did you know we are more than just a magazine ?

Introducing the Silvergrain Classics Family

Silvergrain Classics is the analog powerhouse behind PhotoKlassik International magazine. We are a publisher, photography school, studio, and professional laboratory. If there wasnt´t already a shop with that name, we´d call ourselves Analog Wonderland.

We operate a fully equipped photography laboratory and studio, capable of running nearly all photographic processes and offer a broad range of fully analog and hybrid processes to choose from. 

in short, we offer:

  • regular workshops
  • individual instruction
  • rental studio-space
  • rental lab-space
  • high-end drumscanning on Heidelberg scanners

With our two Heidelberg Primescan drum scanners we can provide high-end scans of slides, negatives, and even prints.

Additionally, we can offer in-house RA-4 printing with our Fujimoto processors and can make direct, optical enlargements from color as well as black and white negatives up to 5×7 inch. 

Our lab also offers various other appliances, like large format Epson and Canon ink jet printers, an Agfa Alto film recorder (exposes digital images onto photographic film at 16.000 dpi resolution) and much more.

The studio is equipped with state of the art lighting equipment by Hensel and accommodates photographic equipment of all kinds, even a 50×60 Ultra Large Format Camera, custom built by Chamonix. 

The Silvergrain Studio Lab is open for rentals.
