    Looking for photographic locations and good over-the-counter B&W chemical suppliers in the Toronto area.

    All assistance gratefully received!

    Good an over the counter. Sure you don't want mail order?-)


    www.henrys.com

    maybe

    http://www.vistek.ca/

    Toronto is a big place. You'll find a few Henry's around town. But it's always a risk what's on the shelf.

    As far as suppliers of chemicals I will list them for you, but if you need to get them here for specific purposes , pm me and I will get them for you through my suppliers directly at a savings to you.
    Camera stores- vistek >good selection of film and digital supplies. good rental camera lighting store
    headshots> as above
    Downtown camera> good supply of the above >no rental
    eight elm> smaller store but with more esoteric supplys. ie fibre paper
    henrys> as above , no rental
    carbon Computing> digital printing supplys
    if you require assistants pm me
    if you require lab assistant pm me
    if you require location help I know of a few people that specialize
    Basically Toronto has a good array of suppliers for your visit, maybe be more specific and I can send you in the right direction.

    Very many thanks for the contacts! Basically I'll be shooting some 135 over there and may need a little film that I don't want X-rayed (Delta 3200, HIE, etc.) and some small quantities of chems to process it (DD-X, TMAX dev, Ilfostop, Hypam, Ilftol).

    Everything else (Patterson tank, reels, etc.) goes in my luggage!

    Bob has pretty much covered all the note worthy stores. If he is busy and you need a darkroom there is always Gallery 44. 401 Richmond st. W. #120.

    When are you coming over to visit?
    Henry's (the downtown location) usually has a decent supply. Downtown camera always has tons of paper (RC,FB)and last time i was there had several boxes of Ilford postcard stock.
