About

Welcome to my new website 'Inspirational-Light'

My name is Derek and I have been interested in Photography from the age of 14, when my first camera was a box brownie, at this time I was just mainly family snapshots and the occassional landscape, and then in my early 20's, I purchased my first SLR being a Yashica FX2, having gone through quite a few different cameras over the years including Olympus OM2n, Nikon F3T, Canon T90, Canon EOS 620, I have now settled on Canon and you can see my present equipment below.

I soon developed an interest for Landscape Photography, and i just love dramatic skies, i also like Creative Photography too, and love to learn different techniques and where I can put a creative element into my Landscapes too. For me shooting landscapes means taking pictures at Dawn and Dusk to get the best available light. During the summer months this can mean leaving home at 2.30am in the morning or getting home around 11.00pm

My interest in Photography has helped me build a career in the retail side of Photography, and have worked for Jessops, London Camera Exchange, and I have also worked for Wessex Photographic (a local family run business) in Blandford Shop.
