I am Derek Galon, MFA – a multi awarded pro photographer / videographer born in Poland. I studied arts in Europe, I have decades of European, Canadian and Caribbean experience – now residing in Dominica, Eastern Caribbean (West Indies, or Lesser Antilles).
I offer commercial and personal video / photo services for overseas clientele – big or small projects. If you are a producer in need of quick footage from Dominica and the Caribbean – in these difficult times it can be much faster, less expensive, and easier to hire me than sending your crew over here.
Being European and Canadian, I know how to be prompt and keep important customers happy with my services. Living in the Caribbean for years – I know well how to film it. Lets discuss your project. Exceeding expectations is what I enjoy, so please let me know what you may require. I can be your cameraman, co-producer, fixer, or photographer in the Caribbean. Or, I can offer you personalized services when you’ll come here. Lots of Caribbean stock images and footage also available. Thank you for finding me!
Your life – Your business – Your property – these are unique moments, achievements, and places. To show them at their best you need a professional who will understand them, have a creative vision and fluent advanced skills.

Educated in Arts, I am obsessed with creative approach, quality, and self-improvement – and it shows in my work. Better photography, video, AI, and better quality services. I am obsessed with Better. This is perhaps why I am often hired for international location jobs where failure or mediocre is not an option. I simply deliver Better work – for these who appreciate and need the best. Don’t take my word for it – see my portfolio galleries, judge for yourself, compare – then decide.

This is much more than just another photo service. I believe that without true artistic touch and perfection, a good photo, video, or publishing work is incomplete. Only top quality workmanship combined with a marked artistic approach can produce truly memorable and appealing creation, something one would want to return to over and over again.
