What’s Included

24/7 access by reservation (click here for Darkroom Bookings)

Members are able to reserve the Darkroom online at anytime so long as there is space available and no workshops or inductions are taking place. Members are expected to already have basic knowledge of black and white processing. Take a workshop first if you feel you want to learn how to get started!

Members Night

As well as 24/7 bookable access we have a weekly Members night, Tuesday Evenings 7pm to 9pm. Come along to a supervised darkroom session with Matt Sillars. Any level of darkroom skill welcome, including those in need of a refresher, or just starting out. These sessions are for sharing tips and tricks and getting feedback on your photographs and prints. Social and productive!

Members Days

In the past we have run free workshop days for members, with workshops such as Post Card printing, Toning Prints.

Chemistry for paper and film

At this time, membership includes film and print chemicals – amazing! Members are responsible for their own photographic paper and film. The Darkroom also has some stock available in-house for purchase from Ag Photographic.

Please note that The Inverness Darkroom is being run on a volunteer basis. All of the equipment and furnishings have been very generously donated, and the rent is being generously subsidized by Ag Photographic.  Please be respectful of other members’ / volunteers’ time and effort to make this possible – and, of course, all prices are subject to change.
