About

Let’s develop a relationship! With over 45 years of experience as Los Angeles’ quality-obsessed film lab, Richard knows the importance of the film negative to every photographer—so, Richard sweats the details of each and every frame (just like you do).

We’re more interested in doing things the right way than chasing fat margins. Dedication to our craft and a keen eye for precision are what fuels our premium film processing & scanning, We work with you to personalize our services to your need, consistently deliver high-quality products, and grow your brand.

Our Team

Sir Richard Commander-In-Chief

Richard grew up in Pittsburgh, PA. His dad built race cars. His mom was a test pilot. From these humble beginnings, Richard learned the value of making things awesome. Richard fell in love with a girl and followed her to Hollywood. She introduced him to photography. Richard loved to develop her pictures. His love was infectious—and people came from all over to work with Richard. Once, the King of Astoria came to have Richard develop pictures of his pet cockatoo Edward. Upon receiving the developed pictures, the King dubbed Richard—Sir Richard. And so it stands today.

Richard is the first man here. He’s the last one to leave. If there’s a problem, he has an answer. If there’s an answer, he has a better one. Richard makes quality photography with love, and best of all, he’s here to help you.
