Derek Galon FRPS FRPS

Son of a musician – as a small child loved spending hours under his dad’s grand piano, listening as he practiced for his upcoming concerts. This powerful experience of real “surround sound” determined his life choice – the arts!

He studied classical music, arts and photography – requisitioned the family bathroom to serve as darkroom. Already in his teens he was winning awards and exhibiting works, while simultaneously continuing his education and giving concerts. With  university studies completed, he further pursued his professional career in the arts.
After arriving in Canada from Europe, he expanded his professional   interests to include multimedia and graphic design. He has also published books, and collaborated on production of animated 3D holograms. But photography and filming still remain his strongest passion.   And, he keeps photographing…and then, filming…and photographing…  (now for over forty years!)

Derek has made his mark during the last four decades as an internationally recognized architecture and commercial photographer, while creating his own art images along the way. His works sold to clients in many countries around the world.

Derek is available for lectures and workshops on technical and artistic aspects of photography, photo-editing, travel photography, creative studio lighting,  and on photography publishing - to camera clubs and other interested parties. He often gets invited as a juror of photo salons and competitions.

Derek also offers independently his photography and video filming services both for  local customers in Dominica, West Indies (Eastern Caribbean) – and for customers requiring fine photography taken in various locations around the world.

He offers filming services in broadcast quality (ProRes 4K) to producers, and photo video stock footage for licensing. He is a Getty contributor, and his nature images are featured at Nature Picture Library in Bristol.
