Large Format B&W Film Development Services 

New Jobo CPP 3 Film ProcessorNew Jobo CPP 3 Film Processor Tim Layton Fine Art offers custom black and white film development services for large format photographers. 

  • We work with you on an individual basis to develop your large format black and white films to meet your specific creative goals.    
  • We standardized on Kodak D-76 and Pyrocat HD developers using our new Jobo CPP-3 processor and Jobo Expert Drums for consistent and repeatable results.  
  • Each development is one-shot, meaning we use fresh chemicals for every development process.  
  • We are not a mass production facility.  We are professional large format photographers helping other large format photographers on an individual basis because we want to do this.  
  • Every sheet of your large format black and white film is developed by Tim Layton and his son, Tim Jr.  No part of the development service is outsourced.  We do everything in house and via the same two people.

We offer our black and white large format film development services because we want to, not because we have to.  We want to form partnerships with other serious black and white fine art photographers and be part of your valued team. 

We see large format black and white photography as a true artisan process that allows for creative interpretation along the entire workflow.  That journey begins by successfully creating the type of negatives that support your overall vision for your images and prints whether you are scanning or printing in the darkroom or both.  

Based on many years of experience, we can provide technical feedback on your negatives to help you consistently create the type of photography that you dream about.  

If you have any questions or would like to arrange a time to discuss your specific needs, contact us and we will be happy to meet with you via the phone.  Be sure to leave your best phone number and a good time to contact you in your message.
