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.
