Hello. I'm Andy Dean.

I've been a professional photographer since the mid 80's. I studied photography throughout college as well. I thought shooting FILM was a blast. Digital photography has added such an instantaneous reward. As a graphic designer for over 20 years I found that I could shoot my own imagery and concepts. Soon came more and more client requests, and away we went. It's all been very exciting and rewarding.

My current equipment:
We are currently using the Canon 5D Mark II & III and the Canon 40D with 10.1 MP as back-up. My lenses are the 85mm f/1.2, a 24-105mm, an 18-50mm, 28-135mm, a 10-22mm Wide Angle, a 100mm Macro and a 70-200mm f4 - all Canon Lenses. We have an ever-growing collection of studio equipment (to my wife's dismay): Alien Bees strobes, Westcott and Alien Bees soft-boxes, reflectors (store bought and homemade), stands, backdrops and a bunch of other odd and ends. We can't ever seem to have enough. :) We also connect to my 17" Apple MacBook Pro to my camera whenever possible during my studio work. My post production work-flow consists of Adobe's Lightroom, Photoshop, Illustrator and Bridge. The dictionary and thesaurus are always at my side as well for those elusive, but oh so important, keywords.

Thanks for visiting.
Andy
