If the supplied "dark image" was any brighter he would blow out the highlights.

Got me. You may be right, based on the bright metal parts and assuming one wants to preserve detail there. But note the OP is bringing up the overall exposure.

Maybe what is needed is a curves adjustment to bring up the mid tones rather than the overall exposure change. Or better yet, improved lighting to get the subject contrast under control.
