Derrick Larr joined Northern Michigan’s News Leader in March of 2016 as a Photojournalist. Derrick graduated from Central Michigan University with a Bachelor of Science degree in the field of education in 2005.
Although photojournalism was not his original area of expertise, he absolutely loves coming to work every day and being able to help tell the many wonderful stories of the people of Northern Michigan. “I leave here loving what I did that day, not knowing where I’ll be going tomorrow, and hardly being able to wait to find out.”
When he isn’t chasing stories with his camera, Derrick enjoys spending time with his wife, Shannon, and their 3 children, Austin, Connor, and Clarabelle. Their weekends are filled with camping, golfing, hunting, fishing, and playing with their Great Dane, Sable.
“Since I began this amazing career I have yet to have the same day twice…and I’m loving every minute of it.”
