Brian received his first 35 mm film camera at 13 which inspired him to build his own darkroom in a basement closet. Part hobby and part therapy, photography is his greatest passion informed by a lifetime working in the arts. And teaching photography to hobbyists is clearly a talent he also possesses leading to his extraction of joy and self-fulfillment.
Refusing to pick a specific genre of photography Brian instead indulges himself to photograph anything that grabs his interest. Anyone who frequents restaurants and businesses in the Newburgh and surrounding community knows Brian, either having met him or seen his photographs. He is widely appreciated for his ability in capturing the majestic beauty of the Hudson River and the mountainous Hudson Highlands. That said, Brian can often be seen photographing skateboarders, dancers and the many fascinating people in the Hudson Valley.
