What my clients are saying..

“So many great and memorable shots it was hard to pick the best for our album! Everybody thinks of the family photos and the ceremony (which Darren captured perfectly) but he also takes the time to also capture the other memories – the smaller things – that are often overlooked but matter so much in building the overall picture of the event. Besides this he is friendly and a pleasure to have around. Would absolutely hire him again”.

“My husband and I cannot thank Darren enough for being our wedding photographer. Our walls at home are covered in his beautiful images of our special day.  His personal approach made us feel comfortable, and listened too when it came to the style of images we were after.  He has captured life long memories for us.  We are so grateful. Thank you Darren. You are an amazing photographer with a great eye”.

Post Production Example

I’ve spent many years as a digital artist beautifying images of one sort or another.   I use licensed versions of Adobe Lightroom CC and Photoshop CC.

Original Image

This image is straight out of camera from a studio shoot with no post production used.

Advanced Retouch

This image incorporates all the basics post production techniques plus all other tools at my disposal – paint brush, curves and frequency separation.

Advanced B&W

This image is everything thus far with the added conversion to black and white and tone tweaks.

About Me

I  started my creative carear as a photographer’s apprentice in the late eighties in Jersey, Channel Islands, in the days before digital cameras and Photoshop. Hours and days spent either in darkrooms or waiting for your images to come back from the labs.



More about me

My desire to seek advancement took me to foreign lands in new and challenging career paths.  During my university years, I worked as a Light Technician and a Camera Operator, as well as other roles. I filmed live games of American college football, worked on news broadcasts and also helped film the first ever Q &A for Star Trek Voyager.

I’ve successfully completed a Master of Arts degree in Animation and Special Effects at Bournemouth University, a Bachelor of Science degree in Media Systems at Kansas State and Sunderland Universities, and a Diploma in Media at college.

What pursued was a sixteen year career as a Digital Artist,  I have worked around the world for world renown companies like Electronic Arts (EA), Rockstar and 2K, on massive  franchises including Bioshock, Grand Theft Auto (GTA) and Borderlands.
