Gave Hugh Jackman his first headshots. Dean took them himself after his wife had quickly come home after finding Hugh working, earning 10 dollars an hour then, and said, "Dean! This is Hugh and you're gonna do his headshots." Hugh knew who Dean was since he had just won an Oscar for Dances with Wolves; Dean wasn't too eager to take pictures of some guy who worked at the local gym but his wife insisted, almost knowing Hugh was going to be a big star.
