In 1982 I met Richard Noble, the noted director and photographer. He gave me my first break in photography by hiring me as his assistant. Working with Richard, I developed a deep appreciation for the art of photography. I worked with him on the Virginia Slims cigarette advertisements, Clint Eastwood films, as well as photography shoots of celebrities and athletes, such as Bo Jackson for his autobiographical book.

At Richard’s encouragement, I moved to New York City in 1986 to assist E.J. Camp for Rolling Stone Magazine, Richard Imrie for Harper’s & Queen Magazine, and finally Annie Liebovitz for Vanity Fair Magazine.

The Deano Mueller Studio was created in 1989 with an emphasis on editorial and fashion photography for magazines such as Mademoiselle, Seventeen, and DNR. We also produced major advertising campaigns, album covers, as well as music videos and commercials. We specialize in large format (4x5) and digital photography.

Whether in the studio or shooting on location, our team can make artistic and timeless photographs for you. Our goal is to listen and work with you as a team. With our experience and art of photography, we satisfy our clients to make their visual expectations come true.
