"Darrell was terrific to work with. He was friendly, but efficient, flexible, but with high standards for every shot. From a short session, I've ended up with portraits that will be of great use for me professionally, but will also sit on the mantelpiece at home among the treasured family
photos." -- Gillen D'Arcy Wood
