ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER
Husband. Father. Photographer. Derek VanHorn is a North Carolina native who spent his early life in the Foothills, where his love for photography began with a plastic blue 35mm camera his grandparents gave him. His appreciation for the outdoors and spending time in the mountains took him to Appalachian State University where he obtained a business degree, while also gaining a broader appreciation for art and his passion for photography. Life after college brought him to Raleigh, and eventually Wake Forest, where he resides today with his wife and three year old son.
