CORONAVIRUS / COVID 19
OUR POLICY STATEMENT
We are naturally complying with all Government guidelines and requirements in order to minimise contact and avoid cross-infection.
Unlike communal darkrooms, ours are of course self-contained and for exclusive use significantly reducing the possibility of close contact with other clients. However, in the current circumstances we feel it is prudent to suspend our Darkroom Hire and 1-to-1 Tuition services until further notice.
Nevertheless, we remain 'open for business' for our film processing and hand enlarging services so will continue to welcome both mail order customers and personal callers to our photolab.
Thank you for your continued support during this challenging period.
Black & White Basement
A Real Photolab for Real Silver Prints
If you love traditional, analog black & white film you’ll find a warm welcome here at B&W Basement.
We are a specialist black & white photolab based in NW London with over 30 years experience and pride ourselves on our competitive prices and personal service.
We have three self-contained darkrooms for hire by film photographers using 35mm, 120 medium format and 5×4 sheet.
Our professional services include black & white film processing, traditional silver gelatine hand enlarging & One-to-One darkroom tuition.
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.
You are most welcome to visit our darkrooms and facilities before booking
