BEHIND THE LENS
Hello! My name is Jared Fessler, (he/him/his) and I am an Iowa native, now residing in the Minneapolis, MN area. I attended the University of Northern in Cedar Falls, Iowa where I received my Bachelors in Marketing and Communications, Theatre and Music. Additionally, I received training in BFA musical theatre from Millikin University in Decatur, IL. I attained my Masters in Public Administration & Organizational Management from Ashford University in Clinton, Iowa. I also have a corporate day job with an IT training, certifications, and careers pathways program.
I have always loved photography and owe the start of my photography journey to my first job out of college. I also have my certificate in Photography, Graphic Design, Event Planning, & Interior Design. I still attend photography workshops, classes, & wedding vendor events. I also enjoy collaborating with other photographers.
Outside of photography I enjoys running, yoga, architecture, movies, music, dance, theatrical productions, playing guitar, concerts, museums, art, and vintage shops, puppies, & original coffee shops. I am also a pageant judge in the Miss America pageant system. I have had theatre opportunities at local theatres across the Twin Cities.
