"An Eye for capturing memorable moments", is the legacy that Darius Townes hopes to leave with the world through his film and photography expertise. At the age of sixteen Townes started his career as a videographer under the mentorship of Harry Washington, CEO of TsC Video and Photography Productions. What first inspired him to pursue a career in photograpy were the graphics, designs, and locat...ions of the photoshoots. He now uses those skills and knowledge in his passion for photography. Observing the competition, Darius went into business for himself starting his own company Up-Townes Photography in summer of 2011.
Darius states, "knowing the hardships that many people have faced, there still is a need for events and films to be photographed. Being able to take on any event to help capture those special moments is an exhilarating contribution.” Darius has an extensive portfolio which includes numerous photo shoots for Divine Measures Band, local hip hop artists' FAME and Cool AC, and asipiring model, singer and hip hop artist Sharday Turner; among many others. He now leads many roles as the videographer and photographer for Divine Measures Band and is the head photographer for Kingdom Builders Fellowship.
Darius was raised in a Christian home, therefore like most he grew up around music. Singing and playing the piano were his first loves. The relationships he had developed through his music career helped him perfect his craft as a music artist and producer. Though, he has faced many hardships, remaining humble has helped him overcome many obstacles that led him to live a healthy and positive lifestyle. Currently, residing in the Virginia area he plans to increase his clientele and add growth to his company Up-Townes Photography.
