Dean McCartney has been a professional stills photographer since graduating from the Victorian College of the Arts in 1996. Delivering hundreds of jobs for magazines and a diverse range of commercial and government clients, he consistently delivers the highest quality photography for clients and creative agencies. His portfolio covers editorial, corporate, advertising and documentation photography and sources and shoots stock imagery as a cost effective solution for clients and is skilled at reproducing specific looks and lighting to match brand standards or existing imagery.


Dean McCartney expanded his still photography practice to incorporate film and video in 2010 and has worked extensively with Bauer Media (formerly Australian Consolidated Press) to deliver video content through their transition to app-based magazine platforms. Interviews with sports stars and others have formed a central part of this work.
