Name Derek Davis Cameras Nikon D3 & D800
We go on a shoot with legendary landscape photographer Charlie Waite
A police officer from London, Derek has been interested in photography for as long as he can remember. He bought his first D-SLR, a Nikon D5000, in 2007. The birth of his daughter prompted him to upgrade to a D3, and then a D800, both of which he bought secondhand: “I’d hired someone to take photos of my daughter,” he explains, “but the results were just snapshots, and I thought to myself: ‘I could do better than that.’” As well as photographing his daughter, he loves to shoot landscapes, but with big vistas he sometimes struggles to know what to include, and what to leave out.
