The Bushwick Community Darkroom aims to make film photography

affordable and accessible to everyone.

We have vacated the premises at 110 Troutman st and are temporarily without a brick & mortar space while our new home is prepared for use.

In an effort to preserve the accessibility of film photography at this time we have launched the United Film Lab Network: A global network of darkrooms and film labs offering exclusive access & discounts to members.

At this time, we are ONLY accepting mail in film development. Send us your B&W and color film for development, scans and more!


  1. Fill out the form online

  2. After form completion, print free postage here!

  3. Drop off at USPS location or their blue collection mailbox

  4. You will get a confirmation email and payment confirmation when we receive it

USPS location

Subscribing United Film Lab Network members gain access to discounted services at partner darkrooms & labs all over the world (more every day!) as well as exhibition opportunities and a global community of film lovers accessible 24/7/365 via Slack.


When we re-open will have both color and b&w gang and private darkrooms available. We are also going to make our Fuji Frontier scanner and Noritsu V50 roller transport color film developer available to members upon training.


Classes & workshops are suspended until our new space is built out.

We are a woman-founded and operated darkroom!
