Testimonials - Dean Woolley Photography

At the Sheffield Steelers we need quality photo's every night. We need those important moments photographed whether it be a big goal, a big fight or controversial incident. Not only do we need those photo's taken, we need them delivered to us in quality on the night in order that our web site and media contacts have the most up to date information to go to press with. For the Sheffield Steelers to obtain the best possible press coverage we need the best possible photographs. Dean Woolley provides the Sheffield Steelers with outstanding and reliable coverage. He is not only a quality photographer but equally as important he is reliable and dependable. We would certainly recommend Dean to you - just not on our match nights - we found him first!


- David Simms, Media Officer, Sheffield Steelers Ice Hockey Club



I have employed Dean’s services with my two photography companies on many occasions (the first being back in 2012). From the beginning Dean showed his commitment and serious intent by ensuring he used only the highest level professional equipment. Turning up, as Dean does, with the best equipment available is extremely important but you still have to be willing to put the hours and dedication in to ensure that you get the highest level results. I have watched Dean continue to grow as a photographer and raise the bar both in quality and creativity over the years. It is no surprise that the only problem now is being able to book Dean as his services become more and more in demand. Finally, with Dean, you cannot only talk about his photography because his exceptional personality also demands a mention. I cannot express enough what a pleasure it is to work with Dean; he is not only the consummate professional (reliable and dependable) but also outstandingly friendly, thoroughly understanding and jolly good fun to be around.

Dean Woolley is a first class human being, who happens to take excellent photographs, as well. Journalistic platforms require a certain quality of image - and Dean, with little training, picked up the vibe almost immediately. From that promising start, he improved on every assignment we asked of him. What Dean lacks in the looks department, he makes up with his work. Thorough professional. Thoroughly decent bloke.

Dean is an outstanding photographer who produces work of the highest quality. He has recently come on-board as the official photographer for Ice Hockey UK, covering the Great Britain ice hockey team. Dean’s photographs are top class and, as media officer for IHUK, I send them all around the world for use in various media outlets. The BBC Sport website is one of a number of regular beneficiaries from Dean’s excellent photography . Not only are his photos of the highest standard but his ability to understand and use social media has helped get the GB message out to thousands of people. Dean has never let me down and nothing is too much trouble, whether it is at an international event or weeks later with a request for a photograph. His people skills are superb and he fitted into the IHUK and Great Britain set-up as though he had been with us years.


I would certainly recommend him. He is the best photographer in UK ice hockey and his skills have helped Ice Hockey UK to a new level in media coverage.


- Chris Ellis, Media Officer, Ice Hockey UK



I have worked with Dean over the last 3 years in a number of different capacities. As team photographer to the Nottingham Panthers, I approached Dean for advice, since that day he has guided me through my early years with the club with help on technical, practical and application matters. Dean has had a huge hand in shaping the work I produce today, always offering tips and tricks to help me keep improving. Dean is now currently mentoring me through the Team GB Ice Hockey programme, again his advice on workflow, timings, editing and use of social media has been exceptional. The work he produces is first class, he is a calming influence and very funny to be around and professional in every aspect.


- Karl Denham, Photographer



We could not have asked for a better photographer than Dean. From his meticulous attention to detail, to his warm and genuine personality, he delivered both professional and personal photos of our special day. He had the confidence to show his work to our guests during our wedding reception which was well received. His humour and positivity created genuine shots that we will treasure for the rest of our lives.

As a growing promotional company in boxing we need the best available images to help both us and our fighters become more recognised. Dean Woolley provides Coldwell Boxing with some superb images from our shows in Sheffield, which help us to try and achieve our goals, but on top of that he is reliable, professional and most importantly, a genuinely decent guy. I would happily recommend Dean to anyone, whether it be a sports event or a commercial event, as you are guaranteed exceptional images, which are available to use on any platform.


- Matthew Bevan, Assistant Media & Press Officer, Coldwell Boxing
