About Dean McDonald

about image
Hi, my name is Dean, and I am a professional family portrait photographer based in Bamber Bridge, Preston, Lancashire.

I’ve been taking pictures for well over 30 years now. I grew up in a family where my fathers and grandfathers hobby was photography and I remember my grandfather used the bath to develop his photographs, I also remember the grief my grandmother gave him over the stains he left in the enamel from the process.

I was fortunate enough to inherit their love for the photographic image, and thanks to them my passion for photography began as a 10 year old boy.

The times and the techniques have changed over the years but the end results are the same. The requirements of today’s clients have changed, but in the end the result is the same, a perfectly printed image capturing a single moment in time.

My profession is the best profession in the world, I get to FREEZE TIME!. I capture forever memories you’ll be proud to hang on your walls for years to come. The quality of my work will literally last a lifetime, I guarantee it.

                             *MY 100% QUALITY GUARANTEE*

I am that sure of the quality and longevity of my work that I can make this promise "If any image ever becomes defective, I will fix it or replace it for free and with absolutely no cost to you".



"Dean made the whole family group feel really comfortable during the photo session. It was good fun, he even gave the dog some treats! Viewing the photos on the projector was really helpful, seeing the photo in a large frame helped us decide!What's this item about? What makes it interesting? Write a catchy description to grab your audience's attention..."

We can highly recommend Dean Photography, he is a total professional. The kids enjoyed it that much they want to go back next weekend. He took lots of photos individually and family he was not trying to rush (as a lot of Photographers do). His wife made us drinks and chatted to us whilst the kids at their shoots done.. The pictures are amazing,( we want them all). Thank you very much Dean. I will be passing your details on to family and friends 5*

“We all enjoyed our portrait sitting, even those of us that hate having our photos taken, the kids in particular, we found, enjoyed the whole sitting and have become accomplished posers. We would highly recommend Dean for his professionalism and his ability to put the most nervous of us at our ease. The appointment to look at the finished products was truly brilliant and the photos were wonderful. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable experience.;)”

“Felt totally comfortable in the studio with Dean. Photos were shot very tastefully during maternity shoot. Great ideas for the newborn shoot that I wouldn’t have thought of myself, and Dean was very patient with our little lady that wouldn’t cooperate for the most part! Got there in the end and totally happy with the shots – Thanks Dean!”
