A few months ago we sat down with New York photographer, Derek Balarezo to discuss how he got his start in photography, what makes a great photo, and why the craft itself is much more important than any social media reaction.
"Once you know yourself…. you shoot what feels natural rather than shooting what gets 200 likes on Instagram."
“For me writing this stuff down is important, self realization, all of that is key. If you don’t have that then you’re just floating.”
