Good morning- first post to this board. Hoping to get lots of new ideas.

First, though, I need some help. The custom lab I have used for 30 years has just closed. I've looked around here (southern New England), and I don't see anything that will do what I need, though, so it looks like I've got to find someone elsewhere. There are lots of labs out there, but I have a question. Since what I do is definitely on the edgier side- goth, fetish, etc,- I need a lab that will process my film, but that I can trust won't be selling copies to some of the seedy porn sites out there. Does anyone have experience with a lab that will process the edgy stuff but is reliable and trustworthy?

Thanks, All

One way to avoid the problem, is to go digital and then you'll no longer need a lab to process your work. Other than that, just take some of your "edgier" images to any labs you can find and ask them if they'll have any problems with processing this sort of work. As for them selling copies of the images, I think that is a bit unlikely. It would be just too easy to get caught at that sort of thing and fairly easy to prove.

Here's one of my "edgier" images.

My vote also for DCC Photo - Jack Cutter was very approachable, reliable, and helpful when I was using his lab what seems like eons ago.
I haven't visited his site in quite a while, but he used to have some quite nice "shooting lessons" posted, too.
