Derek Dunlop Photography

Reviews and Accolades

Hamish & Angela

Derek is a wonderful photographer and a super warm, friendly and fun dude to have taking your wedding pictures. He came highly recommended by a friend and even still managed to exceed expectations.
Derek took our wedding pictures from before the ceremony until the first dance and captured a perfect mix of requested group shots and reportage style - ensuring we have amazing memories of all who joined our special day.
An absolute professional who has clearly invested a lot of time studying and perfecting his craft. He balances his awesome creativity with great business skills - fab communication, plenty of time to meet and discuss requirements and also keen to get to know his clients so ensuring personalised shots.
I really hope our paths cross again soon with Derek and Katie. Thanks so much! x

Derek was absolutely amazing. We couldn't have asked for a better photographer!
At our first meeting Derek put both of us at complete ease and this continued all the way through to the wedding. He is so enthusiastic and has so many great ideas.
Prior to the wedding we had an engagement shoot around some of our favourite places in Glasgow so we could get used to having our picture take and it took away any nerves we had.
The pictures from our wedding look incredible and have captured the day perfectly. We honestly can’t thank Derek enough, he was fantastic!

Not only is Derek a true professional in his field, he's a very friendly and great guy to deal with in general. I've just completed a very impressive photo shoot with him and myself and my management. Will definitely continue to work with him moving forwards..highly recommended!


Derek has a natural eye for detail, he's easy to work with and makes the whole process so easy and enjoyable.

he truly knows his stuff when it comes to photography and knows how to capture what you are looking for.

wonderful to work with you


I recently worked with Derek on an editorial shoot for a fashion company and luxury hotel, and I couldn't recommend him enough. I'm not a professional model but Derek made me feel extremely comfortable from the outset, with really helpful direction for the shots and lots of encouragement. The end results are more than I could have ever dreamed of. As my dad said, you wouldn't find better photography in Vogue! He has a real eye for colour and lighting. Thanks Derek!


I worked as a model with Derek and I cannot recommend him highly enough! He is very professional and well organised and makes you feel at ease. He knows what looks good, taking into account many factors such as the lighting, poses, clothing etc and he can communicate this well. Derek was very quick in getting edited images back to me which were of a high standard. Derek was always quick in replying to messages and I felt like we really worked together as a team.

Derek has amazing passion for photography, he knows exactly what he's doing. He connects with people straight away and creates a friendly environment. Derek's work speaks for himself - photos are absolutely amazing! would recommend him without any hesitation!

Cannot recommend him highly enough. Derek is an absolute pleasure to work with, made us feel comfortable and relax. A great photographer with plenty of technical knowledge and amazing ideas. Looking forward to working with him again!



Had an amazing shoot, Derek had picked amazing locations. He directed well and got more than enough amazing shots from it! He makes you feel so at ease and can have a good laugh, which creates images you never thought would be nice! Learned a lot on this shoot. He even got me a coffee and a burger!! BEST PHOTOGRAPHER I’ve worked with so far!! Thanks again Derek!
