The SilvergrainStudioLab is a professionally equipped photo studio and laboratory in beautiful and historical Bad Nauheim, Germany.  Our location is easily accessible from the Frankfurt airport, just a 30-minute drive, and is a two-minute walk from the Bad Nauheim train station.

The SilvergrainStudio is equipped with state-of-the-art lighting equipment by Hensel and accommodates photographic equipment of all kinds. There is even a 50×60 Ultra Large Format Camera, custom-built by Chamonix, onsite. Our team is also around to offer individual instruction if you need a helping hand.

If you are done shooting and can’t wait to see the results, jump directly into our SilvergrainLab to develop your film.  We offer facilities for hand-development, and also machines for E6, C41, and RA4 – all the standard photographic processes! Still not tired? Keep on going with printing or scanning onsite. We work with professional enlargers by Leitz or Durst, and our Heiland split grade controller makes it easy to get a great print quickly. With the two Heidelberg Primescan drum scanners we also provide high-end scans of slides, negatives, and even prints.

Additionally, we offer in-house dry-to-dry RA-4 printing with Fujimoto and Thermophot processors.  So, we are able to make direct, optical enlargements from color, as well as black and white negatives up to 5×7 inch. 

Our lab also offers various other equipment, like large format Epson and Canon ink jet printers. A rare specialty is our Agfa Alto film recorder, which can expose digital images onto photographic film at 16K resolution!

The SilvergrainStudioLab is also open for rentals.
