What I'm About. My name is Darin Wood and I’m a residential and commercial interiors, architectural 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 my company formerly known as Film That House.
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 photograph 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 as if it could end up in a magazine. Whether it is a living room in a 900 sqft home or a design project that was worked on by an entire team for a year; 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 man behind the eye patch:
I’ve been in the arts my entire life. I started my professional career not as a full-time photographer, but on stage at the age of 18, right here at The St. Louis Muny, while attending The Boston Conservatory. Several years, (many cities and even more productions,) later, I would become a stand-up comedian performing regularly at The Hollywood Improv and eventually producing my own comedy-variety show in Hollywood. I’m a very lucky, very blessed husband and father of two daughters and “well trained owner” of a very conceited Beagle. In 2013, I lost my right eye to cancer but lucky for me, I have another and my camera has only one lens to look through. It’s no surprise that I love making people laugh just as much as I love looking for new ways to explore my creativity.
