Welcome to Leicester Lo-Fi Photography.

We’re a  Leicester based company that embrace the traditional aspects of photography by using old film cameras, toy cameras, pin holes, alternative processes and darkroom printing.

We started in 2011 with no place to call a home, but we managed to hold workshops and events at any place that would have us, and let us convert toilets and cupboards into darkrooms.

Since then moved into accommodation and build a community darkroom, At the Manor House off Narborough Road.

In April 2017, we were forced to vacated the Manor House and started to look for a new darkroom space  – keep checking back for more details

We’re a very social group and our evening sessions and workshops are very relaxed and informal, and a great place to come and learn new skills and techniques you might have never heard of.

Workshops, Socials & Festivals:

We run workshops on all things analogue including, darkroom, pinhole, sunprints, salt printing, cyanotypes, mordencage, polaroid lifts, and anything else we think is cool. Several times a year we will have socials, which could be anything from a gathering in a pub a trip or an event around the country.

 

We have taken part in several festivals in the last few years, including;

Lets-do-Saturdays –  LCB, Leicester

Memories of the Future Festival – Nottingham

London Analogue Festival – London

Format Festival – Derby

Sparks Festival – Leicester

Notts Creative Festival – Nottingham

ArtBeat Festival – Leicester

Handmade Festival – Leicester

Art Trail – Leicester

Riverside Festival – Leicester

We run workshops for the Attenborough Arts Centre, LCB, The Phoenix Arts and The Malt Cross in Nottingham.

We can also turn our hand to big budget, large scale workshops/events, most recently for METRO-BOULOT-DODO
