HAS QUICKLY BECOME A HIGHLY ACCOMPLISHED COMMERCIAL, TELEVISION AND FILM DIRECTOR BY COMBINING HIS KEEN VISUAL EYE TO UNUSUAL AND POWERFUL SUBJECT MATTER. HIS UNIQUE STYLE AND SOPHISTICATED APPROACH HAVE ALLOWED HIM TO TRANSITION FROM A-LIST PHOTOGRAPHER TO WELL-RESPECTED FILMMAKER WITH AN ESTEEMED CLIENT LIST THAT INCLUDES THE HOME DEPOT, LAMBORGHINI, ANTONIO TETRO, CLINT EASTWOOD AND MARTIN SHEEN. DEAN IS RECOGNIZED FOR HIS INNOVATIVE AND UNIQUE STYLE OF AUTOMOTIVE PHOTOGRAPHY AND IS REGARDED BY MANY HIGH-PROFILE COLLECTORS THROUGHOUT THE NATION TO BE ONE OF THE MOST DISTINGUISHED IN HIS CRAFT. HIS ONGOING PASSION FOR THE STORIED HISTORY OF AUTOMOBILES SENT DEAN ON A METAPHORICAL VISION QUEST. IN 2012, HE COMBINED HIS TALENTS WITH THE KNOWLEDGE AND RACING EXPERIENCE POSSESSED BY HIS PRODUCTION PARTNER, RICK KNOOP, AND THE TWO MEN ESTABLISHED K&K PRODUCTIONS. THEIR FIRST COLLABORATIVE PROJECT IS A BEAUTIFULLY ENGAGING LOOK INTO THE PEBBLE BEACH ROAD RACES FROM 1950 THROUGH 1956 TITLED, 'RACING THROUGH THE FOREST' WHICH HAS BEEN SCHEDULED FOR A SPRING OF 2015 RELEASE. ILLUSTRATING THESE WONDERFUL STORIES THROUGH DOCUMENTARIES ALLOWED DEAN TO PHOTOGRAPH, INTERVIEW AND FILM SOME OF THE WORLD'S GREATEST CARS AND DRIVERS. DEAN IS CURRENTLY DEVELOPING SEVERAL DOCUMENTARIES WHICH INCLUDE PARNELLI JONES, BOBBY AND AL UNSER, MARIO ANDRETTI AND SIR STERLING MOSS. THE ABILITY TO CONTINUE CAPTURING AND PRESERVING THIS VALUABLE AUTOMOTIVE HISTORY IN HIS UNIQUE STYLE AND AESTHETIC VISION IS THE GOAL FOR K&K PRODUCTIONS AND THE LIVING DREAM FOR DEAN KIRKLAND.
