Darin has been making movies for over 20 years. While he studied design & photography at The Academy of Art in San Francisco and film theory & cinematography at the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU, he dropped out of school after a few years to learn in the field by actually making films.
Exposed to a wide variety of processes and styles across multiple disciplines, Darin’s eclectic work experience with many talented cinematographers and directors informs his vision now as a DP. Specializing in working with natural light, Darin’s focus is creating powerful imagery using photography that’s hidden in the story rather than presented upfront. His recent work includes AGE OF SUMMER, BANANA SPLIT, and the upcoming streaming series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. RUN HIDE FIGHT is his sixth feature film as a Director of Photography.
Darin lives in Portland, Oregon with his partner Christina and their two kids Milo & Antigone.
