“Dean did a complex and technical photo shoot for our agency this summer and was phenomenal. Professional, detailed, efficient, and delivered exceptionally high quality, and beautiful images. He listened to the client and was great at any additional direction we threw his way. He also has a great team of partners that assist him during the process. He over delivered and made our team look just as good. The client is very happy. We highly recommend Dean and look forward to working with him in the future.”

Jackie Nelson, Olive & Co

“Dean is one of the top photographers I have worked with. Dean was such a professional! He knew exactly what he was doing and would ensure the shot was perfect. I have only received raving reviews on the images! Dean is not only a master at his craft but his personality is great. He made the models feel very comfortable, to where I have received emails expressing how nice it was working with Dean and how comfortable they felt during the shoot!”

Abigail Johnson, Surescripts

“Authentic brand-creative is desperately needed today. Dean gets that. Dean gets it because he, himself, is a genuine, authentic person and a gifted storyteller. He always finds a way to capture a moment with the subject that goes well beyond great lighting and technique. Dean captures authentic moments that engage the subject’s personality and brings their story to life.”

Carter Romo, Reve Consulting

“Our agency, John Ward Solutions, has made Dean our “go to” location photographer. Why? Phenomenal results, minimal hassle… and always a pleasure to spend time with. Hard to beat that combo!”

John Ward, John Ward Solutions

“We recently worked with Dean to photograph a variety of aspects of our business, Flapdoodles Homemade Ice Cream. Dean was very attentive to our ideas and easy to work with. Most importantly, we are very pleased with the photographs he took and are excited to use them to promote our products and stores. We highly recommend Dean for business/food photography needs and would definitely work with him again.”

Matt Tierney, Flapdoodles Ice Cream

“Testimonial? No way. Why should I tell you that Dean Riggott is the hardest working photographer I know; that he’ll stand on his head to get you the right shot? Hey, if I tell you that he’s someone you can trust with clients and that he seems more like part of our team than a vendor, then the next time I call him he’ll be busy working for you. Forget it.”

Bruce Schultz, Brand Outfitters

“I hired Dean to capture images of corn and soybean harvest for our dealership. Dean is a rare talent. He turns everyday moments into art. If you’re looking for professional, timely and modern work, look no further. Dean is our go-to photographer when we need professional images. “

Maggie McCall, SEMA Equipment

“Dean has been a fantastic photographer to work with. We recently hired him for a one day corporate photo shoot. From start to finish he exhibited exceptional skill and professionalism. Dean did a great job of keeping all of the employees relaxed, making it a collaborative environment and bringing the best out of everybody’s unique personalities. The photos exceeded our expectations and we couldn’t be happier with the results and our experience working with him. We will absolutely work with Dean again in the future and highly recommend him!”

Erik Johnson, Aggressive Hydraulics

“For several years Dean has taken the law firm photographs we use in our print and webpage marketing. He is clever, creative, fun and easy to work with. He will give good advice, and also listen and take into account the distinct personalities and preferences our attorney staff want to express with their images.”

Carol Pasternik, Klampe Delehanty & Morris

“Dean helped our dental practice out with some casual and professional shots. We ended up with dozens of “keepers” to use for our website, social media etc. Dean was great to work with and really has an artistic eye for stand out photos. Edits and turnarounds were very timely as well.”

Jake Peters, Family Dentist Tree

“So happy with the entire process! Photos were professional/classy and fit the look of our new website perfectly. Highly recommend Dean Riggott Photography!”

Bob Nickelson, Nickelson Painting

“I hired Dean to shoot and direct a photo shoot at a vet hospital. We gave him creative direction and a shot list, hooked him up with a contact at the hospital, and he took it from there. He gave us exactly what we were looking for, and handled himself in a professional manner with our customer. I would definitely hire him again.”

Renee Thorington, IDEXX

“We have used Dean for many photo shoots over the years. He does an excellent job he is one of the best photographers we’ve worked with”

Mike Pruett, MLT Group

“Dean produced high-quality work for some profiles we were doing within our publication on some of the top professionals in the greenhouse industry. I would describe him as highly professional, timely, and reasonable photographer. Loved the quality in his photos and was able to capture some great photos for our publication. Highly recommend for an affordable and high-quality photoshoot.”

Allison Krieg, GIE Media

“I worked with Dean on a casino shoot and had such a great experience working with him!  From estimating to shooting to wrap, every interaction was friendly, professional and en pointe.  Dean cares about everything he does whether it be big or small (from grabbing coffee for a crew member to meticulously lighting a shot).  Attention to details from photographers like Dean make the difference from having a good shoot to having a great shoot!  I can’t wait to work with him again!”

“Dean is a technically proficient shooter, but at least as importantly, Dean quickly picks up on the look and feel that we’re after and delivers the goods. He’s comfortable taking client input and direction, but also has the experience and the talent to take that direction and work on his own – with great results. Dean is a talented and easy-to-work-with shooter and I recommend him.”

“Dean was great to work with – we used him in a modern manufacturing setting and he did a fantastic job capturing the machines AND people who make our business what it is. Plus, he worked his tail off during our onsite shoots and produced hundreds of stunning images. Would definitely hire him again.”

Charlotte Boyd, Graco, Inc

“Words cannot express my gratitude for the awesome images of our products. Sincerely, the entire experience was fun, educational, familiar and comfortable. I am most appreciative of your insights and tips to make our products look their best.”

“Dean did an incredible job with our product photography and the candid employee photos were outstanding. Dean is great to work with and is very personable. I look forward to working with him again in the future.”

Shane McCallister, Pure Humidifer

“Dean is one of the most experienced and talented photographers that I have worked with. Beyond his technical expertise and keen aesthetic sense he thinks and delivers beyond the scope of the project. He has a natural instinct for capturing food dishes in striking compositions. Most importantly, from the perspective of an art director, I appreciate collaborating with down-to-earth, passionate and curious people. Dean is one of them!”

“I’ve hired and directed Dean for several client location shoots. Dean has always been professional, while delivering outstanding quality and scope of images. He’s very creative and works quickly while on location. And of course, he’s always on time and on budget too.”

John Bement, John Bement LLC

Kari Hennager, Fingerprint Design

“Great working with Dean. Clearly an expert at what he does, but also makes for a comfortable environment and works diligently to meet his client’s needs. Recommend wholeheartedly.”

“Dean has been absolutely phenomenal to work with. His attention to detail, efficient turn-around and ability to follow a detailed shot list has resulted in exactly what was needed each time he has photographed projects for us. His documentary-style approach allows us to visually explain our solutions through the use of imagery within our marketing materials. We look forward to working with Dean on future projects and would highly recommend him.”

Amber Eustice, Ellingson Companies

“I am a Retoucher in Minneapolis. I have worked with Dean since about 2008. He is a great commercial photographer, with some innovative techniques to light homes and commercial buildings he photographs. I would highly recommend him. He also has done great work with product photography and people.”

Bob Weideman, Digital Illusion

“Dean is the consummate professional who can adapt quickly to any business format. Our advisory team wanted a set of pictures that differentiated our level of professionalism and Dean made it happen!”

David Wittenberg, Stifel

“Dean’s technical and artistic ability is superb. But when it comes to commercial photography, being able to relate to the clients’ needs, then translating them into a great photo, is even more important. Our experience with Dean has been top-notch. He works well with clients – really listening to them, offering options and solutions.”
