Darren Laing is a photographer, visual designer, videographer and all around talented entrepreneur.
Straight out of college after not landing a position at Vibe magazine, he jumped right into working for himself and building what we now know as Dafix Studios. To make things even more exciting, Darren is our first male Raven Maven. Since our interview he has gone on to explore other big opportunities, such as photographing the R&B singer K. Michelle. He exhibits all the qualities of a maven through his incredible ability to make lemons into lemonade. So take a few minutes and grab a pen and paper to take notes — because we want you to watch Darren and Toya talk business, good and bad clients, career, money and success.
Raven Maven is a quarterly video series where we sit down with innovative and creative members of the African Diaspora to discuss their successes, failures and motivations. Visit our blog to see previous Mavens.
