About Darwin

I could give you a giant bio and artist statment but who really cares?

The short version is this: I love to take photos and have been doing so for over 25 years – it is a great job and a wonderful lifestyle. So far it is the best work I have come across for my personality (unless I figure out how to get paid to eat pizza and drink beer). Recently I have partnered with my life and work mate, Samantha and we have created oopoomoo where we tell our stories of the quest for the happy life. Go on over and check it out!

If you want to see me in action doing what I do see this video – you’ll see just how professional I am!

Cheers!
Darwin


A Note on Photography Equipment

The most common question I get about my photography is “What kind of camera do you use?” This question still throws me off-guard – I suppose it is like asking Rembrandt or Picaso what kind of paint brush they used, or asking Jimmy Page or Carlos Santana what kind of guitar they use. I am pretty sure that Jimmy Page still plays the same way whether he uses a Fender or a Martin or an Epiphone.

The one thing I do know is that if I shoot with a 4×5, a medium format film camera, a point-n-shoot digital or film camera, or a high end DSLR that my photos still end up all looking the same. I have not yet found a camera that improves my photography!! D’oh! Seems that the person behind the lens really has a lot to do with what the camera does – go figure eh?
