Christy Dean is a commercial photographer specializing in editorial portraits. Originally learning photography in the early 90's to gather reference for fine art, Christy attended the Emily Carr Institute and then enrolled in NAIT's photography program in 1999. She has photographed everything from the oil sands and porcupines to yoga practitioners and British constables. She credits her genuine interest in the people's stories as the reason she's able to accurately portray her subjects in her photos. She’s hung out of a helicopter, driven a combine and done Improv (though poorly). Fun Fact: Christy is also a voiceover actor!

Christy lives in Edmonton, Alberta and is raising her 2 daughters with husband and illustrator Kelly Mellings.
