Hey there, I’m Darrel Collins. I’m an photographer working and living in Durban. South Africa.
So my career in photography started a few years ago. I was working in my family business which focused on tourism marketing, a decision was made to look into putting together photographic tours for the travel industry. For me this was exciting as I have always had an interest in photography. So I thought well if I’m going to be in charge of this I better have a decent understanding on how to use a DSLR camera and so I did a beginners course and advanced course with the Shaw academy. I immediately fell in love with my new-found skill and the rest is history.
My style is influenced by my passion for fashion and commercial photography, being able to pose my clients and make them look the best they can is so important to me. To be able to capture the passion of the moment, the raw emotion, the love and happiness is something I pride myself on.
I love the creative process, being able to capture a moment and give my artistic feel to it is so rewarding and fun. I love working towards a finished product and to be able to hand it over a to a client and see their reaction has to be the most rewarding feeling ever.
I would love to be a part of your journey and capture those special moments for you, if you’re looking for a photographer who doesn’t just do photography as a job but dose it as a life style and passion then I would love to sit with you over a cup of coffee and see how I can make your day whether it be a wedding or a family shoot relaxed and fun.
