Photo by Heather Darko
I was born and raised in WA State. I live in Everett, WA with my wife Heather and our two dogs - Einstein the Pug and Zoey the Chiweenie.
I grew up racing go-karts and then mini-stock at Evergreen Speedway. After I hung up my helmet, I went to Cornish College of The Arts and graduated with a BFA focusing in Oil Painting & (film) Photography.
There’s a time and a place for posed family portraits, and stylized shoots, but my true passion for photography is reflected in the heart of the action. I’m not going to tell you where to place your hand in a shot, but I will stand 20 feet away with a zoom lens and capture the true essence of you in your most natural state.
I typically shoot with a Nikon DSLR, but I also use Sony mirrorless system as well. You can learn more about my photo kit and capabilities at https://kit.com/DonnaDarko/photo-kit.
If you’re interested in working together send me a message. I’d love to hear from you.
