Derek Morrison, Dunedin Light
New Zealand photographer Derek Morrison has specialised in action sports photography since 1994, focusing his lenses on surfing, snow sports, dirt bikes, mountain biking, outdoor recreation and all the nature and people in between. He is well known for his New Zealand photography, particularly his landscape and seascape work. He has held every position from a struggling "no fixed abode" freelancer to editor of top-performing action sports magazines and on to the management helm of the action sports division of a large Australian-based media company.
Derek's work continues to take him to the furthest reaches of the world on exciting adventures in wild places. He chose to live in Dunedin for its endless coastline, vibrant city life, consistent surf and its easy access to the mountains of Canterbury, Central Otago and Fiordland.
