Derek Johnson was born in Detroit, Michigan in 1972. He got his start shooting for the automotive industry while completing his BA at the College of Creative Studies. After graduation, he quickly moved to New York City to pursue fashion photography. While in New York, he assisted some of the world's greatest photographers, including Irving Penn, William Wegman, and Robert Frank.

When the viewer responds to the subject, a connection is made. This connection, this moment of "Ah!", is the reason Derek Johnson takes pictures.

Thanks Michael"
"Thanks for your work on these Derek and your help with the room types. Remember identical images can be assigned across multiple room types where necessary thereby freeing another image for us. i.e r_2918668_2918631 Thank you Michael"
