WELCOME...

...to my world of wedding and portrait photography.


Hi, I'm Darren and I’ve lived in the Southern end of the Lake District all of my life. Surrounded by the natural beauty of the area my photographic interest started with landscape photography where I practised the craft as often as I could. Needless to say my interest grew into portraiture, in particular ‘lifestyle portraiture’ where I would capture the character of the subject in the natural environment with local Bluebell woods being an early favourite. From this the inevitable request to photograph a wedding arrived and although apprehensive at first I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge, the delight in the couple’s face when they first viewed the images made me want to continue down that path. I take great pride in the images I produce and strive to supply only the best quality products to my clients.

My passion for photography continues now specialising in weddings and portraits although I undertake many personal projects that satisfy my desire to be out with my camera. I still enjoy landscape photography and every now and then I attend the odd sporting event to capture some fast moving action. More recently I have been collaborating with models to build their portfolio’s which is great as it allows me the opportunity to practice new techniques that can then be utilised at weddings. If you are a model or aspire to be one and would like some images producing then get in touch via the contact page and we can discuss your requirements.

My approach at weddings is to capture natural candid moments to create a set of fresh and stylish images in both colour and black and white. Assisted on the day by my wife Lesley and son Kai we work as a team to capture those special moments for your album. Following the wedding, all images are individually processed to ensure the best end result and I use top quality wedding albums to present the record of your day.

Based in the small village of Ireleth, I operate mainly in Cumbria and the Lake District but I am available throughout the UK if travel expenses are covered. You will find examples of my work on the pages of this site and if you would like to discuss your requirements for either a wedding or portrait session then please get in touch through the contact page. To check out what we've been up to lately then have a look at the Blog where stories and images from recent events will be posted.

I hope you enjoy browsing the site and please feel free to leave a comment in the guestbook.
