Darren (lightgazer) is one of my earlier contacts. He was the one that really helped me on my first night HDRs with his great tips. He has a very eclectic photostream with stunning HDRs. I love his great sense of dramatic composition and top notch post-processing. Warm Regards, Daniel

When you look at one of Lightgazer's images, there is no doubt who produced it. He has a style all his own and it's brilliant and descriptive and engaging....a treasuretrove of work here and so much fun to browse his photostream. A master of technique and story-telling, he is one of flickr's best.

Lightgazer's photography is amazing. I know that he's a photojournalist by trade but his photography goes much further than that. He has a great eye and I'm often amazed at how he's able to turn shots of driftwood and water or a trio of chickens into works of art. His use of HDR is top-notch, especially on his archite… Read more

Lightgazer's photography is amazing. I know that he's a photojournalist by trade but his photography goes much further than that. He has a great eye and I'm often amazed at how he's able to turn shots of driftwood and water or a trio of chickens into works of art. His use of HDR is top-notch, especially on his architectural shots. As a great flickr friend, he drops by now and then to leave an encouraging comment. Thanks for sharing such wonderful work!

This Lightgazer is special, which you will see if you check out his photostream. He has a varied talent - he can do stock shots, art, macro, B&W, straight-up, majorly processed on the computer - he can do it all. Treat yourself to a visual smorgasbord - and he's getting better the more he does - his stuff is addictive.

Lightgazer's images are one-of-a-kind... created by a skilled hand and a creative eye. His eye-catching stream is never boring and every day brings something different. He is a true inspiration, and a great contact. I'm sure he'd be a great friend if I ever had the chance to meet him in person :)

lightgazer is code for 'good times'!.....not only is he a leading sports and events photographer for a major newspaper but he is also a creative artist in his own right. Just check out his work..go right through it and you'll be amazed by the skill and the diversity of his imagery. He has a keen eye for composition and lighting and is equally at home taking pictures of pop stars...ice hockey action...night time shots and life observation. His work in HDR is evolving all the time and in the short time he's been my buddy on flickr I've been glued to his photostream. I've only been aware of flickr for a couple of months and one of my deciding factors to buy an account and stay was being captivated by lightgazers work and I look forward to seeing more of it.....loads more please...in fact with his publishing contacts I think he could produce a lovely book and I would buy one (signed though please!).
