Darren Bowen Photography Interviewed on FOX46

Darren Bowen Photography is showcasing Photography at Rush Espresso Cafe. Page Fehling and Jason Harper of FOX46 sit down with the photographer responsible for all of the fine art photography​ adorning the walls of Rush Espresso Cafe in Ballantyne during Good Day Charlotte’s Free Coffee Friday.

Lachlan Wills

I met Lachlan at Rush espresso; charming bloke and seemed interested in having the opportunity to work with me and express his amazing presence and love of life on camera. As a television presenter working around the globe it was my pleasure to land the chance to go play in some mud with big diggers and get the very best out of Lachlan and as he says himself – magnify and amplify the life inside the subject. A lovely bloke with the most distinctive Aussie accent!

Israel Gore

Working with Israel was somewhat unique, clearly, a passion for music and visuals and it was clear that he was breathing ideas. With my passion for imagery, abstraction and those moments that only occur once in a lifetime, I proudly present what I believe to be one of the best creative portrait photography sessions of the 2018 season. Let me introduce Israel Gore, a musician with immense talent and a style that could easily be found from the 1950’s.

Your portrait session will be completely customized to your vision. I think the most beautiful portraits are taken in a fun relaxed atmosphere! We work together on your session from beginning to end! We can meet for coffee, or chat on the phone to discuss the perfect location(s), outfits, props, and whatever else comes to mind!

“My Wildest Dreams Brought to Life!”

"Darren did such an amazing job with my bridal portraits. He was able to create such magical memories with my photos, that I cannot thank him enough for. He was also such a pleasure to work with, making the environment relaxing and fun! If you are looking for a unique photographer, I hope you use Darren. He will bring your wildest dreams to life in a single photo!"

- Macy Barnhill

“Professional & Brilliant!”

"Darren Bowen went above and beyond our expectations for our daughter’s Senior pictures. Perfect balance of professional and fun and friendly. Took time to really get to know our girl and her personality before choosing the perfect (and not your average, run of the mill) setting for the photos. "

- Regan Haggerty

“Magnify and Amplify Life!”

"Darren is a wonderfully intuitive artist, with an ability to magnify and amplify the life inside his subject. He is a wonderful person who makes it very fun and enjoyable to share his creative space and his company. I highly recommend Darren for any kind of photo shoot."

- Lachlan Wills

"An Eye for Unique Angles!"

"It was amazing to say the least. Darren was so patient and kind. It was a 90 degree day but he never complained! Darren has an eye for unique angles and knows every “cool spot” around the Charlotte area and beyond. He captured my daughter Maddie to a T! I will recommend him to anyone! "

- Jennifer Pawling McConachy

Darren Bowen Photography

My photography captures a moment in time - a split-second that remains locked in time often abstracted and completely random. It is in these moments I see potential element, shape, abstraction, and life in colour, inspiration before the moment fades to grey into the past disappearing forever.
