The Darkroom at LACP

Photo by Lisa Bevis


As part of our ongoing commitment to supporting photography in all its forms, we are especially thrilled and proud to offer the photographic community a brand new, 400 square foot darkroom. Built for the professional but user-friendly for beginners, The Darkroom at LACP boasts five Durst 1200 4×5 enlargers complete with Rodenstock Apochromatic lenses (several Rodenstock lenses are available in each focal length), four bladed easels of all sizes, and capability of up to 20×24 prints. A hot press machine for flattening prints is also available. With high ceilings and ample ventilation, master printer Steve Moulton has labeled the room as “the nicest darkroom in Los Angeles.”

NOTEThis a black-and-white print ONLY lab – film developing is not available.
