Presented by Brian Spears


I have been taking photos all my life and have gone all over the seven continents. It wasn’t till I went to Brooks Institute of Photography that I really developed a love for photojournalism and learned the craft from some brilliant minds. I then returned to my hometown and continued my photography at CSUSB, learning the classical style of art and becoming the head photographer for the school newspaper. After I left CSUSB, I continued as a contributor to the paper. I was then privileged to travel and see more of the world, including my favorite location, Antarctica, where I was challenged in how I photograph and see the natural world through a camera.

Today I continue to pursue my love of photography and press myself on concepts and projects I can learn from in an Anthropological way. In doing so, I have been showing my work worldwide, been featured in numerous magazines including National Geographic and Digital Photographer. Right now I am a freelance photographer for local papers and publications.
