Featured Photographer: Dean Homer



"Find the best fashion photographer, someone who really excites you. Ask to assist them, even if it's for free."

How did you get to where you are now in your career?

I got my first break by assisting a fashion photographer. I think doing an apprenticeship was better than the college work I did. College gave me the technical knowledge but working for a photographer taught me to see the pictures. Creativity is the magic of great fashion photography and some times the technical stuff gets in the way.

What person has been your inspiration in life? Who is your hero?

My inspiration comes from the great artists, Picasso, Vincent van Gogh, Joan Miró, Andy Warhol and recently Banksy. Art was always my favourite class but I fell in love with photography. My all time favourite photographers are Irving Penn and Herb Ritts. They produced some of the most classic images I’ve ever seen.

Do you feel like you've met your goals and are successful?

I don't think I'll ever reach my goals. It seems every time I get close to my goal, it moves. I'm in a constant state of improvement. I’m always trying to better the last project I did. Which is probably a good thing, right?

If you had to do it over again, what would you change?

No, I don't think so. Right or wrong, it's an evolutionary process.

What advice would you give someone who is young and wants to have the position such as yours one day?

Find the best fashion photographer, someone who really excites you. Ask to assist them, even if it's for free. It’s well worth the investment in the long run.

How do you stay inspired?

I’m inspired all the time. Magazines in years past were a great source of ideas but these days with the internet, you can experience some incredible work. Instagram, Flickr, Tumblr are superb sources of creativity.
