Corporate Photography—Sterling Drug—Minneapolis, Minnesota

I was recently hired to do some corporate photography for Sterling Drug at their Minneapolis, Minnesota, training facility. Sterling Drug, also known as Astrup Drug, has been around since 1952 and has 17 locations throughout Minnesota and Iowa. This was the first of numerous shoots for their latest marketing efforts and rebranding. They had a couple dozen pharmacists there for the day, so we shot portraits of everyone in one of their training pharmacies. Below are just a few. 

“Astrup Drug, Inc has been providing its communities with their pharmacy needs since 1952 when it opened its first store in Austin, MN. While the practice has changed some over the last several decades, the principles put in place in 1952 still hold true today: patient care is our top priority.”

Harvesting honey at Somerby Golf Club

I’ve been doing commercial photography shoots at Somerby Golf Club in Byron, Minnesota, for quite a few years now, but I had no idea they kept bees and actually harvest the honey! How cool is that?! This is a very new thing for them, but it seems to be going well and something they will continue to do and build upon. So a few weeks ago I went out with Course Superintendent, Jake Kocak, and photographed him harvesting honey. It was something I had never seen done before and was really interesting, as you’ll see here in the below photos. And thankfully it was pretty cold out, and along with the smoke he uses, the bees were pretty docile. I had a couple land on me but was never bit. Jake had the full suit for protection, but unfortunately there wasn’t a spare, so I just took my chances! The things I do for my clients! Haha! 😉

Elcor Construction — Rochester, Minnesota

As an industrial photographer in Minnesota I get to photograph all sorts of cool projects. Elcor Construction has been a client for a few years now and has me photograph a few projects every year, all of which are a blast to shoot. Sometimes these industrial photography shoots are of paving or demolition projects and other times they are of site grading or installing underground utilities, such as sewage pipes and electrical lines. These highlights were taken at a few different residential and commercial developments they were working on in Rochester, Minnesota.

Ryerson metals supplier

I recently did a corporate photography shoot in Coon Rapids, Minnesota, for Ryerson, which is a metals supplier with 100 locations in the United States, Mexico, Canada and China. One of their marketing people flew in from Chicago for the day and we photographed new employees as they went through a very extensive and rigorous training program, that included softball practice, which is a big part of the company’s team building venture. Lastly I followed these same trainees as they volunteered at Feed My Starving Children by packaging food to be sent to hungry children worldwide. I love doing corporate photography and this shoot was no different. my assistant and I got them some great shots that they can use on the new Careers page they are building for the company website. Hopefully sometime in the near future they hire me to shoot at some of their production facilities where I can get some metal being cut, bent, polished and packaged! Industrial photography is one of  my favorite things to shoot!

“When you need metal, we’re your supplier. Over 65,000 products. Next-day delivery. Custom processing and fabrication. Ryerson is the go-to for all your metal needs. We set the bar high. Superior service starts with understanding your business. It’s our job to deliver the best value for your needs. It’s how we help optimize supply chains and lower operation costs. With approximately 100 locations, we are positioned to serve you wherever and whenever.”

Family Dentist Tree — Rochester, Minnesota

I recently did a commercial photography shoot for Family Dentist Tree right here in my hometown of Rochester, Minnesota. They were wanting a variety of images for a new website they are having put together by MLT Group, also here in Rochester, Minnesota, to promote their dental practice. So after a couple of meeting with Dr. Jacob Peters, one of the five dentists, we scheduled a couple of days to shoot where they would close the place down and make sure all of their employees were there for the shoot. On the first day we shot various groups, including hygienists, techs, dentists, administration, as well as one of everyone who works there. Then on the second day it was what we call the “working shots,” where the dentists recreated situations that are typical and used friends and family members to be the patients. These guys were a blast to work with and I think we got some really nice images. Below are a few samples.

Hodgman Drainage — Dodge Center, Minnesota

Last week I did my very first industrial photography shoot for Hodgman Drainage out of Dodge Center, Minnesota. Hodgman specializes in agricultural drainage, excavation, municipal services, residential services and directional drilling. They are a family-owned operation that began in 1982.

 

I have been a commercial photographer, including industrial photography, for 26 years and love when I get to photograph industrial projects, such as this. There’s just something about hanging out with a bunch of hard working men and women doing something that I wouldn’t have a clue how to do. And when there is big machinery and piles of dirt and rocks it’s just fun to get right in there and try to capture some cool moments in some awesome light. It’s also interesting to see what goes into projects like this residential development in Dodge Center, Minnesota.

 

Hodgman Drainage Company, Inc. has a strong tradition of quality work with superior customer service. Founded in 1982, our company has grown steadily due to our experienced, knowledgeable team of professionals. The combined years of experience in agricultural drainage, excavation, and municipal and residential services place our staff at an exceptional level in the industry.”

Silver Lake—Rochester, Minnesota, Photography

It was a beautiful evening, so I grabbed an Americano at Caribou and walked around down at Silver Lake with my cameras. I forgot how nice it is down there. I’ve only been a handful of times since my childhood when we’d frequently stop down to feed the geese. Rochester, Minnesota, has been home to thousands of Canada Geese for decades now, although the city has made some changes down at the lake to try and deter the animals from nesting and living in and around the lake. All those native flowers and grasses you see in these photos are part of that effort, which you have to admit look pretty cool. And as you can see, we do still have a few geese in the park. Just not the thousands we once had.

Green Bakery, Wisconsin

I recently photographed a couple of food products for Green Bakery out of Colfax, Wisconsin. I had previously shot a bunch of their bread and mix products, so was just asked to photograph these latest products. Everything produced in their bakery is not only 100% gluten free, but also free of dairy, egg, soy, corn, peanuts, and tree nuts. The bakery is also a vegan facility, with no animal products used.

“People who are predisposed to gluten sensitive are more likely to develop other common food sensitivities, especially to dairy, eggs, corn, soy, peanuts, and tree nuts. These ingredients are clinically known to cause a host of mild to severe immune system and digestive reactions, in addition to the more typical allergies. That’s why Green Bakery products include NONE of these allergenic ingredients.”

“The concept for the Green Bakery gluten free bakery was initiated by Dr. Adiel Tel-Oren, a medical doctor licensed in Europe but residing in the U.S. Dr. Tel-Oren is the founder and owner of Ecopolitan restaurant in Minneapolis, MN, which specialises in raw, vegan, and organic cuisine. As part of his medical practice, Dr. Tel-Oren is a functional medicine doctor who treats many patients that have gluten intolerance. While Dr. Tel-Oren believes a fully raw vegan diet comprised primarily of fruits and vegetables is the healthiest diet, he understands the human preference for cooked products, particularly in the bread family.”
