Derek Liang is a freelance photographer based in Orange County, California.

He believes the ability to share photos at a seconds notice to millions across the globe, is what makes photography truly fascinating and rewarding in today’s world.

He enjoys traveling to new places, discovering new cultures and inspirations. At the same time, he is also fascinated when rediscovering old ones, capturing familiar places in a new light.

While the act of photography is simple, he realizes photography is much more than just pointing the camera at a subject and pressing the shutter. It is about telling a story, one which elicits his viewers into thought, through his photos.
