“Steven is a great photographer, and introduced me to the process of enlarging black and white film. His darkroom is first rate with everything you could possibly need and more. Highly recommended.” – Ron

“Steven’s darkroom is absolutely one of a kind for the area! I’ve been looking for a place to develop and print film for a while, and I was so happy to find this place. Steven is an expert in the field and is wonderful to learn from. I’ve never made prints before and he walked us through every step of the way. If you are interested in analog photography at all, this is the place to start as getting your hands wet with developer is the best way to learn the art.” – Kiran

“Steven is a pleasure to work with, knowledgeable, great at teaching, would recommend to anyone interested in learning the great art of developing and printing film.” – Tom

“We really enjoyed Steven’s darkroom! It’s in a cool location in the country, away from the all commotion. (Interesting stuff close-by: walked around John Sargeant Park before and ate at Keel & Curley Winery after.) Steven thoroughly explained the workings of the lab and we proceeded to make prints and have fun with the magic of darkroom work. He’s patient and obviously enjoys sharing his passion for black and white darkroom photography. We’ll be back.” -Roy

“Found this Darkroom here on google and was contemplating going because I live 3 hours away… I decided to give it a try with some classes from Steven and let me tell you it was the best decision ever, He takes his time and is laid back every step of the way. I learned so much about printing all hands on !! Steven is a great guy and is very passionate about film photography and Darkroom printing please do yourself a favor and go learn something or rent some time in his darkroom.” – Cian

“Steven is so knowledgeable and is a great teacher! A unique location with no outside interruptions!” – Barb

“Absolutely thrilled to have found this! Greatly appreciate having a place to get back into a decades-old hobby. Perfect set up and the intro lessons with Steven are fun and full of helpful hints.

“Super awesome!” – Melissa

“Steven is a great guy. He owns an amazing set up so everything is easy to follow, his instructions are clear and you actually have fun. I really do recommend 100% this place is the place to go.” – Victor

“What to say about Steven and his darkroom service? Brilliant. I was reluctant at first, but when introduced to his darkroom I was positively stumbled. Rarely can you find an enthusiast in Film Photography, yet even harder can you find one film photographer interested in landscape. Steven is the one. He offers a great range of Black and White film service, from developing your own film to print developing at a fair price. Moreover, he is offering Orientation about Film photography and able to instruct you on developing your own films. I would highly recommend Steven Darkroom Services to anybody who would like to give Black & White Film Photography a try, or whoever professional. Great services and great personality.” – Huy
