The Getty Images Hulton Archive darkroom has been printing vintage images from original glass plates and film negatives for over 30 years.  The Darkroom team transform vintage negatives into the highest quality, hand-printed photographic prints. This traditional printing creates a full tonal range, exquisite depth and superb contrast.  The team possess considerable experience and a depth of knowledge and skill that has become increasingly rare in a world where wet-process, analogue print has largely given-way to digital reproduction.

The Darkroom offers a range of specialist, traditional black and white services. With a skill-set that spans the analogue to digital transition, the wider Darkroom and Digital-Production team at the Archive have developed a unique understanding as to the conservation, technical and creative challenges that are presented daily when working with such a diverse range of original negatives, prints and transparencies.
