Quality. Service. Innovation.

Bay Photo was founded in 1976 with the purpose of providing photographers with the finest possible services. We have kept that promise by changing and adapting with the photo industry. When digital technology began to gain momentum among professional photographers, Bay Photo was the first lab to implement the ROES online ordering system—now a standard for pro labs. Bay ROES continues to offer one of the most comprehensive selections of quality photo products available anywhere.

In 2009, Bay created ThinWraps™: a contemporary, frameless new way to mount and display images in style.

Also in 2009, Bay Photo introduced MetalPrints: an exciting new art medium for printing photographs by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets. Prints up to 4’x8’ along with custom sizes and shapes were introduced to photographers.

Bay Photo’s friendly, knowledgeable staff are experts in photography. From our large selection of products and marketing tools, to our one-on-one support, we are dedicated to helping professional photographers succeed in their business.
