Dan Norman is a fantastic photographer for anticipating and capturing fleeting moments of action and thought. His skill at capturing the ephemeral qualities of live performance is brilliant.

“Dan Norman is a go-to photographer for the Guthrie Theater because of his warm and affable personality combined with his skilled ability to anticipate and capture moments of great emotion and story-telling. His ability to hustle for the shot while keeping a smile on his face makes for a truly positive business relationship.”

Dan’s work is absolutely stunning. Theater Latté Da knows the beauty and spirit of live musical theater and the exceptional work of theater artists in our community will be captured at the highest standard when Dan is behind the camera. He is a gifted photographer who is professional and reliable and it is a joy working with him.

Dan’s photos of our Opera Conference are among the best we’ve ever seen. He has beautifully depicted the conference in all its complexity while also capturing the spirit and energy of the event.

They’re BEAUTIFUL photos Dan, truly remarkable. It’s always great to work with you!

Myrtle Lemon, Jungle Theater

Once again your magic eyes have captured the essence of a show, perhaps at your first viewing. I have costumed several shows for Walking Shadow Theatre Company and have cherished each photo you have taken for those shows. You are truly gifted. Thank You!

Amy Hill, Costume Deisgner

WOW! Dan Norman captures some stunning images!

Dan Norman is among the very best photographers working in the Twin Cities today.  For the past 5 years I have relied on to Dan to create beautiful, poignant and breathtaking shots from both studio and live performances.

In the realm of TYA (Theatre for Young Audiences), his first-hand knowledge of working with youth is reflected in the photographs he captures. He understands what it means for young people to create theatre, and captures them in the moment as the true professionals that they are.  We would recommend Dan without hesitation, and will happily attest to his skills and artistic talent.

These photos are wonderful! You do an excellent job of catching action shots – which not all photographers do so well. Thank you so much!

Kirsten Stephens, Laughing Nomad Productions

It is always a pleasure working with Dan to photograph my events.  His talented work has captured my creations in a beautiful way, time and time again, catching both the details and the drama in his work.  He is a true professional

Ryan Hanson, BeEvents

Dan’s artistic eye is unparalleled. He truly understands the subjects he captures through the lens, and understands the stories being told in a theatrical setting. Dan’s instinct to capture fast-paced theatre is second to none, and it’s unheard of for him to not capture a moment we’re especially looking for. If you’re looking for someone to photograph theatre or fast-paced performance art, there is simply no other artist to consider than Dan Norman!
