Growing up in New Mexico and Texas, Dean was exposed to some of the most wonderful landscape scenes in the USA. But it was not until he left the United States Air Force that Dean discovered photography. Dean is recognized for his innovative and unique style of Landscapes and Automotive photography and is regarded by many high-profile collectors throughout the world.
Dean Kirkland has quickly become a highly accomplished commercial photographer and television and film director by combining his keen visual eye to unusual and powerful subject matter. His unique style and simplistic approach have allowed him to transition from an “A-List” photographer to a well-respected filmmaker with an esteemed client list that includes the Nordstrom, Home Depot, Lamborghini, Clint Eastwood and Martin Sheen.
In early 2016 Dean started experimenting with aerial photography of beaches and landscapes. His images quickly became a hit with the locals and tourists of Laguna Beach. His prints and books are now available through the Indianapolis 500 Museum and the Steve Adam Art Gallery in Laguna Beach, CA.
