Rock Star Jack White Launches Photo Lab and Studio


Rock star Jack White, best known as the singer and guitarist of The White Stripes, has launched a new photo lab and studio in Nashville, Tennessee. Called Third Man Photo Studio, the lab is now accepting film from photographers worldwide.

White’s music label Third Man Records has physical retail locations in Nashville and Detroit. While the latter has its own vinyl pressing plant, the Nashville location has now gotten its own photo studio.

The lab’s photo chemists hand-process C-41 color negative, black-and-white, and E-6 slide films. They also use traditional photo enlargement techniques to create one-of-a-kind archival prints.

What’s more, the lab is also offering the conversion of digital photos into physical negatives that can be used in enlargers to make fine art prints.

Processing a 35mm, 110, 120, or 220 roll of film in C-41, B&W, E6, and Cross Processing costs $7, $10, $13, and $10, respectively. A full price list for all the services offered can be found on the lab’s website.

Here’s a short 1-minute video introducing the new lab:

The famous Blue Room music space in the facility will also be available for renting as a photo studio. The space — which is the only venue in the world that does direct-to-acetate music recording — is a fully-equipped photo studio that includes a cyclorama wall.

If you’re interested in booking the space, you can contact the new business directly via email. You can also follow along with the studio’s “dark arts” on Instagram.
