Derry Brabbs is acclaimed as one of England's finest published photographers with thirty illustrated books to his credit. His gloriously evocative portraits of the Yorkshire Dales contributed to the success of worldwide bestseller, James Herriot’s Yorkshire. Derry’s distinctive photographic style was also subsequently utilized to outstanding effect in his collaboration with the legendary author and doyen of the Lakeland Fells, Alfred Wainwright, with whom he produced a seven book series on England’s Lake District, Scotland and the Pennine Way and Coast to Coast long distance footpaths.

As an author in his own right, Derry Brabbs has produced ten beautifully photographed titles, the majority of which celebrate Britain’s unique countryside and its richly endowed architectural heritage, themes that also featured in his much lauded work on the medieval pilgrim routes across France and Spain to the shrine of St James in Santiago de Compostela. The Roads to Santiago was also widely published in mainland Europe and translated into German, Dutch, French and Spanish. In addition to his publishing projects, photographic workshops and other commissioned assignments, Derry Brabbs has also established a reputation as an engaging and humorous public speaker, delivering lavishly illustrated lectures on a wide range of topics.
