About Derek Holzapfel

Specializing in marine wildlife photography both in the underwater and terrestrial world around the Pacific Northwest, Derek is pleased to share his works with you.

Derek has been an avid outdoors person since his mid teens. Spending all holidays and long weekends either hiking or canoeing Ontario’s parks taught him respect and knowledge of natural environments. He started photographing with his first 35mm camera at age 10. A hand-me-down Braun camera from his father started his interest in photography. This camera has been packed, hiked and canoed on many trips.

Derek's outdoor adventures continued and expanded after moving to British Columbia in 1992. Here he found amazing wonders under the ocean, on the land and on the snow-covered mountains. He has now lived on Pender Island in southern BC since 1999. Having since retired from a computer systems profession, Derek now uses his technical skills to work with digital photography and digital video media.

As an amateur naturalist and active scuba diver, his passion is to capture Nature’s creations to share with all. Derek has filmed, photographed and produced the digital video “Pender Island Nature Scenes”, survived an octopus attack, photographed/cataloged over 400 marine species and published his photography in many publications.
