Your Special Memories

Darren Simons

Freelance Photographer

A photography service tailored to what you want or need

I offer a range of photography-related services according to your needs. You choose what suits you best so that you capture that special memory or gain the skills to do it yourself. My main experience is portraits, wildlife, abstract and travel genres. I have a strong interest in the digital darkroom covering tweaking the photos in a photo editor, getting the best possible printed results, and making it all come alive on a website. Some of my own photos can be seen at my other website - I am in the process of updating it though.

Special occasion photography

Engagements, weddings, bar mitzvahs, christenings, family gatherings... tell me what you are looking for and I will endeavour to record the special day in a way to help you look back with fond memories. Combining formal and informal shots is the key here and I offer a range of services covering the photography itself as well as any dark room processing to get the best results.

Real life photos

The really special memories are often those at home - children growing up, pets, those little glimpses of everyday life we simply don't keep any record of. I can come to your home or to a venue (a park perhaps) and just click away at you and your family being yourselves. Whether you just want a bunch of snaps taken over 30 minutes or more posed photos to show that particular moment in time, the choice is yours.

Back to school

I offer bespoke introductions and training on both photography and the digital dark room aspects of it all. I'll help you get past the apparent challenges which exist there, but all the time focussing on how to keep and record those special memories. Whether it's a one-to-one introduction, some specific help, or something to help you and your friends learn something new... let me know and I'll see if I can help.

Please contact me to find out how I can help your specific photographic needs.

Status: Taking on new clients

I am currently available for work covering family portraits (occasions or informal) and other events or specific projects.

I also offer workshops at your home for small groups to learn the main skills needed to get great photos and to get the best results from them using Photoshop or other applications.

I will happily travel to meet and discuss your requirements. Please contact me via the Contact page to find out more.
