About Us

The Darkroom

Our darkroom is available for hire: one enlarger to work on your own, a selection or the whole darkroom (20 enlargers) for groups. We have a great choice of professional-quality enlargers, from 35mm to 4"x5", all suitable for Ilford Multigrade. Two work stations have been specifically designed for use from a wheelchair. We also have a dedicated film processing room and a copy room that can double as a private darkroom, with all facilities (if you have a secret project you are working on).

The Gallery

We aim to celebrate photography in all its forms: from hand-printed black & white prints to colour digital files; hard-hitting news to fine-art; historically significant to contemporary works; from established and well-known photographers to up-and-coming new players.

Our upcoming exhibitions include Photojournalism; contemporary photography; landscapes; portraits; works by students; and special themes from individuals or groups of photographers.

The Shop

We want you to enjoy creating beautiful photographs as affordably as possible. We have everything you need for film photography, from film to printing paper. We even have some pre-owned cameras and other equipment. Of course, we would like you to enjoy our darkroom, but if you want to build your own darkroom, or already have one, then we can supply the chemistry and accessories you need, as well as some pre-owned enlargers and other darkroom gear.

Courage

From the fields of war to the Invictus Games, our serving men and women have displayed courage beyond the imagination of most people. This one-man exhibition by Gordon Traill, himself a veteran of the war in Iraq, commemorates the bravery of Australian soldiers in the First World War and celebrates the on-going courage of wounded veterans in the Invictus Games. Gordon's modern day photos are complimented by a selection from Australian War photographers Frank Hurley and Hubert Wilkins, and some from the "Lost Anzacs" collection.
