darkroom is coming soon. We are working hard to create a fantastic new facility in Camden Town in north London that will enable you to work comfortably to produce high quality photographic prints. 

 

Facilities

There will be a range of enlargers that will satisfy most photographers’ needs. A Leitz Focomat II and a number of Kaiser enlargers that handle both 35mm and 120 negatives. In addition, our three DeVere 504s are capable of accommodating 5 x 4 negatives.

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

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


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.
