Darbe is an American lensman with a focus on music, travel and portrait photography. Raised in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York, it wasn't until he moved to New York City in 1994, that his passion for photography revealed itself. He used his cousin's Minolta film camera to shoot his daughter, friends and a few red carpet movie premiers, early on. While employed at Corbis Images as a sales executive, his first photo assignment was the Woodstock Music Festival in 1999 for The Source magazine. Later that year he saw his first editorial success, when the New York Times ran his photo of music artist, Kina, on the front page of the Sunday Arts & Entertainment section. Since then, he's maintained a steady career as a photographer, photo editor and director of photography for such well known companies as MTV, ABC News, People.com and Paris-based ABACA Press. He currently manages photography and other creative endeavors for WebMD.

Darbe can be hired for photo, design and editing assignments worldwide.
