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!

D'Arcy was hired to take images of the new DoubleTree by Hilton hotel that opened in July 2019. He was an absolute pleasure to work with and I do recommend him to others who might be looking for a professional photographer looking for new images to sell their venue! Flexible, hard-working and a wonderful 'eye' for details are just a few of the attributes that I noted during his time with us in photographing 'The Bevy'. It was also a great benefit to work with a photographer who knew the Hilton standards for imagery which made my job much easier. After the shoot was over, he stayed true to his promised deadline and the end photos were a 'Wow'! Thankful for D'Arcy's services and I will definitely use his services again on a future project!

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 pleased with the quality of the photos and professionalism of his work. As soon as they were put on my web sites, I noticed an uptick in reservations. It was money very well spent.
