    I recently moved from Orlando to Nashville. Can anyone recommend a reasonable pro photo lab that isnt scary or overpriced for amateurs? :smile:

    I have been to Chromatics and will not say anything negative just yet but I do hope there are more options.

    Not yet, but I'll be able to in a few weeks, as I'll be in Nashville teaching a portrait workshop. Welcome to APUG!

    I've had decent experiences with Dury's, but I find their scanning lackluster.

    Hi. I live just south of Nashville. Dury's and Chromatics are both run by the same people I think. I have used them mostly for E6. In the Columbia area there is Whites camera shop. They can handle C41 as well as black and white. I know they still do optical printing in their darkroom located in the shop for black and white work.
    I hope you enjoy Nashville. If you have any more questions just ask.

    I live in Memphis and will be in Nashville for a long weekend in mid-March. What camera shops are in the area that carry film? I've heard of Dury's through their ads and reps at seminars, but don't know if they still cater to traditional photography. Thanks!
