Jennifer Dana Deane is an award-winning fine art and commercial photographer, 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 Media publications and Trends.
Jennifer began her study of art and design at Allegheny College in Meadville, Pennsylvania. After earning a B.A. in English, she went on to pursue a photography degree from the Southeast Center of Photographic Studies. In photography school, Jennifer 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 inspired Jennifer’s interest for ancient cultures which led her to photograph city and landscapes in over 23 European countries.
Currently, Jennifer divides her time between Florida and New York City while writing and designing from her laptop computer.
