Photography is life…

Portraits in Kent is a family run independent photography business, with a studio in Sittingbourne and a smaller studio in Sheerness, with an award-winning photographer using the latest in photographic technology.

Photography is life, it is a moment in time that will never happen again but will be captured in a format that makes it easier to remember forever. That is what our work is all about, sharing and capturing those special moments with you. Do you remember your baby’s first birthday, the first word they spoke, the first step they took or even the first exam they passed?

We will be there for you and your family throughout your whole life, birthdays, celebrations and marriage. Photography is about having fun, and we aim in every session to have fun and show your true character.

Believing in quality over quantity the imagery we capture is presented using high quality materials to last a lifetime. With years of experience, research and a commitment to provide the best life can give…
Photography is life!

Meet Your Photographer

ARPS, AMPA, Ba(Hons)

A Kent based photographer, who loves to dive, fish & travel.

Darren has a passion for life and capturing those special moments it brings. Having worked in the industry since 2003 Darren has received many awards for his work including South East Commercial Master Photographer of the Year. Darren has travelled all across the globe for photographic work to exotic places such as Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Malta, and Mexico.

Darren has received recognition for his work and distinctions from The Royal Photographic Society and The Master Photographers Association of which he is currently an Associate of both. His experience is varied as his love for photography has seen him work aboard Cruise Ships, run a Studio in Erith, photograph cars for magazines such as Classic Ford and Street Machine, photograph products for L.K Bennett and Accessorize and has been featured in Vogue as a Hot Shot Photographer.

Many evenings are spent giving back to the community, advising amateur photographers on how to improve their imagery, judging photographic competitions and giving talks. It brings as much joy to share these stories as it does to capture them. Recently Darren was invited to give 2 days of lectures and demonstrations alongside Top Gear photographer Rod Fountain for Canon UK and Porsche Club GB.

Darren lives in Sheerness, Kent with his beautiful fiancee Dora who he has been with for nearly 8 years and will be married to on the 10th April 2019. They live there together with their pet cat Daisy who is a grey tabby and their pet dog Dusty who is a Siberian Husky. Darren’s hobbies include Tropical Aquaria, Diving and Fishing… yes that is a lot of fishy business. Did you notice something else? All their names start with the letter “D” and have two syllables.

None of this would have been possible without the help and support of Darrens’ better half Dora, she is the rock to it all and without her none of this would have been possible.
