About Dean McDonald

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.

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!

Great to come back after 15 years (wedding). Very relaxed and professional environment. Dean produces photos that we would never have been able to do. The mannerisms of Dean towards the kids were exceptional

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.

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!

Dean had plenty of ideas given with regards to props and settings. Our session went quickly and Dean managed to keep our toddler entertained the whole time!

Dean is a very relaxed photographer, so we were instantly put at ease. He is great with children too, making our 4 years old really enjoy the photo shoot. He was even a little upset when it was over!

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 were very impressed with Dean’s creative structuring of the session, bringing the best and varied poses out for Max. Max was put at ease and enjoyed himself, as did his mum, Laura, and great granddad. We thought the presentation of the session and Dean’s recommendation guided us to make the best choices for the portfolio. Would certainly recommend Dean for his professionalism and excellent work!

We came with my parents and sister (the Fullicksarah), and we enjoyed the photographic session with Dean, great fun has by all, he even managed to put my dad at ease. We were very impressed with the quality of the photos, especially the one of my two children and to see all of us together as a family (which doesn’t happen so often now) was truly wonderful.

Me, my partner and my son went for a photo shoot with dean. He made us feel very welcome and was great with my son, he made him feel very comfortable. He is very professional and his studio is such high quality. He is a brilliant photographer and would definitely recommend him to anyone!! When we went to view the pictures they were all very good quality, from single portraits to family ones, they are great!! The pictures were brilliant and couldn’t fault any of them. Definitely the best photographer I’ve ever been to!

We arrived for our one-hour photo session with our six-year-old and two newborns. Dean made us feel immediately at ease and dealt with the session in a very friendly and professional manner. With two newborns, it was inevitable that we would have interruption ’s, Dean didn’t rush us at all we couldn’t recommend him enough. Great with the children, made us feel welcome and at home.
