ARTIST Derek Dandridge better known as "Specs". A Detroit native who currently attends Eastern Michigan University. Specs is 24-year-old and has been doing cinematography/photography for about three years(2018).

"If I had to put a genre on my photography, it would be reality. I like to capture people in the moment whether they’re in some type of euphoric moment or even thinking about their next move. I feel capturing people naturally has more power than poses in a sense because it’s their natural state at that point in time. When you’re passionate about something, the money will come but I do it for the art of capturing things whether it’s photos or footage. Art is like culture and it shouldn’t be taken lightly," said Specs.
