Darren Smith – Specialised Portrait Photographer based on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.

Darren owns and operates a specialised portrait studio Fotoflair Photography, with his wife Danette.

2014 marks their fifth year in business, which has seen the business grow from predominately family and wedding portraiture, into a studio catering to commercial and fine art portraiture.

Darren considers himself a bit of a late bloomer to the photography world, after only picking up his first DSLR in 2008.

At the time I was doing wedding videography and saw the DSLR as an extension to my video work, before long I fell in love with the medium and focused solely on photography.

I enjoy the challenge of creating a story with a single frame. Light plays a huge part in my work to create mood and depth to an image, and I love working with strobes to achieve my vision.

Lately a lot of Darren’s work has focused around professional and semi-professional athletes, but recent work includes working with jewelry designers, theater companies, musicians, real estate, professional owl handlers, families, and pets.

What Darren loves about the photography business is that every day can be a new adventure, and they are always meeting new and interesting people.
