Ian - where do you recommend for B&W develop & print?

I used to use Colab until they went bust.

I have used Metro but they are eye-wateringly expensive.

Where now?

It is mainly wedding stuff (as an am). I tend to shoot colour on my D40 / 28-105 and B&W on my F-601.

Hey North Wind (James ??? )

sorry only just seen this

dont recomend anyone now ...... colab were ok but theres now loads that can do really good prints providing your calibrated properly (even photobox can produce half decent prints)

With Back and white its even more difficult especially when shot on digi ? you need to desaturate (but this can still give colour tones ) or make it grey scale but then its down to the printer.
Shooting on film I could develop my own or I started to use the B& W film that was processed c41 ilford xp2 but i havent picked up a film camera in ........ ooooo ages now.

Must admit havent done a wedding for quite a while now (I WAS CHANGING DIRECTION) but portrait stuff I tend to print myself on archival papers (have an epson A3) other than that a lot of my clients now buy my time and they get the images on disc to do with what they want.


So in short ......... sorry cant help

try ephotozine.com (website), leeds photo visual, calumet, or even jessops for info (they usually know who the local pro's use )

All the best

Ian, http://www.moo.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; is great for fun cards, business cards and that sort of thing. It can be linked to a flickr account for easy processing/picking of images. I used them for my business cards, good prices and delivered within a few days.
