For Darren, photography isn’t just a hobby that’s turned into a career. Photography has been his passion ever since he inherited a world war II issue Contax II (as used by Robert Capa) as a child. Since then Darren studied the science of photography as part of a media studies degree at University and has gone on to deliver beautiful work for a host of commercial and media clients. His briefs have varied from sports specialisms and still portraits to landscapes and travel reportage. His work, though varied, is always described as exquisite with his keen eye for capturing the essence of the moment, the truth of the person, or the spirit of the place.

Whether in a studio shooting a simple headshot or hanging out of a helicopter capturing a speedboat racing the high seas, every brief is a challenge, an adventure, and one that Darren embarks upon with equal enthusiasm and determination to deliver the best that can possibly be achieved.

Many people can take a 'good' photo these days but a professional photographer tells the story, finds the moment and captures it with an effortless style that suits the shot. Darren does that as well as being a genuinely nice person.

A brilliant photographer who I worked with a while ago in LA on a media project. He had a tricky brief and captured everything and more for our project. I would certainly recommend Darren. A true gent also.

I love Darren’s photography. He’s a genius at capturing the spirit of a moment. My favourite ever picture was taken by him of my husband and I at a party. I just wish I could turn back time and have him take our wedding photos. He’s great fun and a gent too.

I have greatly admired Darren's photographs over the years and much of his work, especially from the Far East, is nothing short of stunning. His vision and timing have helped him capture some amazing moments and I doubt there are many photographers out there with his talent.

Darren has also worked with my old company for Award Ceremonys producing some stunning shots of individuals and captured the ambience of the occasion in a stylish fashion. Most importantly for the production of the magazine, the turn around of the pictures was instant ! Worth every penny xxx

Darren was excellent at getting my young kids to smile and look like they were having fun even though they weren't in the mood! The results were exactly what we wanted, Darren managed to get shots of us all smiling and looking towards the camera at the same time, natural happy family photos, thank you xx

Darren is a consummate professional. He is easy going, with a great sense of humour and blends easily in any situation or company. He’s a craftsman, yet workmanlike, with an Artists eye. His images are excellent. Can not recommend him or his photography enough. Highly recommended.

I’ve known Darren in a round about way for over 10 years and having seen his work, had always had him in the back of my mind as the person I wanted to be my wedding photographer should I ever get married. When he agreed to photograph my wedding 2 years ago I was delighted. The photographs are simply stunning and beyond anything I could have asked for. He has such a gift for capturing the most human of moments. Moments that most would never think to capture which is why his work is so unique. Thank you Darren. You truly are a gifted and special man.

Darren Arthur Photography Q&A

Company Q&A

What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?

There are so many factors that go into taking a ‘great’ photo. Firstly there’s a rational scientific approach. The photographer needs to understand the functionality of the camera and the behavior of light to such a degree that they are able to manipulate them. Secondly, they need to have the imagination and creativity be able to bend all the elements in such a way that they end result is not just a reproduction of the scene but a frozen moment in time that invokes emotion and ultimately understanding from the viewer.

What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?

Who are the images for? What are you looking to express? Examples of the look they'd like to achieve.

What do you love most about your job?

Every day is different and you get to meet some amazing people you otherwise wouldn't.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Who doesn't want to have their business? I believe the client should be the boss and the fewer middlemen in-between the better the end result.

Why should our clients choose you?

I have extensive experience in many photographic fields and I believe work should be fun.
