Getting to know the work of dozens of music photographers working locally over the past couple months has been a joy. After receiving nominations for more than 100 shooters for the best music photographer in the Twin Cities, we narrowed it down to 20 finalists. We profiled them and got a lot of professional advice, and then put it to the people for a vote.
Over 3,000 votes were cast, and now we're ready to reveal a winner.

When reached today, DeGross noted, "Dude, I'm so stoked right now!"
Thanks to all of the finalists for submitting your work and providing insight into your craft. The finalists were determined by looking closely at the portion of a photographer's work that relates to music events and musicians. Some of these photographers are/were employed by City Pages, but did not participate in our discussions regarding finalists. We are blessed to have a rich community of gifted photographers in the Twin Cities.
