I don't have a calibration tool but I would like to print some photo

I did some test with my Canon Selphy and an ICC profile I found online and the result seems pretty accurato but the print shop recommend "The brightness of the monitor should lie between 90 and 120 cd/qm." and on MacBook seems not possible to get this data from system

I was wondering if it would be possible using camera meter, or external light meter to convert the data I read into 90 and 120 cd/qm

Provided that the screen renders your images satisfactorily, there's no reason that screen brightness should have any effect on your prints.
