About Me

     Colleen Harrison is a photojournalist currently based out of southern Minnesota and northern Iowa. Originally from Cleveland, she has always been fascinated by stories and the people and places that tell them.

     After getting her degree in photography from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, Harrison traveled to Europe and across the U.S. She has been a contributing photographer for the Greater University Circle Neighborhood Voice and the Plain Dealer newspapers in Ohio; the Saginaw News, Bay City Times and Battle Creek Enquirer newspapers in Michigan; and the Austin Daily Herald in Minnesota. She has also contributed photos to the Associated Press and other organizations and news outlets through freelancing. She's now the photo editor at the Albert Lea Tribune newspaper and Albert Lea magazine in Minnesota.

     Harrison has won several awards for her photo, video and written work from the National Press Photographers Association, the Michigan Press Photographers Association, the Michigan Associated Press, the Michigan Press Association and the Minnesota Newspaper Association.

     She now lives in Albert Lea with her behemoth of a dog and her judgmental cat, and is available for freelance work anywhere.
