AKA DIGITAL DEAN
I’ve always had an eye for beautiful thinks as long as I can remember! Raised on a hobby farm in Vernon, British Columbia, it seems fitting that I’d settle back in my home town surrounded by the beautiful vistas of the Okanagan Valley. In 2001, with my background in electrical & computer technology, I discovered, and honoured my true calling by starting a full time photography business.
It all started by utilizing my engineering background to research and implement a new digital technique. It allowed me to create super high resolution panoramic images of the landscape, and once I learned to print them too, I was able to sell them out of a local gallery and frame shop. Through continual refining of the process and upgrading to the latest digital equipment and software, my landscape work now sells throughout the valley mostly as custom sized art pieces for homes, offices, and commercial spaces.
With one revenue stream not being enough to survive, I expanded upon my new found natural talent and evolved into the multi-faceted award winning photographer that I am today. A lifetime of experience, skills, and exacting standards became a powerful combination that enables me to create the quality commercial images and fine art landscapes that you see today.
Through this humbling process I earned the unshakable name of “Digital Dean” because of my expertise and passion for new technology. Two years later it finally gave in and renamed the business Digital Dean Photography, and at present I cater to both regular and the most discerning clients over Western Canada out of my home studio and gallery. With a large selection of lighting equipment, backup cameras, radio transmitters, professional software, and a four wheel drive, I have everything necessary to complete small jobs, all the way to very large on-location commercial photo shoots.
