Commercial Photography

Commercial Photography in Minneapolis

Commercial Photography MinneapolisMediapolis specializes in commercial photography. For instance executive portraits, people at work, events, products, real estate and architecture.

For people, we can shoot in either a documentary/candid style or formal setup. We have a portable studio with lights and background that we setup at your location for your convenience. Typically for studio shoot, we need an hour setup for our equipment before the first photograph is taken. We make the subject feel relaxed and comfortable.

The photographer shoots the products on site or in a studio setting using for example backgrounds like infinite white. For small products, we use a macro lens that captures the finest details.

Regardless of the size or location of your event, we’ll make some great images. We’ll use our lenses to take closeups and wide shots to tell the story of your event.

Real estate and architecture photography is commonly used to sell, document, and advertise buildings, homes, and spaces, consequently we capture the angles that are aesthetically pleasing and accurate representations of the structure.

Use a professional photographer to capture images for:

  • Publications
  • Annual reports
  • Marketing brochures
  • Image pieces
  • Advertising campaigns
  • Websites
  • and other media

Whether you need images of people, products, real estate, architectural, industrial or medical products or services, let Mediapolis tell your story in pictures.

Things We Consider Before We Start Taking Pictures

  • Location scouting
  • Logistics
  • Image background
  • Subjects (who, how many, full length, 3/4 head and shoulders)
  • Style of lighting
  • Color considerations
  • Clothing choices
  • Make-up
  • Test professional photography equipment
  • Back up equipment

We talk to you beforehand so that the message or feeling of the image is conveyed in the final product.

Mediapolis uses state-of-the art software and hardware to enhance the final image therefore we can deliver the finished image files in multiple formats for web, print or display.  The files delivered via download or physical disc or prints therefore give you options for publication.


Document your construction project with the magic of a time-lapse video. Time-lapse photography allows your viewers to see before, after and everything in-between. A project that took days, months or even years to construct can be seen in a matter of minutes.

Combine time-lapse footage with a narrative or interviews and graphics to tell a compelling story about your construction project.

Multiple time-lapse cameras can be deployed to show additional angles or detail that the main camera does not see. To save money, these cameras can be deployed latter than the main camera to show the peak of construction.


The time-study method involves taking photos from exactly the same position at different times. By slowly cross-fading between the photos in post-production the appearance of long term time-lapse is created. A construction project that takes months to complete, therefore a photographer only takes photos only when significant change takes place.

Panoramic photography

Panoramic photographs are a series of landscape images that are stitched together to create a large photograph. These images create dramatic views because they have an aspect ratios of 4:1 and sometimes 10:1, covering fields of view of up to 360 degrees.

Aerial Photography

Aerial photography is highly sought after therefore we have many options for capturing including from either a drone, helicopter or airplane.
