Derek Ho captures art in all things – Science, Nature, and People; and uses photography as a way to live in the present moment. As he pursues his Ph.D. in Biological Systems Engineering studying focusing on detecting Microplastics, Derek embraces the many connections of natural systems.
He amalgamates them into his artwork, creating a very natural yet complex composition in his work.
His focus on space and time simplifies the complexity of reality into a single frame with a rich narrative. His parakeets, Parry and Bloo, are two of his most favorite subjects who honed his ability to create non-verbal narratives from voiceless characters.
Derek’s website aptly named All Things Blootiful, embodies his playful style of photography and his immense appreciation for the world that he always sees as beautiful.

What is Photography to me?
Photography is an opportunity to be present with another and distill the feelings, experiences, and sentiments into a single still image of time. These special moments are fleeting and if captured, can expose a hidden story about the world we live in.
I hope that through my work, I can share with you the odd and beautiful moments that make All Things Blootiful.
Do come along!
