“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! "

Once a licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society told me:


Professional photographers are taught for years in photographic science to have what you have Darren, and you don't even know you have it!

Amazing Photography

I have found myself creating the most amazing and stunning photography and sometimes I have no idea from where it comes; I just use​​ the most basic of photography equipment, it's incredible.
Some have said to me that the sweetest and most beautiful sounds created from a second-hand guitar are not from the hands of a musician but from the passion and creativity​ of an Artist​.

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.
