May 9 – Streets, Shorelines and Ranches – Unleash Your Camera!

Derek Simpkins is an accomplished photographer from Vancouver. His interest in serious photography began when he opened his Gallery of Tribal Art on Granville Street. Using his camera to capture the work of many well known aboriginal artists, he eventually saw his camera as an artistic tool for his own creative desires.
Derek furthered his photographic skills by completing a National Geographic Workshop in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He acknowledges that “having your images critiqued for seven days by three internationally recognized photographers and twenty classmates is an intense learning experience!” Since that time, Derek’s photography has evolved into his love for street subjects, human and animal portraits, and natural landscapes. His images have been exhibited @ Omega Gallery and @ Nature Vancouver.

Derek will bring his brand of street photography to share this evening along with the stories to go with them. Come and enjoy!
