Orcatek Photography

If it were up to Dean Farrell, he would always have a camera in his hand. As a photographer at Orcatek Photography, Dean's mission is not to just capture an image. When he points his camera at a person, object, or landscape, he wants to reveal a "new point of view," and in a sense transform his subjects without having to trade in one of his wishes from the wood nymph whose life he once saved. His artistic philosophy translates into a physical determination to take the best photo possible, which he'll shoot by climbing over obstacles or even crawling in the dirt. Dean demonstrates this philosophy and passion for photography through his studio's diverse menu of services. He takes striking, black-and-white photos of newborns, intimate close-up shots of mothers-to-be, and candid portraits of couples and seniors from unconventional angles. His specialty—boudoir and retro pinup shoots—swing from tasteful high-angle shots of subjects tangled in sheets to playful costumed poses pulled straight from the 1940s.

Not one to keep his techniques secret, Dean shares his knowledge on multiple topics during workshops that encompass both fundamentals and advanced lighting and composition skills. Workshops venture outside the realm of photography to video workshops help budding filmmakers capture better footage.
