Yikmun Photography

Welcome.

My first camera was a little film spy camera disguised in a Good & Plenty box when I was 5. This was back in the mid 80's, when film wasn't digital. I begged my folks to develop the film of my "art". Unfortunately, do to my short stature and the vantage point I was shooting from, a lot of pictures came out as folks cropped at the waist and below. Basically butts all around. Shortly thereafter, my camera mysteriously vanished.

These days anyone can go out and purchase a camera but in order to take a truly great photo I believe you have to feel relaxed and comfortable. Unless you are used to having your picture taken, having the “spotlight” on you can be a vulnerable and sometimes nerve wracking experience.

As a member of the Screen Actors Guild and American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) since 2005, I’ve modeled for dozens of print ads and commercials for well-known companies such as Delta Airlines, Coca-Cola, Hewlett Packard, Ford Motor Company, and Autotrader.com. I've been also have entensive experience as a hand model, voiceover specialist, and as an actor with speaking roles in Real Steal (Twin Cities Corner Tech) starring Hugh Jackman and the remake of Red Dawn (Korean Delegate) with Chris Hemsworth.

I’ve taken my years of experience in front of a camera and merged it with my passion for capturing timeless images to bring you Yikmun Photography. I pride myself on making you feel at ease within minutes of meeting me and having the timing and expertise of my equipment in capturing the perfect shot at precisely the right moment.
