Ian Derry

Ian Derry is an experienced celebrity photographer known for his exquisite eye and collaborative style of working.

“You need to bond with the person you are shooting,” says Derry, who has photographed some of the biggest stars in the world, from actors to politicians and even royalty. "Getting them into a comfort zone is the key to both bringing out their personality and telling their story.”

It’s this philosophy that has now led Ian to the world of directing. His debut short Johanna - a stunning portrait of an Arctic free diver - almost crashed the internet when it landed on Nowness, quickly racking up thousands of views and earning itself a Vimeo Staff Pick.
