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!

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.
