About Derek

 


I’ve always had a love for photography, since my mother took me along on photo shoots as a child. Although it was just after my Mother’s passing I realized my serious passion for photography.  Very few things can evoke emotion so easily as a photo of a loved one. I desire to provide that for my clients.  I am a direct product of my Mother’s love for photography and I share her passion for it. Anyone can use a camera, even learn the technical aspects of photography, but I believe it is an art that one must have a passion for to achieve great results consistently. The relationships I’ve made with those whom I’ve photographed I will have forever and that is one of the most rewarding aspects.

The only thing I enjoy more than photography is spending time with my amazing wife and our three little ones.

I am now a commercial photographer, specializing in people, wedding, and studio photography with a style consisting of colorful and energetic imagery. Running a client-friendly, service-oriented business I believe that great creativity often is the result of team effort and values working closely with my clients. Based in the greater Charlotte area I am ready to create amazing visuals for you.
