About Deano M.

My professional photography career started in 1982 as an assistant to Mr. Richard Noble Studio on Melrose Ave. in Los Angeles, California. It was an incredible, creative & amazing studio to be part of. Richard is a legendary photographer whose work graced the covers of all the magazines & billboards for legendary films & print campaigns for 5 decades. His work included the famous "Book of Days" of Virginia Slims Cigarettes' yearly calendar & world wide print campaign & also for timeless and legendary movie posters with Director Clint Eastwood & the movie "The Untouchables" & Bo Jackson's book cover which later on became a famous poster for Nike. Chelsea, New York City was the next stop on my journey in 1986 as the assistant to Ms. E.J. Camp for Rolling Stone Magazine & numerous amazing movie posters & campaigns for legendary films like Top Gun & many amazing others. As i continue my photography career, I had the opportunity to become good friends with another photographer Andrew Eccles who asked me to be a 2nd assistant to Annie Leibovitz. Being in Annie's team gave me the opportunity to hone my skills & it paved my way to work in the business professionally. Moving forward in my career, my photographer friend Richard Imrie asked me to join him to work for famous British magazines like Harpers & Queen and Glamour shooting majestic location shoots in the West Indies Islands like Guadalupe Island & St. John Island. In 1989, I started my solo photography career and went on my own. I was privileged to be tapped by Swatch watch to photograph their worldwide ad campaign for the next 2 years. I also did Cosmopolitan, Spiegel, Mademoiselle, Glamor, Self, Nike, National Football League, The American Leather Commission and Burson-Marsteller ad campaigns. After exploring New York and its wide array of opportunities for my photography career for 15 years, and offer to work with Billy Poveda for the Oil Factory Films in California came. He also introduced me to Al Masocco who works for Epic Records/Sony Music and this started my career as director of photography for the hit Bed of Roses by Streaming Trees on the MTV show 120 Minutes.

I had been a student of photography from Deano Mueller for over 3 years now! With all his teaching experiences from The New York Film Academy on the Universal Studios lot, as well as working as a Professional Photographer since 1989, Deano really knows how to share his experiences, skills, & wisdom with total understanding of sharing his knowledge of photography! By far, Deano has been the best teacher that I had the pleasure to work with and has made me a much better photographer and also because Deano understood my wants & needs of what I really want to learn about photography through his knowledge & experiences!

He is one photographer who’s passion for his craft is up to the high heavens! He can talk all day & share his professional knowledge & expertise on photography. His shots are really amazing & all worthy to be framed or made into murals.
