Derek Olson Photography
I am a creative photographer based in Asheville, North Carolina. My passion is documenting emotions, people, life, and stories through the medium. I received my BA in Multimedia Arts from UNCA in 2006 and have been doing photography full-time ever since. My education is deeply important to me and has benefited me in so many ways. Even though I’m learning more about photography and my shooting style now, an education in the arts helped me figure out I needed to be a photographer. My goal is to never stop learning and always push the envelope (my personal self-addressed one anyway).
Do I photograph weddings? Yes, I do. And I thoroughly enjoy it! It’s an important day in people’s lives with so much joy, love, and energy. This site is mainly for my personal work but you can view my wedding photography
here. I take a photojournalistic approach but also like creative portraiture. It’s exciting that wedding photography has evolved in the last few years and doesn’t have to be ‘cheesy’ anymore.
