In this ever digitized world, the UBC PhotoSoc still provides facilities for people who work with film and analogue processes. 

With the generosity of the UBC Visual Arts department, we now provide film development and darkroom use in the UBC Binning Studio. We provide D-76 black and white film processing, chemicals and photo paper is provided with the Type C & Type D PhotoSoc membership.

*NOTE* The AMS is currently renovating our old club space into a brand new space with a fully outfitted studio, darkroom, film processing area, and digital lab. During the renovation process, we have made temporary changes to our facilities. The new space is expected for June 2018.
