About Derek Dix
To me, the most crucial elements in creating work are the ability to communicate innovative concepts, a succinct visual narrative, and a meticulous attention to detail. My images focus on what I'm most passionate about, the outdoors. This has my body of work ranging from action sports, to landscapes and portraiture. I aim to shoot each image detailing the subject, the journey and the environment's narrative. My images serve to communicate the story behind the adventure. They provide a glimpse into the landscape that I find myself immersed within while out in remote locations. On their own, they aid in delivering a narrative of the area and the feeling it evokes.
