Welcome to Dean Thorpe's web site
This web site was mostly created as a free photo gallery for Dean Thorpe's (that's me!) photography collection.
This is just a small selection of my photographic work, I have about a quarter of a million photos on my computer at the time of writing this, the majority of which are not even sorted, I just love getting out and taking photos!
Am I the world's best photographer? No, I do wish I was a bit better at some aspects of photography. If a photographer ever tells you he knows everything about photography then never let them take your picture, photography is always changing, evolving, improving, adapting and so that's what we as photographer's have to do too!
Do I think I am at least a good photographer? Hopefully yes! I get a lot of good feedback on my photos and have done well in plenty of competitions over the years, from small local photography groups, to big national competitions up against some of the best photographers in the world.
These days I don't enter many competitions and the main person that I want to be impressed by my photos id myself! This may sound a little narcissistic, but after years of worrying what others think, I now just concentrate on photographing things that interest me, if others like my work then that is a bonus, just not a priority any more :) Plus my biggest and most painfully honest critic has always been myself, making me like my own photos is no easy task!
Also on the site you will find other fun and interesting things created by me, such as lots and lots of Dean Thorpe's poems, a story I wrote years ago, tutorials, my thoughts on various issues etc. Feedback is always very welcome, feel free to email me your comments, but please keep them constructive and useful! Saying you think my poem written about whatever is a load of crap helps nobody and will probably just be deleted! Saying you think that poem doesn't make sense, doesn't rhyme perfectly, should have included something about a certain aspect of the subject matter or other advice like that helps me improve this site and makes it better for you.
New Look Site
This web site has had many different versions over the years, always growing, ever expanding, changing names a couple of times starting off as Psyonic Dreams, changing to Aspex Design and then in February 2016 I decided to basically scrap it all and start from scratch! That was a scary move, Aspex Design got plenty of visitors and was quite successful, but my life went through some huge changes then and the old site was part of my old life, so like me it needed to start off with a clean slate and a fresh beginning to hopefully become something better.
Important, please read!
Any logos, designs, characters etc. that are in photos remain copyright of their owners and my photos are purely here on the Death Prone Images web site to help and entertain people, not to make me a single penny of profit.
