farm life

Photographer Dean Riggott doesn’t rely on tales to tell the story of rural life in Minnesota. Instead, he painstakingly documents life in America’s Heartland through his camera’s lens.

Selections of Dean’s farming images have been featured in exhibits around the state, including the Rochester Art Center and Bloomington Art Center. He is an exclusive member of the nation’s largest agricultural photo stock agency, Grant Heilman Photography. Dean’s farming and agricultural photography has been featured nationwide in advertisements, brochures, award-winning annual reports, business plans and proposals, marketing brochures and a wide variety of publications, including “Successful Farming.” Minnesota Corn Growers Association, AMPI and SEMA Implement are also regular clients of Dean’s.

His images capture the simple pleasures and the complexities that are all too familiar to today’s farmers. With nature’s pristine majesty as a backdrop, Dean’s photographs record the mysterious power that lures people to the land.

His photographs chronicle the men, women, children and animals who call the countryside home.

From his photo book on rural life in Minnesota to his plethora of stock photos, Dean’s love of the land and the people who live there is evident.

Dean is a technically proficient shooter, but at least as importantly, Dean quickly picks up on the look and feel that we're after and delivers the goods. He's comfortable taking client input and direction, but also has the experience and the talent to take that direction and work on his own - with great results. Dean is a talented and easy-to-work-with shooter and I recommend him.
