About Us

Negative Lab is a photo lab in Los Angeles offering film processing, scanning, and archival printing for professional photographers and discerning enthusiasts. We believe that #filmphotography is much more than a hashtag — it is photography in its truest form, and it's not going away any time soon!

Everything we do is for photographers by photographers, giving our clients unrivaled consistency in their scans. At Negative, you don't need to be a celebrity photographer to receive the attention and care that we believe all of our clients deserve. We’re always happy to answer questions, help demystify the film shooting process, and provide feedback with every order. Negative wants to empower you to shoot more film! 

We specialize in scanning and work on the coveted Fuji Frontier SP3000 — regarded by many as the Holy Grail of film scanners. All C-41 processing is handled by our trusted friends, the Darkroom Lab in Chatsworth in LA's San Fernando Valley. Partnering with a local business enables us to keep turnaround times as fast as possible and help another film lab stay busy! B&W is processed on location at Negative.
