Insightful Photographer!

“Derek is an incredibly talented and insightful photographer! We enjoyed the entire experience with him in choosing the right art piece for our home. The artwork is so sharp in detail- it’s truly incredible to look at. We absolutely love the support his art brings to the Wildlife Conservation. He truly gives back to what nature gives to him.”

Coleen Cohn

Really Enjoyed His Presentation!

“Derek was able to give a very inciteful presentation to The Clare residents on his travels, photography and conservation efforts. He was a pleasure to work with and our group really enjoyed his presentation!”

Images on a Whole Different Level

“I was fortunate enough to meet Derek on a trip to Antarctica in early 2020. Antarctica is a stunning place, but the images that Derek captured were on a whole different level. I am now the proud owner of one of his Antarctica images. Derek's professionalism and artistic talent stand on their own, but he has also created a purpose-centred business which gives back to the wild areas where he captures his magic images.”

Contribute to Help Preserve Wildlife

“I ordered an art print I fell in love with. Also I was able to contribute to help preserve wildlife with my purchase! The package came quickly and was packed with an amazing amount of care. It's even more beautiful than I'd hoped for. Will surely order again soon.”

Susan Hayunga

Seriously Amazing Work

“Seriously amazing work! The picture is amazing, the story behind Derek’s work and the thought that goes into each picture. It makes it that much more meaningful having his work hanging in our house, and such a great focal talking point! Absolutely recommend!”

Laurn Roberts

Art with Purpose

If you wish to purchase art with a purpose, you will be more than delightfully surprised by the heart, quality, or composition done by Derek. His work supports other organisations within the conservation space. Truly, gorgeous and meaningful work! Stay Wild!”
