Update December 16th:
Due to the nationwide lockdown in the Netherlands, the Doka is temporarily closed.
As of June 5th, I am slowly opening the Darkroom for members. I start with a maximum of 4 persons (each person must be fever free and Covid-19 free). If you have a mask you are welcome to use it (we can even make a better Breaking Bad photo). I am hoping for some common sense of each member 😉
All members are in a dedicated Whatsapp group, so you will read the rest of the details over there.
People who are not a member yet and are interested in analog photography and darkroom printing in Amsterdam, please contact me by email.
At the moment the HQ of Analog Club Amsterdam is located at MK24. At MK24 Analog Club Amsterdam monitors a darkroom with 10 enlargers and a room where you can develop film and have a chat.
Opening Hours Doka / Darkroom
FRIDAY: 19:00 - 22:00 SUNDAY (twice a month): 10:00 - 13:00 / 11:00 - 14:00***
Times may vary especially on Sunday’s
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*
- 30 euro membership fee for Analog Club Amsterdam ( due to Covid valid until December 31st)
- 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 😉
