The Photography Guild by Shawn Brezny


I am Shawn Brezny, photographer and author behind The Photography Guild.  I am documentary photographer with a focus on street photography in the Twin Cities, Minnesota area.

Photography has always been a passion of mine.  As a kid I had all kinds of cameras in our home and I loved to capture small moments in time of family, friends and special events.  I started with film cameras, went to digital, and now have gone back to mostly film photography.  I love the look and feel of what film can bring out in my photography.  Film has texture, grain and mood that I find very special and unique.  Film photography allows me to work with my hands and get my hands dirty in developing my film, the way the old masters used to do it.
