PHOTOGRAPHY + ART DIRECTION
BASED IN MINNEAPOLIS
Welcome to my portfolio! I'm Shannon, a Twin Cities-based photographer and journalist. I graduated from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities in December of 2022 with a degree in journalism and political science.
During college, I worked at the St.Paul Pioneer Press covering St.Paul politics from City Council to elections to community events and homelessness. I also worked as the executive director of The Wake Magazine where I oversaw the production of the magazine from start to finish. Additionally, I worked extensively with Radio K as a podcast reporter for The Real College Podcast, a podcast host, producer and manager of The Listening Show podcast, as a DJ, marketing team member and concert photographer.
I've reported internationally with the International Women's Media Foundation in Thailand covering animal abuse in Thai tourism, a story that was later published in Mongabay. I also worked as a freelance journalist in Glasgow, Scotland taking photos at concerts and writing articles and doing multimedia work with The Glasgow Guardian and Subcity Radio.
I've had a lifelong passion for photography and music, and have had a dream since being a little kid of being a traveling music photographer.
