We are primarily a print shop and film lab, but here are some local businesses we recommend for related services that we do not currently offer:
Bob Zint – Photo Equipment Repair
Bob Zint is a local legend with a wealth of knowledge & skills when it comes to film cameras. We keep his business card & contact info at the shop, so if you would like his direct email or phone number, give us a call at our shop & we will happily give it to you (we just don’t want to list it on our website to prevent random spam calls).
Vicky @ APT Camera
Vicky runs Albuquerque Photo-Technologies (APT), and does repairs on both film and digital cameras. A great place to take your digital camera for a sensor cleaning. She also sells cameras & equipment. Website: http://www.ap-t.com/
Physical Photo / Document / Art Restoration
Here at Picture Perfect we restore images digitally and make reproductions, we do not alter your original images in any way. For restorations to originals, we recommend:
Neri Zagal Fine Art Restoration
Video Tape Transfers
Looking to convert your VHS, VHS-C, 8mm Video Casette and MiniDV tapes? We no longer offer this service in house, but can send it out to a sister lab for you. For a quicker turnaround, we recommend you take your tapes to Dubland here in Albuquerque.
Movie Film Development
There is no local lab that provides this service here in New Mexico. We’ve used Pro8mm in Cali, but you can find a comprehenive & current list of labs that still develop movie film on Kodak’s website here.

Camera & Darkroom

Matting & Framing
Great for buying print packaging materials and custom mats in bulk, they also do custom framing, sell blank photo cards, and more. Website: https://www.matboardplus.com/
Frame City (Nob Hill)
810 Central Ave SE, Albuquerque, NM 87108
We no longer offer metal prints (as of February 2022). We now only offer metallic paper prints. We recommend you check out Carr Imaging for all your metal print needs.
