Focal Point Studio, Darkroom & Gallery
Photography studio, gallery and public access darkroom. Workshops and a different exhibition featuring many photographers every month.

Description of Venue

We celebrate photography in all its forms: colour and black-and-white; hard-hitting news to fine-art; historically significant to contemporary works; from established and well-known photographers to emerging and amateur.

Our fully-equipped studio, with cyclorama (infinity wall) is available for hire any day. We have three shooting positions, with a variety of backdrops (or bring your own backdrop), plenty of lighting equipment, stands, tripods, reflectors, etc. Hire rates are very reasonable: $50 per hour for non-members; $25 per hour for members (memberships start at only $25 per year).

We have the largest and best-equipped public-access darkroom in Australia. Our darkroom is available for hire: one enlarger, a selection or the whole darkroom (20 enlargers) for groups. Membership is required. Hire rates start as low as $10 per hour.

We also run regular workshops on darkroom technique and analogue photography.

Our galleries host a different exciting exhibition every month, featuring work by many photographers, from professional to emerging and amateur. We occasionally have special one-day, or weekend events as well. The galleries (160 sq m and 40 sq m) areĀ  also available to hire for individual or group exhibitions or for corporate events or product launches.

Our shop sells film, paper and chemistry for black-and-white film photography, as well as used darkroom, studio and general photography equipment.
