Large Format B&W Printing Studio

Brooklyn, July 24, 2017 - The Bushwick Community Darkroom (BCD) aims to be among the premier art and educational facilities for photography in NYC, serving artists of all levels of experience. As a volunteer-staffed organization, BCD excels in offering classes in analog photographic technique at affordable rates. In an effort to further serve a broader community of film photographers, BCD has now established a full-service large-format printing studio, suited to produce oversize, exhibition-quality, hand-made Gelatin Silver and C-Prints at rock-bottom prices. 

BCD has provided discount quality film developing and scanning services in addition to hourly darkroom facility rental since 2011. Spring 2017 brought opportunity for expansion within BCD’s current warehouse, enabling BCD to establish a private mural printing darkroom of which the centerpiece is an 8x10” Durst enlarger. 

Professional quality archival silver gelatin and color darkroom prints can now be made for you by us from negatives up to 8”x10”. Print size can be anywhere from 5”x7” up to 50” wide. Hands-on, guided printing sessions are also available for artists who wish to be present for the printing of their work.

Custom print services range from $15 for a 5”x7” print to $350 for a 30”x40” print. Gelatin silver prints of up to 50” wide are available.

Large format darkroom memberships include all of the perks of the Basic Membership (as listed on primary membership page) as well as 4 guaranteed days of large format darkroom access and 4 days of guaranteed days of access to our Private darkroom which is not included in the Basic Membership either.
