Portrait of Derek VanHorn

Meet Derek


Hello, and welcome! Thanks for taking the time to get to know a bit more about me. I am a portrait photographer based out of Raleigh, North Carolina, where I live with my wife and four year old son. I've had a camera in my hands since around the age of twelve and loved it from the very first moment.

I grew up in the western part of the state (the great BBQ debate, are you tomato or vinegar based?) and attended college at Appalachian State University. These days I prefer to be near the beach and water though!

Thanks for stopping by, let me know what scene I can create or story I can help tell for you...
