What is photo retro?
Photo Retro is the trade name for the retail footprint of Pictoriographica LLC. Pictoriographica manufacturers photographic dry plates and dry plate accessories, shipping and selling this unique media to photographers around the world. Founded by Jason Lane in 2017, Pictoriographica has seen rapid growth in sales year-over-year, and recently leased commercial space to expand its operations and support the growing global interest in the process.
The configuration of this retail space is ideally suited for setting up darkrooms, a studio, and a small retail store in the front. This observation was too compelling to ignore, and so the concept of Photo Retro was born. The goal of Photo Retro is to become a hub of traditional analog photography in Southern New Hampshire. A destination for those photographers who want to practice and master the ancient art of capturing images on film.
Two fully-equipped darkrooms each with three enlargers and sink. Print and develop from your negatives up to 4x5.
Schedule to reserve a block of time, bring your own paper and chemicals or buy a pack of paper onsite and use our chemicals, and watch your next beautiful print appear in the developing tray.
