THE DARKROOM is SINZ latest creation for its members. Opening in the first quarter of 2019 THE DARKROOM is a permanent, furnished photo studio space that can be rented by up to 6 guests. It will also host ‘camera club’ photography sessions for serious photographers to practice their skills in photographing the female form.
The DARKROOM is available to SINZ members on a reservation basis for parties of 2 to 6.
We felt there was a need for something like this. Many of us love to take photos or model or simply find a unique, intimate spot to host another couple. This can be difficult to do at home, especially if you have children and want to work with another couple or a professional photographer! Small rooms are difficult to work in, there is no lighting or props, and the results are never what you want. You can try a nice hotel room but they are expensive. After taxes, and parking you can spend several hundred dollars for a room that you do not intend to stay in overnight. In addition you still have the issue of being in a public space, and ‘neighbors’ to be concerned about. The rooms itself is not much better equipped.
THE DARKROOM solves all of these problems by featuring:
1000 sq ft space , twice as big as your average hotel room.
Lockers for personal effects and to allow you to change into multiple outfits
Photographic lighting both built in and movable, along with chroma key backdrops
A variety of ‘sets’ including
A huge designer leather sectional couch
A stripper pole
and a separate room featuring a unique 7’ ROUND bed
A dry bar with full size refrigerator for your beverages and/or food.
A newly remodeled bathroom (no shower)
55” flat screen for viewing your results
FREE Parking next to entrance
The ideal spot for a date night!
