    Darkroom project in Marrickville, Sydney

    Hello fellow Aussie APUGers,

    Myself and 2 mates are in the process of setting up a small darkroom in a standalone building in Marrickville. The space is connected with water and power, and we will be setting it up with designated dry and wet sides. At the moment, we have a Durst L1200 4x5 enlarger on the way, and we have plans of setting up a Jobo ATL-1500 for film processing as well. Ideally we would have 5-6 members of this 'exclusive' darkroom team, so I wanted to extend an invitation to any APUGers looking to get stuck into printing. Bear in mind, none of us have extensive printing experience, so this will be a learning exercise!

    We're about to sign a 12 month lease on the place, and the price is extremely good!

    PM me on here or leave a comment below and I'll get back to you about pricing etc.

    Cheers!

    Awesome! I live in Ryde and would be keen to know how you guys go. I would be particularly interested in doing some e6/c41 film processing as lab prices in sydney are prohibitively expensive...

    I live in St.Ives mate, just down the road! E-6 will be a breeze in the Jobo, and will cost a fraction of the (ridiculous) price being charged at the moment. We can only really get this project off the ground with 4 people or more, so unless we get at least 1 more person, this dream may come to an end!

    Hey jars,
    I'm in Dulwich Hill and would love access to a darkroom nearby. Like you I have very little printing experience, but I'm pretty keen to learn more.

    Cheers,
    Alex

    Good luck. I hope it goes well. I am well set up but having built a few darkrooms over the years happy to offer advice or provide contacts for people in Sydney who might have sinks and other darkroom stuff at good prices.
