My name is Darren and I shoot people.
have always been passionate about photography and within the past ten
years or so, when I have pointed my camera, it has inevitably
been towards someone.
In my life, I have been lucky to see
some amazing things. I have seen the beauty of the Taj Mahal, but
what I most remember about India is walking the streets of
Varanasi late at night and spontaneously being pulled into a local
wedding, plied with food, drinks and made a welcome part of a couple's
biggest day for no reason other than they wanted to share their
happiness with a friendly, inquisitive stranger.
been held in awe of the Temples of Angkor, Cambodia. The best part of
that was the time my scooter got a flat and while waiting for my driver
to return from repairs, I was pulled into a tiny village in the middle
of the Angkor complex; just four bamboo homes and one extended family.
I spoke no Khmer and they spoke no English, but it was 45 minutes of
amazing fellowship and genuine fun, aided in part by three of the
sweetest kids imaginable.
By now, it is a cliché
to say that people the world over are the same. They care about
friends, they care about family and they are eager to learn and
befriend about those who are different from them. No matter how clichéd that might be, I can tell you firsthand that it is true.
I shoot people, because it is people who make this world so interesting.
I have taken that passion for people, married it with my passion for
photography and I am making myself available to capture the times and
the people that are important to you. Let me help you by capturing the
most important things in your life; your memories. Whether it is a
corporate event, family gathering, school function, portrait session or
any other time that is important to you, I want to be there to help you
capture the times of your life.
