Your Vacation Photographer in Victoria: Meet Derek

Meet Derek

Canada - Victoria - Derek.jpg

Derek is available for shoots in Victoria, as well as 60-minute bookings for Tofino/Ucluelet and other areas on Vancouver Island.

I am a commercial and editorial photographer specializing in portraiture and lifestyle assignments. For me, photography is really about visual storytelling. My work draws the best from people, capturing truth, playfulness and beauty. I am grateful for what I do; my photographs have been featured on local, regional and national magazine covers and I have photographed celebrities Bif Naked and Erica Ehm. 

Three Things

  1. I love surfing, camping and experiencing the wilderness. 
  2. I know a lot of corny jokes, which helps with what I do, sometimes. 
  3. I lived in London, England for 2 years.

Favourite Place to Shoot in Victoria
Victoria offers so many great backdrops, from the incredible beaches and shorelines to the traditional architecture of downtown. Among my favourites are Beacon Hill, Dallas Road waterfront and the causeway at the Inner Harbour.
