When I was 19, I knew I wanted to be a photographer. I started training as a photographer in a portrait studio. At the time, it wasn’t clear that the direction was right, because the environment was too uninspiring for me. However, what did I discover? My empathy and how it is still an important tool for me when working with my customers. Studying communication design with a focus on photography in Dortmund showed me another passion: social issues and pure life. How to focus on people is still my passion today. Reportage became my medium.But craftsmanship and passion are not everything. A large photo production is not possible without professional organization. So it was good to get to know the other side: As an art buyer at Media Consulta, Berlin, I acquired my know-how in production, organization and budgeting. Four years in the BILD photo department followed. After a lot of learning, the time had come. You know the 10,000 hour rule? Well over 10,000 hours of photography had passed since I first tried to walk with the Polaroid camera: In 2014 I started my own business as a photographer. My focus: corporate branding and employer branding with a focus on the authentic portrayal of people in their environment.
I am an editorial and commercial photographer living and working in Austin, Texas with my husband and sweet daughters. At 13 I took my first darkroom class at the Southwest Center of Arts and Crafts in San Antonio. The moment I watched an image appear in the developer I knew that there was magic in photography and I wanted to know everything about that magic. I graduated in photography at the top of my class at St. Edward’s University where I learned how to be an artist from compassionate and beautiful teachers.

At Dean Lavenson Photography, Dean brings an utter passion to the set. He is a master with light and an absolute perfectionist. He is as giddy about photography today as when he was a student. And with that passion comes with over 25 years of experience. After graduating from Brooks Institute of Photography and freelancing in L.A. for a few years, Dean relocated his family from Santa Barbara, California to Louisville in 1989. He’s still trying to figure out how that happened. All he remembers is a big yellow Ryder truck with a matching yellow ’73 VW Bug in tow and his wife, Dianne, crying across every state line. Dean still dreams about the beach, but over the years he’s grown to love Louisville. As for how Dean first got started with a camera? Now that’s a long story. Let’s just say, he was on his way to becoming the next Wynton Marsellis. Lucky for Mr. Marsellis, Dean ended up in Beginning Photography as a high school senior. Ask him in person and he’ll give you the looooong version.

Jeff Herron studied commercial photography at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, Michigan, before relocating to South Florida to pursue his passion. For Jeff, it all started with light, lines and an innate fascination with how these two pillars of art and design translated into photography. Jeff was immediately inspired by the works of the New Topographics movement in the 1970’s with the highly formalized, almost banal aesthetic of man-made structures within a landscape. It resonated how they were able to capture those landscapes in a way that most people wouldn’t notice, even if they saw it on a daily basis. You can see the influence here under "Personal Work". Over the past 15 years, Jeff’s eye – coupled with his love of collaboration and dedication to his craft – has earned himself an impressive client base, spanning across the United States, the Caribbean, and beyond, including: Ritz-Carlton, Marriott, JW Marriott, Hyatt, Westin, Sheraton, AC Hotels, Knoll, CBT Architects, Siemens, Lumens, Couples Resorts, PGA Resort, OPL Hotels, Lloyd Loom, Sotheby’s, Christies, Columbia Sussex, Ett Hem Designs, Centex Construction, Bluegreen, and UBS Bank. His work has also been featured in numerous print publications such as Home Magazine, Gulfshore Life and Tropic Magazine.
For me, photography has always been about exploration. It’s about solving problems, whether it be creative or technical. It’s about learning new ways of seeing and being able to share that vision with the world. My process is based on authenticity and creating comfortable environments where real interactions can happen. It’s about enjoyment, about seeing people enjoy what I make, and about learning which lens each project or client require me to look through. I am a creative thinker with a blue collar work ethic. I work hard and expect those around me to do the same, but I make sure we’re all having fun. I am patient, flexible and understanding and I know how to tell stories that relate to real people. Located in Pennsylvania. Working in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, New York, DC, Baltimore. Available for assignment worldwide. I like to travel.
I’m a portrait photographer based out of Lander, Wyoming and the Rocky Mountain west. My focus lies within commercial (lifestyle and product) and editorial/documentary photography, with a special emphasis on creating image libraries for social, digital, and print advertising.

Hi… Clark here. I’m a people and location specialist based in small town Maryland; but my sense of adventure, and thankfully my clients, take me pretty much anywhere and everywhere. I cut my teeth in the still photography world where I thrive, and more recently I’ve developed my talent as a filmmaker & director. In addition to enjoying the people and exploration, one of my favorite parts of the process is pairing strong visuals & powerful moments with the soundscape that plays in my mind. I’m a huge fan of road trips, backroads, and getting lost. When I’m not working I like to ride my bikes, spend time in the mountains, or stare at a map and find a new place to get lost. I’ve been blessed to have been doing this gig for quite a while, but my dad still wants to know what I’m going to do when I grow up. I’m still hopeful that I won’t have to.
