About Bradley

Bradley Balsters is a photographer in the Midwest specializing in editorial-style work for brands and stills for video productions.

Why do you shoot film?

“I don’t like to let my medium define me as a photographer, but working with 35mm has become my medium of choice simply because it works the best with my creative process and style. Shortly after I started taking pictures five years ago, I discovered that I loved the look of film and would try to replicate the look and feel of film in my digital photos. After a while of trying to fake film, I decided I would jump in and start shooting the real thing and I haven’t looked back since.”

How do I drop-off my film?

1. At the front entrance, buzz in to be let inside.

2. The Gelatin drop-off box is directly across from the front desk. Place your order via the QR code on the box. Select ‘Ship Negatives’ to get negatives (and prints, if you ordered them) returned.

3. Take an envelope (or your own ziploc) from the front desk, bag up your film, and write your order number. Your film will head to Gelatin Labs!
