"Darren is one of the best photographers I have ever worked with. He has such a passion for photography and, unlike other headshot photographers, he spends time in order to get photos you are happy with. If you are considering getting headshots done, you'd be silly not to book with Darren!"

From his expertise and delivery he must be one of the most professional photographers I have come across so far in my career in the performance industry. My pictures look incredible  I look forward to using using them for future castings. If you're a dancer or performer you should book Darren - he understands our industry and will work hard to get you the images you need."

"As actors we always need to keep our head shots up to date. When I hired Darren I didn't know what to expect. But I have to say he made me feel so comfortable and gave me such great direction that i was able to give my best performance and got some of my best head shots to date. Darren gave me some ideas and that really helped me give a range of looks to the camera. I would certainly book up again soon and would highly recommend Darren for your head shots. I have also landed more auditions since having these head shots!"

"After searching for a headshot photographer for a while now, I was delighted to be recommended to go to Darren. Not only are his images a cut above those I'd seen whilst researching, his attention to my needs and complete care and professional demeanour made it a very pleasurable session throughout. He is also incredible value for money offering a few hours shooting with a range of chosen outfits that means you never feel rushed and are left confident you are walking away with a range of images  that show different looks ad variations on your persona. The fact that he's a lovely guy too makes it the perfect experience and solution to your headshot needs".
