After Dark re-envisioned!
After Dark 2023 is a space where PhotoAccess members can come together to use the members facilities after hours. Over 4 Tuesday nights, you can come into PhotoAccess and use our desktops, film scanners, library, darkroom, and film developing room.
For a few sessions, there will be a PhotoAccess tutor present to assist participants, answer any questions, and lend a general helping hand. This tutor will only be supervising, therefore if you are after a taught workshop, please look to our workshop page for upcoming courses.
After Dark is open to all PhotoAccess members who have varying levels of experience, preferably some experience already with our facilities. If you are wishing to use the darkroom and film developing room, some experience with using these spaces and equipment is highly recommended.
If you’ve taken any of our intro courses and are wondering what the next steps are for gaining more experience, this is it!
All After Dark participants must have been formally inducted into the PhotoAccess darkroom before starting the program. Please email [email protected] to arrange your induction if you have not had one already.
After Dark runs in 4 week month-by-month blocks, Tuesday evenings from 6pm-9pm.
June dates are 6th, 13th, 20th, and 27th, 2023.
We will provide all the chemical and equipment you need if you are using the darkroom or are developing film. All you need to bring is photographic paper, film, and any other materials you may want to use while in our facilities.
Photographic paper and film can be purchased from PhotoAcesss during office hours (Tuesday – Saturday, 10am – 4pm)
