About Me





 Hello! My name is Michelle Quinn and I have made my home in the charming town of Durant, IA which is a short drive West of the Quad City area.

My love for photography spans 25 years from when I first enrolled in photography courses. It was in 2010 after my kids were older that I took my passion and made it my business. The age of digital and the huge advancements in image quality and processing software over the last few years have allowed me to take my photography and turn it into the art from I was always hoping it could become. Thanks to this progress you can expect classic imagery with some great conversions and subtle textures and design elements.

I am proud to say that I am an award winning photographer and have had my images published in Shuttermag. I am a member of the Professional Photographer’s of America and the Professional Photographer’s of Iowa and I have completed the following training workshops.
