Hey there! Need new headshots? You've come to the right place! My name is Derek and I'm an expert in making people just like you look damn good. I have years of experience shooting actors, models, and business people just like yourself, and I approach each and every shoot with excitement, passion, and creativity.

Headshots are all about building a personal brand. Whether it be for acting or business or blogging, the goal is to create an image that makes it clear who you are and what you do. When you work with me, rest assured that I will take the time to understand your goals and your audience and photograph you in a way that showcases your strengths, generates intrigue, and makes an impact.

I strongly believe that you deserve a photographer who is going to show up for you, listen to what you need, coach you through the photoshoot, and deliver high quality work on time.

That's what I do. Let me do it for you!

Derek took some fantastic photos for me for business and for social media. He has an excellent sense of style and aesthetics and knows how to make them come out perfect. He’s very instructive and patient with folks like myself that are not used to being photographed.

Derek is a great photographer who shot professional photos for my LinkedIn page. He is super helpful at getting the look, posture, and message across in his head shots, and I am happy to recommend him without reservation.

I found Derek back in March. I was looking for a professional head shot. I had never had one taken before and the work I saw on his website caught my eye. We exchanged emails back and forth to schedule a time for us to meet for the pictures. He was very understanding and when my initial session with him had to be rescheduled due to me having to go out of town. We ended up rescheduling and I was very happy with the outcome of the pictures. I was uncertain at first primarily because of social anxiety I get with meeting new people - but he was very easy to talk with throughout the process. Thank you Derek for the pictures!

Reached out to Derek Thursday and had the shoot Saturday. Had the photos good to go by Monday. He does INCREDIBLE work. 10/10 would recommend for professional shots, or just shots in general!

Thanks Derek! Killer job.

Derek is an amazing photographer. Coolest studio setup I’ve experienced so far, returns photos quickly & provides valuable tips. I highly recommend getting headshots done by Derek, I’m so in love with mine! It was my first time shooting with him & he made me feel very comfortable & gave honest perspective throughout photo shoot. Thank you thank you again!
