PhotoShack

Location: 4632 S Maryland Pkwy #4, Las Vegas, NV 89119

The only dedicated photo lab in Vegas, PhotoShack is our top choice of where to develop your film. Opened in 1982 by artists, they have decades of experience turning your film into fine works of art. 

Every type of film can be processed at PhotoShack. 35mm, medium and large format, whether C-41 color, black and white, or E-6 slide film. If you find yourself with any odd film formats, you can likely bring them as well – 110, 126/127, and APS are also developed. 

It’s worth noting that PhotoShack is the only place in town that will take large format and/or E-6 slide film.

Aside from film processing, you can expect to find standard photo lab offerings: printing, scanning, retouching, and photo restoration.
