Darkroom – both traditional and digital

The Club has a darkroom with enlargers equipped for both monochrome and colour work. For digital work computing facilities, including negative and flatbed scanners, a card reader for digital camera media, and an A3 inkjet printer are available. A group of members meets on Thursday evenings for digital work.


The Club meeting/lecture room doubles as a studio, with a variety of tungsten and electronic flash units. Backgrounds are available as either paper rolls or as curtains. There is also a model’s changing room.

Other facilities

The club has facilities for dual projector AV slide presentations, and a digital projector.

There is a small kitchen area where light refreshments can be prepared.

Also available are a mounting board cutting facility for making bevel edge window mattes and a small library.

These facilities are available for the use of the members at any time, except for Tuesdays and Thursday evenings and any other dates/times which may be specified for Club Meetings. Members’ printed copies of the Syllabus contain rules for the use of these facilities.
