The Refinery

The Refinery is a photography studio unlike any other. Based in the historic Railway Exchange Building in Downtown Milwaukee and run by award-winning photographer Jessica Kaminski, the core goal/mission of the studio is simple: Rethink Portraiture. The Refinery was created to be a unique creative environment curated to meet clients’ varying photographic needs. Whether it is headshots for career advancement, highlighting the power of your team, celebrating an important milestone or creating a fantasy persona to inhabit - The Refinery will work with you to create not only a portrait to love, but one that is a timeless representation of your best self.

Working with Jessica, clients are encouraged to think outside the box with their sessions and with the help of The Refinery team, take ideas up a notch to create professional and original images.
