Luxury Photography: If every picture is truly worth a thousand words, then doing a write-up on the photography of acclaimed photographer Derry Moore should be a fairly breezy assignment. Since 1990, Mr. Moore has been known as Derry Moore, the 12th Earl of Drogheda, a hereditary title passed to him by his late father that stems from the 17th century. Mr. Moore has appeared and addressed England's House of Lords.

Mr. Derry Moore's collection of photographs consists of houses, gardens, and intimate portraits of prominent personalities of the world. Mr. Moore's photographs have been published in numerous books, such as Inside the House of Lords; The Gardens of Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother; The Dream Come True, Great Houses of Los Angeles; The Englishman's Room; and Evening Ragas. Additionally, his photographs have been published in Architectural Digest; Town and Country; Country Life; The World of Interiors; and Vogue. The National Portrait Gallery of London currently features 37 portraits by Mr. Moore.

Queen Elizabeth, Princess Diana, Ronald Reagan, Nancy Reagan, David Bowie, and Indira Gandhi are just a few of the famous personalities who have posed for Mr. Moore. His photographs of Buckingham Palace are on the royal family's official website. A tribute to Moore is in the offing for fall 2006. Rizzoli, which is a prominent New York-based publishing house, is bringing out a retrospective of Moore's interiors photographs entitled Rooms. The book is going to feature an array of spectacular interiors that range from Charleston, the famed haunt of the Bloomsbury group, to India's Falaknuma Palace to Pauline de Rothschild's London residence to Chatsworth Hall, Derbyshire, which is purported to be the grandest of grandiose English country houses.

Mr. Derry Moore is available for commission to do portrait work. His picturesque website contains complete info on how to obtain prints, books and syndicate photos.
