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".


"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!"
Miss Jennifer Massey

``Dean, It's amazing how quickly you can forget how tiny and precious babies are in those first weeks. We really really love our pictures! ``We can't thank you enough for your time and creativity, for your artistic talent, and for capturing such special moments with our beautiful son.

““Look we know we are biased but seriously Sam is amazing in our photos! We am just so happy with them!  The one with him squashed up in the hammock  made me cry he’s so gorgeous in it! Thank you so much Dean we will have these forever to remind us how tiny our little cheeky chops was and how special that first week was!
