Welcome to The Viewfinder

Welcome. My name is Greg Derr. I like many of you love photography. I’ve spent my whole life seeking out the best angles for images, mostly on the South Shore of Boston. My images appear daily in the Patriot Ledger. I have also published two books,

Boston’s South Shore and Plymouth at it’s Best (Commonwealth Editions). As a photojournalist I cover a wide variety of assignments for the Ledger, taking me all across the region, state and country. Sometimes overseas.
