Capturing a poignant moment is one of my greatest passions! With the click of a shutter, I create photographic canvases that cause people to not just glance, but stop and see the intense beauty so often missed in a hurried world.

Besides investing in cutting edge technology and continuing education, what sets me apart is a naturally artistic eye and a good rapport with clients.

Allow me to capture these moments and create treasured heirlooms for you.

I specialize in:
  • Family and High school Portraits
  • Team photos and Fast-action racing events
  • Weddings
  • Scenic Photos
  • and I'm willing to try other creative photographic opportunities

Have a look around; I hope you enjoy my work. To contact Photos by derrick, call 906-282-8795 or email me at

I have been involved in photography for the past 32 years starting with a trusty Canon AE-1. With the world as my muse, I began taking pictures of friends, family and nature.

I live in Quinnesec, Mich., with my beautiful wife Tania and our daughter Lynea. I also work full-time for Louisiana Pacific Corp in the wood yard operations with a varied schedule which allows for either day or night appointments. I will do some traveling as time allows.

Well, I am also interested in such candid shots and I think it is the best way to cover events like wedding and baby showers where the probability for some sweet memorable shots are so high. People would always love to see those kind of images.
