Using state-of-the-art digital equipment, Dean can provide immediate turnaround of ultra-high resolution images for same day evaluation and use from his on-location shoots. He brings the immediacy of a daily deadline photographer and couples it with the professional experience of being able to quickly understand the project and see how the images enhance the story or project.

Dean has specialized in editorial photography since 1991 when he started working in Rochester as a photojournalist for the Post-Bulletin, the daily newspaper in Minnesota’s third largest city. He also worked for the Post-Bulletin’s weekly specialty publications, Successful Business and Agri News newspapers, developing a reputation as a photographer who could get the right image in settings as diverse as a hog farm and a corporate board room.

Since then this Minnesota native has had his photography work featured in a wide range of magazines and news publications across the country, including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg News, Mpls-St Paul Magazine, Successful Farming Magazine, Flea Market-Style Magazine, IBM Systems Magazine, Sierra Magazine, etc.

I LOVE the shots you took in Oronoco! Love! And that word doesn't even fully capture just how much I adore the shots! Wowza! We need to work on another project together.
