Production Photography

If your theatre company is in the Minneapolis / Saint Paul Minnesota area, you’re in for a treat. Production photography is where Dan Norman’s eye continuously shatters all expectations you might have.
“Dan Norman is a fantastic photographer, especially skilled at anticipating and capturing fleeting moments of action and thought. His skill at capturing the ephemeral qualities of live performance is brilliant.”
John Heimbuch (Co-Artistic Director of Walking Shadow Theatre Company)
Dan Norman shoots for many of the major theatre companies in the Minneapolis / Saint Paul area including the Children’s Theatre Company, Walking Shadow Theatre Company, The Ordway, The Guthrie, The Jungle Theatre, The Minnesota Opera, and Circus Juventas along with many others. Having an interest in theatre his whole life, his skill is not just in photography. Dan graduated from the University of Minnesota, Morris, one of the top 10 liberal arts college here in the United States, with a BA in Theatre and Scenic Design. Because of this, Dan knows the stage and has an amazing insight into capturing the best moments.
“Most peoples brains are hindered by separation, a left hemisphere (logical, scientific) and a right hemisphere (intuitive, artistic, passionate). Magically there is no separation in Dan’s mind. The inspiring beauty of his photos are matched only by the technical expertise it takes to create them.”
Joel Nelson (Photographer, Collaborator)
If you’ve been looking for a photographer to bring your production to life off stage, capture amazing memories, and provide photos as a sneak peek for your adoring fans, Dan Norman would love to hear about your production needs.
