Hi, I'm Bryan. I live in Hawaii and Slovakia. I met my wife on Kauai, and now we have our first child, a girl. My work has been featured in Landscape Photography Magazine, National Geographic Your Shot, Taste & Enjoy, Emma Magazine, and Atrium. Head over to the contact page if you'd like to work together, have your event captured, or if you're interested in having one of my images printed.
A bit more of my story...
I was born with a heart condition and at age fifteen I had open- heart surgery. Growing up with a heart defect, I did not participate much in athletics. Instead, I found myself drawn to music and photography. I’d learned the basics of loading film and composition from my Dad, but it wasn't until later in college that my knowledge was furthered. I earned a bachelors in Mass Communication and Journalism, during which time photojournalism courses taught me how to process black-and-white film in a dark room.
While I enjoyed photography, music took priority, and for over twenty years I wrote my own songs and learned audio engineering. That time spent dedicated to music laid the groundwork in becoming the full-time photographer that I am today. It nurtured my attention to detail and appreciation of subtlety. As much as I think I already know, I find myself continually learning the nuances that give art substance, so that I create meaningful work inspired from my own drive, instead of copying someone else's.
I appreciate that photography has a great balance of the technical and intuitive mind. To predict how an event will unfold, and then be patient and present enough to recognize the time for action. I experimented with many styles in order to have the best understanding and tools possible for what ever the situation requires. Those styles being: Studio, product, portrait, wedding, landscape, street, sports, and event photography.
Over the last 7 years, I've spent a lot of time traveling and practicing my craft. I have some exciting projects I'm working on that I can't wait to share. For the moment, I hope you enjoy browsing my portfolio of work here on my website.
Thanks for reading about me.
