    review rating 5  The Fox Darkroom is an incredible space and the photography and developing classes are an equally incredible experience. Tom is such a patient and passionate teacher who can cater for people of all abilities and levels of experience. I was lucky enough to do the photography, developing and printing workshops and loved every second. It gave me a true appreciation of photography and the planning, techniques and knowledge that go into producing a beautiful image. It's a far leap from the world of digital cameras and iPhones, but it's a leap worth taking!

    review rating 5  I had the pleasure of attending The Fox Darkroom workshop over the weekend, and loved every minute. Tom has created something very special. A little photography haven in what can only be described as an inspiring location – an old wool store building. The location and Tom’s amazing set-up can only put you in good spirits when you take the workshop. Tom is a great guide, and will tailor the course depending on each individual’s goals. The negative making process was fantastic, being able to create something from scratch. The darkroom experience was something foreign to me, having come into photography in the digital age. I think it’s very important for us to go back and learn these techniques to understand how it was done prior to digital photography. And I really appreciate Tom creating workshops like this to preserve the process, and reinvigorate the film process in this modern tech-focussed age. At the end of the workshop I was also able to see some of Tom’s photography work that he had done over in Ghana for the Photo for Freedom project. I was blown away. Amazing work for a meaningful and important cause. I wish The Fox Darkroom all the best, and look forward to doing the printing workshop in the new year. James

    review rating 5  I did both the Photography Developing and Printing workshops and thoroughly loved them both. The studio is a great set up, in a wonderful old warehouse. Our hosts Tom and Harriet are friendly and relaxed and have great advice and tips to share. They make you feel very welcome, unlike some other workshops I've done where the photographers can be a bit arrogant!! We came away from the 2 workshops with a perfectly developed roll of film and 2 framed prints. I highly recommend these guys to anyone wanting to get back to the basics of photography and there's nothing better than watching your pictures appear in front of your eyes. Thanks Tom and Harriet, can't wait to get back and print some more!

    review rating 5  Attended the darkroom basics workshop last weekend and I had a blast. Jake is great to learn from as he is passionate about the topic but also very personable and not condescending like many people teaching basics tend to be. Looking forward to attending more workshops.

    review rating 5  Being in the Fox Darkroom and seeing photos come to life as they go through the printing process is such a surreal experience. Thank you Tom for providing people with a cool space, great workshops and a wonderful photography community. It's so inspirational being surrounded by such creative minds that have extensive knowledge in photography and working with film. Creating photos in the darkroom ignited the child like curiosity in me and I can’t wait to go again and print some more photos. If you love photography, you have to check this place out

    review rating 5  I was lucky enough to recently be among the first groups attending the Film Photography and Traditional Printing workshops at The Fox Darkroom. The studio space Tom has built here is crying out to be photographed, yet alone the beautiful surrounds of Kensingtons industrial past. The Wool store buildings in which the studio are set are a treasure trove of urban landscapes, still life studies and edgy portraiture back drops. Tom and his friends at The Fox offer a wealth of creative and technical know how shared through friendly and informative workshops. I would challenge anyone with an interest to spend the afternoon at a printing workshop and not be queuing for darkroom membership by the end of the day. Keep up the great work.

    review rating 5  The Fox Darkroom is more than just a space for making photos, it's also a place for making friendships and it provides like-minded people an opportunity to connect. Spend a little time at The Fox and you'll quickly feel like you're a part of something bigger, a community, a home of ideas and a place for those who seek encouragement to pursue what inspires your heart to press that shutter every time a moment passes by. It's a place to feel inspired and it's a place you're missing out on if you haven't yet been.
