Joe Szurszewski Photography accepts assignments throughout Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Dakota, North Dakota and beyond. When you need top-notch editorial, commercial, portrait and photojournalistic photography, take advantage of Joe's experience and professionalism.
Joe shoots assignments ranging from 'environmental portraits' that bring out the unique qualities of the subject, to documenting the travels of national politicians, to catching the energy and spirit of a wide range of performing arts. What's common to all of these are Joe's drive, passion, and enthusiasm for photography, and clients who are delighted with the resulting images.
Since high school, when he took a portfolio of his pictures to the local daily newspaper (circulation 40,000) and landed a spot as a regular freelance photographer, Joe has been motivated to make photographs that inform, move, compel and explain.
When you hire Joe, you get more than just a photographer, you get a business partner who makes sure you receive exactly the images you need, when you need them, to tell the story you want to tell. Joe's background in technology and computers (Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics and Master of Science in Computer Science) means that he is, quite frankly, a technology geek. Joe stays ahead of the curve in photo retouching techniques, cameras and imaging technology, and all things digital, not because he has to, but because he really loves this stuff.
Whether you need expertly retouched finished files or raw images, archival-quality fine art prints or proofs, Joe is happy to supply them. He can also provide you with eye-catching electronic presentations, from online galleries, to DVD slideshows, or even interactive panoramas for an immersive experience.
Joe's 12+ years living in the Minneapolis St. Paul Twin Cities metro area, coupled with his "go the extra mile" approach to serving his clients, means that he has the knowledge and the commitment to scout locations, work with local vendors, and efficiently tie up the many loose ends that can be involved with a photo shoot.
Joe's work has been published in the US and internationally in magazines, newspapers, calendars, annual reports, catalogs and brochures, and has also been featured on the web, on television, and on billboards. What ever your photography needs, Joe looks forward to working with you and providing the fresh, dynamic, and thoughtful photography you want.
