Mapping Dreamboats Collective
Dreamboats Collective is a photo agency specializing in fine art and editorial work. The collective was founded in 2008 by Adam Golfer, Joe Leavenworth, TJ Proechel and Daniel Shea, four friends who attended the Maryland Institute College of Art. Originally, DBC began as an image blog and “studio space,” for the members to keep abreast of one another’s personal projects and professional assignments. The website has since expanded to provide comprehensive portfolios by each artist in the collective. It continues to host the group blog, and promote affordable print editions, new thematic features, and exhibition news. In 2010 Dreamboats Collective expanded with the addition of a new fifth member, Jake Stangel. The five members run the project collaboratively and are based across the U.S. in New York, Chicago, and Portland.
