At my core

I believe that audio visual communication is the most effective medium by which information can be conveyed.

In the right hands

This power can do profound good. I enjoy empowering people so that they may transmit their message more clearly and to the right audience by using light, movement, contrast, sound, colour, language and culture.

Testimonials

  • A sure-fire talent with an exhaustive knowledge on camera and light, Darren lit and shot Electric Faces to follow the look of initial concept art. He is widely respected as one of the best and hardest working professionals within the Glasgow film scene. Having someone behind the camera with as much technical knowledge and open-minded curiosity as Darren is incredibly liberating for any director. Taking advantage of the latest industry software, his work as cinematographer continues into the final edit where he retains control of the film colour grade.
