Dean MacKay Photography doesn't want miss a thing.

I first started exploring photography while working in the music video business, and living in New York. When I made the move West, I brought my passion and inspiration along with me. After agreeing to photograph a friend’s wedding in 2010, I haven't looked back.
I enjoy long hikes in Yosemite and strolls around New York City. I savor the desert sunrises, and marvel at the stars. I cherish my time in Maine, with the boys I cared for. I look forward to visits from out-of-town friends. And, my favorite past times is watching the birds, bunnies, and squirrels right outside my window.
