A Chance Meeting, A Watch Brand & Meeting An NBA Star…

It’s funny how life plays out sometimes and how, by being open and your natural self, opportunities present themselves…

On this occasion, it was the last day of a recent shoot trip to Monaco.  I was doing my last look around before heading to the airport and returning the rental car.  I grabbed a coffee and found the only seat that could’ve been available next to a lady who had her bag on it. She kindly moved it and we got talking immediately – A brand publicist in a little state of distress as her photographer had cancelled last minute for a shoot with a watch brand who was ready to go with a celeb en route…

…Darren to the rescue.

We arrive at this amazing hotel, she shows me where the shoot/meeting would take place and I did what I do to scope out nice places to shoot.  10mins later, in walks one of the NBA’s best Defenders, Rudy Gobert! OMG!

So, in as Adhoc a fashion as anything can possibly get, we did the lifestyle shoot and they got their media release about the Celeb and the brand’s partnership – here’s a sneak peek:

Coming Soon: Photos and updates from this Quarter…

We have been (thankfully) so busy lately that I haven’t had the chance to sit down, share and celebrate the work we’ve done this quarter. So, over the next week, I will pull to get some of the highlights from the diverse types of events we’ve been involved with.

We’re talking Private Parties, Weddings, Corporate Events, BBQ’s, Highlight Reels as well as some Onsite Event Production Management for a charity that, as the Director of DRGNFLY Productions, has captured my heart and I’m motivated to do more work with…

As always, massive thanks to our clients, my team of creatives and our supporters, and please stay tuned for this next update 🙂

Progress & Gratitude

As with all businesses, you lay milestones at every key growth point and celebrate still being in business…

That is the case here as in January we rebranded to DRGNFLY Productions with a sexy new log, we became an LTD, we’ve grown our relationships with some key freelance creatives and have had our biggest team onsite recently for a conference.  If that wasn’t fabulous enough, we’ve been involved with such a variety of different jobs and have just produced our first highlight video with 2 more in production for our clients – You can see this here or at the bottom of this post.

Wow, huh?!

As the Director/owner and developing this from a freelancer transitioning from his previous career, I have so much gratitude every day to be doing something I absolutely love.  There are so many people out who don’t take chances to risk it all to be happy, however, I’m not going to stand here and say (or sit and type) that it was an easy choice because frankly it wasn’t. Certain events happened that were out of my control at the time and if they hadn’t there is a good chance I’d still be doing what I was doing before and not feeling fulfilled. Whoa, now that is an even scarier thought!

Transitions like this don’t happen by yourself and I’m not giving any motivational speeches but literally does take a village to do anything these days if you want it bad enough. I put myself out there and I like to believe that people saw and continue to see how driven and passionate I am about what I do. It is to those who have been on, assured, assisted, enhanced and/or guide me along my journey that I have to thank (family, friends, clients and mentors) most of which know who you are already. But, for my readers, please stop by my Instagram to see who these wonderful folks are in my recent posts 🙂 Oh and don’t forget to follow us all – we follow back 😉

I’ll leave it there for now, so please enjoy this first highlight video…

Streetwear shooting for Mucky Swagger with BAME Models, Moeed.

This shoot was to create more Streetwear/Urban Fashion assets for the upcoming launch of Mucky Swagger’s website.

The guys have sent us a few sneak peek screenshots of the site and it is coming together nicely (well-done guys) and, if you don’t mind me saying, the images are really working for them.
