    I was about to mention darkroom studios as well and then I read the whole thread. As the manager of a community darkroom and photo school, I am amazed at the number of folks out there who don't know about the resources out there.

    Hmmm, I think I am seeing an opportunity!

    Welcome to APUG, you will find a wealth of information here and a lot of really great folks.

    Paul.

    Well, thanks everyone for the great welcome! It's been a long time since I've been around the photography hobby, I forgot how nice everyone is! Glad to be back!

    Hi Scott, welcome to APUG. Good luck on the darkroom setup journey.

    I don't live in NJ, but I will be there next week for a week... Hope the weather is good

    I actually live a bit of a distance (by NJ standards, 83 miles) from The Darkroom Studios and learned of Brad's operation from my friend Jon Cohen who reps photo lines. At the time, there was at least 3 photo shops in my area that carried a pretty good line of film, paper, and chemicals, so I never got around to making the road trip. I did Jon a favor a while back and picked him up at the Philly airport and he suggested we stop in at Brad's.

    Damn, I'm glad we did! Not only does Brad have an outstanding facility, he also keeps a damn good stock of supplies in his store. As fate would have it, my more local sources of darkroom supplies have recently all bellied up, so now the drive to Merchantville doesn't look to be as long as it used to!

    I should also mention... Not only is Brad a great guy, he's also a class A nut-job!

    Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    Oh boy... I should have come in here sooner. Oi. Pot calling kettle black eh Mr Fowler?

    Anyway, welcome to Apug from Brad (no shameless plug needed, they all did it for me!). This certainly is a great resource for new, old and new-from-old photo folks anywhere. Sounds like maybe we need to organize a Philly/Camden adventure - can't them North Joisey Shore Boys have all the fun around here

    You guys can count me in from SJ as well as I am from Marlton. Luckily I am only about 15 mins from the Dark Room Studios and just finished an awesome darkroom class with Brad. In the next few weeks I should be making my first "real" MF exposures so it's all very exciting. Oh, and I can vouch for the fact that Brad is a nut.

    Hi, welcome. I'm from Phila. Sorry to say I never met Brad. But I do shoot with a Yashica D and a Bronica SQa. And some pinholes on the side. I'm sure you'll enjoy it here.
