Dennis is an established commercial and portrait photographer and the owner of Ink & Fixer Studios, a content creation studio located on the bustling north end of Oakland's Lake Merritt district. In a phrase, Dennis specializes in working with people; whether he’s guiding a model through lifestyle shots, in pre-production with an AD, or musing over selects with the end-client, Dennis prides himself on clear, concise, and amicable communication that reflects top-tier professionalism: he’s quick with a status update, yet mindful of overdosing collaborators with unnecessary technical jargon and trivial details. Dennis’ images have been described as earnest, alive, thoughtful, and sincere. Dennis strives for an aesthetic that he refers to as “polished journalism”. According to Dennis, “Nearly every image I make with a human subject is posed, but if I’ve done my job well, it doesn’t look or feel like it… Whether you need a portrait or visuals to communicate your brand, anyone looking at your images needs to feel something real…People have a nose for insincerity, and I avoid it at all costs… ” A Bit of History Dennis started his photographic career as a student studying at UC Santa Cruz then as a photojournalist covering arts and entertainment. In 2010--after a nearly ten year detour through politics where he served as a Congressional Aide and political professional--he returned to photography full bore and hasn't looked back. After some back and forth between Boston and New York, Dennis has settled in Oakland where he remains committed to its thriving art scene and served as Event Director of Oakland Art Murmur's First Friday. Dennis is a graduate of UCSC with degrees in Pre-Law and English Literature.
