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 pursuing my passion as my career choice. I am 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 and business through countless long hours of trial and error.

My primary focus is Fine Art Landscape imagery and Fine Art Portraits, while at the same time 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.
