Elise Derwin is a professional editorial and commercial photographer based in Darwin NT.
After Elise completed a Bachelor of Design (Photomedia), travelled across the other side of the world and became a teacher she wanted to try something entirely different to life in Sydney. This prompted her to travel to the Top End of Australia for a new challenge in the sweaty tropics.
Derwin moved to Darwin in 2011 and began work as an NT News photographer shortly after and has pursued a career in photojournalism. In a short space of time she has produced a considerable portfolio of Top End-related work, and has travelled extensively on assignment in the NT. Derwin received 2013 News Corp News Awards Photojournalist of the year nomination for her body of work with the NT News.
Elise also works for NOOK Events as a music photographer and covers the acts they bring to the Top End. Some of the acts include Gomez, Violent Soho, The Rubens, Ball Park Music and many more.
