I'm Brian, and I'm an outdoor photographer based in the San Francisco Bay Area. I originally hail from Pennsylvania, but have called California my home for the past eight years now. I previously worked as the social media manager for Light, a computational imaging company. I left Light in June of 2019 to pursue a dream of mine: to go on a seven-week road trip across the western United States and Canada. I am currently available for freelance opportunities both as a photographer and an assistant.

I enjoy photographing everything from people to products to weddings, and I have a giant affinity for nature, which I try to incorporate in some form throughout my work. I'm an Explorer for The Outbound, where I frequently contribute new adventures and articles about the outdoors.

When I'm not looking through the viewfinder, you can usually find me on a road trip, traveling, photographing deep space objects through my telescope, playing guitar, hiking, biking, or reading. I would love to help capture your next big moment or idea.
