Where it all began


Amazing Colorizing - Riding The Perfect Wave

Amazing Colorizing came to life in the beautiful beach community of Ventura, California - a world-famous surfing spot - home to The Rincon, Surfers Knoll, Surfers Point and Mondo's. Our piece of the Pacific Coastline would inspire ANY surfer or graphic artist.


It all began in December 2001 as an experiment to see how lifelike Photo Colorizing could become. At the time, photo colorizing was just a primitive novelty. That was about to change.


David spent hours and hours over several years putting his photo software through the paces - pushing the bar on how real colorized images could look.


In 2010 we gained a #1 Ranking on Google - and got “discovered”. In no time, artists around the world found what we were doing, copied us, and the field of Historic Photo Colorizing “exploded”.


We're still here at our studio on Redwood Avenue in Ventura, California -  and we still get a thrill out of making historical photos come to life.

Sheryl Lynn Chrenko: Head Honcho & Sole Proprietor, Accounts Payable & Receivable, Colorization Review.


Sheryl has a degree in Fashion Merchandizing, and spent many years with The Broadway and Macy’s. She is gifted with an eye for style – and “Style” is what sets Amazing Colorizing apart from the pack.


While realism is key in our work - you can usually spot our unique sense of style. Sheryl helps define the balance, She’s also the final set of eyes reviewing all colorizing work. But, her favorite role is that of Accounts Receivable . . . counting the money!

David Chrenko: David is our Colorizing Artist and Website Designer.

His backstory includes: Record Session singer & bass guitar player at

Warner Brothers Studios, and leader of the popular Los Angeles

"New Wave" recording band, The Bings (”Please Please Please" on Babymoon Records). Their new Vinyl LP and Digital Download of high-energy 1980s studio recordings is scheduled for release in early 2022.


David was also a graphic designer and Rock 'n' Roll historian at legendary Bomp! Magazine and Bomp! Records label in Hollywood.

He later worked in logistics on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner program in Everett, Washington. Talk about divergent interests!


David pioneered the Historic Photo Colorizing field in 2001. The genre that is so popular today, kicked off with David’s colorizing experiments over 20 years ago - right here at Amazing Colorizing.com. At the time,

we didn't realize how significant David's work was. We do now!
