Beyond the creative and innovative style, one of Dara's greatest talents is to get his clients to relax and enjoy the experience.

His creative background combined with years of travel photography, shooting, and working with a vast array of locations, personalities, celebrities, and subjects are all experiences he brings to a shoot. Dara is a perfectionist, constantly motivated by ever changing scenarios and people, and always puts his clients first.

Dara and his team pride themselves on pushing the boundaries, going far beyond the generic and constantly innovating within photography to provide something fresh and unique for our clients.
