Dan Mutterer is an award winning photographer whose work has been featured in numerous publications in his home city of Brooklyn Park. With a history in video production, Dan approaches photography with an appreciation for the story that is told as the images bring the audience into an interaction with his subject matter. Having photographed homes from the humble and small to the immaculate and large, products for etsy sellers and national companies, and headshots aplenty, Dan's experiences have taught him how to showwahtever is in front of his lens in the best possible light through his images.
Every photo has to be crafted around the subject, and there is no single formula that always works. I enjoy taking the basic "ingredients" that are foundational in photography and finding the small tweaks that will take a picture from basic to wow.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
One of my recent projects was for a jeweler, and it was my first time working in the genre. I learned a new set of techniques and employed new software to create images that showed the exquisite details of the antique and vintage pieces for their website and a billboard campaign.

A fun fact about this photographer
My first camera was my grandfather's Sears SLR. I had no idea how to use it or what anything in the case was for. I sold it to National Camera, and I would pay 10X what they paid me then to have it back now.
