Hi! Thank you for checking out my website. My name is Shannon Storm and I am a professional freelance photographer. I got my start a few years ago when I was going to college and working at a local newspaper (The Star in Cambridge, MN) as a journalist. I started getting a lot of photojournalist assignments like taking photos of graduation ceremonies, parades, ribbon cutting ceremonies and other local events. I really enjoyed going to the events and taking the photos so I added a photography course to my schedule in college. I then started doing work freelance. I moved to Portage, WI in February 2008 and started working at Pierre's Portrait Art Co. in Madison, I gained more experience and additional training working there as an assistant photographer/2nd shooter and production artist. I moved back to Minnesota in January 2009. When I moved back I had a difficult time finding a good studio to work for, so I started doing photography freelance again. I do photos on-location at many different places. I am currently located in Hudson, WI and I service Wisconsin and Minnesota as well as destination weddings.
I enjoy taking photos of so many different things, but people are my favorite. I love capturing the emotion in what is happening in the photograph, which is why I really love close-ups, to really be able to see into the person's eyes and see exactly how they were feeling at that time! Weddings are so fun and special to photograph, I can't imagine very many other things that come packed with so much emotion!
Children are one of my specialties. I have 2 young boys of my own and I am constantly striving to find new ways to make it fun for children to have their photo taken so they don't have to fake their smile.
