Meet the Team
Matthew Wells
Founder of Ag PHOTOTGRAPHIC and Ag PHOTO LAB, and a total photography enthusiast. Day to day management of the business is Matthew's responsibility together with long term growth strategy. "My aim with Ag Photo Lab, has been to make photographic services, including the processing of film, digital photographic printing, film printing and scanning, as easy as possible and as affordable as possible. But, whilst affordable, to ensure we deliver the very best possible quality, and that this quality is consistent, roll to roll, print to print, order to order. This is critical, only possible by employing the best and most experienced people in the business, operating within strict parameters and using the best quality materials and equipment."
Interests other than photography include restoration and preservation of old buildings, classic cars, classic lawn mowers (yes, really - the 1952 Dennis is a real master piece of over-engineering!)
