Workshop  Facilities 

With a state of the art film-based darkroom, equipped with eight Saunders color head enlargers, and an 8x10 enlarger for those really big negatives, the Photographers’ Formulary offers a first rate venue to produce high quality photographic work. Two additional darkrooms designed and equipped for the alternative processes, combined with large, accessible work-spaces, assure maximum opportunity for a successful workshop experience. There is always ample darkroom time in the evenings for students to work. Workshop instructors can supervise evening sessions or there may be un-supervised sessions with your lab assistant for those who want to make the most of their time here.

If location, location, location is important in real estate, it’s crucial in photography. The Photographers’ Formulary sits in the middle of 26 acres of Montana’s Swan Valley, surrounded by mountains to the east and to the west, and along the shores of seven glacial lakes. The Bob Marshall Wilderness, the largest wilderness area on the continent of North America, lies just across the highway on the western slopes of the Rockies and climbs to the peaks of the Rocky Mountains. Brilliant sunrises and golden sunsets add to the beauty of our unique location, and help make it a photographer’s land of opportunity. To the west, across pasture-lands next door, the Mission Mountain Wilderness stretches into the distance.
