I live in the UK County of Rutland and photography has always been a passion. Originally I worked in General Management and extensive travel with the job allowed me the opportunity to develop my photographic skills, enjoying photographing people and places. Today I enjoy taking a range of images.

To develop this skill further, I studied for a Foundation Degree in Professional Photography (completed June 2014), with the ultimate aim of studying for a BA (Hons) in Photography with Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge

My camera has always been Canon, and the current main camera body is a Canon EOS R5, each new model brings a fresh approach to image capture but mirrorless has added many new benefits, my second body is a Canon Film SLR and also a Canon R mirrorless body, I still enjoy the complete wet process of B&W film photography but B&W on mirrorless is also excellent and I am very impressed by the overall performance and quality of mirrorless cameras

These images have given me much pleasure in taking them and I trust you get the same from viewing them. If needed you can contact me via the contact page or use the email address derek@dereksphotopages.co.uk
