Hi, I’m Darren. I have a B.F.A. in photography from the Kansas City Art Institute. Sounds fancy doesn’t it? It wasn’t, but it was full of creative people. Myself being one of them. I’ve worked at Barash for 10 years as a photographer and graphic designer and grew up here in the Keystone State, in a small town called Roaring Spring. It really has a spring, it just doesn’t roar — but the water is delicious. I love taking portraits of things like people, food and the occasional animal, but that rarely happens. The part about the animal. I was dead serious about the people and food part. When I’m not shooting I’m probably doing one of the following: cooking, skiing, rock climbing, hunting, fishing, mountain biking, hiking or wild food foraging … sure beats watching TV.
