"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything"
— Aaron Siskind
Who am I
Hi, my name is Darren and I'm an editorial and published award-winning photographer, based in Beckenham, London — but I'll take any opportunity to travel!
When I'm not taking photos, I love spending time with my family, attending church and watching basketball... Go Pacers!
As a deep thinker, my aim is for my portraits is to make an instant impact! I create passionate images that create a personal connection with each viewer. The direct relationship between the viewer, through the eyes of the model, supported by the atmospheric finish, is designed to draw the observer into a relationship with the person photographed. With deep colours, tones and intense expressions, I want you to experience the same actuality I felt when taking the shot, I want you to experience the very breath of each character captured in front of my lens as if you stand face-to-face.
I would describe my style of work as deep, bold, stylish and clean. My brand and style fit perfectly for portraits, hair shoots, fashion and lifestyle photography.
With all my shoots, I enjoy engaging and having fun with my clients! This way, we obtain a composed atmosphere, which produces excellent results. Many have described me as the most comfortable, relaxed, enjoyable photographer they have ever worked with, but I'll leave that to your judgement.
