about Think Negative
Welcome. Think Negative is a fine print darkroom located in Marrickville, Sydney NSW.
We are pleased to provide a professionally equipped darkroom and workspace for photographers and photo artists working with analogue processes.
Think negative has a studio space, darkroom, and finishing area, as well as a teaching area that acts as a space to share, view, and show work. The darkroom is for hire and we encourage its use by making it available during the week and weekends. It is also available weeknights to students and regulars upon request.
Our lab service is one of very few in Sydney. Printing, processing, proofing; details can be found here
We are committed photo artists and photographers who recognised the need for a dedicated space from which to work, provide, and inspire.
Have a look at our workshop program to gain a better idea of what we teach. Our workshop program will be expanding shortly and an image gallery will give you a taste of what you can view.
Whether you wish to book yourself into a course or workshop, or you need to take advantage of our lab service, don't hesitate calling or emailing us.
about Enrico Scotece
I have been a photographer and educator since 2001, currently a Lecturer in Design at Western Sydney University. Teaching into photography and design has presented itself with many opportunities and challenges and now after fifteen years after graduating with an Honours degree in Design / Photomedia I am undertaking a Phd.
Think Negative was established in order to allow for a creative analogue space for photographers of all levels. From Beginners to Master Classes, I conduct workshops and courses in the use of black and white film and fine black and white printing.
Photography has always been in my life. I think photography is in everyones life but rarely goes noticed, until that is, one day
you pick up a camera, load some film and think, if I were to go out and make a photograph what would it be?
Photography teaches you how to be humble, inspiring, and passive, yet remain considerate of what goes on in your everyday surrounding. It definitely taught me how to find my spirit.
