My name's Cameron Derby, I'm an artist originally from Akron, Ohio and I’ve been drawing since I could pick up a Crayon. Growing up under an artistic roof, raised by a painter and creative art director I’ve always been surrounded by creativity. I've been drawing since I was little, and after taking a photography class in high school I began to pursue my photography career.
After high school, I graduated from Columbia College Chicago where I got my Bachelor’s in Photography. I’ve always had an interest in people and a passion for portraiture. Chicago’s atmosphere and diversity was what inspired me to do documentary work, behind the scenes work, collaborate with a variety of artists, and do fine art portraiture.
After moving to the west coast I began to also merge my photography and fine art together. People, culture and color has always be an inspiring force behind my work whether it be photography or drawings.
