I love creating narratives through photographs — about people, moments, businesses, the creative process — everything really. There’s always a story.
My focus is fashion, portrait, and lifestyle photography. My personal work has focused on street photography. I love the hunt for the moment, the delight of the unexpected, and the tableau of the everyday.
I’m a self-taught photographer and former lawyer. I’ve also freelanced as a writer for several New York newspapers.
I live in New York City with my husband and two daughters.
I’m an Englishman in New York, sound familiar?
I became a photographer back in 2002 and was a digital evangelist for Hasselblad and traveled the world promoting professional digital photography before we had iPhones. I’ve been on TV for shows like Sweden’s Next Top Model and have photographed unbelievably cool people – both well-known and not so well-known. I live vicariously through performers.
I’ve worked across the world for lots of publications and have had what you’d call a “varied” career. From bouncing around in helicopters with the French Foreign Legion in Africa, to photographing 300 naked people for charity, I haven’t exactly seen it all, but I’ve seen a lot.

Derek Reed is a commercial photographer, video director, and photo editor based in New York City. Working with some of the best known actors and models in both the fashion and entertainment industries.
I’ve always had a curiosity for exploring spaces and a desire to describe what I see to others. I began to use drawing and painting as tools to create imaginary buildings as a child. Since then I developed my discerning eye for describing space while earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography and studying Architecture at Ball State University. There I built several pinhole cameras in pursuit of a simple machine that could record the essence of a space. This quest led me to New York City where I showed my fine art pinhole photographs and began my commercial photography training. Starting out using a 4×5 view camera and film, I built relationships with architects, designers, art directors, and editors. Always focused on remaining efficient and getting projects published, I quickly adapted to using digital capture. Today, my goal is to be a visual storyteller who describes the unfolding of a space by using my camera.

I’m a documentary filmmaker and photographer from Brooklyn, NY. Widely exhibited, my work consists largely of telling well-intentioned and respectful stories about people on journeys – people who either are experiencing great challenges or who have overcome such challenges. My most recent film project, "Hello Sunshine”, profiles a woman who has survived decades of gun violence and domestic violence trauma and has channeled these traumas into service – saving the lives of those in active opioid addiction and supporting the families of murder victims.
In addition, I have an on-going project about the impact of gun violence on a diverse group of Americans. Young, old, rich, poor, in big cities and in rural communities – “It Takes Us” shows how gun violence cuts through the heart of the country. “It Takes Us” has been published globally and presented at colleges, universities, medical centers, and more.
