How Our Doka Sessions Works/

You need to be a member to make use of the darkroom. Each member has to reserve a spot by whatsapp or email. Because of the limited number of enlargers, it is First Reserved First Served.

Some details for the first 20 members

  • you must have Doka experience else you need to take a course at MK24*
  • 35 euro membership fee for Analog Club Amsterdam valid for 6 months (during Covid it was all a bit different)
  • only members can use the Doka; fee per session is €15 or €65 for a 5x “strippenkaart”
  • opening hours:
    • FRIDAY 19:00 – 22:00
    • SUNDAY 10:00 – 13:00
  • bring your own paper (chemicals are provided)
  • bring a good mood
  • enlargers are limited so “Firs Reserved, First Served”

* Darkroom Courses
Don’t panic if you never been to a photography darkroom. We got you covered, you can take a darkroom course at MK24. Click here for the direct link to MK24 Analog Photography Course
During Open Doka it is possible to develop your black and white negatives as well. In the circumstance where each enlarger is occupied, it is still possible to only develop black and white negatives**. For those who like to visit and just develop some rolls, for a talk, then you don’t need to pay the 15 euro.


**fair use policy
a couple of rolls per person not your 6 months stack of undeveloped film rolls 😉
***depends on my sleep 😉

    1. Hello,

  3. Hello, I’m an engineering student in Ankara, Turkey. I am going to visit Amsterdam for 1-2 days in September. I have darkroom experience that I gained from my university’s darkroom. During my visit to Amsterdam, I’d love to meet with other analog photography lovers and hear their experiences. I was going to ask if it is possible for me to visit your club and use the darkroom? Have a good day! 🙂
