Derek Breaux

Bonjour, Olá, Guten Tag, my name is Derek Breaux and I have been passionate about photography and the arts in general for over thirty years, although over those years’ photography was more of a hobby due to a full-time military career. I love to photograph with a creative fine arts perspective as well as sports photography and graphics design.

Born and raised just outside of New Orleans, where I admired, with awe, the beauty of Louisiana’s swamps and historical surroundings, from the smallest insect to the largest plantation. I decided early on to try and capture such beauty through the use of photography. Most of the time, unsuccessfully, yet undeterred. At 18, I joined the U.S. Air Force and my love of photography grew and my skills excelled. The military allowed me and my family to travel all over the U.S. and the world. We particularly loved Portugal and France as well as, Belgium, Egypt, England, and Germany. During my travels, I found an immense enjoyment of macro and landscape photography. Macro photography allowed me to show people the beauty of things normally unnoticed and unseen, whereas landscape photography allowed me to share my experiences with family and friends who were so far away. Plus, I just love the “wow factor” reactions that accompany macro photography.

Upon my retirement from the military and settling down in sunny Florida, I’ve found my love of photography has grown and expanded into different areas, such as studio and sports photography as well as a desire to become a professional photographer. I have recently begun a formal education in the arts with the hope of cultivating a career in photography and graphics design.

Though nothing escapes his visual interest, his favorite subjects to capture are typically found in nature. He noticed his photography develop immensely after taking a mission trip to Togo, Africa. He believes everyone should experience life away from their own country if given the opportunity. Garrett is humbled to know that the roads in his life have led him to a career in graphic design and photography, and he hopes to one day contribute his knowledge and passion to aid humanitarian efforts around the world.

Karl Evertz

I graduated from the University of South Florida in 1975 with a bachelor’s degree in fine arts. Marriage and children dictated my pursuit of a career in business. Thirty plus years later I was pleased to learn that film photography still existed. For the last 7 years I have been working with film, which lends itself to many creative processes, including, in my case, self made multiple pinhole cameras. This allows for juxtaposing three individual images on each piece of 4x5 sheet film.
