The Team



Drawn to adventure, and fascinating stories, Darcy has travelled the globe in search of interesting subjects. He has shot and directed several short documentaries ranging from water contamination in Thailand, a luthier on Vancouver Island, and most recently, Canadian doctors working in Uganda.

Darcy has always had a passion for looking through the lens. While honing his creative eye as a graphic designer and illustrator, he was always found carrying a camera.



Michael Matthews is a bestselling non-fiction writer, originally from the UK, with experience in writing for both feature length and short documentary.

A keen traveller to remote or unusual destinations, Michael has visited both ends of the Great Wall of China and climbed mountains in Nepal. He has been to Timbuktu (just because) and Kalamazoo (because it rhymes with Timbuktu) but has a particular liking for Detroit.

As well as writing, Michael is also a photographer, and his work has appeared in numerous newspapers, magazines and books around the world on subjects as diverse as law enforcement, American sub-cultures, politics and travel. He also appears on radio and television (inc. BBC, FOX, ABC, CBC, SKY) commenting on social issues.
