How it all began...

As the Brainchild of Kevin and Lisa Ophoven, Middle J Studios, Inc. was started in June of 2005.

The goal of Middle J Studios A.K.A {MJS} is to bring bold, soulful images to projects for advertising and editorial use. {MJS} is based out of Minneapolis, Minnesota and works all over the "metro" area, as well as where ever adventure calls. {We keep a special place in our minds for the 90028}

Have a challenge? No problem. 

At Middle J Studios we love a challenge. We welcome interesting locations and outside the box ideas. Crisp and clean to moody and dramatic-we can make it happen.

Who we are.

Kevin started shooting his first camera at age 8 and began finally pursuing photography professionally in 2005. During his development period, he shot what he called "photos of opportunity" like nature, landscape, and low light subjects. Now a well rounded shooter who's comfortable in available, strobe, or mixed light, he is always evolving and pushing himself to become better than he was the day before.

Lisa has been an artist all her life, excelling in painting and drawing from a young age. She is also no stranger to the world of modeling and has walked in fashion shows in several markets, along with being featured in magazines. She was also a hair model, sporting edgy styles. Lisa draws on her experience to bring her unique creative eye to the process. 

What we do.

Specializing in commercial photography, aimed at advertising. We love working with lifestyle and clothing, as well as automotive and transportation clients. If your next project calls for bold, energetic, or dramatic imagery-please consider giving us a shot. We'd love the chance to provide you an amazing experience.
