University of Minnesota—Rochester

Recent work for the University of Minnesota—Rochester (UMR) taken at their downtown space, Pot Belly’s and 318 Commons housing.

Last week I spent a couple of days shooting some new images for the University of Minnesota—Rochester campus (UMR). From students in class at their downtown space to hanging out at Potbelly’s, walking historic Third Street and socializing in the lounge of 318 Commons. I’ve been doing campus life photography/college photography for more than a decade and it’s one of my favorite subjects to shoot. There’s just something about spending time on college campuses documenting these kids that is inspiring and gratifying for me. We had a few really awesome groups of students lined-up for this shoot and it was a beautiful fall day. All-in-all we got a lot accomplished, especially considering we only put in two half days. Below are a few of my favs. © Dean Riggott Photography

New Fire Station—Knutson Construction

Recently I photographed the new fire station being built on 14th Street NE near Circle Drive for longtime client, Knutson Construction. Although they usually have me doing architectural photography of their completed projects, occasionally they want “In-Progress” shots while a building is going up. And I’m not sure why, but I love putting on a hard hat and spending a couple of hours wandering around a construction site shooting whatever I’d like. There are always interesting lines, shapes, textures, colors, and characters. And as long as I get some good light, it’s always a fun thing to shoot. “I can’t believe I get paid to do this” is what’s usually going through my head as I climb scaffolding and lay in the dirt trying to get a cool perspective. I have to admit, it’s a pretty good gig.

So here are a few highlights from my time at the site of this new fire station. Hope you enjoy.

Dean is a commercial photographer based in Rochester, Minnesota. He works primarily in Minneapolis, St Paul, Mankato and Rochester, Minnesota, but is available to travel anywhere. Specialties include, architectural photography, agricultural photography, industrial photography and corporate photography.

Duluth Trading Company—Fridley, Minnesota

Highlights from my shoot for Duluth Trading Company at their new store in Fridley, Minnesota. This is an awesome company with some great products! One of my favorite new clients, for sure!

It was their grand opening of this new store, so they had me doing architectural photography, product photography, and general commercial photography, including their ribbon cutting and party/social hour. Hopefully down the road they will have me do some fashion photography for their womens catalog! Apparently the mens catalog is illustrated. Anyway, checkout all the cool stuff they sell here!
