Hello, my name is James Derek and I'm a Chicago based freelance artist with expertise in portrait and fashion photography.

Through the lens, I'm able to tell stories that are unique & compelling, and turn ideas into reality. I'm truly inspired by a love for fashion, urban landscape and music - all of which contribute to how I help to tell the stories of myself, and others.

I enjoy working closely with other fun & like minded creatives - if you are interested in connecting or have any collaborative inquiries, please feel free to send me an e-mail through the Contact link above. I look forward to working with you!
