Darren began taking photographs in the early 1980’s and printing in a makeshift darkroom at home. He went onto study photography, firstly on an art and design foundation course, before graduating with a degree in Photographic Studies in 1992 and an MSc in Film Production in 1994. 

Photographing both landscape and portraiture using digital and large format film, his images are characterised by a high level of compositional and technical accomplishment.  Based in Morocco, Darren explores the region for project related work.

Darren first visited Morocco in 1991 to make a student film and take photographs in the Anti-Atlas Mountains. He returned in 1993 again for a student project, this time to Essaouira. During the 1990’s he made several visits to the town, making a documentary on an Englishwoman’s adventure with Gnawa music. 

Darren is also qualified lecturer with a Postgraduate Diploma in Education and has several years experience planning and delivering courses in the UK.  He is a passionate photographic educator, collaborating with Swiss Photo Club since 2022.
