual Edge over other people offering Photo Restoration.

Many stores may offer photo restoration as they get someone else to do the work and markup the price. When you hire Ric Wallace you are talking to the organ grinder and not the monkey like at retail stores.


Ric works his magic and has even taken passport photographs, restored them to a better than original state, and produced quality photographic enlargements for wall display. This service is invaluable for genealogy enthusiasts trying to put together family albums.retouch-03

Old, faded, and cracked photographs can be brought back to life with our expert digital restoration techniques.


Consider purchasing a DIGITAL EXACT copy of the FINAL HI-RES photo at 300 DPI (JPG) – for an additional fee. (not included with standard packages)
Digital files maybe kept on our storage devices for a limited time and may be deleted without notice after services are rendered and paid in full. Customers who purchased digital files are recommended to have many copies on disk, USB and/or cloud based storage. Digital computer files do not fade or disappear like old negatives or prints. Making prints from-the high res digital files will allow the highest quality image to be printed. Sharing this file means family or friends can look after getting their own prints with their own money, saving you $$$. Using output services such as Walmart, drug stores or home printers will vary in quality.
PLEASE NOTE: We are NOT allowed to copy photographs that have a copyright stamp or symbol on them, such as school photos, team photos, magazines, newspapers, etc. If you have a photo with a stamp on the back please contact the listed person or company for reprints. If the photographer has passed away or the company is out of business we would have to review the situation. Anyone with an original negative film will be considered the lawful owner of the image. Any prints or digital files are your property to do with as you wish, once paid in full. Any future reprints would have to be ordered by you or have your approval in writing.
We need the photo supplied loose -- not framed or behind glass. Photos larger than 8.5" x 11" will have to copied using a camera on a tripod as opposed to scanning on a high resolution flatbed scanner. These will have a higher cost to digitize the image as it is considered a photography service, not a scanning service.
We reserve the right to refuse to copy obscene, offensive, unlawful or objectionable materials. Please contact us for any concerns you may have.

Not sure how to email a photo? NO PROBLEM – you can call by voice on the phone.
