Austin Powers Meets Monte Zucker

Wedding photography can be a grim business, which is why the world needs derekpyephotography, online home of the “multi-award-winning” Derek Pye. “It is generally accepted that I am the best wedding photographer working in the U.K. today,” says Mr. Pye—to hell with false modesty—and indeed even the briefest look at his portfolios, diary, and tips makes it clear that this is no ordinary artist of the lens.

In one of many fascinating glimpses into Derek’s dashing lifestyle, we see that even top pros occasionally drop the ball: “If anyone at the wedding of Yetunde and Danjuma last Saturday at Peckham registry office has found a small black pouch containing several 512MB compact flash cards please return to me ASAP. Please do not erase the cards!”

Visitor comments seem evenly split between fawning praise and, well, otherwise: “You are a moron . . . abysmal standards . . . deserve horsewhipping” etc. Genius or charlatan? You be the judge.

OMG. That's the funniest thing I've ever seen. This sit CAN NOT
be for real.

Everything from the cheesy naked-chick clip art to the self portrait that looks like it was taken at the Del Boca Vista Shuffleboard courts just screams parody.

I hope.

I think Muktar is the real genius behind Derek Pye.
