Personal brand photographer

Born in New Zealand, Derek has spent time living in Melbourne and Sydney, Australia. Now based in Bali, Indonesia, he loves to travel (and hang out at airports) as he frequently jet-sets the globe shooting entrepreneurs. Through a synchronistic turn of events, Derek was gifted a DLSR which planted the seed of creativity. Photography enabled him to appreciate all that life has to offer and how to see the beauty in everything. This drive and passion developed his skills behind the camera whilst assisting him to understand his clients needs and direct them skilfully so as to capture their authentic and true to life selves.

“It’s one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it’s another thing to make a portrait of who they are.”
