In the mid 1990′s, Seth Dickerman moved to San Francisco and opened Dickerman Prints, an all-optical custom photo lab. At that time, Dickerman Prints made fiber-based black and white prints to 40″x50”, and type C-prints to 30″x45”.
Seth’s enduring love of working with light and photosensitive papers kept him printing in the traditional darkroom until he began experimenting with the digital printing system at Robyn Color, an established San Francisco lab. When Robyn Color closed at the end of 2007, Seth purchased their digital printing equipment and moved Dickerman Prints to our first space in San Francisco’s Mission District.
In August of 2012, we relocated to our current home, a beautiful, light-filled lab space in the South of Market district.v

Black & White Specialists:
Black and white custom processing and printing is both a craft and an art. We at Gamma find pride in the craft and joy in the art. We are a custom lab that is small enough to offer a person to person relationship with the client, yet large enough to handle volume work.
Since 1975, we have been doing this work because it is what we love. While the world of photography goes more and more digital, we have elected to concentrate on the traditional processes of the wet darkroom.
We believe in hand processing of roll film in small tanks and tray processing of sheet film because there are so many wonderful combinations of film and developer that are impossible to achieve with machine processing.
Custom enlarging allows the skill of the printer to mesh with that of the shooter. If it is true, as Ansel Adams said, that the negative is like a musical score and the print like the performance, then we are photographic musicians.
We specialize in high-end drum scanning, digital imaging, commercial & fine art reproduction photography, fine art digital printing, and Web site design services throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. We also offer digital support and retouching services exclusively for photographers, designers, ad agencies, and artists.

At the same location and under the same ownership since 1987 Photoworks SF has met the needs of the San Francisco Bay Area photo community and beyond. We began modestly as a simple neighborhood one hour photo lab. In time our business attracted more high end amateurs and professionals. Soon enough we dropped the "one hour" concept and evolved into a hybrid photo lab. It seemed there was a need for something in between high end expensive and drug store mediocrity. A photo lab where photographers of all levels get their unique needs met.
Over the last 20 plus years Photoworks has survived many changes in a tumultuous photo industry. We have embraced digital technology while maintaining our film roots. We are on site owners who value our retail store as much or more than our substantial internet presence. Stop by and introduce yourself. We like to talk photo, and we plan on doing so for many years to come.
