Dean has been a fantastic employee to work with over the past two years and has been nothing short of exceptional from his very first shift. His punctuality, skill set and attention to detail are second to none. Dean is a great team player and his interaction with staff members and customers alike has been a huge asset to the company. I would have no hesitation in recommending in for the role in question.

“Thank you Dean for sharing the pictures you took of Alice in Wonderland.

Each picture was beautifully shot and thanks to you, I now have a set of great memories from the show. Thank you very much for a lovely set of pictures”

Theyre great shots, deserving of a good testimonial!

I have just had this come through from a friend of mine at church. I did some photos at a childrens present party for her. A very happy customer i think.

I’ve finally finished the Powerpoint and have had great fun making it! You’ve captured so many special moments; lots that I had only heard about (like Tim being captured by Adah!). Hope you like the presentation. 🙂

Having worked with Dean on various projects in and outside of photography, I can tell you that his attitude, communication and attention to detail makes him a joy to work with. Regarding live music in particular, he is always ready to be creative and adapt to get those professional looking shots. Dean is incredibly a nice guy and will certainly help you get the most out of your shoot.

Was great working with Dean at our O2 Academy headline show back in November last year. Met him at a charity event and was impressed by his work, invited him to our show and we were not disappointed. Took outstanding photos of us in action, capturing the mood and vibe of the show perfectly. Very nice guy to work with, got along really well… all for a great price too!

“they’re brilliant shots, a picture tells a thousand stories right there, over the moon you’ve caught the moment!

Dean’s photos look fantastic in our new house, Dean helped our initially Shy children to relax and has captured them in a totally natural way which is just what we were looking for. Can’t recommend his work highly enough! Thanks Dean!!!!

Mobeen Arshad From Standby Method Acting Studio


I took my first actors head-shots the other day with Dean. It was a great experience and Dean was very helpful throughout. I would’ve taken these photos earlier but as my great grandma passed away I had to delay them. Dean was very understanding. Overall a fab collection of photos for my casting profiles. I hope to work again with Dean very soon and I hope he starts doing photography full time as he is really talented and a good person too. Thanks a lot dean, see you again very soon I hope.


Suzy Dyson Professional Dancer
“I met Dean a few years ago at an event where he captured dance and movement shots for one of our dance crews, so when the opportunity arise to appoint a photographer for Elevate (Sheffield Dance based Club Night), there was no hesitation to reunite with Dean and invite him down as our photographer. Dean is a friendly, professional, hard working photographer, who shows passion and great care in this work. He produced amazing images for our event! I’ll be sure to recommend Dean and invite him back for next time!”




  1. Dean and Kirsty photographed my renewal of vows ceremony and what amazing pics I have received they show my day from start to finish and as I got married abroad the first time this was so important to me !! dean made each and everyone of my guest feel part of our special day and made sure he captured each and every guest in the most natural way possible. Ever special picture I wanted with specific people he accommodated and went above and beyond with ideas how to stand and organise everyone which was a big challenge lol everyone commented how professional dean was and I can’t say I haven’t got plenty off memory’s of my special day and I will never forget it have already booked dean again for my daughters first birthday cake smash shoot thanks again dean and Kirsty you guys were amazing highly recommend you to anyone wanting amazing pics and a professional service :))))

  2. I highly recommend Dean Stead Photography and here’s why……..

    We (myself, hubby, bro-in-law and sister-in-law) booked Dean as a surprise 70th birthday present for my father-in-law, who’s favourite saying is “take a picture!” Dean was amazing, he found the perfect spot outside of the meal venue for family and group shots to be taken. Looking at the results you wouldn’t guess they were taken at the start of December in the freezing cold, they look rather tropical and exotic, which is all down to Dean’s keen eye and people placement. Tbh I didn’t see Dean all that much due to his ability to mingle so well which has resulted in some amazing shots of the pre meal drinks. He even got some fantastic shots of the birthday cake and table set up. All of which will be perfect reminders for the father-in-law of his special day. Thank you Dean, job expertly done xx

  3. Excellent eye for detail, fantastic pictures and a highly professional approach whilst photographing my car at the Rowe-Mills wedding. Will recommend and spread the word, quality service.

  4. Our wedding day. 26.08.17
    Myself and my husband Robert would just like to say a big thank you to dean for being our photographer, can’t express how happy we are with all the time and effort you have put into our wedding photos.
    They are all beautiful and amazing. Thanks again.
    Mr & Mrs Holden
