Associate of the AIPP & Accredited Professional Photographer.
Darren Davis is an Associate & Accredited Professional Photographer, with the Australian Institute Of Professional Photography (www.aipp.com.au), specialising in Portraiture, Illustrative Portraiture & Landscape.
In 2017 & 2018, Darren achieved no fewer than fifteen awarded images, at State, National and International level. These included Four Silver Awards at the Australian Professional Photography Awards. In 2017, his work also received two accreditations from the Trierenberg Super Circuit, held annually – the worlds largest photo art contest.
Darren is a passionate Professional. His love of photography can be seen in many of his fine images. Rather than wanting to ‘take’ photographs, Darren’s passion is to create or ‘make’ photographs.
In his own words, “it is far more rewarding, for me, to create an image, than to rely on a single attribute … “usually the photographer, the model, the stylist or HMUA” …
Photography, according to Darren, is the ability to take a photograph that tells a story, or one that asks many questions. His style is unique, his concepts diverse …. he is a maker of photographs, not just a taker of them ….. Welcome, and enjoy Darren’s works ….
Darren’s views on Photography ….
….. “to me, Photography is an art. If you have to explain what is going on, within a photograph, you haven’t succeeded for my mind.”
… “Membership to the AIPP, as an Accredited Professional Photographer, was a milestone personal achievement for me. To be judged by ones peers, have ones work adjudicated as being ‘of a standard becoming of a professional’, he believes, was the most complimentary and satisfying reward as a professional photographer. “there should always be goals … our peers are our greatest marker and adjudicator … the bar should always be set high” …”
… “Winning Four Silvers at the 2017 Australian Professional Photography Awards was one of the most rewarding experiences of my career thus far” ..
