Sara Rubinstein is a commercial director and still photographer based in Minneapolis, MN. Her work combines elements of authenticity, emotional range, beauty and thoughtfulness.


Sara graduated from Carleton College in 1998 with a degree in Biology and a minor in German. It took a 6 month stint as a computer programmer before Sara found photography, starting off as a photo assistant until transitioning to full time shooting in 2002. Over 20 years as a still photographer led to directing motion pieces focusing on authentic emotion and thoughtful story.


Sara is the mother of two children who appear throughout her personal work. Sara believes personal work inspires both her humanity and her commercial endeavors. Her passions include photography, riding horses, travel to remote landscapes, camping with her family in their 1977 VW Campervan, and she hopes to one day publish a collection of short stories.
