"I haven't laughed so hard, felt so comfortable and learned so much about myself in a long time. Darius is a gifted photographer but also, he's just a straight up amazing person, which makes it easy to connect with him and the camera.
Thanks brother, loved the session!"
- Dan Hashemi
“Never in my life have I felt so comfortable in front of a camera or so blown away by the images that were captured. I wanted to do the shoot for my birthday - my 39th birthday - and wanted to capture how I show up in the world with the strength and wisdom I've gathered in life so far. The photos show that and so much more, and it was all due to the fantastic experience that Darius created and allowed me to create with him.
Darius didn't just start shooting, he walked me through the whole process, explained techniques and angles - he basically gave me a little class in how to be a model, it was extraordinary. The shoot was so relaxing and so much fun that I was disappointed when it was time to stop! I wanted to keep trying new things and taking more pictures! I can't wait to come back next year and do a shoot for my 40th birthday!"

"Darius is great - a lot of attention to detail and capturing the personal, human element of portraits. Appreciate your thought and input, and always love your openness to feedback!"
- Gloria Chik
"Darius is a true artist. He loves his craft, pays attention to the details and has a heart of gold. It was fun shooting with him!"

"Two words: next level. Darius isn't a photographer, he is a psychedelic-sherpa-shaman with a very expensive camera and years of filming experience. Our 3hr session was really a guided meditation that brought me so much awareness around my thoughts and physical patterns (on & off camera). I intend on visiting him once a year.
Darius, have you thought of a 10-year membership plan?"
- Majid Hashemi
“Darius was an incredible photographer to work with. Easy going, let me pick my play list :) and killed it on the lighting front. I'm stoked to have these portrait images in my back pocket for media requests and head shot asks.
Thanks so much, D and I'd 100% book with you again.”
