If you want to learn photography, you’re in the right place; Rick’s Darkroom offers short courses, workshops, and extensive photography lessons to everyone who want to explore the art of photography.


It all started when Ricardo San Juan fell in love with photography and decided that he doesn’t just want to take beautiful photographs, he also wanted to share his knowledge and skills with others who wanted to learn. It was in 2000 when he opened Ricks Darkroom and he just had a handful of participants back then.


Now, Rick’s Darkroom teaches thousands of photography enthusiasts not only in Canada, but in Australia, Japan, and in the UK as well.
