Derek's Oilfield Photography
Welcome to the Derek's Oilfield Photography website! Since 2001, I have posted my collection of oil field related photographs since there weren't many websites that dealt with the topic. Since 2001, I have posted oil field photos and videos from the United States. I began the website on the Geocities platform then switched to independent web hosting in 2003. My photos have been used in text books, trade show backdrops, brochures, and websites.
The oil patch has been a part of my life ever since I was a toddler and could crawl to my grandparents window in Clarksville City, Texas to watch the pumping unit in their yard go up and down. When the well was plugged in 1993, I decided that I needed to start taking photos of the wells before they disappeared forever. Now with over thousands of photos of oil fields, I have put a part of my collection on the website. In 2008, I began publishing videos on my YouTube channel, link is on the left.
