Hello, I’m Derek Morrison.

Okay, let’s start with the fun bits: I love surfing, snowboarding, diving, craft beer, fine wine, travel and adventuring with my family … and my dog. And, of course, I love photography and story telling.

I’m passionate about photography and love to deliver imagery that breathes the essence of my clients’ stories. From studio-based photography to location-based commercial campaigns or editorial assignments, I love delivering professional photography that adds real, authentic value to my clients. I understand the importance of photography in sharing a brand’s message and boosting visibility in an increasingly image-saturated marketing landscape. Browse my site and get a feel for my style. I’d love to work with you and your team on your next campaign.

In my field I am considered a specialist in architecture, primary industries, editorial, sports, adventure and tourism. I’m a seasoned professional when it comes to working in stills and film in water (surface and dive), in close range aerial (drone), mid-to long range aerial (helicopter) and I’m an expert in remote locations.

So far in my career I have produced five books, one self published and four with Penguin Random House.

I count my greatest achievement as being able to raise a family through my photography work. Every day I wake and pinch myself – I’m extremely grateful to live a life exploring my passions.
