I am a Berkeley, CA born and raised photographer and web-designer with a MFA in Photography, Video & Related Media from the School of Visual Arts in NYC. I shoot news and editorial as well as commercial and advertising photography.

Until the end of 2009 I was stationed in Kolkata, India with my wife. We are currently back in the Bay Area.

For the last few years I’ve been teaching photography courses in Kolkata and at the Light & Life Academy, Ooty. The Academy is a one of a kind school in India, with great students, faculty and facilities.

I’ve recently relocated back to Berkeley, CA.

Scanning 120 in Kolkata

I need a good scanning facility for my 120 slides while I’m here in Kolkata, India. I have found one called DGVision but I wouldn’t classify their scanning as professional grade. They have a Nikon Supercoolscan 8000 ES and their scans consistently have horizontal scan lines throughout the image.

From a photo.net post dated October 2004 someone mentioned a place called “Color Magic of Lansdowne” that does drum scanning. I find this hard to believe but Kolkata is surprising sometimes. I also can’t find any other reference to them on the net or from photo places I’ve been to in Kolkata. I would be happy with just plain ol’ not-garbage scanning.

Thanks for your help in advance.
