darkroom is a fantastic new facility in Camden Town in north London where you can work comfortably to produce high quality photographic prints. 

 

Facilities

We have a range of enlargers that will satisfy most photographers’ needs, ranging from easy to use Kaiser 35mm/120 enlargers to a range of De Vere and LPLs capable of handling everything from 35mm to 5 x 4.

Initially, you will need to attend a short Induction session with one of our experienced technicians, to ensure you understand how all the equipment works and what our standard operating practices are.

Once inducted, as a member you can book an enlarger for a session of independent printing. darkroom provides all essential chemicals (developer, stop, fix, etc.), so all you need to bring is your own paper. darkroom even provides a processing service for films received at least 24 hours in advance.

No previous darkroom experience? Don't worry, we offer workshops to get you started, or if you've mastered the basics there will be more advanced courses too. Head over to our Courses and Workshops page to find out more and book your first workshop.


It’s an exciting time to be setting up darkroom and providing the opportunity for a whole new generation of photographers to explore traditional processes.
