We process all film on a Jobo Rotary Processor with one-shot chemistry, this service has been ongoing for 25 years and today we still work with long-term clients providing excellent quality film. We now only work on larger projects and will make contact sheets and/or high res digitally scanned contact sheets from the film. We are not set up to do small run service, however we are happy to recommend other local labs that can accommodate smaller size projects at a quicker turn around. Please contact us via email for a quote for your unique project!
Digital Prep / Conversion / PS Editing / Neg Generation

Work Flow Considerations We have a small group of artists that have taken one-on-one workshops with Bob. These clients now know how to carry-out each step in preparing their files based on our working methods, and therefore have the ability to send us completely edited files, ready for print (this is specifically referring to preparation needed for multiple layer prints over palladium). These individuals are in our opinion qualified to do this. If you want to be one of these people, please contact us to take a one-on-one workshop with Bob - firstname.lastname@example.org
We will prepare negatives for any working process based on our in-house work flow. When sending files to us, the resulting negative is final. You will have to adjust your printing work flow and/or file preparation to get the results that you are looking for. Negatives can be created for processes such as calotype, gum, palladium, cyanotype, and more. We cannot predict your work-flow or calibration habits. * It is a common internet falacy that the manufacturure is always to blame when something goes wrong. So, if you are using our negatives, (prepared with our work-flow methods) to work in your dim-room/darkroom, you must understand that there is a give and take. We have established with thousands of prints that come from our negatives' work. If you should run into issues during your printing, adjustments to your process may be required. We are open to consultations (for a fee ), however, please remember that we are not in your darkroom with you, and are unable to troubleshoot specific issues.
