Film Camera and Darkroom Odds and Ends

Post by Randall T »

I've been sorting through things I no longer need and have some odds and ends left over from a few decades ago. I would rather part with it by finding a good home to someone, or a group of people, who still have the desire to do things the "old" way. I did part with a fair bit of it years ago to a Fine Arts student whose curriculum required the use of such medium. If anyone can suggest a club, student, or whoever that has a darkroom or still uses 35mm film, please post a suggestion or shoot me a PM. I have a list of stuff available and may find more that's hiding in dark corners somewhere.

Thanks for the reply. I did consider UBCO but it seems the curriculum has changed somewhat, but I did find a local High School that has analog photography programs and also a darkroom. I'm happy it will be going to kids at that level as that's how I was introduced into visual arts decades ago.

Ask them if they would also be interested in getting an Ansco Shur-Shot camera too.

I imagine it was Rutland high.when I was working for Rainbow Photo they had a good photography course.

It's getting tough finding a good home for this stuff.
I tried pretty much giving away a Durst Laboratory 138 not too long ago, and couldn't find anyone interested in it in Western Canada. Although someone in Nova Scotia wanted me to ship it for free.

It's MBSS in West Kelowna. They have a need for analog equipment and I'm sure would appreciate any donations.
