Since 1991, RayKo Photo Center has provided traditional darkroom rentals and educational resources for photographers. In 2002, construction began in an industrial building on 428 Third Street, and the third incarnation of RayKo was opened in fall of 2004. Housed in a spacious 12,000 square foot building, RayKo is the largest public photographic community center west of the Mississippi.

Our commitment to traditional photographic arts remains intact with rentals available in the B&W and color darkrooms. The facility also houses a rental studio, state-of-the-art digital lab, and gallery that features work by emerging and established photographers. Our expansive resources include affordable high-end digital services, Wet Plate Collodion photography, and a darkroom trailer for portable photographic experiences. The diverse educational programs include year-round workshops in historic to contemporary processes, on and off-site tutoring, and a youth education program for schools, libraries, and summer camp. Because of our dedication to traditional and digital processes, RayKo provides an invaluable educational resource for numerous regional and national non-profit groups and schools.
