 Darkroom Does Beautiful Work

“Darkroom photography is on of the highest quality and professional photographers I’ve worked with.

This, is coming from a published editorial stylist. I’ve worked with McKinley many times over the span of ten years and his skills always gave amazing photos.

He has a great eye for aesthetics!"

Joey Pompignano Review of The Dark Room Company

"McKinley Wiley of The Dark Room Company is an excellent photographer who has efficiently provided quality images of artists for more than a decade. In 2009, Wiley photographed the front and back covers of my debut book, Defeating Any Given Obstacle. In 2015, his photographs taken of me in spoken word venues and classroom settings were featured on the cover of my second book, Traded Tuesday Nights for Wednesday Mornings, and, respectively. I appreciate the work he has done and will continue to do."
