Darkroom Printing Service Edinburgh

August 16, 2010

Darkroom Printing Service Edinburgh. Until a couple of years ago I used to do a lot of darkroom printing. Darkroom printing is one of my very favourite things to do, photography or not. There are few things I enjoy more than mixing my own chemicals then processing both films and paper and seeing the resulting images come through.

If it were practical, in terms of both focal length, time and money, I would shoot absolutely everything in either 4×5″ or Hasselblad 6×6 format, but sadly time doesn’t allow this. But, in the very near future, I will be starting a darkroom printing service. Also, in October of this year I’m shooting what should be a pretty awesome wedding near Loch Ness so I’m planning to shoot a load of the wedding on either a Mamiya RB67 or Hasselblad 503.

Here are a few examples of the prints that I have produced. If you’re looking for someone to do some darkroom then feel free to get in touch. I sadly can’t print transparency films but rather print colour negs onto suitable paper.

I’m also extermely accomplished at black and white printing. I can develop black and white films for you and I also do black and white fibre based printing. My personal favourite papers are by Kentmere but I can print onto Ilford or other papers to suit (I have a number of papers in my stock).
