Imperial College Photographic Society

Buy membership


We have a fully stocked darkroom with paper, chemicals and all the necessary equipment to develop and print. We also run tutorials for those who want to learn how to develop film and print. More information is available on the darkroom section of the website. There is also a dedicated Facebook group, where you can discuss anything darkroom related.


We are a well-equipped society, and we allow all our members to borrow our many cameras, lenses, flashes, lighting, tripods and other equipment. We also have access to a studio next to the darkroom, along with backdrops and strobe studio lighting.

Visit the equipment page to find out more, and fill in the borrowing request form if you want to borrow anything.
