Rental Darkrooms in Metro Boston???
I've sold my house, so have no darkroom for the time being. Does anyone know of a rental darkroom in the greater Boston area that is clean, and where I'd be able to process LF film?
Weekend access is a plus, although not a deal breaker. If the parking is easy, I can even bring my own JoBo processor & expert tanks.
Sigh, I know of one in Vermont, but not Boston.
contact the boston photo co-op - 617-524-1720.
they used to rent darkrooms for b/w procesing and printing.
they are in jamacia plain.
I thought there was space at NESOP in Kenmore Square too. Look around online, I found a few places at one point but then ended up just getting stuff for my own apartment.
you might need to be taking a class at nesop
to use their darkroom ..
at least that is how it was in the early 90s ...
its worth a call though ....

speaking of NESOP...they have some great workshops this summer for working pros.....
Boston Photo co-op: MIA if not totally gone.
Thanks John. The number doesn't work anymore, and I went by the old address in JP, and the new address in Dorchester. Nothing. I'm going to see if I can check out NESOP's offerings tonight after work.

he runs a pro-lab / rental lab.
you can process 35mm - 8x10 film
and print upto the same format
it is not a student/ gang darkroom
and has state of the art analog equipment.
he's located 6th floor 369 congress street.
i just got off the phone with him and he said
they are open weekdays and by appointment on
sorry the co-op was a dead-end ..
The Co-op had nice darkrooms. Hope they arent out of business.....
Someone at Newtonville Camera might know of one - 617 965 1240. They always had the ads for the co-op in with the darkroom stuff.
You could also find the Danforth Museum School out in Framingham and ask them. I used to take classes there and they had open time on Saturdays and you didn't have to be taking a class there. If you talk to the right person (no, I don't know who that is), you might be able to get time in there on your own schedule.
