- Dean Bradshaw PhotographyPhotographer, 2008 - present
I'm drawn to storytelling, character and well-crafted, stylized imagery.
I'm attracted to the 'why' of things, the essential ingredients that comprise a story, a brand or a character - those elements below the surface which define the exterior. I enjoy immersing viewers in imagery that takes them into a world outside the ordinary. I'm fascinated by narrative, but find inspiration in the real world where things can be equally, if not more, peculiar. More than anything, I enjoy ideas - but realize that they are nothing without equal part execution.
My wife and I live by the ocean in Santa Monica and I create imagery out of my studio in Venice, California.
Select clients include: American Express, Acer, Diageo, Asics, National Geographic Channel, PWC, Wrangler Workwear.
