Freelance Photographer | Visual Artist


- Past, present, and future projects.



For the past few years I have worked  with the non-profit organization, Healthy Start For Mom & Me whose goal is to provide expecting and new parents the information and resources to give them and their babies the healthiest start possible. I took photos of many of the families at many of their group sessions around Winnipeg. I also had the chance to create 6 videos for them ranging from interviews, a walk-through of what a day at the group looks like, to cooking videos. It has been an eye-opening experience to see the amazing impact this program had on individuals and communities as a whole.

“Darnell worked with our non-profit organization. He was both professional and approachable with families and because of this, he captured beautiful images that the families will treasure for years to come.”

Extra-Ordinary: Stories of Manitobans with Down Syndrome

Author: Jordan Power

Author: Jordan Power

I was honored when Jordan Power had asked me to shoot the photos for his book, "Extra-Ordinary: Stories of Mantiobans with Down Syndrome". It was a privilege meeting and photographing these unique and awesome individuals. 

Jordan had written this book to present a real, honest perspective on people with Down Syndrome. From interviewing the parents of children with Down Syndrome, to adults with Down Syndrome who are attending University and working (sometimes multiple jobs), it shows that these individuals can, and do, live ordinary lives; striving to reach their goals and aspirations like everybody else.
And one of the best parts about Jordan's project is that 100% of the proceeds of the books sales were donated to the Manitoba Down Syndrome Society.

When the World Was Flat
(Independent Film)

Actor/Writer: Jonathan Lawrenece

Actor/Writer: Jonathan Lawrenece

In 2013 I worked with local actor and director, Jonathan Lawrence, to be the editor of his first full length film, "When the World Was Flat." I have had video editing experience in the past, but this was the first time working on a full length film. I embraced the challenge, and with the efforts of the small, but extremely talented team, we were able to create a dramatic and touching final piece. One that has won numerous awards and accolaids.
