The Best Places to Purchase and Send Film

Isaac bought me a film camera 2 years ago this month and it's been one of the biggest game changers for my business. I read through Jonathan Canlas' FIND book and was all set. I was terrified to send in that very first roll and felt like I had to wait for forever even though it only took 1 hour at Walgreens. In fact, I was so sure that I just accidentally came up with the right exposures because I sent about 7-10 rolls of personal work to Walgreens before I ever sent them to a professional lab. Today I am sharing where you can buy film for your film camera and where you can send it! This isn't an exhaustive list, but it includes the places I trust!

Where can you buy film?



Amazon & Ebay (be careful who you buy from and always do a test roll with personal work)

I use Adorama for everything these days. I will tell you a story soon about why they have my loyalty (and have for years)!

Where can you have your film scanned and processed?

Indie Film Lab

Richard Photo Lab 



Carmencita Film Lab

As of today, I use Richard Photo Lab for all of my work! I feel like they are spot on with the temperature and coloring and I plan to stick with them for now! There are advantages and disadvantages to each of these labs (turnaround time, cost, etc.), but these are the labs I recommend!
