    Hi,

    I'm currently looking for some studio space to do my photography work in, including making a darkroom. Developing 35mm at home is just getting really annoying (dust, moving houses, not enough space etc etc)
    If anyone knows of anything please get back to me!

    Cheers

    I know of a community of studio spaces being set up down Geelong way, and my darkroom can always be rented for a few beers.

    steveR thanks for your amazing offer, I don't have a car so might try find something around the city suburbs for now, but if all else fails i might be bringing you a slab every now and then haha..

    Well I WAS up your way (for the past 10 years), now down in Geelong though. My Partner used to work out of The Black Factory in Northcote, a big shared creative space. I think the guy who runs it (a photographer) was Hugh somebody... They may have space available

    ^ thanks for that, pretty expensive as you have to do a day long print making class to be showen the darkroom etc which costs $150 for the day.. but could be a very nice darkroom.
    going to go check out the MCC as soon as I have a thursday night off work.

    thanks everyone for the replys!

    Yeah! (is that your real name?) come on Monday 27th Feb, that's the night the Traditional print groups meets. Much better than going on a Thursday when most of the people would even know we have a darkroom and studio.
