lab services

The Work In Process lab is built around quality, craftsmanship and knowledge. Each order is handled with great care and respect from the time it is placed, until the order is delivered. Every photographer captures their moments differently, whether it be preserving memories or creating photographic masterpieces; Work In Process gives them all the white glove treatment.

Visit the lab during opening hours to place a processing order or use the 24hr dropbox located on the front of the store. The dropbox is checked multiple times daily and is stocked with our job bags. If you are interstate or out of reach please download our order form and accompany it with your films for processing.
