What I'm About. My name is Darin Wood and I’m an architecture and design photographer in St. Louis, Missouri. I have been serving clients throughout the Greater St. Louis Metro area since 2009. After several years of residing on both the Atlantic and Pacific Coasts as well as the beautiful Rocky Mountains, I returned to my hometown and soon after, started Film That House, real estate walk-through video tour company before real estate videos were a thing. Now that they are, ironically, I primarily shoot photos.
I have a passion for helping my clients establish their brand as a business that consistently employs top tier marketing through high quality imagery.
Why does it matter? As a photographer, you never know the heights that one little click of a shutter button can take you. Carefully crafted images take on a life of their own. This is no different for my clients. ‘One great photo of your work’ can land you the biggest, most important job of your career. It is for this reason, I try to take every photograph knowing it could end up being a very big deal. I put the same effort into every image, never compromising. Put simply, a “good enough” image is never delivered to a client. I do not have to love the room I’m photographing, but I do have to love the photograph.
That’s what Darin Wood Photography is all about. However, if you are interested in the Darin:
I’ve been in the arts my entire life. I started a professional career not as a full-time photographer, but on stage at The St. Louis Muny while majoring in theatre at The Boston Conservatory. Several years, (many cities and even more productions,) later, I would transition into stand-up comedy performing regularly at The Hollywood Improv and eventually producing my own nightclub show in Hollywood. I’m a very lucky husband and father of two daughters. Dog person…Beagle. In 2013, I lost my right eye to cancer but like Dilios in 300, I was graced “with a spare.” After that line, I guess I’ll admit I’m a big movie nerd too.
