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.
