TheFINDlab began as an extension of the FIND (Film Is Not Dead) workshop to create as much opportunity for attendees to shoot as much film as possible. In its early days, theFINDlab’s services were only available to attendees of the workshop. As time went on, the demand arose to offer our services to all film shooters.

TheFINDlab offers useful and innovative services to help our clients best discover how shooting film fits into their specific workflow. Film education is the driving force behind all we do. From offering feedback on Basic+ scans, our discounted film prices, custom color consults, and our exclusive partnership with Mastin Labs as a hybrid-editing lab, we are here to promote the utility and versatility of shooting film.

Returning to film a little over two years ago, theFINDlab has been instrumental in my quick success in getting my images to a place that I love. They truly want you to succeed. By being focused on teaching, providing incredible service and accurate turn around times, the learning curve is swift. I am grateful for the never ending patience and service-oriented nature of the staff at theFINDlab… they truly are the best. - Heather

When you are on your film journey, one of the most important pieces to the puzzle is your lab. Building a relationship with them is key for a cohesive brand and workflow. TheFINDlab has been my best decision as a film photographer. I just can’t say enough about their customer service, quality and love for their clients​. - Julie

When I started shooting film, I tried a few different labs, but I always came back to theFINDlab. The communication with the Basic+ option was perfect for me! I had no idea so much work went into scanning until I had a chance to sit down with a technician and review my preferences. I think what makes our relationship so successful is communication. I can always count on theFINDlab to handle my film with care. - Sonia

I started my business from a closet in my living room, where I set up my desk and editing chair of death. When I attended a FIND sponsored workshop, you preached about getting "out of the editing chair of death". After almost 7 years of spending so much time in this chair, I am sitting here in complete awe of what you have given me today. Freedom! Time to completely immerse myself in my family. From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU. - Jackie

The FIND Lab has been such a critical part of our film journey! They’ve been true partners with us and in many ways, mentors. They’ve always been just a call or email away to answer our questions and help us troubleshoot how to become better at our craft. The team at FIND delivers beautiful scans and collectively are a wealth of film knowledge that has put us on the fast-track to success. - Sweetlife Photography  

The FIND Lab has been an integral part of what makes my work, my work for years now. Orders are always on time (and sometimes early) all year round, making the workflow of my business as seamless as possible. Communication is always stellar and I feel supported and loved by a really special small business, thank you FIND Lab! - Brittany

Knowing I have people out there supporting my work who truly have my best interest at heart, makes working with theFINDlab an absolute no-brainer. My work is more consistent and has evolved to what I was striving for. I have no doubt it is because of the team at FIND and their willingness to make me and my business a priority. Service like what they provide doesn't exist hardly anywhere anymore. I am incredibly thankful.
 - Jessica 

FIND Lab is the reason why I shoot film and why my business is thriving. It has been the biggest investment and backbone of my business. I use FIND for everything from buying film (best price globally) to developing, scanning, editing and printing. Hands down; the best-in-class lab out there with exceptional customer service. I trust them. I communicate with them. I really admire the people that work there. - William

I love theFINDlab because of the amazing people that work there and run it. I am a valued customer, regardless if I send in 2 rolls or 50 rolls at a time. I know some of you are thinking “You think having a warm and fuzzy feeling about your lab is important?” My answer is “YES,” because we value each other. I know my art is in good hands. They have shown me countless times how they care about their clients. – Christina

 I started shooting film on a whim and chose The FIND Lab to try developing. I'm so glad I did and I've never looked back on my decision! Their Basic+ scans helped me learn so much. My images have improved immensely with their suggestions and expertise. The success I've felt helped me turn random film shooting into a hobby I love that is helping me document my everyday life.  - Sara

Aside from the edits, your feedback has been so tremendously helpful. I sent my first couple of rolls of film to a different lab, but without feedback, I struggled to learn much from the experience. I value the feedback above all else and am so excited to continue growing through using your services. The Find Lab is officially MY lab of choice. – Justine 

I started using basic+ scans for my first rolls of film. TheFINDlab gave me tons of feedback to help me shoot in better light & expose properly. As my knowledge of film grew, so did my preference of how my film looked. I reached out to theFINDlab to work with them to achieve my ideal colors and look for my film. They always help me achieve the gorgeous colors that I love through scanning. I feel appreciated as a human and photographer. - Erin

We couldn’t do what we do without the FIND Lab! They are always there to answer any questions we may have and super quick on returning emails and phone calls. We believe that the relationship you have with your film lab is just as important as the emphasis you put on your business or marketing plan. A solid relationship with your lab will help create the images you’ve dreamed of and the feedback the FIND Lab gives is top notch. - Rachel & Noah

TheFINDlab is consistent, my expectations have always been met or exceeded and I love their feedback. I really wanted to work with a lab that was quick to action, letting me know when my film had arrived, invoicing, informing me of a due date (and having them be on time), and giving me a call when they had questions about my order. TheFINDlab has just been such a huge part of my journey and business as a film wedding and family photographer. - Paige
