Hello, I’m Joey Tichenor. I'm a commercial portrait photographer based in Minneapolis, MN who works between the midwest and the west coast photographing people. All kinds of people; famous people and not so famous people….shy people and CRAZY people...business people and party people. I love characters! My specialty is working on location; connecting with subjects quickly, generally thru humor. Which allows us to capture great images with real emotion in a seamless manner. There's generally a lot of energy and laughs on a typical JT photo shoot. My images are employed by clients seeking high-quality photography for public relations, advertising, lifestyle, agricultural and travel projects. I've had the good fortune to create art for Salesforce, Microsoft, Frameworks, Padilla CRT, IBM, ESPN, Comedy Central, Guitar Aficionado & GX Magazine, to name a few. As an artist my passion is documenting "found" characters & their lifestyles. I also really enjoy taking road trips to capture landscapes of the American southwest & long exposure night photos of stars-they’re RAD! When I'm not behind a wheel, a camera, holding a reflector or working on a computer, I enjoy restoring old Datsun's, watching my kids grow like weeds and a good happy hour with friends.
