To me, there's two parts to photographing someone: a great fun experience full of laughter in comfortable surroundings with people that mean the most to us, followed by long-lasting memories to cherish for years to come.

I am based in Lincolnshire, in the beautiful Georgian market town of Louth on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds.  Photography has been my passion for many years.  My photography journey began at a very young age when I received my first camera as a gift.  I have always loved taking photos and have traditionally been 'the one with the camera' whenever I've been anywhere with my family.  From people around me, the comment has always been the same: "You take the pictures because they're always better than ours."

A website without fantastic photography just doesn’t cut it now. The same applies to social media campaigns. After researching current trends; Darren quickly understood what I wanted, was able to interpret what I’d noted and created a bank of images for me that reflect the brand I wish to create. Finding someone like Darren is that important first stage ...

My photography has taken me to various locations to shoot weddings, family occasions and group sessions.  I am happy to travel to capture the moments in your life which are most important to you.  As well as having the pleasure to work with my clients to create images that are tailored to their requirements for their wedding, naming ceremonies and family photoshoots; I also have a wealth of experience in other areas of photography.  My clients include businesses, individuals and organisations.  I have photographed theatrical and dance performances, actor headshots, publicity images and formal groupings for clubs and societies.

Everyone has a unique story.  When I head out with my camera bag in my hand, my main aim to help my client tell their story.  There is nothing more fulfilling to me than to give someone a peak at the images of their photoshoot and read their immediate reactions, followed by having the satisfaction of seeing their faces in person when they see their finished photographs.  I always work with my clients to find out what they're looking for from their photographic experience.  Sometimes they have a particular 'look' in mind.  Sometimes they need images for a certain use.  Whatever the need for their images, I pride myself in working closely with them to create photographs that tell a story ... from pre-wedding photoshoots, to arrivals of newborns to photo sessions involving all generations of the family.

In an age when almost everyone has a smartphone and when great-quality cameras are becoming more and more affordable; everyone feels like they're a photographer.  Having good equipment is fine ... it's knowing how to get the best out of it that counts.  Rest assured, you can have beautiful timeless images to enjoy and share for years.  Let your search end here and begin your photographic story with me.
