    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.

    Thanks!

    Tim

    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.

    to use their darkroom ..
    at least that is how it was in the early 90s ...

    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.

    hi tim

    give bill lapatete a call: (617) 338-3836
    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
    the weekends.

    sorry the co-op was a dead-end ..

    have fun!

    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.
