About us

Our professors


Dirk sold his first picture, commercially at age 12 and realized that photography was his calling. He had been developing his own photographs since he was 10 and eventually earned an apprenticeship with a leading architectural/studio photographer where he learned to shoot everything from buildings to Prime Ministers’ lunchtime meetings, to theatrical dress rehearsals.

Curious about every aspect of the photography industry, Dirk went on to manage a commercial colour lab, design and produce his own publication, work in the print production industry, represent an international camera manufacturer and run his own commercial photography studio.

Still passionate about professional photography after all these years, as a Photography instructor at LaSalle College Vancouver, Dirk is excited to share his experience and knowledge with future photographers.
