Hello, I’m Derek George.

And here’s how I went on to establish one of Hertfordshire's longest running independent businesses.

Leaving school at 16 years of age, I joined one of North London’s most reputable wedding photographers and learnt the photography trade from the best.

As my career progressed, demand for my work grew. And in 1977 I decided to go solo and set-up my own photography studio in Hitchin, Hertfordshire – the same place it can be found today. However, the location of Derek George Photography is one of the only things to not change over time.

As memory cards replaced photographic film and traditional albums made way for contemporary photo books, Derek George Photography has continued to evolve.

And over 35 years later, it is now one of the most well known businesses on Hitchin’s high street with a reputation for producing award-winning wedding photography, as well as portrait photography and commercial photography.

Pop in and say hi when you're next in town.
