I have worked with D'Arcy on four separate occasions for hotel and restaurant photography. I would highly recommend D'Arcy for any level of photography needs. He is a complete professional. His detail is incredible. He has made photo shoots less stressful for me as he is prepared in advance, asks the right questions and gently reminds me of the little things I still need to do. His is self sufficient and very comfortable in the hotel and/or restaurant setting. I truly have enjoyed working with him on each of these projects!

I have used D'Arcy twice. First to shoot some properties I manage in Vail and then I thought so highly of his work I flew him to Caye Caulker Belize where I have a Hotel. Both times I was extremely please with the quality of the photos and professionalism of his work. As soon as they were put on my web sites I noticed an up tick in reservations. It was money very well spent.
