More about the Dedication Campaign

The Dedication Campaign is showcasing the dedication and personal stories behind professional photographers who utilize Capture One in their work. Capture One is the industry’s premier RAW conversion and image editing software. In a series of videos designed to enable creativity and inspire photographers of all backgrounds to enrich their editing process, the Capture One Dedication Campaign gave voice to three photographers across dance, food and city scape disciplines.

Featured photographers include:

  • Barcelona-based dance and portrait photographer Dayron Vera, who took up photography following his ballet career as a way to stay connected to the art of dance
  • Patricia Niven, a high-end food photographer in London who strives to create personality in her creative and colorful still-life images of food
  • New York photographer Humza Deas, a former skateboarder who gets his inspiration from wandering the city streets and capturing its architecture from a unique perspective

Each photographer gave a glimpse into the world of his or her unique discipline and told the story behind one of their most striking images, including how they used Capture One to achieve their best work during the image editing process.
