about BD

Hi, I’m Brent! Thank you very much for considering me for your next portrait or headshot session. I’m not usually one to talk about myself, but if you clicked here I bet you were wanting to hear a thing or two about me and my work.

I was born and raised in the Twin Cities, and started my photography business while still in high school. I knew I wanted to do bigger things with my passion, so I headed to California to achieve a four year degree in professional photography. After school I headed to Los Angeles with a goal of photographing celebrities, and I ended up accomplishing it, but then realized it just wasn’t my passion, and LA wasn’t where I wanted to live the rest of my life.Minneapolis Photographer - BD Portraits Studio

Truth be told, I still have two lines of work with my photography. You’re viewing what I label my commercial portrait work, and I also have my commercial industry work at BrentDundore.com… feel free to check it out as well.

Minneapolis Photographer - BD Portraits StudioI’m one of the first to mention that, photographing big names, having a degree, or even having a nice camera does NOT make a professional photographer. That said something my education and experience gifted me, was the ability to adapt to all of my clients needs. Unlike most of the photographers in the area, my style isn’t confined to outdoor light. I can photograph you in a studio setting with controlled stylized light, or I can bring that professional lighting and camera equipment on location to give you that true editorial magazine quality… ultimately this skill also gives you the opportunity to get something unique as well.

Away from photography I have my Costa Rican husband JP, and my weimaraner dog Tress. You will meet Tress at your shoot… he’s very friendly, greets you at the door, then usually just lays on his dog bed while we shoot. Another big passion for me is doing DIY projects around the house, everything from small landscMinneapolis Family Portrait Photographer - BD Portraits Studioaping projects in the yard, to quite large projects like building a garage. I also am very proud to be part of the large crazy family you see here.


I truly enjoy working with individuals, companies, families, couples, and everything in between. My goal is always to meet and exceed your expectations of a shoot. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions you might have about shooting. I’m here to assist you in any way I can, and 
I look forward to working with you.
