Since then, Darran’s work has garnered a worldwide reputation and many accolades with international clients that range from Mercedes to Wrigley, HSBC Bank to Sony.
Some of Darran’s favourite work is for charities and the fair trade organisation. He has travelled extensively to many remote regions of the world to photograph growers, artisans and those who are in need of recognition and support from us who can help.
