35mm Camera Use / Film Developing / Contact Sheet Printing
This is an engaging and fun analogue photography experience. We’ll provide your camera, guide you through the streets of Peckham, instruct you on how to develop your film and assist you through the contact printing process.
Whether your interested in architecture, people or landscapes we’ll be on hand to guide you through good camera use, understanding your environment and getting to the heart of what you want to capture. Then you’ll develop your film and print a contact sheet of your days work.
You can also book this as a private workshop, run at a time to suit you. Email us or book via the ‘Private Workshops’ menu.

Where will the course take place and how many people will attend:
The course will take place in the Bright Rooms darkroom & studio with a maximum of 3 people attending. Why just 3? Because it allows us to run a very personal course that attends to the individual needs of all our participants.
We need 2 weeks notice if you can’t make your workshop or need to move dates. If you cancel within 2 weeks we’ll have to run your workshop at an additional cost. Why? We like to limit our workshops to small numbers so everyone receives a better learning experience. If you cancel and move onto another workshop we would have to give you a place that someone else could have bought and therefore you will have occupied two workshop places.
