Darkroom Booth Hire

Darkroom Booth Hire

We have 4 individual darkroom booths with De Vere 504 Enlargers set up for colour and black/white handprinting. You can print from 35mm, 120 or 4x5 negatives.

Each booth is self-contained and comes fully equipped with a set of lenses and everything else required. All you need to bring is paper and the negatives you want to print from.

If it's your first time using our darkroom we will give you a quick run through of our set-up at the start of your first booking.

Or if you are totally new to darkroom printing we run regular workshops to teach you all the basics.
