Events & Parties   

If you're looking for a way of archiving an event to last a lifetime and beyond, Dean is your man. But if you want instant – and forgettable - snaps to take away on the night, Dean cannot help you.

Like all great artists Dean creates something for the future, putting his heart and soul into every photographic book he creates and into every finished print he presents. His photographic books are records of the whole event in pictorial splendour, every page custom designed, every image crafted to perfection - and will be cherished enough to be passed on as heirlooms.


Look Your Best! 

Dean’s prints are all hand retouched and printed. You won’t find any wrinkles for the ladies in any of my prints - just quality portraiture.

All books are custom made. Don't ask how many images go in to the book - the number used will be the number that shows your event off to its best. 

If portrait images are required as gifts these can be presented in personalised event folders. Each will receive a little TLC before they are presented - after all, everyone wants to look fantastic - a few pounds lighter or a few years younger!
