Daile Drevins

Director / Salt Design

What a breath of fresh air Dean is to the Brisbane photographic and design industry. For so long we have searched for a photographer who has a creative eye – and a personality! Corporate photography is an art in itself – made all the more challenging by the fact that most people don’t enjoy having their photo taken. Dean connects with people instantly, helping everyone involved feel relaxed and comfortable and ensuring that sought after golden image is captured. As all time Dean is professional, accountable and flexible, enabling us to achieve the photographic solution on time, on budget an most all – awesome in it’s presentation! I highly recommend Dean for any professional photographic project, and look forward to working with him again soon.

Dean has been fantastic to work with across a number of our clients, capturing a wide variety of fantastic images, be it landscapes or when working with talent who he quickly puts at ease with his relaxed persona. He has also proven to be very flexible in his approach, nothing is too hard and he is quick to find a solution to any situation put in front of him. Highly recommended.

So where do we start to formally thank you? Dean, your work is absolutely flawless. I regularly look at our photos and feel as though it’s the first time I’ve seen them. I always notice something new, no matter how small… a smile, a gesture, a moment, an expression. It’s all evidence of our perfect day. Many of our guests often refer to it as the “wedding of the year”. Of course, we agree and we’ve got the photos to prove it ! So thank you so much, we will never forget your talent, professionalism and style. Keep up the fabulous work. it’s so comforting to know our memories have been captured forever.

Brad and Lorraine Kleinschmidt

Wedding Clients

Our photos are divine! We had so much fun doing our location shots but during the ceremony I wasn’t even aware of where Dean was. It was so great not to feel like you have a camera in your face all day and still get the most beautiful intimate shots of the big day. We’ll be calling on Dean for our family portraits for sure.

Kate & Dave Whitson

Wedding Clients

Our wedding day was the most exciting day of our lives and you were there every step of the way capturing all the special moments. We can’t thank you enough! It was just like hanging out with another guest at our wedding, so it was easy to feel relaxed, we didn’t really feel like we were in front of a camera. The quality of the wedding album is exceptional, we are so pleased with it. We wanted our wedding day to be simply beautiful and relaxed – the beach, the flowers, the little church and of course the fashion. You captured all of this and it shows in every photo. The moments you captured make us smile every time we lay eyes on them, the memories you captured will be with us forever. Thank you.

Every singe aspect of the process was FABULOUS! I generally don’t like having my photo taken but this experience was so much fun. Than you so much Dean, I am stoked with the canvas prints.

Pauline and Allan MacKenzie

Studio Portraits

We were particularly impressed with the way that Dean engaged with our 4 year old son. He made the photo shoot fun and comfortable for him. As a result we now have some beautiful images of our little boy that we will cherish forever. Somehow Dean managed to capture a perspective or our son that is rarely seen by others.

Sierra and Simon

Portrait Shoot

We had so much fun doing the shoot, even Simon who is not a happy poser (usually likes to be behind the camera not in front) and we are both very pleased with our canvas prints and with the actual pictures we chose. Thank you.
