I've been printing in the darkroom using traditional methods for over 10 years now, and I am still hooked. Come with me into my hand-made basement darkroom, and watch as we print a Black and White Film photo by hand.
It takes time and patience, but the final results are totally worth it. By working with black and white film, you can achieve a beautiful finish and atmosphere in a print that digital just sometimes cannot get. As hand-made prints, I feel the photos are so lovely and tactile and hold more than just the story of the photo within them - they have come to life through a little bit of magic.

Are you thinking about having Black and White Film included in a photo shoot? I'd be happy to help! I offer a specialist upgrade for adding on some rolls of Black and White Film to your digital photo shoot. This gives you the magic of film with negatives to keep, hand-processed prints and a really cool Contact Print that makes a great piece of wall art alongside your gorgeous prints.
Take a look at the details for adding this onto shoots for Family Lifestyle and Newborn Photography here.
