After Dark


3 spots remaining

After Dark is a space where PhotoAccess members can come together to use the members’ facilities after hours. Over 4 Tuesday nights, you can come into PhotoAccess and use our desktops, film scanners, library, darkroom, and film developing room.

For all sessions, there will be a PhotoAccess tutor present to assist participants, answer any questions, and lend a general helping hand. This tutor will only be supervising, therefore if you are after a taught workshop, please look to our workshop page for upcoming courses.

After Dark is open to all PhotoAccess members who have varying levels of experience, preferably some experience already with our facilities. If you are wishing to use the darkroom and film developing room, some experience with using these spaces and equipment is highly recommended.

If you’ve taken any of our intro courses and are wondering what the next steps are for gaining more experience, this is it!

All After Dark participants must have been formally inducted into the PhotoAccess darkroom before starting the program. Please email hello@photoaccess to arrange your induction if you have not had one already.

The Fine Print

Enrolments for After Dark close at midday 12pm on Friday May 3rd, 2024. As a not-for-profit, our financial margins are narrow and classes require a minimum number of participants to run. In the event that PhotoAccess cancels a workshop, refunds will be paid in full or a transfer allowed free of charge. If a class is postponed, we will endeavour to reschedule at a time convenient to enrolled participants.

PhotoAccess will happily refund or transfer workshop fees up to 7 days prior to the start date of the workshop. If less than 7 days’ notice is given, PhotoAccess can offer a partial refund. Alternatively, enrolment can transfer to another workshop plus a $50 transfer fee. If less than 48 hours are given, no refunds or transfers can be given. Please note that memberships purchased in conjunction with a workshop enrolment are non-refundable. See Terms and Conditions for further details.
