Welcome! I’m Darren Dale, the owner and photographer behind DSD Photography. I’m a portrait and wedding/event photographer based near Atlanta, GA and working across North Georgia and throughout the southeastern United States. My background is in photojournalism, so my focus is on capturing environmental portraits and people outdoors and in their natural surroundings. I have a special passion for capturing other artists and creative people such as musicians, painters, potters, etc at work, and you’ll see a variety of images in my portfolio reflecting this passion.
My rates for photo sessions and other photography services depend on your needs. Basic on-location individual/family portrait sessions begin at $50. For information and pricing on my wedding packages please contact me. My day rate for general commercial photography begins at $250 for a half day (4-hours). Of course these prices are basic guidelines, and I’ll be happy to give you a more specific quote once we discuss your particular needs.
In addition to my portrait, wedding, and event photography I also have a growing collection of fine art images available. My fine art photographs are available in a variety of sizes and editions, both limited and open, from large 30×40 inch prints to small notecards, as well as some specialty photo products. All of my fine art prints come matted and signed, complete with a certificate of authenticity.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of all of my fine art images goes to support research into ME/CFS (formerly known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, CFS, or CFIDS), a poorly understood and often dismissed medical condition that can be more debilitating than MS or cancer. Recent estimates put the prevalence in the U.S. at anywhere up to a million people, and as bad as the economic costs of the disease are the stigma and emotional costs can be just as striking.
