"Darin uses his eyes, but his heart is the real camera. I have hired Darin both for my own professional shots and for my public events. He brings equal parts technical awareness and artistic sensitivity to every moment he captures. I strongly recommend you entrust your needs to his vision".
Charles Bloom, Composer-Lyricist
Working with Darin is a joy. He has an innate ability to put you at ease. And, his gifts for shooting with natural light are considerable. It was a pleasure to spend a rewarding and interactive afternoon with him. The end result provided me with an exceptional amount of excellent representation to choose from. I highly recommend him.
-John Alban Coughlan, actor, playwright
I have Darin to thank for some of the best headshots ever taken of me-- and I am NOT an easy subject. I fought him every step of the way... and he still got something great.
-Jill Ahrold, Producer at WAMU 88.5, Imagine Me, Inc.
Darin, your work is fresh and natural ...a genuine contrast to all the posed and stiff photography we see so much of...you're able to "bring out the person" genuinely and artistically capture fleeting moods...thanks....
-"Marty Clarke" Marlene Thorn Taber, actor, director, professor
Darin Chumbley is a fantastic photographer who can capture the "truth" in his photos and tell a story in a simple shot.
-Chadwick Vogel, actor, singer
Darin was the photographer for a Dancers Responding to AIDS cocktail party. His shots captured the vitality and essence of the evening’s event.
Darin’s photography puts you right in the center of the action, making you feel less like a spectator and more of a participant.
-Christopher F. Davis, Producer, Dancers Responding to AIDS, BCEFA
I've been talking up Darin and his photography ever since he did my headshots... he makes you feel so comfortable that the pictures come out so naturally on their own. It was the most effortless photo shoot I ever had, and the best pictures by far that I have ever had. I am going back to him again for more headshots without a question, and I have been telling everyone to go to Darin for their pictures, too.
