I’m Derek a professional food and drink photographer based in Auckland but available to shoot nationwide. I’ve worked with some amazing clients such as Countdown, NZ Herald, Burgerfuel, Airbnb, Waitoa free range chicken, Jack Links beef jerky and Huon salmon to name a few.
In a former life I used to be based in London shooting for a range of local, regional, national and International clients. I still often fly back to London for assignments with my UK clients.
I love shooting food and drink – probably due my previous chef life. However I also shoot interiors for both Commercial clients such as hotel, bars and restaurant along with Residential clients such as Airbnb Plus.
I shoot exclusively with high end Swiss studio strobe lighting and modifiers which enable me to shape the light and shoot in all conditions
