Darren has been captivated by the art of photography since his youth. Similarly, his passion for nature and the outdoors has further inspired most of his work. Darren can often be seen searching for the closest waterfall to shoot...or jump off of.
Born and raised in Vancouver, Darren has spent the majority of his life residing in beautiful British Columbia, with the exception of a three year stint in Jasper, Alberta. This tenure in the Rockies allowed him to hone his skills further in one of the world’s most stunning regions. While in Jasper, Darren started Focus On The Rockies, a photography workshop that brought world-class photographers together to instruct novice and intermediate participants on improving their photography skills. Now in its fourth year Focus On The Rockies has been a tremendous success, bringing such talent together as Daryl Benson, John Marriott, Darwin Wiggett, Mike Grandmaison, Kelly Funk and Mark and Leslie Degner.
Nearly three years on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia provided Darren with a wealth of captivating west coast imagery. Now located in the beautiful North Okanagan/Shuswap region, Darren continues to showcase the amazing people and places of British Columbia.
Along with good friend Kelly Funk, Darren leads experiential instructional photography workshops throughout the year with Discover BC Photo Tours (please link that text to www.bcphototours.com).
Darren’s work has been featured in many tourism-based marketing pieces and websites. Clients include Marmot Basin, Tourism Jasper, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, Whistler’s Inn, Jasper Inn, Tourism Powell River and Sunshine Coast Tourism.
