Mark Damon - The Pretty Reckless
"Nate Dean does an amazing job of capturing the energy of live performance in his photos. His background as a musician seems to allow him to immerse himself in the performance and anticipate the shot before it happens. I love his use of the black and white idiom. The contrast and nuance he gets in his photos have an "instant classic" look. Raw and refined all in one! Whenever Nate shoots a show, I'm 100% sure that he's going to have a ton of fantastic, totally pro photos full of character waiting for me to check out. An incredibly nice dude who's so easy to work with and a true talent that is destined for great things!"
Jeff Jenkins - Craig Wayne Boyd (Winner of "The Voice")
"I'm a huge fan of Nate Dean's eye for professional photography. He always captures the essence of a performance and his work ethic goes above and beyond. I always use Nate whenever I'm around the New England area!"
Mitch White - Drummer for Gary Allan
"Nate is awesome- we met through Craig Wright on the Toby Keith/Eric Church/JT Hodges "Locked and Loaded Tour" in 2011. Nate is a pleasure to work with, and he really captures the live energy of a show in his work. He has a way of catching the light in his photos, contrasting the dark, and this creates a really cool vibe. I look forward to working with him again, and I would recommend him to anyone!"
Will Denton - Tour Manager/Bandleader/Drummer - The Farm
"Nate Dean is the consummate professional. He is driven, passionate about his art, and a complete pleasure to work with. When he shoots our shows, he is so discreet as to be practically unseen, yet he consistently produces images that make you say "Wow." He even makes ME look like a rock star! I wholeheartedly recommend Nate to everyone - you will not be disappointed!"
Craig Wright - Drummer for Eric Church
"I met Nate Dean through Rich Redmond in 2011 on the Jason Aldean 'My Kinda Party' tour, and I've had him out to shoot the Eric Church shows as much as possible ever since. Nate always gets cool, professional, insightful photos of our live shows. You definitely feel as if you're right in the middle of the action when you view his work. Do yourself a favor, and get Nate Dean to photograph YOUR shows, too! You'll look like a star!"
Derek Williams - Guitarist for Jake Owen
"Nate has a great eye for a beautiful, candid, visceral action shot. He's like the Sports Illustrated Rock n Effin Roll Edition".
Rich Redmond - Touring/Recording Drummer (Jason Aldean) Session Drummer/Producer/Clinician
"Nate has a great eye and an exciting outlook for capturing exciting concert images. He is also a 'people person' and that's 90% of the equation! He is a pleasure to work with".
