Photoworks processes 35mm, 120, & 220 color, black & white, cross process, & E6 films. We offer archival prints from 35mm and 120 negatives, as well as prints from slides. We are one of the few labs left that still prints black and white film on traditional black and white paper with black and white chemicals.

At the same location and under the same ownership since 1987 Photoworks SF has met the needs of the San Francisco Bay Area photo community and beyond. We began modestly as a simple neighborhood one hour photo lab. In time our business attracted more high end amateurs and professionals. Soon enough we dropped the “one hour” concept and evolved into a hybrid photo lab. It seemed there was a need for something in between high end expensive and drug store mediocrity. A photo lab where photographers of all levels get their unique needs met.

Over the last 20+ years Photoworks has survived many changes in a tumultuous photo industry. We have embraced digital technology while maintaining our film roots. We are on site owners who value our retail store as much or more than our substantial internet presence. Stop by and introduce yourself. We like to talk photo, and we plan on doing so for many years to come.

    Can't wait to visit. Next time I'm in SF, I'm definitely stopping in.

    This lab is amazing. While I live in the bay area, it is more convenient for me to mail them my undeveloped film. The turn-around is amazingly fast. I usually spend the extra money on the high res scans for the 35mm film, which comes out to 3000x2000 TIFF scans @ 24bit. It is SO worth it if you want to do anything other than thumbnails online. The folks that work in the store are incredibly nice and will do everything they can to answer your questions and get you shooting. Last time I was there I was able to get some ISO 50 Ektachrome Tungsten and FujiChrome T64 for $5 a roll for delicious expired stock. You never know what they'll have there, so stop in often.
