Queensland Centre for Photography B&W darkroom is available for hire to members only.
New members who are able to work in the darkroom unsupervised will need to go through an induction session ($66) to familiarise themselves with the equipment and the working environment. This is not a teaching workshop.
The darkroom is well equipped for film processing and enlarging of silver gelatin prints, including film drying cabinet, number of enlargers, various sizes of processing trays, and a heat press for fibre prints.
The darkroom is capped at 2 people per session. Single bookings are possible at an extra charge. Please contact us for rates.
Basic chemicals for film processing and printing are included in the hire. Extra chemicals can be purchased if needed.
Booking can be made 3 days prior and payment will be required upon entry to the darkroom. Credit cards or Eftpos payments are welcome.
If you are interested in film processing and printing, but have no previous or limited experience, we can offer you one of our start-up workshops or a private tutor one-on-one session. We offer both, beginners and advanced workshops.
We have teamed up with ILFORD for supplies of all chemistry, papers and film. All stock is available to the public at regular prices and is discounted to members.
