Derek Sturman is a photographer and digital artist based in Utah. Derek specializes in landscape photography and astrolandscape photography. He began photographing the night sky in July 2015 – since then, he has shot landscapes throughout western America.
“My photographs were shot with a Nikon D850 DSLR camera and processed using various programs, including Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop. Many people consider me a digital artist, as there are many artistic interpretations and adjustments in my work. I have found that photography is a constant urge to reproduce an emotion or sensation of a moment or place. For this reason, I modify many of my images to better capture the moment, ”says the photographer.
