DEANNE FITZMAURICE | BIO

For more than two decades, starting in the 80s, Deanne Fitzmaurice served as an eyewitness to sweeping change across the Bay Area of San Francisco, as a photojournalist for the San Francisco Chronicle.  As luck would have it, they were not quiet years.  The period was marked by the worst Earthquake in nearly a century, pivotal Supreme Court rulings about who we can love and marry with the blessing of the nation, significant wars involving the U.S., roaring climate change, Bay Area dominance in the world of professional baseball and football, and the ever-evolving face of America. 

Deanne’s work for the Chronicle garnered the attention of global publications and soon she was shooting and creating stories for National Geographic, Sports Illustrated, ESPN, and the best-selling Day in the Life book series.  Her photographic essay, documenting a young Iraqi war victim named Saleh, earned her the Pulitzer Prize. Nikon named Deanne an Ambassador and she swept the world of photographic awards, earning multiple top prizes from the leading contests, including Pictures of the Year International, AI-AP American Photography, Communication Arts, NPPA, and others.

Since her newspaper days, Deanne spends her behind-the-lens time shooting for the world’s most iconic brands, including Amazon, Apple, Nike, Google and Facebook, helping nonprofit organizations such as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Lucile Packard Foundation tell their stories, and working on personal projects to document moments and individuals who spark her enthusiasm.  

A highly sought-after storyteller, Deanne lectures at prestigious institutions including Stanford University and shares her insights and reflections on life, creativity, business acumen, and cultivating a winning mindset with corporate, industry, and student audiences worldwide. When she’s not on the move, Deanne and her photographer husband, Kurt Rogers, guide Think Tank, the cult camera bag business they co-founded.
