About me

You’re here, and you’d like to know about me, and i’m grateful for that interest. If you’re looking for the short and skinny of it: i’m a professionally trained photographer & videographer/DP. I’ve been doing this professionally for 10 years, and unprofessionally much longer than that. My absolute passion is creating beautiful images.

My work has spanned many genres & types, everything from documentaries, to narrative films, to corporate events, to interviews, to reality pilots. And more recently, to promos for phone apps & kickstarter projects.

When people ask me where/when i started in video, i enjoy telling them that my beginnings started in a rather silly way. You see, my friends in high school were into backyard wrestling. I wasn’t particularly into it, but that didn’t stop them from throwing me into the mix and asking me to hold the video camera. I don’t recall much of the shooting part, but i still have the first piece i ever edited from it. I cut it on Premiere 4.0, and from there it just seemed to keep going.  By sophomore year in college, i choose film production as my major

My beginnings in photography were at a younger age, and i have fond memories of using the darkroom and enlargers as far back as middle school. It’s odd to think back and realize that i’ve been taking photography courses through every step of my general education.

Another passion/project of mine is creating DIY/Tutorials/Reviews. You can view all that jazz from the links on the left.

Please feel free to reach out and say hello, i’m always up for interesting discussion, expedition, or helping out.

    Hi Darren,

    I am myself a photo and video enthu. I found on a blog, wondering if you would be interested shooting my, indian engagment ceremony on July 10th from 11am to 3pm. I would like to have raw data as well as a highlight video of the event.

    Please let me know if you would be interested.
