Dean Allan

Dean Allan is an award winning Professional Landscape Photographer based in the northern Highlands of Scotland.

With over 30 years experience as a Professional Photographer, I now spend much of my time running residential workshops and offering 1-2-1 private tuition days throughout the Highlands & Islands of Scotland.

Born as a son to a Professional Photographer, photography has been in my blood since early childhood. It is a journey and a passion which has provided me with so much worldwide travel and so much enjoyment, opportunities and experiences beyond my wildest dreams. It has given me a life which I am truly thankful for and now my enjoyment comes from seeing others develop along their journey. It’s my turn to give something back to the profession.

I enjoy teaching others the joys of photography, no matter at what stage they are at and encourage their development by not only opening their eyes but by feeling what it is they are looking at. If you can’t feel what you are looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your photographs.

I am currently working on writing a couple of e-books about Photography Locations in the Highlands and am just about to start filming for my own YouTube Channel which I hope to go live in late 2020/early 2021.

When not working, I am a keen follower of all sports including football, cricket (I have followed the English Cricket Team all over the world) and golf (once a scratch handicapper).

With my wife Sally, we also enjoy walking our dogs along the many world class beaches we have on our doorstep in the Highlands of Scotland or occasionally spending a couple of weeks on another type of beach, in the Caribbean.
