The person behind the camera

Hello, I'm Derek

I live in Inverness, the Capital of the Highlands! I am married to Mary, we have three daughters and six grandchildren.

I served as a police officer with the Northern Constabulary for 30 years.

Following retirement, I worked for 6 years as a Church Outreach Worker and was Chaplain at two city addiction centres.

Some years ago, I enjoyed playing football at different levels and running. At football during 1984 I played for Ness FC, when they were the first team from the Western Isles to win the Highland Amateur Cup. In running, I completed nine marathons (PB 2.40) and was the first to run from the Butt of Lewis to the Isle of Barra. (A charity run of approximately 150 miles over five days).


I now prefer to watch and walk! I began photography as a hobby and it remains a great pastime.

Work in Ukraine

In 2016, I travelled to Ukraine to work for a short period with a church in Kyiv located in an area with much deprivation, addiction and a high crime rate. The photograph of myself together with a group of Military Cadets was taken in Lviv - I wonder where these young men are today.

Saluting the  'Bread basket of Europe'

You may be aware that the Ukraine was once known as the “Bread Basket of Europe.”


This accompanying image reminds me of the Ukraine: it was taken on Black Isle, a large farming area a short distance from Inverness.
