As a result of his captivating imagery, Darren is credited with elevating the photographic coverage of Formula 1 racing from a predominantly reportage style to one of artistic expression and sensory engagement befitting the spectacle that is F1 racing. In 2005, The Royal Photographic Society (RPS) awarded Darren its prestigious Honorary Fellowship in recognition of his distinguished ability in his chosen field.

The Sunstudios complex and Canon Experience Store are located 95 Buckhurst Street in South Melbourne and the exhibition runs from 14 to 28 March. The opening hours are from 9.00 am to 5.30 pm, Monday to Saturday.
