Mourning Metallicat

Metallicat was our lovely lab cat. Unfortunately, he escaped in early 2021 and is, longer with us.

We'd like to adopt a new cat, an indoor-only cat of any age except kitten. Know of a cat needing adoption? Let us know.


About Us

Photolab, Berkeley, California

We are Photolab

With Passion For Real, Good Photography

We are a team of 10 photographers (and a cat) who love photography indiscrimanently. That is, we love photography in all its forms. Love film, oh yeah! And digital of course. We love pinhole photography, photograms, 120 film, and disposable plastic cameras. We adore black & white silver gelatin printing, cyanotypes, double exposures, and nitrogen burst agitation. We delight equally in 4x5 sheet film and a brand new mirrorless digital camera.

We love the tools of our trade: Adobe Photoshop and Wacom tablets and Noritsu printers just like we feel passionate about Xtol and Dektol and D76.

Photolab is woman owned and operated; we are 5 women and 5 men and a Cat who is the boss of us all.
When we sat down and added up the years, we have over 200 years combined experience in this adventure we call photography.
We hope you will join the adventure with us!
