My passion for photography can be traced all the way back to my teen years. As a teenager, I enjoyed taking pictures of my horses, the family pets, and all sorts of wildlife. Later, when I became a mother, my subject matter was focused on photographing my beautiful daughter Shannon.

40 + years experience in the equestrian world gave me the perfect opportunity to blend my two favorite passions; horses and photography. I was able to not only enjoy riding but, I was able to photograph many horses from candid backyard shots to photos at the World Show in Texas.

Photography has always had an important and deep role in my life, but in the last few years, I have immersed myself into the world of professional imaging, both as a career and as a personal passion.

Through my lens I’ve learned to appreciate all the small things that make up the beautiful world we live in and appreciate the beauty in all things.
My photography is how I speak.  It allows me to show what I love and how I view the world.


My name is Brian and my wife Debra introduced photography to me around 2010. It started in Colorado while on vacation. We were photographing the mountains and some wildlife. When we returned to Florida, I was not doing much with it until Janurary of 2011 when she showed me a Bald Eagles nest. I then fell in love with birding and have not looked back. I like the raptors but will always photograph most any wildlife. It has been a wonderful experience and it is something that both of us enjoy together. I just love to get out there and scout for the birds, watch their behavior and habits.
