My pursuit of creative expression started with graphic design about 20 years ago, when I spent my free time putting together tangible art pieces, collages as well as layouts in Quark and early Photoshop. That led me to photography which is something that could be emotive and constructive at the same time – bingo!
These days I produce photos and videos with and for creative people, thrill seekers and visionaries, as well as regular folk. I'm fascinated by people's stories and their unique perspectives. I find that there is so much to learn from many of the people I meet.
I live in the depths of the Philadelphia suburbs with my partner Jess, daughter Anika and two stubborn cats Pablo and Bobbie. I'm often getting my hands dirty in the garden and working on projects in the garage. I'm an avid consumer of podcasts and enjoy much of Spindrift!
Bryan was raised in northern New Jersey, just outside of NYC. He stayed in the Northeast for college, receiving a BFA in photography from The School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Bryan’s love of creative planning and detailed productions has led him to conceptualize, map out, and execute projects for publications, brands, and agencies all over the world. His resume ranges from editorial — he’s collaborated with the likes of The New York Times and Rolling Stone — to commercial, taking on clients such as Apple, Starbucks, Target, and Warner Brothers. On the weekends, Bryan can be found exploring nature with his theater executive wife, their two children, and the family dog, Bobby, a.k.a “Big Legs.” test
I was born and raised in Southern California, and after living in San Francisco for 14 years, I was called back to the diverse and delicious lifestyle of Los Angeles. I was living and working as a lifestyle, portrait, and dance photographer in San Francisco after receiving my MFA in Photography from the Academy of Art.
I often find the most mundane moments endearing and try to capture them when I'm making photos. I like telling simple but authentic stories and showing the beauty in people as they are – human, real, and imperfect.
