This is one of the many promotional shots I took of my mate, Dean Benson. The photos are for his DJing career, which started a few years ago. Since then he has become one of Melbourne’s most talented and sought after progressive house and techno DJs. In the space of a few years, Dean has gone from small time gigs, to playing at Melbourne’s biggest and most recognised electronic music events. I have had the pleasure of following Dean’s career and watch him get bigger and better in the music scene, something that makes me very proud of him, and proud to be his friend.
I have known Dean for about 5 years now and it’s safe to say we are the best of mates, more like brothers. In that sense, this was one of the most nerve wracking experiences of my life, but also, probably the best one too. Being asked by someone so close to do something like this is a real honour! I enjoy the involvement and we work well together.
We didn’t end up using this series of photos for the end shots, but I thought it had a great mood to it, showing a man’s happy love of the music he plays to the crowd.
Dean currently plays regularly at Brown Alley and Miss Libertine as well as many other venues across Melbourne.Please see Dean Benson’s Myspace for more details
