Info                

Derek Brad is an acclaimed photographer from the metropolitan Philadelphia area.  His childhood passion for drawing, sketching and illustrating led to a lifelong urge to create and capture images.  Derek's music photography is recognized around the world for its ability to bring the viewer into the electricity and excitement of a concert experience.  This led to him a regular contributor to many magazines and companies.

Today, Derek has earned a reputation for doing whatever it takes to capture the passion of a performance, the personality of an entertainer or the essence of a brand.  However, Derek is more than just a music photographer.  He enjoys challenging himself by taking on projects in advertising, editorial and conceptual portraiture as well as personal projects like his Road to the GRAMMYs, Musician Portrait Project and "Where is Derek Brad's Aston Martin" project.
