Check out my water art - DerekTXFactor's Biography Hello, Thank you for taking the time to look at my photography. Here is some info. about my journey. I began taking pictures at age four while traveling with my family to Air Force Bases where my father was stationed, including Montana, Texas, Pennsylvania and the Pacific Northwest. As a matter of fact my first pictures were landscapes shot form the family station wagon like Annie Liebowitz. I come from an artistic family— my mother sketched portraits of various people, and my older sister studied art, becoming an accomplished painter. My father enjoyed photography, and I inherited some of his cameras, which I took to college. There I became a yearbook photographer and won a color photography contest. In 2008, I got my first DSLR camera, which I took to Antarctica. This trip rekindled my love of photography, where I was able to photograph penguins in the wild in Chile and the Falkland Islands. Since then, I have photographed various wildlife, including Koalas and Tasmanian Devils on a recent trip to Australia and New Zealand. I have photographed the Portland Fashion Week for the past four years. As a member of the Portland non-profit Architectural Heritage Foundation, I have volunteered and photographed some of the museum’s artifacts. I have found inspiration in taking pictures of water and things that are associated with water. As a self taught artist I try to learn something new every day, this has lead me to think outside of the box and push the envilope of photography. Stay tuned for info. on upcoming exhibits.
