opened our lab in 1974, when we saw a need for a professional
Black and White photo lab in the Seattle area. We wanted to do
something we were good at, that we liked to do, and that was
needed: high quality black and white. Develop the film, print the
negatives. On fiber, or resin coated paper. Tone it if you like.
From the first location, our business grew steadily, and in 1987
we opened a second shop. In 1994 we began offering scanning,
retouching, and color digital prints. In 2000, we again expanded
our services to include color film processing and printing. In
2005 we upgraded our scanning and digital printing services,
offering better whole roll scans and Giclée prints.
We still develop our true black and white film by hand, and do
traditional B&W printing on enlargers by hand, using classic
methods and materials. We believe traditional black and white
photography is here to stay, though it will occupy a smaller
niche. The exquisite quality if film and an optical fiber print is
something special, and is not duplicated by the latest digital
methods. Film is still a vaible option.
We will continue to offer the finest in traditional black & white
processing and quality color prints. We continue to provide high
quality scanning and unsurpassed restorations of treasured old
photographs. Digital capture and editing of images has its
advantages, and we have now embraced the best digital printing
Over the past 39 years, our success has been confirmed by the
praise and recommendations of many photographers, both
professional and amateur. We can thank our staff, present and
past, who have helped us with good work and suggestions along the
way. It is only with the concerted honest work of many people that
a business like ours can keep going for over 30 years. A special
thanks to our valued customers, some of whom have been with us
from the beginning. Thanks for your support!
