Thank you for checking out my work!
I’m John Magnoski, a modern day renaissance man that loves to photograph architecture, people, industry and the natural world. I specialize in capturing exquisite imagery for architects and interior designers primarily, but also for engineering and construction firms, luxury real estate companies, industrial clients, corporations, and creative agencies.
Based just north-east of Minneapolis and St. Paul, you will often find me spending my free time with my beautiful wife and our nine adventurous children (yes, 9). We enjoy exploring the outdoors, going to church, eating quality pizza, and playing around our little hobby farm.
With over 20 years of experience, I employ a unique blend of photographic disciplines and my natural method of capturing light and detail in the work I create. The resulting imagery is honest and distinct - with a clean, warm and tangible quality.
Whether your project requires a simple one-day shoot or is one that spans months, I can tailor my services to help you achieve your goals.
In short, I create refined imagery for your company that exceeds your artistic vision.
I treasure honesty, integrity, and the golden rule - applying these to every facet of my life allows me to guarantee you will love the work I create for you.
As my client, you can expect …
Great Communication // I’m obsessively quick at responding to phone calls and emails. In addition, I’m a planner and love to work with my clients to make sure every shoot goes perfectly. Like any successful partnership, great communication is key.
Stress-Free Shoots // Due to my penchant for planning and my understanding of the goals each project requires, shoots often go so smoothly that my clients are free to step away in order to handle their other more pressing business concerns without having to worry about the images being created.
Enthusiasm // I love what I do and cannot imagine doing anything else. This enthusiasm often shows when I’m on a shoot - like a kid on Christmas Day. With that said, don’t be surprised if at times I become very quiet and focused while working an image. It is often that I am so humbled to be doing what I love that I become methodical and introspective, resulting in me pushing myself to ‘level-up’ on each and every shoot.
Lightweight Process // Because I often travel for my projects, and with my 20 years experience, I have an approach to my shoots which allow me a very small footprint when working on-site. This makes the shoots lightweight, maneuverable, and quick with very low impact on the location (and people) being photographed.
Easy Image Reviews // During a shoot, you can review everything I capture using my wireless tethering system - if you desire.
Simple Online Proofing // I use a modern, fast, mobile-friendly proofing system for you to make images selections and comments. You can also share the preview gallery with colleagues and partners for their selective process. Your preview images are normally delivered within 7 business days.
Quality Image Processing // All captured images are initially processed to roughly 80% of final. The preview images you’ll see will have already been color balanced and corrected - helping to speed up the final selection and delivery process. Final images will be retouched and delivered in high-resolution for your specific needs in the file format of your preference - be they jpg or tiff..
