Lab & Video

THE DARKROOM was born of a vision of an artist hunched over his trays and chemicals, striving for perfection. The excitement of seeing an image appear in the red glow from white paper is an amazing feeling that never fades - The skill of the artist  merges with the coaxing of technique for the finished piece.

Although the darkroom is largely a historical term now, we use it to convey this spirit of adventure, artistry, and rolling up of sleeves for a magical image - Welcome to Clear Image.  Welcome to the Darkroom.

Rock and Roll and Film

In 2013 a New York producer for “Rock Center with Brian Williams” called with an urgent request for rare 35mm B&W photos of a Berkeley folk group I had taken during the 70s when I was a regular contributor to Rolling Stone. With a tight deadline and owning a less-than-professional-grade negative scanner, I turned to Clear Image. They quickly produced a first-rate set of high-res scans and burned them to a CD in time for me to overnight a package to NY. The photos looked terrific on the broadcast. Kudos to Clear Image. Highest recommendation.
