My name is Dereck Willis, and I'm a graduate of NC State
University. The past few years have been very dynamic
times in my life. I am just an average guy trying to
make a career in computers. Let me rephrase that. .
.I am a computer "freak". My wife is convinced
that I am plugged into the "Matrix" (makes
sense if you've seen the movie). Yes, that's right,
I'm a hardware and software geek. I really enjoy working
with computers, and taking pictures! I also now offer
Video Slide Shows, which
incorporate pictures with background music and narration.
Unlike standard slide shows, mine offer full motion
(panning, scanning, etc). These videos make a great
present for any family member and can be something to
treasure for many generations to come. Sound interesting?

As far as technology products go, the computer is by
far my favorite product. I have 2 laptops and 2 desktops.
I mostly use my Fujitsu C-6581 laptop connected via
802.11b wireless network to my router and cable modem.
This allows me to use the couch as my office. . .very
cool, and very comfortable! I highly recommend the Fujitsu
laptops for their excellent build quality and reliability.
My newest desktop is a custom-built AMD Athlon 1700+
with over 200GB of storage and 1GB of DDR-RAM. It is
a power-house! It works great for transferring videos,
photo retouching and much more.
Digital Photography and More
Who would have ever thought that my purchase of a Nikon
Coolpix 800 would stir so much interest (at least for
me)? Believe it or not, my this is my first real camera!
I have always had an "eye" for photography,
but I do not possess the patience to wait for pictures
to get developed. I purchased the Nikon in the fall
of 1999 as a Christmas present for my wife and myself.
I was immediately intrigued by the "instant gratification"
that digital cameras provide. Before I knew it, I was
having photos published in Digital Photographer and
winning "Photo of the Day" on sites such as
Now I am planning to expand my horizons by creating
websites. Also check out my Video
Slide Show and Photo Services.
These are great methods of preserving priceless photos
for future generations to enjoy! Who knows, maybe one
day I'll be a full-time photographer, but for now I'll
stick to doing what I know. If you have any questions
about my pictures please contact me.
