Environmental portraits for corporate, commercial and editorial use are a specialty of Dean Riggott Photography, based out of Rochester, Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota.

Dean combines his artistic vision, professional experience and photographic knowledge with today’s technology to create lasting images for use in annual reports, books, brochures, business plans, mailings, web sites and publications.

Whether working for a non-profit organization or a Fortune 500 company, Dean’s goal is to create images that have impact, evoke emotion and reveal the character of his subjects. His work has been featured in exhibits around the state, including the Rochester Art Center and Bloomington Art Center. Many of Dean’s compelling portraits adorn the walls of banks, hotels, colleges and hospitals, as well as private residences.

His portrait work also has been featured in editorial publications across the country, including Successful Farming magazine, MSPMagazine, eServer Magazine, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Minnesota Medical Magazine and Sierra Magazine.

Dean often works for advertising agencies, shooting portraits for annual reports, college view books, marketing materials and web sites.

Authentic brand-creative is desperately needed today. Dean gets that. Dean gets it because he, himself, is a genuine, authentic person and a gifted storyteller. He always finds a way to capture a moment with the subject that goes well beyond great lighting and technique. Dean captures authentic moments that engage the subject's personality and brings their story to life.
