Shawn Fagan


A graduate of South Dakota State University with a degree in Journalism and emphasis in Photojournalism, Shawn worked for newspapers and magazines in South Dakota, Utah and Iowa as a photographer before standing on the edge of that proverbial cliff.

Shawn took the entrepreneurial leap 13 years ago, when he and his wife moved to Rochester where they started their own company, Fagan Studios, specializing in portrait and commercial photography from their building in downtown Rochester.

Outside of running his businesses, Shawn enjoys coaching with Rochester Youth Soccer Association, volunteering with Ronald McDonald House, Boys and Girls Club, and LGR with the Rochester Chamber of Commerce. He recently joined a team of citizens in redesigning the Rochester city flag, because, well, why not?!
