The Future of Film™ What if everyone could have access to the simple beauty of film?
That’s the question we set out to answer almost a decade ago.
And after rigorous testing and endless tinkering with our trusty film scanner, Henri, the first Mastin Labs presets came to life.
We’ve continued innovating since then, but when it comes to creating the most authentic film emulation presets on the market, we’re not trying to do anything new.
We’re working to preserve something that’s already perfect.
We did the work so you don’t have to.
We know you’ve been burned by bad tools before. That’s why we don’t chase trends or churn out presets you’ll have to spend hours tweaking.
Every tool we create is meticulously designed to be subtle, classic, clean, and unbelievably easy—thanks to the Mastin 3-Step Workflow.
So you can finally ditch those editing marathons and focus on serving your clients, building your business, supporting your family, and enjoying your life.
It really can be that simple.
More than 55,000 photographers are using Mastin Labs to create consistently beautiful images, reclaim time for their businesses and lives, and thrive as working artists. Their photos have appeared in Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Grace Ormonde, Destination I Do, Esquire Magazine, National Geographic, and more.

“Mastin Labs is a positive power in my life!”
Mastin Labs has been one of the biggest influences on my workflow and editing, and has been a positive power in my life.I came across them at a time when I was still developing a style and voice. I am so grateful to Mastin Labs and the team for creating the tools that that have helped me be where I am today, to help deliver the style of work I am so passionate about, and being a part of my client experience. My workflow, my client experience, and my business wouldn't be the same without Mastin Labs.
“Mastin Labs has always come through for me!”
I can honestly say my business would not have been as successful without Mastin Labs. I was looking for consistency in my images and presets that could help me to color match film and Mastin has always come through for me!
We’re in it for the underdog...
...the one carving out their own version of success, no matter how the world tries to keep them down.
I’m Kirk Mastin, the founder and color scientist behind Mastin Labs.
Whatever you’re going through as a photographer, chances are I’ve lived it—from the long nights of editing to the boss who told me,
“Don’t quit your day job.”
Here’s what I know: that passion in your bones is there for a reason.
And that’s why today, my team and I create film-style presets, offer free video education, and gather thousands of like-minded photographers together on Facebook to help you:
make beautiful photos—faster and more easily
build a successful business and life
become the artist you want to be
