After a brief period as an Art Director, and a series of apprenticeships, he found his true creative calling in conceptual photography.

In addition to enhancing an image’s lucidity through the integration of his specialized props - De Deus loves to ‘get his hands dirty’ and creatively overcome obstacles by combining his specialized prop-building and photography skills. Francisco is a team player always excited to be a part of projects and to test new techniques. His goal is always to achieve the award-winning standard his work is known for. Francisco lives and works in Brooklyn and is always up for a challenge.
