Third Man Photo Studio specializes in high-quality photographic film development and analog print processing.

Our darkroom operators hand-load and develop each roll of film using stainless steel tanks and fine-tuned development time for black and white film stocks. Once your film is developed, we can also enlarge your negatives to create traditional silver gelatin prints. The silver gelatin process yields prints which are archival and of the highest possible quality.

See below for our list of current services and prices. For all other inquiries, get in touch via our contact page and we'll get back to you.
