    Miller's Color Film Processing

    In a world of shrinking options for film processing, Miller's Lab out of Pittsburg still processes color negative film in 35mm, 120 and 4x5. They also offer printing and scanning from these negatives.

    I have worked with Miller's for years and they are the best in the biz, with excellent customer service. Give them a call.

    I hope I get approved to join the "club".

    Have to sign up in order to view prices? Strange.

    Miller's is a professional lab that caters to portrait and wedding photographers. Protecting their pricing is a service to the pros, as is their requirement that you sign up. As I said, they are top notch and very focused on quality and customer service. Atlanta no longer has any C41 labs so I was delighted to discover that one of my favorite suppliers still handled it.

    Fair enough, but they did let me in with minimum proof. I'm still starting out, so I don't have a big online presence. I'll definitely try them out.

    Protecting their pricing? How? At first I thought to make it more difficult for their competitors but that cannot be, you state there are none in Atlanta. I guess it does not matter anyway. Just wonder about the logic.

    Perhaps by not allowing end-customers to see how much the photographer actually paid for the printing of an image, vs the marked-up price.

    But wouldn't that go out the window with all the other shops that do print their prices? Plus most clients who are that picky about pricing would probably go to Walmart or Walgreens.

    At least in the past, when you deal with many "pros", they'd sell you finished prints at a markup which reflects materials, time, and talent. This doesn't get broken down, you want an 11x14 of your portrait, the price is X. If people knew the lab charges the pro $5 for the print, it's hard to accept that the price the pro quotes may be $200.

    But who really knows why Miller's does it, other than Miller's?

    Many places that cater to professional trades, in a variety of industries, do not make their prices public. And I believe it's to avoid seeing the markup - however justified it may be. Probably an anachronism now when price information is so available online, but it persists.
