For those of you who don't know me, I'm Danielle: Studio Manager and Dean's Minder (when Helen's not around).
It seems there are a few special people who come into our lives to inspire and delight us. For me, Dean Mansbridge is one of those people. He is not only my boss, but a very dear friend. He is a constant reminder that it's possible to not only strive for, but achieve, a career built around helping others and pursuing your passion. In Dean's case, it is a passion for children and creating fun, vibrant, and meaningful images of Hobart families that stand the test of time.
Last weekend, Dean was recognised at the AIPP Tasmanian Epson Professional Photography Awards as the 2014 AIPP Tasmanian Family Photographer of the Year - for the fourth year in a row!
We are all immensely proud of his achievement and wanted to give you, our Zanzo family, the opportunity to share in his success too.
In the family category, Dean walked away with 1 gold, 3 silver with distinction and 3 silver awards. Awesome job!
Dean was also a finalist in the portrait category, earning 2 silver with distinction awards and 1 silver award for the following submission. You may recall Bazza, who featured in our blog post a little while ago, the adventurous little thing!
With so many exciting projects coming up soon, I can't wait to see what Dean creates over the course of 2014. Hopefully this time next year, we will be celebrating number five!
In the meantime, let's all give three cheers for Dean!!
Onya matie :)
