Capture Minnesota Book Leaps Off Pages Onto Your TV

The creative and breathtaking photos captured by Minnesota photographers were first featured on the Capture Minnesota website, then published in a fine-art book and will now be highlighted in a television special airing on tpt 2.

Highlighting the work of local photographers featured in tpt's Capture Minnesota book and website, Capture Minnesota airs Monday, August 20 at 7 p.m. on tpt 2.

Join tpt’s David Gillette as he meets and interviews a few Minnesota photographers at the spots where they took their winning photographs. One takes photographs from rooftops in downtown Saint Paul, while another documented a couple’s "trash-the-wedding-dress" ceremony at the Minnesota State Fair. How far would you go to get the right photo?

For one woman, getting the picture she wanted meant asking someone to drive under a bridge, at just the right speed, in order to get the right taillight reflection. For another photographer, turning off the beaten path—her everyday route—to visit a barn that intrigued her meant she got an amazing shot.

Listen to photographers’ thoughts, techniques and tricks; discussions about what makes a photograph into art; and view dozens and dozens of gorgeous photographs.

If you still want to be a part of Capture Minnesota, the website is still actively accepting new photo submissions, votes and comments. And we've just started accepting entries for a second book!

Capture Minnesota has become the best place to see amazing Minnesota photography and connect with Minnesota photographers and photo enthusiasts. Finding the best of Minnesota in photos remains Capture Minnesota's goal.
