Dean Shipley

Scenes By Dean is the photographic hobby of Dean Shipley. He has captured
photographic images for over 35 years. The hobby began with a 35 mm camera in 1980
and has continued into the digital age with a digital 35 mm camera.
With the thought that there is an image in all we see, even the mundane, he is always on
the lookout for a picture waiting to be captured. Through the camera, Dean shares his
unique views of our surroundings. His primary interest is nature, both animals and
landscapes, but also has an interest in inanimate objects. Occasionally a scene including
people is captured. One area that has yielded excellent photographic opportunities is
Cades Cove in the Great Smoky Mountains. Travel, night-time, and low-light
photography are other areas of prime interest. Most photographs are taken with natural
and available light.
