My name is Jean-Claude “J-C” Gureghian. I am photographer based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. OK, this is now my home but I’m originally from Beirut, Lebanon by way of London UK. While I have worked in the photography industry for nearly twenty years, I’ve also worked in IT and the franchising business.
I like to think of myself as a classic photographer with a modern flair. I use my computer skills to enhance the images to create my vision.
I enjoy getting to know my clients and learning about the project. From corporate events, aerial photography (using a drone), to portraits I’m able to fulfill a wide a variety of your photography needs.
I’m married to Karen Gureghian, a local gal who introduced me to the Twin Cities. We live in Plymouth with our two teenage girls.
Can you trust me for your project? Yes. Here's why. I’m a graduate of Brooks Institute of Photography - one of the top photo schools in the country. I started working as a photographer then became the photo editor of the University of Evansville newspaper The Crescent, which is where I developed my passion for the craft and learned to process film, I also worked as a photo assistant at the Fingerhut photo studio and was one of the original members of the 1st Best Buy web team in 1996.
I’m known for being dependable, I obsess over the details and I’m efficient (check out my reviews on thumbtack) with my work which translates into meeting your deadlines with a high quality product. I’m committed to a high level of integrity in my life which translates into your complete satisfaction with my work.
Will price project individually but generally I charge a $100/hour (4 hour minimum)
