Press Release Book Launch

Pictorial Planet


New Shop!

For your complete developer system needs.

Some of the best staining and tanning developers formulated plus new Alkali-Fix, and new Alkali-Stop.

Some film photographers don't want to make their own developers, fix, or stop and would rather buy pre-made solutions.

I've been supporting the film community for many years, explaining how to make and use developers, stops, and fixes, and I'm very happy indeed that many do. However, I got to thinking, months ago, about expanding my support to those who don't want to make their own solutions so in summer 2022 I found and made contact with Peter Hogan to ask if I could make and provide his range of the Thornton and Hogan staining formulas, developers I know are of commercial quality. These had been lost, for many years from the UK and European markets being only available in the states from the Photographer's Formulary.

I have personally used these commercial developers and can recommend them. In fact, Dixactol Ultra used to be my go to developer before Thornton died in 2003 and for a short time after while it was for sale by Hogan.

So, today on September 16th, 2022 I am launching a shop to sell these particular formulas to those who have used them before and want to use them again, or to those who just don't want to make their own.

I send these developers all over the world.
If you can't order for your country please contact me and I'll work out the price for courier postage for you.
