With a career as an award winning Creative Director behind me, I have a wealth of experience in Advertising & Photography. Over the last 2 years my passion for photography has grown and my body of work, whilst immature in time, has been recognised at Australian & International photography award shows and competitions.
Success includes a top 20 finalist in the Australia Day ‘Living Australian’ 2010 photography competition as well as winning the Peoples Choice award, finalist in the international 2011 PBN ‘Photography Book Now’ travel photography book category, a finalist in the Sydney International Food Festival ‘Shoot the Chef’ competition, selected as an Australian winner in the 2011 ‘Corbis Creatives Behind the Lens’ competition as well as becoming an overall Top 10 regional winner.
My images have been published in Australian Traveller Magazine, Cumberland Newspapers, as well as various blogs and websites, and have also appeared in advertising campaigns for Fairfax Media (Sunday Telegraph & The Sydney Morning Herald Weekender Package) and The Australian Red Cross Blood Service.
With an eye for detail and composition, thanks to my background in art and design, my images are graphic in nature and always have maximum visual impact.
Specialising in travel, lifestyle & documentary photography, my images portray true slices of life.
Darren is also the Director/photographer for two travel photography websites, and they can be found at: www.newyorkcitypics.net & www.miamicitypics.net
All pics can be purchased as prints, cards & canvases and all can be licensed for use through the websites. Please contact me for information regarding licensing via both websites.
