Hi, I'm Darren.
I generally like talking less about my personal accomplishments and education and just let my art speak for itself. But if you've made it this far on my site you obviously would like to know more.
I started my journey in photography in January 2009 when I bought my first DSLR camera on a whim before before a spontaneous trip up to a frozen Utah with some friends of mine. That trip changed my life. I was hooked on image making.
I have been doing photography professionally since 2010. Most of my formal education has taken place at Mt Sac and their wonderful photography program. I graduated from Cal Baptist University in 2020 with a Bachelors in Digital Media and Design.
Since 2015 I have worked full time in the corporate sector focusing on creative product and lifestyle work.
I am an Artist. Most are, in their own way, but I like the title. Always growing . Always discovering. Never slowing down. This is who I am.
My deepest passion in photography is people. Weddings, events and portraiture have been the staple of my business. However I have more than enough studio and environmental photography experience to capture just about anything you might need pictures of.
I truly hope you enjoy my work as you browse my portfolio. If you have any questions or you are ready to work with me, please reach out to me. I am happy to chat via text, phone or any of the social medias. I look forward to us working together soon!
