Fun shoot at Jackpot Junction!

This week I had a two-day commercial shoot at Jackpot Junction in Morton, Minnesota. We had a big crew for this one, including Bobbi Seaquist (producer), Joey Tichenor (lighting guru), Alex Butterfield (assistant) and about a dozen models from various agencies in Minneapolis. There was a ton to coordinate and a very tight schedule to complete everything on the shotlist, but things went smooth as ever and we all had a good time in the process! As a commercial photographer I was thrilled to be doing a casino shoot and couldn’t be happier with my experience working with this crew. They were on top of things, organized, professional, reliable, prompt and a ton of fun! I’ll plan on posting highlights in the coming days!

Mayo Civic Center Grand Opening

I was hired by longtime client, Knutson Construction, to photograph the grand opening of the all-new Mayo Civic Center expansion, which took place on May 4, 2017. The celebration included a welcome and ribbon cutting ceremony, guided tours, a video of the progress, live music by Annie Mack, food, beverages, games for kids, face painting, fireworks and so on. The weather couldn’t have been nicer and it was a great evening for all who attended. The Mayo Civic Center is named after William Worrall Mayo, who is the founder of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.

Construction on the Mayo Civic Center expansion began in March, 2015. The expansion will be substantially completed and its new venues opened in April, 2017. The expanded Mayo Civic Center features:

•  Minnesota’s largest ballroom, with seating capacity of more than 4,000 theatre-style or 2,000 banquet-style.
•  The capacity to accommodate two 1,000-attendee events simultaneously.
•  Stunning pre-function areas with views of the Zumbro River and downtown Rochester.
•  More than 200,000 square feet of flexible meeting and exhibit space.
•  A brand-new banquet production kitchen.
•  The new Riverfront Plaza, which can serve as a multi-use gathering area or outdoor reception venue.
•  Venues designed to accommodate sophisticated production, AV, and wireless service needs.
•  A new interactive public art sculpture by Po Shu Wang that will be located outside on the southern side of the center and is expected to be installed in May.
•  Coming soon – newly renovated and acoustically enhanced Presentation Hall.

As an architectural photographer I was also asked to shoot some interiors and exteriors of this awesome project for Knutson Construction, who was the general contractor. I will be posting highlights from that shoot in the coming days, so you can see just how beautiful this building is!

The Great Soap Company!

This past week I did a shoot for an old friend, Lisa (Austin) Janet, from way back in elementary school who now has a small, independent, soap company based right here in Rochester, Minnesota. These are beautiful and incredibly awesome all-natural bars of soap with ingredients such as cherries, lavendar, tapioca pearls, poppy seeds, olive oil, cocoa butter, bees wax, tea tree oil, oatmeal, coconut oil, rosemary and so on! And their prices are incredibly reasonable, especially compared to many of their competitors. As a commercial photographer based right here in Rochester, Minnesota, this was a perfect fit for me, so I offered to photograph Lisa’s soap products for her. We set-up in my home studio and used an old, rustic, coffee table I have in my living room, which was perfect for these hand-crafted soap products! My daughter, Ava, was home sick from school, so she had fun helping us out and even arranged the soaps with the lemon drops all by herself! It was a good time and we got some great images of her products, which are now featured on her website:

Historic Third Street in Rochester, Minnesota

We recently had a beautiful spring day in which I found myself walking around on historic Third Street in my hometown of Rochester, Minnesota. There were people out and about going to pubs, restaurants, antique shops and so on, and it made for some great opportunities to get some Rochester, Mn, photo stock; something I’ve specialized in for more than 25 years. I doubt there is anyone on the planet who has more images of this city that I live. Here are some of the highlights from last week, including The Tap House, Grand Rounds Brewing and John Kruesel’s Antiques and Auctioneering. © Dean Riggott Photography

Mayo Civic Center in Rochester, Minnesota

The all-new Mayo Civic Center in Rochester, Minnesota is almost complete and will open to the public later this month! I photographed this project for longtime client, Knutson Construction, who was the general contractor.  This was an $84 million dollar expansion that offers 200,000 square feet of flexible meeting and exhibit space, including a 38,586 square foot ballroom that holds more than 4000 people. It’s getting to photograph cool projects like this that makes me love being an architectural photographer. I’ve been shooting architecture for Knutson construction for around 12 years now and am always impressed with the work they do and this one was no different!

Pure Humidifier shoot in Minneapolis, Minnesota

In late December Joey Tichenor (http://www.joeytichenor.com) and I spent a couple of long days at PURE Humidifier in Chaska, Minnesota, photographing parts, purifiers and people for their new marketing efforts. I love industrial photography, so this one was a fun, unique and challenging experience. We set-up a studio in their workshop where we had four Profoto lights with various light modifiers, a Nikon D810, a variety of lenses and were tethered to a MacBook Pro using Profoto software. After a day and a half of shooting products and parts I then spent the remaining time walking around the shop getting cool shots of employees at work doing everything from electrical, welding, cutting and painting to boxing, shipping and even a few portraits. It was a very productive shoot and the client was thrilled with the results!

PURE Humidifier has been providing quality humidification products for industrial and commercial applications for 24 years. Their versatile, efficient and reliable Steam Injection, Steam Heat Exchanger, Electric and Gas Fired Humidifiers, backed by exceptional customer service, guarantees customer satisfaction. Clients can choose from their complete line of easy-to-install, low-maintenance humidifiers and accessories for optimal air quality and relative humidity control for their unique environment.

New “Product” portfolio on website.

I now have a “product” portfolio on my website. I’ve been meaning to add this product photography gallery for years, but just got around to getting it done. You will find examples of both studio work and on location work. Everything from pizza shops, furniture and sunglasses, to cheese, clothing, medical devices, plumbing and computers! Both big and small, we tackle it all!

Pizza Luce in Mpls—St Paul

I was recently hired by Pizza Luce in the Mpls-St Paul area to photograph their seven twin cities locations for promotional materials and a new website they are about to launch. Having specialized in commercial and architectural photography in Rochester, Minneapolis, St Paul, and elsewhere,  for more than two decades, this was exactly the sort of thing I love to do. Plus, Pizza Luce was a favorite late-night eatery when I was in my twenties and spending a lot of time in downtown Minneapolis! And now they have grown to seven Twin Cities locations, as well as one in Duluth, Minnesota. Dealing with the logistics of seven locations and the time of day they are busy, when they get the best light and where they are located, was a ton of work, but in the end it all came together nicely.

Architectural photography of MnDOT in Rochester, Minnesota

I recently did some architectural photography for longtime client, Knutson Construction, of the addition to the Minnesota Department of Transportation office here in Rochester, Minnesota. This is the third phase of the major upgrade of the MnDOT and State Highway Patrol facilities at 2900 48th St. N.W. Knutson added a new 911 call center, a new data area, a lab to test road materials as well as conference rooms and offices to the older MnDOT building. They also installed solar panels and a new mezzanine.
