About Me

Hey there, my name is Derek Douglas. Thanks for dropping in to learn a little more about me. If you've made it this far, you've probably guessed that I'm a photographer based in the Niagara River region of New York. That's all true, but even more importantly, I'm a husband, father, and active member of the community. 

I became interested in photography because I love stories. Landscapes, street, portraits--the style or subject doesn't really matter--if I see a story, I want to take part in the re-telling of it to others.

I founded my business in 2023 after returning home to Niagara County from twelve years spent serving our country. Seeking a reset, I decided to take this incredibly scary professional plunge into a world I love. After all, if not now, when?

On the business side, I pride myself in providing high standards of work, communication, and professionalism with my clients. I want to help you tell your story . . . how you envision it.


For businesses: commercial photography packages and headshots.

 For individuals: family photography sessions, portraits (on-location, no studio work), and headshots.

I also provide a printing service for local artists and photographers. Not sure if your request fits into one of those categories? Let me know!


I maintain a keen personal interest in black and white photography, but also enjoy working with a variety of post-processing styles and techniques to meet my clients' tastes and resonate with their personal style.


You can find me out and about in all areas of Western New York, though I am open to travel for exciting opportunities.

Favorite spots tend to be near water.
