I’m Derek D’Souza photographer at Blink And You Miss It www.blinkandyoumissit.com
Photography is more than my passion, I put my heart and soul into it, and shooting live gigs is the genre I love to shoot the most!
Taking photos under stage lighting conditions, is one of the most challenging, ‘In the crowd’ you are in with hundreds, sometimes thousands of fans, everything, and everyone is moving – the lights and colours are constantly changing! I would say the main thing that drives me on is the belief that the best photo I am ever going to take, is one I haven’t taken yet.
My work has been published in the Music press, magazines, books, and has appeared on many cd/record sleeves, and I have released two books thus far, and have had my work displayed in several exhibitions. One of my personal highlights was when one of my photographs of The Jam was chosen for display in The National Portrait Gallery in London.
