Jennifer Dana Deane is an award-winning photographer and author. Her fine art photographs have been exhibited at museums as well as many art shows, while her architectural photography has appeared in magazines including Architectural Digest and Condé Nast Media publications. A storyteller of multiple mediums, Jennifer’s recent writing credits include placement in the 2018 Austin Film Festival Screenplay Competition.
Before finding a home behind the camera, Jennifer studied Method Acting at the Lee Strasberg Theater & Film Institute. After earning a B.A. in English from Allegheny College, she went on to pursue a degree in Photography Science from the Southeast Center of Photographic Studies where 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, architecture of new hotel properties, 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 2000s. This work launched Jennifer’s European city and landscape fine art photography project that has taken her to over 23 countries to date.
Whether taking pictures or writing pictures, Jennifer currently combines her storytelling skills in studio, in the field, and on the page.
