Personally, I love rock-n-roll, motorcycles & photography! At age 13, my heart sang when I first listened to Jimi Hendrix, I gazed in awe as my brother developed prints in his homemade dark room & I was energized by wind in my face while riding on the back of a friend's Harley (ok, that was age 18). All three experiences captured my soul and have not let go. Mother Nature too has a huge hold on my spirit, Thank Goodness!
My work? I want to capture what you are passionate about. I provide compelling, storytelling images to businesses, associations & individuals. Producing images for websites, brochures & annual reports, I photograph people, products & people using products; from bird homes to motorcycles. I love documenting events and capturing moments in time. Derby Photography launched in Denver in 1993 & relocated to Seattle in 1995. My goal is to help your business be more successful & to provide enjoyment by solidifying your memories in pixels.
