DeWook Tour

The Journalistic musings of a Rock Photographer


DeWook Photography
Exposure in photography allows the photographer to capture the ideal brightness, including high levels of detail in both the shadows and highlight areas. DeWook (née Derek Yurkiewicz) is a Milwaukee based photographer who has come into his own in light of his captivating and aesthetically pleasing action-filled photographs of musicians – including many Wisconsin based artist, as well as regional and National touring artists.

The genesis of DeWook's work has roots that run deep throughout his life.

"Photography came in to my life at a young age," DeWook says. "I actually found photography in my dad's closet in the old camera bag stuffed behind the shoes. It was a 'don't touch me' bag. Dad always said, 'Don't touch the camera equipment; it's expensive.' I got into the bag literally and figuratively."
