Hello, I am Derrick Simpson. I have lived and worked in the upstate of South Carolina my entire life. I received my bachelors degree in Architecture from Clemson University in May of 2006. Upon graduation, I worked in Greenville, SC at a small Architecture firm which provided me with invaluable real world experience. I have also been involved with Capital Decorative Concrete from its' inception in 1990 as an installer and partner of the company. In May of 2011, I received my Masters of Architecture degree from Clemson University. In July, I was fortunate to get to marry an amazing woman and my best friend Alicia. We have had a wonderful first year of marriage together and she is currently pursuing her graduate degree in Occupational Therapy in Gainsville, GA.

I have been an avid hobbyist in photography for about 11 years now and I still feel like I learn something every time I go out to shoot. I have been very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with industry professionals who graciously mentor me in my own studies.

"A photograph can be an instant of life captured for eternity that will never cease looking back at you." -Brigitte Bardot

My photography interests are currently focused toward architecture, people, landscapes, and sports. I love trying to find new angles on everyday items in order to expand our own perceptions.

Thank you for visiting my online gallery. I hope that you find what your looking for. Feel free to contact me with any questions you have.
