Fine Art Photography

About Us

The magic of photography is not lost.

Darkroom Artist features the fine art photography of Shannon and Colleen Graham, specialists in traditional black and white film photography, often with an experimental, contemporary art twist. The original silver gelatin prints are created in the darkroom at S&C Design Studios.


The vision is one thing and the technique is another.


The physical process and chemical reaction of producing silver gelatin prints are among the most fascinating transformations that a person can witness. It is at that moment—as the latent image slowly appears in the developer tray—when the true magic in photography comes to life. That is the point in which you know that every step you have taken along the way, every detail that you picked at, and every bit of perfection that you demanded was not in vain. 


We invite you to step into our world, one where form, contrast, and light are more important than subject.


Our artwork reflects decades of experience in the medium and a true passion for keeping its traditional techniques alive. Of course, once you learn all the rules, it's time to break them! That is where many of the pieces take a fascinating turn. The more avante garde pieces have been described as "simply captivating," "rustic industrial," and "moody" by collectors.
