Christian Begeman was born in Watertown, South Dakota. At an early age his family moved just north of the Moreau River between Dupree and Isabel SD. After graduating from Isabel High School, he attended the University of Sioux Falls. That is where an introduction to photography class started him down the road to his current passion for making photographs. Today, he works for Midcontinent Communications in Sioux Falls. In his free time you will find him driving the back roads of South Dakota looking for new scenes to shoot. Christian is also a regular contributor to southdakotamagazine.com where he writes a photography column.
