Jennifer Dana Deane is an award-winning photographer, optioned screenwriter, visual artist, and author. Her photographs have been exhibited at the Naples Museum of Art as well as many art shows throughout Florida, and her architectural photography has appeared in national and international books and magazines including Architectural Digest, Condé Nast publications and Trends.
In her early years, before finding a home behind the camera, Jennifer studied Method Acting at the Lee Strasberg Theater & Film Institute in NYC. After earning a B.A. in English from Allegheny College in Meadville, Pennsylvania, Jennifer went on to pursue a photography degree from the Southeast Center of Photographic Studies. In photography school, she received scholarships from companies such as Fuji Film USA and the Professional Photographers Association of America, in addition to working as the Staff Photographer for Daytona State College and freelancing for United Press International at the Daytona Speedway. Immediately after graduating with highest honors, Jennifer was hired by the Walt Disney World Photography department to photograph advertising campaigns, celebrities, and motion picture stills on sound stages.
After Disney, Jennifer opened a studio in Naples from where she based an architectural photography business throughout the Southwest Florida building boom of the late 90s and early 2000s. This work sparked her interest in ancient design and history which led her to photograph in over 23 European countries. Currently, Jennifer divides her time between Florida and New York City while writing and designing from her laptop computer.
