Lakeside Camera Photoworks has been my ONLY choice for photograpy equipment, processing, and printing since 2004. The staff is always friendly, knowledgeable, and willing and able to answer my technical questions. Lakeside Camera's prices are competitive with other local camera stores. While you might pay a little more to shop locally, as opposed to buying over the internet, when you purchase equipment from Lakeside Camera, you get added value because the staff will spend as much time with you as necessary to show you how to operate your camera and to answer your questions. Lakeside Camera offers much more than just excellent equipment and service. The quality and quantity of Lakeside Camera's photo finishing products are incredible. Just visit the store or the website to see the plethora of creative choices for your prints and enlargements! Lakeside Camera Photoworks is THE destination for anyone serious about quality equipment and photo processing!

Best Photo Lab in La.....period – I worked at Lakeside Camera for almost two years and even though I no longer reside in Louisiana, I still patronize the services of that business because they are the best photo lab in the state, in my opinion. Not only is the staff more knowledgeable than most of my photo professors in school, but they are extremely friendly and efficient. Not to mention that it's a beautiful store that does so much more than just "print pictures". They do everything! Anything you could possibly want done with a photograph, they can do. They will bend over backwards to make your project work! Trust an ex employee, I would certainly know :) Another testament to their superior products and service is the fact that even though I no longer work there and I now work for another lab in another state, I made sure that when my lab was looking for another business to outsource some new products, Lakeside Camera was that business. Bottom Line......I highly recommend Lakeside Camera for all your photo needs!

Far superior service and end product – I have been involved with photography on an ameatur basis for the better part of 20 years, in Louisiana (New Orleans and Baton Rouge) and Houston and Dallas, Texas. Lakesside Camera (pre-Katrina and certainly post-Katrina) is the best place to purchase equipment and have your film developed (not to mention the current digital imaging and framing and other products that they now sell and offer). You can go to Wolf and you can have you film developed at Walgreens. If you do not know the difference, you are not competent to make a negative comment. Hang around their store for even a short period of time and you will see professional photographer after professional photographer coming in and out of Lakeside Camera. The salespeople are knowledgeable and do not sell you a bunch of garbage just to get you to make a purchase (LC does not sell garbage). There may be times on a weekend where the store is busy and, perhaps, hectic. That tells me they are sucessful and have happy customers. Ever eat in an empty restaurant only to regret your gut instict that you should not have stepped foot in the place. Those complaining about price: you get what you pay for. If you do not want excellence, shop somewhere else. Vote with your money. After your poor experiences elsewhere, be adult enough to return to Lakeside Camera for quality both in experience and the end product.

Not worth your time or money Lakeside Camera is absolutely terrible. First of all, they charge an arm and a leg for practically everything and then when you get your order it is never right. Lakeside is all glitz and no substance. I was in there today and I had to wait 15 minutes just to get some attention. Then when a salesperson finally helped me she seemed very grumpy and unhappy to be there. Honestly you might as well go to Walgreens, and least then you won't expect more just to be disappointed. I shop at both Lakeside and Bennett's down the street, but from now on I will only go to Bennett's. I will be sure to tell all my friends and family to do the same. If you want to save time, money and frustration I would avoid this place like the plague.

Lakeside's superior service – I have been considering a camera for a ling time. The staff at Lakeside Camera took the time to help me compare and handle four different cameras. This helped me choose the camera that I am truly pleased with. I didn't feel rushed and they even showed me how to use my camera. I will would recommend their services to anyone.

You've got to be kidding me!!!! I have printed TWICE at this place. The first time my print went missing and I had to wait in the store while they reprinted it for me. I figured I'd give them a second chance as I needed some prints in a hurry. I paid the more expensive price to have them done the same day and when I went back to get them, they were printed as cropped images after I specifically asked for them to not be cropped. So after they reprinted them while I waited in the store, they bring the prints out to me and they are printed WRONG again! I couldn't believe it, I was in the store the whole time. This time they printed them to the wrong size! At this point the store was closed and there was nothing I could do as the girl who runs the machine had left for the night. Not only did I have to disappoint my client by not having her pictures printed in time, I still had to waste another lunch hour to drive from mid city to Lakeside to pick up the prints that should have been done the day before.This is obviously not the place to take your prints if you need them done by a certain time or you are a professional. Needless to say, I will NOT be taking my prints to them again.

Are they still in business?? Had a whole batch of film to develop and called them one afternoon to inquire about pricing etc. No one answered. I reached someone at their nearest competitor, but no one at Lakeside. Figured I'd try around 2 p.m. on a Saturday. Again, after several repeated attempts to call no answer. Hint: Their phone disconnects itself after about 8 rings.

Incredible Resource for Small Businesses! After using Lakeside for years for simple photographic prints and miscellaneous services over the years, I only recently visited their flagship store near Lakeside Mall in Metairie. Wow. This place is a candy store for creative people. They can take your film or digital images and produce almost anything you can imagine - cards, wall art, merchandise, multimedia - they are an unbelievable resource for small businesses and anyone who wants to get their photos and images out of their computer and into something memorable. I very highly recommend them.
