DARREN JOSHUA PHOTOGRAPHY is a latino-owned photography and content creation company located in South Florida, founded by Mexican American, Darren Joshua Leonardi-Gonzalez,published underwater photographer with a Bachelors in Fine and Applied Arts from the University of Illinois at Urbana - Champaign.


Founded under the mantra of  "Art for the Sake of Nature", DARREN JOSHUA PHOTOGRAPHY's primary mission is to provide fuel for conservation work. "It's hard to care about conservation, when you're worried about paying rent and putting food on the table.

By supporting locally owned small businesses, entrepreneurship and empowerment through portraiture, and local community events, we strive to create resilient and sustainable communities. Resilient communities foster an environment for empowerment and thereby ultimately conservation work. 

"As a forever artist, I care deeply about the quality of my work. Composition and attention to detail behind every visual are critical. I love working with people from all industries and backgrounds capturing the human experience,  their passions, and their stories. By photographing others and giving others a chance to be seen, I believe we can make the world a better place. My goal is to provide the highest quality media, over delivering and providing a comfortable, stress free, and most importantly, an enjoyable experience."
