Hello my name is Daryl Johnson,

but you can call me 'Astute' . As the founder of Astute Lenz Photography, I have made it my utmost goal to provide a professional quality imaging service to whomever may need it. I began this endeavor simply as an editor, doing work as a retoucher for other photographers. I then began to realize my gift in photography had grown more than the people I was working for. In the winter of 2014 I launched this company and after a couple name changes I arrived at this name. 

Many ask me what ASTUTE LENZ means. The definition of Astute is best known as “having or showing an ability to accurately assess situations or people and turn this to one’s advantage.” I believe this completely embodies my ambitions as a photographer. Making the best out of poor conditions and as well as being a master in great conditions. If my work hasn’t sold you on my abilities, my warm personality will.
