Darcy Campbell is proof that you learn something new from every job you create for yourself. Currently living in Toowoomba, the 17-year old business student of USQ has been shooting photos for a few years and aspires to break into the fashion scene. “I have been shooting for a few up-and-coming Toowoomba based clothing labels and local events; but I enjoy working with a whole team”.
Darcy recently held a shoot in Toowoomba’s Kwong Sang Walk and assembled his own team of professionals. With the help of Luminosa’s hair and make up, and clothing by Ophelia Boutique, Darcy produced some impressive shots featuring model Gabrielle Suley.
Balancing university and a steady photography trade has been challenging, but the results have been rewarding so far. Darcy’s work has brought him connections with hair stylists, make-up artists, models and clothing stylists. “I have quite a few projects in the works at this point in time,” Darcy said. “I’m excited to see where I can take it.”
Darcy’s work and upcoming projects can be viewed on his instagram at @darcy_campbell_.
