Excellent facilities and work at great prices.. a valuable resource for us who use film and like prints.

Neda M – 27 Apr 2018

Just emailing to say thank you so much for yesterday! I am definitely pleased with the negatives, contact sheets and hand prints I produced and will certainly be booking another session – this time with a friend.

Samantha S – 25 Apr 2018

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for Sunday! Realised how much I’ve missed being creative and using my hands to work, so I’m very grateful. It was such a great day, and I’m really excited to spend more time developing and practising the process further.

I have really enjoyed my printing session with David in February – it has been a wonderful day that I won’t forget.

Barry C – 11 Apr 2018

Thank you so much for all your help over the many pleasurable sessions I’ve had at BWB.

It’s been a delight watching the darkroom expand and more people come in over the years, the facilities and equipment remain second-to-none in my experiences, and I’ve used many darkrooms in the past!

If you’re new to this, or a seasoned veteran, Keith couldn’t make you feel any more welcome, and you will quickly be producing excellent work in his well setup darkroom.

Simon B – 26 Mar 2018

Thanks again for the excellent session and Keith’s invaluable help to really get to grips with development of negatives, it was excellent.

Thank you very much for all the tuition – Please forward my thanks to David the last session was really helpful. I had a really happy and unforgettable time at Black & White Basement. Thank you for the space and hospitality – looking forward to seeing more of your darkroom when I see you next time.

Hired the area for some film processing, it was very cheap. B&W were very helpful and quite a nice dude.

James P – 31 July 2016

I had such a terrific time on Monday with you guys – brilliant! Got some lovely prints last time and I’d like very much to do a second day of tuition. Very glad to have found you and thanks again for your excellent welcome and tuition.

Sebastian Rooks – 13 May 2016

I just booked me second tuition session in Black & White Basement. The owner is really friendly, their equipment is professional and they provide a one on one tuition to learn.
I will advertise them to all my photographer friends who need a quiet and peaceful environment for developing their negs. and do enlargements.

Thank you, I’ve received the scans, they are perfect!

Ron Humphreys – 21 Aug 2014

It was so good to hear that craft skills are on the way back! Many thanks indeed for turning round the prints so quickly. You’ve done wonders with the two ice cream eaters – just the ticket! I only wish I’d ordered some larger prints too! Anyway, thanks for all your efforts – rest assured I’ll be recommending BWBasement to all my friends. Really pleased!

D Cottle – 14 Aug 2014

I just wanted to say thanks very much again for all your help yesterday. It was so kind of you to help me set up the enlarger/easel and take time out of your busy day to explain how to make my prints better. It was absolutely invaluable for me. I’m really very grateful and learned such a lot! I will send you some possible dates to book a half day in the darkroom soon.

I just wanted to say thank you again for so kindly giving up your time to teach me today. It is always a privilege for me to have the opportunity to learn from you, and to print in the darkroom, and today was no exception.

Thank you for all your kindness and I very much look forward to getting back into the darkroom next week for more printing.

Andrew Tadrou – 10 Aug 2014

Thank you Keith for your efficient service, the film arrived and I am very pleased with your service and the results.

Thank you until next time,


Shashank – 4 August 2014

Thanks, I had a great time in the darkroom today!

Sara R – 30 July 2014

What a surprising delight this afternoon ended up being. Thank you so much for all your time. Thank you for all your generosity and kindness and mentorship. I would love to come in another session sometime soon. I am afraid that I have caught the ‘darkroom bug’.

Louise Pearson – 10 July 2014

I work in an historic photograph archive and felt that I would really benefit from understanding more about the science and techniques behind the prints I work with. I enjoyed the experience very much and I definitely think the process of making a photograph is clearer in my head now! My colleagues were interested in what I had learnt and enjoyed seeing my prints.

Best wishes and thanks to Dave as well,
