Derek Galon - MA, ARPS
son of a musician – as a small child loved spending hours under his dad’s grand piano, listening as he practiced for his upcoming concerts. This powerful experience of real “surround sound” determined his life choice – the arts!
He studied classical music, and also photography – requisitioned the family bathroom to serve as darkroom. Already in his teens he was winning awards and exhibiting works, while simultaneously continuing his education and giving concerts. With university studies completed, he further pursued his professional career in the arts.
After arriving in Canada from Europe, he expanded his professional interests to include multimedia and graphic design. He has also published books on web design.
But music and photography still remain his strongest passion. He works as a photographer and graphic designer. And, he keeps photographing…and then, photographing… and photographing…
Along with his long-time partner Margaret (art historian, writer) he runs Ozone Zone Books publishing company. One of their recent books won Benjamin Franklin Book Excellence Award 2010 in New York, and another won prestigious Nautilus Book Award 2011, and some others.
They specialize in fine, top-end coffee table books. Company also offers flexible services – from art photography (including location photography in remote places), to designing, writing, publishing and printing brochures, calendars, booklets, books and other materials - all with usage of photographs created by Derek.
