2nd Nature Studio

 About Me

Hi, i’m Darren Harris, a Graphic/Web Designer & Amateur Photographer living in Coastal South West Devon. I love colour and tonal photography, everything from Portraits to Animals and Landscapes. I like nothing more than taking an unplanned walk into the countryside that surrounds me & snapping away, sometimes the unplanned trips are the ones that get the great shots – you just never know!

I am always learning my craft, whether that be design or photography, this keeps me fresh & fires my imagination to do more & push myself.
