About Gamma Tech


Veteran owned and operated since 1990

My photo career began as a hobby in the mid 60's, building telescopes, learning astro-photography and processing film in a darkened bathroom in our New Hampshire house. I joined the Marine Corps in 1972 and served 6 years, first as a parachute rigger, then as a photographer. Upon leaving the Corps I started work as a custom printer in Orange County, California. Working my way up I was soon managing one of the largest labs on the West coast. This experience gave me a solid foundation in film and processing technology.
My first digital imaging experiences go back to 1982 when the technology was just getting off the ground. During my lab years I was able to design and build optical, mechanical and electronic devices for sale within the photographic lab industry. With this background, and a love for both technology and film, I started Gamma Tech in 1990. The goal was to provide quality restoration services to photo labs here in the Albuquerque area. At that time I did not do my own film recording, and quality was always a serious issue.
In 1992 I started a bulletin board service to facilitate file transfers with our local clients. In 1992 I also purchased my first film recorder in order to maintain higher quality control. Shortly afterward bulletin boards were suddenly replaced by the internet and gammatech.com was born. I have added and updated equipment and services over the years, some of which is documented in our history page. Working with planetariums since 1996 has created a highly refined and accurate level of quality that I'm very proud of. I strive to provide that same level of quality to all of my customers.
My focus is on quality, with speed, price and customer service all a close second. I currently operate using 2 Agfa Alto 16k film recorders shooting film from 35mm through 8x10 inches.
I invite your input. Most of this site is a direct result of customer comments. Please contact me at any time to let me know what I can do better.
My Guarantee: I will reshoot any work that is not acceptable to you, or refund the full amount of your order upon return of all materials to Gamma Tech. I work hard to provide the highest quality product in the industry. I ask only that you be honest and timely with any complaints.
In the case of large jobs where a special price has been agreed to, reshooting work which is a result of our error will be done at no charge, however customer edits will be charged at the discounted rate.
