About Darran Chaisson

I have been enthralled with photography for as long as I can remember. I still remember saving up to go out and buy film for my first camera. It's unfortunate I didn't have the money at the time to get them developed, who knows what was on those early film rolls.

 Fast-forwarding many years, I had a time in front of the lens as a sports model for some great names such as Mike Tittel and Kevin Annala, but found I was more satisfied being behind the camera looking out. 

 Now I am living on Vancouver Island with my lovely wife, and our dog Teama. We are fortunate to be living in an area that never ceases to amaze me with the brilliance, liveliness, and diversity that is the West Coast of Canada's Rain Forest. 

 I am a self taught photographer and photo editor/retoucher. I have learned the ins and outs of this craft through countless long hours of trial and error. I am currently being mentored by a Master Photographer (designated by MPIO) to follow in his footsteps and earn my title of Master Photographer.

 My primary focus is Fine Art Landscape imagery with work branching into portrait and wedding photography. All while continuing to work on creative conceptualization for both decoration and for client directed commission work.

 I am continually on the look out for new projects, and am always willing to work with others to make your decorating or project ideas come to fruition.
