Born and raised in England Craig Derrick and his camera have travelled all over the world following his passion. A professional photographer who admits that he is living his dream, work is his hobby. Dubai, Brazil, Africa and most of Europe have all been pictured in his lens and along the way he has picked up many international awards and recognitions; it has been quite a journey.
With twenty years of experience in the photography business his images have been published in many international magazines and publications and he has also served as a guest speaker in photography seminars as well as numerous workshops. He has also photographed the British Royal Family as well as many A list celebrities. After a successful career in the UK, where he owned and ran his own studio, Derrick moved his business to Croatia, to the pearl of the Adriatic, Dubrovnik.
“The light, the sun and the scenery are just a photographers’ dream. My camera and I fell in love,” comments Derrick on his move. Dubrovnik has been his home for the past few years and the move has proved a positive step, “Dubrovnik and the surrounding region reignited my passion for photography.”
Always on the lookout to expand his portfolio, Craig has worked on projects with MTV, Airbnb and corporate industry on various photography and film works. Craig’s work is characterised by dramatic compositions using the superb natural light of the Mediterranean and he is also an experienced tutor who is passionate about helping others to develop their skills, whatever the level.
His passion and belief for Dubrovnik and the Adriatic coastline shines through his camera. “Some people never live their dream, I wanted to try and live that dream and I don’t regret it for a second. I wake up every morning wanting to go and take photos, wanting to explore and discover.” Portraits, landscapes, wildlife and commercial work, all forms and visions have been perfectly and timelessly captured by Derrick. And with his unique insight and experience of living and working in the Dubrovnik region he is ideally placed to highlight the natural beauties.
