Hi, I'm Derek. I am a freelance wedding and portrait photographer based in the Outer Hebrides. I would love to hear from you, whether you are looking for a photographer for your wedding day or looking to create some lasting memories through our family portrait photography. There are also a wide range of landscape photographs for sale, either as prints or for commercial use in advertising and promotion. I have a love for portrait photography and landscapes, so let me combine the two and capture the most memorable moments for you in the most beautiful way. Either get in touch through our Contact section, email, or Facebook.

"My goal when I go out shooting photography, be it a wedding, family shoot or even a landscape, I am constantly striving towards creating a story that will captivate my audience.  

I believe every photo tells a story, and everyone has a story to tell that should be captured, and I for one, want to be the person to do that from behind the lens. 

We live in a world where everyone can go out and take a snapshot, but not many can tell a story and make you fall in love with it. Im here to do that. "

Where Are We

Based in Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis, I have the luxury of being able to travel the length of the Outer Hebrides from The Butt to Barra. Traveling to you is easy and I shoot in your home or on location in and around the Hebrides. I also shoot in and around Aberdeen. I will travel further afield and can work all across Scotland, though there are additional costs involved. For more info, you can read our FAQ's or email.
