It’s been a too long since Gemma and I shot together. We made up for it with a day long shoot in the studio and gym. Gemma can do it all, fitness, beauty, hard, soft, natural, serious, and silly. I want to work with her over and over again. Bar one Hasselblad frame, these are all strobe lit and digitally shot.

Hello. I'm Darren Shaw, a software developer at Net-A-Porter, which I've occasionally written about.

I also play at being a portrait photographer - but it's just a hobby. I love the photographs of Boo George, Norman Jean Roy, Steven Meisel and especially Peter Lindbergh. I've also written about why I like their pictures. I sometimes do test shoots, so if you're interested in working together please get in touch.

Darren, June 2022.
