Dean Riggott has been photographing Minnesota’s third-largest city for decades. His Rochester photo stock includes images of the city’s skyline, the world-renowned Mayo Clinic buildings, the city’s many chapels, restaurants, bike paths and monuments, Silver Lake, Mayowood Mansion, The Plummer House, Chateau Theatre, Quarry Hill and St. Marys Hospital.
All are available for use in advertisements, billboards, brochures, annual reports, business plans, marketing brochures, publications and web sites. Dean’s Rochester photographs are also available as prints in standard or custom sizes.
Dean’s photography career began as a teenager when his father, Don Riggott, a professional photographer himself, gave Dean a Pentex K1000 for his 14th birthday. Dean has been photographing his native city ever since and today holds the largest stock portfolio of Rochester images, many of which are included in two of his best-selling photo books: “Rochester: The Images,” (1997) and “Rochester Minnesota: A Visual and Historic Journey” (2004). Dean’s Rochester images and photo books are often given as gifts to visiting dignitaries and used to promote the city by corporations, businesses and organizations, including Mayo Clinic, IBM, Rochester Convention & Visitors Bureau, Rochester Chamber of Commerce and the Mayor’s office.
Many of Dean’s Rochester and rural life images are also part of Mayo Clinic’s permanent collection.
His images, whether in black and white or color, provide a unique visual perspective of Rochester, a city repeatedly highlighted in Money-magazine's "Best Places to Live" index.
Dean Riggott has done an artful job of photographing Rochester’s unique character, allowing us to see and share the finest the city has to offer. Whether you’ve spent a day or a lifetime in Rochester, I’m sure you’ll see it in a new way after viewing Dean’s images.
