Located in Melbourne, the Fox Darkroom offers a regular program of film photography and darkroom printing workshops. Fox also organises international workshops providing opportunities to travel, learn and capture memorable images alongside award-winning documentary photographers.

Our workshops cover a wide range of techniques and formats, and are tailored to suit everyone from beginners to accomplished artists and professionals.

If you’ve just picked up a film camera for the first time, or currently shoot digital and want to give analog a try, we suggest starting with “Film Photography & Developing Basics”. In this workshop we’ll cover the nuts and bolts of manual exposure, and you’ll walk away with your own hand developed film negatives that are ready to work with in the darkroom. If you already shoot black and white film but are new to darkroom printing, feel free to jump straight into “Darkroom Printing Basics”. These two workshops run on a regular basis; please use the links above to check availability and make a booking. If you can’t find a suitable date – or would prefer a private workshop – please visit our Private Workshops page. We also run advanced workshops for the more experienced photographers to brush up on a few skills – have a look at our “Medium Format” and “Large Format” workshops for more information. Many of our workshop participants become members of The Fox Darkroom to continue practicing their darkroom skills. Members benefit from preferable pricing for darkroom hire and become part of an enthusiastic community of film photographers. Click here to find out more and become a member!
