I’ve been meaning to drop the word for a few local Irish business’s that should be of interest to photographers here on the auld sod. *
First up, opened a few months ago is The Photo Shop, an online supplier of darkroom supplies – film, paper, chemistry, as well as some darkroom gear like trays, tanks, reels etc. Competitively priced and reasonable shipping
Next up is Right Brain. This Cork based printing company who specialise in working with visual artists and creative professionals. They are the only Epson Digigraphie certified print lab in Ireland, and one of Hahnemühle’s Certified Fine Art Print Studios for digital Fine-Art Printing.
Finally, if you are Cork based, or within reasonable commuting distance of Cork city, watch out for The Dark Room @ Camden Palace Hotel. The Dark Room aims to support and encourage the photographic community in Cork
by providing a broad range of resources, both in terms of a physical place to
work and a forum for exchanging ideas. Offering traditional darkroom printing and film processing facilities along with workshops talks and courses exploring the many aspects of photography.
* Note we do not have any affiliation with these businesses. They are local and supporting the photographic and artist community in Ireland. If you’re buying, try to buy Irish!
