Hey! I’m Dean Eastman.

I’m a Durham Region based Sports Action Photographer and the man behind the Camera here at Draft Eligible Photography.

I’m a dad to two awesome boys, Eric and Ryan. I’m married to my amazing wife Heather and we live in Oshawa, Ontario. 

Draft Eligible is a combination of my previous work in investigative photography combined with my love for sports and passion for capturing one of a kind moments. 

Sports and Action photography is all about timing. It’s about reacting. It’s about being in the right place at the right time and it’s about execution. These are qualities of an Athlete and of a Sports Action Photographer. Each sport has predictable and unpredictable moments. By knowing these moments you can anticipate the action.

I understand that these moments mean the world to the kids and to you. Moments worth capturing. This is their shot.
