Darren Olson

Darren became interested in photography during a six-month trip to Africa in 1996. It was there he fell in love with the process of communicating visually. He spent the following years honing his skills in commercial studios, photojournalism and in 1999 attended the Rocky Mountain School of Photography. In 2000, Darren moved to Bend, Oregon where he worked with National Geographic published photographer, Ric Ergenbright. Some of Darren’s images are published in Ric’s book, “Think About These Things”. 

The last five years have been filled with many trips to Europe that has evolved into a passion of sharing the beauty, uniqueness and intricate detail of Italy. Today, Darren focuses on creating limited edition museum quality photographs of this wonderful and timeless country. 

“I strive to go beyond Italian photographs that merely document a location to images that allow the viewer to subjectively feel and experience a scene (through light, texture, pattern, color and motion) as I did. My goal is to create a New Vision of the Old World”.
