“I have had the pleasure of working with Derek for what is now four photo shoots. For someone who would have never seen themselves doing creative photo shoots beyond family photos, working with Derek was a totally new and awesome experience. He makes every shoot new and exciting and fun, and the photos always turn out beautifully. Whether you’re going for smiley or fierce, group shots or individual, city-at-night or fall foliage settings, Derek Johnson is your guy!!! xx”

"I've been working with Mr Derek for what seems like forever now and every shoot is just as fun as the first. The concepts of each shootare creative and fun so the model gets all kinds of experience. It's been a pleasure to be there since almost the beginning of Mr Derek's photography journey and with each shoot it gets better and better."

Working with Mr Johnson was a great experience for me. he was flexible, professional and kind. He knew exactly how to work with the lighting to produce the best photo possible and he knew just the right poses to help me look my best. My senior portraits are loved by both friends and family and I believe they wouldn't haev been so amazing with anyone else!

I had a group portrait session and family portraits taken with Mr. Derek and it was a really fun expereience! Mr Derek had so many great ideas and made sure we were comfortable with each photo idea. We loved the photos and were able to share them with family and friends. I would definitely book another photo session with Mr Derek!

Shajeh Horton, Class of 2016

Shajeh is our 6th and last child and we had a history-making opportunity to go all out and immoralize him on canvas. So we chose the very best photographer who has been gifted and anointed to capture our son's very special moments through the Eye of God's Lens the way HE sees him! Thank you for your uniqueness that makes images that last an eternity!
