Jennifer Derbach - Photographer

Jennifer Derbach


Jennifer loves to learn through experiences and is passionate about sharing her love of nature through the art of photography.

Growing up in a military family, Jennifer has gotten used to being on the move. After attending Carleton University and graduating with a degree in Sociology, she decided to stay in Ottawa and begin her career there.

Her passion for photography started on board the Ocean Endeavor when she completed the Newfoundland Circumnavigation expedition in 2016. At home, she gained experience through sports and concert photography. She has photographed everything from professional sports teams to big acts like Sarah McLachlan, Alessia Cara, and the Boston Ballet Company.

She never left her love of the outdoors behind and also continued to focus on capturing beautiful landscapes and wildlife. During the pandemic, she decided to do more with her photography and launched a successful buff company. Each buff is hand made by Jennifer and features different photos from her portfolio.

Whether it is volunteering her time to collect data and facilitate protection for species at risk or driving injured animals to rehabilitation facilities, her spare time is spent closely connected to nature and she can often be found at a local conservation area.
