Film Photography & Darkroom Supplies

Welcome to the new home of NOVA DARKROOM!

Our new website incorporates Nova Darkroom and Nova Digital under a single brand name: The Imaging Warehouse. We are the same company that has served you consistently since 1983.


Nova started in 1983 with the sole aim to develop and market a unique design of print processor to make life easier for the darkroom user. Now, having expanded our range into other hardware products and chemicals, papers and accessories, we are supplying thousands of darkroom users worldwide with all their processing requirements.

With over 2500 products available from stock, a range of quality used equipment and a team of technical staff boasting over 75 years of knowledge and experience, we are a one-stop shop for all your darkroom needs. Major brands include: Ilford, Kodak, Agfa, Fuji, Fotospeed, Rollei, Adox, Kentmere, Harman and more... We continue to be the world-leading manufacturer of slot-processors and archival washers, offering a full selection of space saving and environmentally efficient products for the modern darkroom.


Our new state-of-the-art distribution center provides climate-controlled conditions for optimal storage of photographic materials. We keep very high stock levels of all materials, allowing us to offer next-day shipping to most parts of the UK and standard shipping to all other areas in the EU and worldwide. All orders placed online or by phone are processed and shipped on the same day (subject to availability and time of day). Our central location in the Midlands allows for fast delivery to all regions.

In 2014 we have partnered with Harman Technology to promote the use of darkrooms and dedicated traditional processes.

To facilitate this further there is now a dedicated website to help people either with a darkroom or looking for one to get together and share resources, please see the link here and get talking to someone near you: Local Darkroom (Click here).


We stock all major brands and also have many obscure and hard-to-find items, catering equally to film and digital photographers. If there in an item we don't stock, then just let us know and we will do our best to get it in for you.
