ERIK DERMAN

Growing up in coastal, North San Diego County, I discovered surfing at a young age. My desire to capture the essence of the surfing experience and the beautiful environments lead me to experiment shooting video with friends and to later pursue a career in film-making. After graduating from Brooks Institute of Photography, Santa Barbara in 2004, I traveled the world, filming with many clients from South Africa to Fiji and beyond, opening me up to commercial work in the action sports industry. After gaining experience working with many top film-makers, I now find my passion in collaborating and helping communicate the vision of many companies branding and marketing campaigns.

“My mission is to use visual media, in ways which connect the natural environment, the culture and artistic expression of your brand.”

 

Focusing on oceanic sports, there is room to grow, using creative angles and compositions, will help bring awareness to your project whether it be selling a house, celebrating a wedding, or branding a new advertorial campaign.
