About The Photographer

My name is Ann O’Neill Deal and I am the owner of Candid FX Photography. I am an award-winning Certified Professional Photographer (CPP) working toward my Master Photographer degree. I have a background in animal behavior and a BA and MA in Anthropology with a specialization in Primatology (study of nonhuman primates). My wonderful husband and I share our home with our three dogs and Maine Coon cat. Our lives pretty much revolve around them!


I grew up in Canada, though I was born in the UK and as you can tell from my name, I am of Irish ancestry. After many years working in academia and research, I moved to California in 2009, where I established Candid FX Photography and married my awesome husband. Then in 2015 we moved to Houston, Texas. I am excited to say that as of January 2019 we are relocating to the beautiful city of Austin, Texas!


Thanks for dropping by.
