Darren Modricker

Our FoundeR

Darren founded Willow Street Pictures in 2002. Born in Lancaster, PA, Darren Modricker moved to Berks County early in his childhood. A friend of the family and a music teacher, Mr. Bozart, taught an elective photography class and introduced Darren to the world of photography.

“Darren Modricker is a nationally acclaimed artist specializing in portraits that capture the essence of a person without artifice or posing…. Moreover, he creates an atmosphere of trust with his subjects that enable him to capture such honest images.”

He graduated with a BFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Darren worked as an apprentice for several of the leading photographers in NYC. Here he learned first hand the technical skills required of professional photographers.

Darren finds the emotional center of the people that he photographs in a respectful way that evokes the person’s true sense of confidence, wonder and bliss.
