Thanks for checking out my bio. I'm the tall Irish guy with a funny accent you see at the studio and on location for many sessions the past two years. Dana and I run the business together and our polar opposite skill set makes our business balanced and pretty freaking fun! Together we raise our blended family with kids ranging from age six to twenty eight!!!! We love traveling to new venues, family cabins, meeting new couples, clients and enjoying so much wedding cake on the weekends!
I've had the opportunity to live in many places both here and abroad. I was born in Birmingham, England. Grew up in Dublin, Ireland. I attended Dublin City University where I received a Masters in Chemistry. I moved to the USA in December 1989. I've lived in Kansas City, MO. Thousand Oaks, CA. San Diego, CA. Fargo, ND. I'm now here in Minneapolis, MN and love it.
I spent my entire career in the biotech/pharmaceutical industry. I've run large and small Quality Control testing laboratories. So I'm a nerd or geek I guess. After 32 years it was time to hang up the "white lab coat" and step out of my comfort zone.
The creative person behind Dana Widman Photography is Dana. Her ability to capture the moment is amazing. Her attention to detail, her use of light and shadows is breathtaking. I handle the business side of Dana Widman Photography, all the bad jokes, organization of the many moving pieces of our business, second shooting and making my wife lots and lots of coffee.
