Welcome Dean ‘Deano’

Welcome Dean ‘Deano’ Paget to the SBT Ranks Professional Photographer Dean, brings Final Image Photography as the brand new media source to the UK’s No:1 Veterans Magazine All images courtesy of Final Image Photography and are subject to copyright We couldn’t be happier, here at the SBT Ivory Tower, to have a great photographer on board with us, Our old mate, Vince, although he will still be joining us on the BTCC Tour, is now elsewhere employed. So, let’s introduce Dean ‘Deano’ Paget to the team. And what a pedigree he brings. Not only is he a top class photographer, but he is also a veteran, fitting him right in with the rest of the gang. Dean 46, joined the 1st Bn, Duke of Edinburgh’s Royal Regiment in 1993 and saw active service in Northern Ireland, Bosnia and three tours of Afghanistan. During his army career he qualified as a driving instructor, eventually becoming his units Chief Driving Instructor and running the driver training cell for five years. He also became a Recruit Coordinator in the Army Careers Office, Oxford and Salisbury. During a posting in Chepstow, he also volunteered for Severn Area Rescue Mountain rescue and Lifeboat crew. A position he stayed with for seven years. If that wasn’t enough, Dean also found time to join the Army Motorcycle Racing Team. A passion which has also brought him trackside to some major motorcycle action including the BSB. (Hmm, I sense a job for him already with our friend in the BTCC). After 24 years in the Army, Dean finally arrived on ‘civvy street’. He has since sought a career in Media and PR. This has led to his own company, Final Image Photography, a business venture he runs with his wife, Trish. Dean and Trish live in Torfraen, Pontypool with daughter, Brylee (10). He also has two other daughters of 21 and 18. So now you know all about Dean, let’s welcome him fully to our world. Although, initially, Dean is coming on board as a photographer, I’m sure we will see a lot of him in our pages in the near future as he beds himself in with the team. He already has some great ideas for the mag. If you have an event coming soon and you would like some great photos then please get in touch with us to arrange for Dean to come along and do his thing.
