Derek Swalwell

  • Designer Derek Swalwell

Derek Swalwell is one of Australia’s best known and most respected commercial photographers. At the heart of this prolific creative output, of course, is a personal passion. Derek is driven by a fascination for his subject matter. He is drawn to bustling cities, bold architecture, big skies and expansive landscapes.  First and foremost, Derek is an observer of the world, and his personal projects are what keeps this wide-eyed curiosity alive.

“As a commercial photographer you have to disconnect yourself from your daily commercial work, and indulge yourself in what you love, shooting your own work. It’s your trademark! And keeps you fresh, allowing you to present your real self as a photographer to others.”
