Local photographer receives Collector of the Year award

Don Dempsey, a commercial photographer in the tri-state area for more than 25 years, received the 2015 Collector of the Year award for Jean Elton Studio & Gallery, LLC. In a ceremony to take place later this month at his studio, the Jean Elton owners will present Dempsey with a certificate acknowledging the distinction.

A well-known photographer in corporate advertising, editorial and event specialties, who has photographed for well known publications and consumer goods companies (as well as the New York Giants), Dempsey owns more modern Jean Elton pieces from the last three years than any other collector. His friendship with the studio has afforded Jean Elton the privilege of using Dempsey to photograph numerous pieces from its Prism and Pristine gallery lines.

“It is a honor to be recognized by the studio for enjoying the work it produces so well. I’ve enjoyed decorating my home with Jean Elton objects of art,” said Dempsey of the recognition.

Lois Jean Barker commented, “We are delighted to make this first award to Don Dempsey. He has become a great friend and collaborator over the past few years.”
