A wild wolf stares at me from down the hallway.

This famous photograph by Jim Brandenburg, a distant relative of mine, hung proudly in my grandparents' house. This image, along with the thought of wilderness, adventure, and capturing it with a camera, took hold of me.

I enrolled in the first photography class I could, an excellent course at Mead High School in Spokane, Washington, in 1999. It featured a fully equipped darkroom where we learned to develop film and make silver gelatin prints.

I continued my education at Brooks Institute of Photography in Southern California, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Visual Journalism. The courses that struck me the most were those that helped me master fine art printmaking. Even beyond my current curriculum, I often found myself in the darkroom, hanging out, learning, and creating. This was also a monumental time in photography, with technology advancing rapidly in the digital age. I began blending analog with digital techniques. I saved up for my own small printer while working as a lifeguard between classes. With the skills I learned, I calibrated and made my own custom monitor and paper profiles.

After graduation, fortunate timing aligned, and I had the honor of working for Jim Brandenburg as a Master Printmaker for his two esteemed galleries. Over the last two decades, my photographic journey has led me to showcase my works at premier national art festivals. I was awarded Best in Show Photography at the lauded Park City Kimball Arts Festival in 2022 and the acclaimed Sun Valley Arts Festival in 2023. My photography can be viewed throughout the exclusive Lodge at Blue Sky, awarded one of the '50 Best Hotels in the World - 2023', in Wanship, Utah. My portfolio boasts features in a variety of esteemed national periodicals, complemented by numerous write-ups in regional newspapers, highlighting my contributions to the world of visual storytelling.

If my collectors isn't happy, my dream stops. My business is likely quite different from most. What I do is not a job; it’s my passion and dream. Capturing moments in nature, viewing the world from unique angles, framing them as works of art. When someone purchases one of my pieces, they’re investing in my creations, directly supporting and contributing to my pursuits and this dream. Therefore, if my customers aren’t satisfied, my dream stops. Whatever you need, we will make it happen. If you’re not satisfied, we’ll make it right, no doubt. I cannot emphasize this enough and say it all the time: “Thank you so much for your interest and support of my photography. It goes so far in my continued pursuit of capturing inspiring imagery.” -pbb

I’m just a fan of really good pictures. I think I might have taken this line from a favorite instructor of mine at Brooks Institute, Joe Gosen. I recall him saying this during in-class image reviews. To me, it means a great photo goes beyond the assignment; it taps into something deeper. When asked what my style is, I like to leave that answer up to the viewer. However, I would say that my style is quite broad and always evolving. What I do try to focus on is the positive - images that inspire and uplift. I have seen my work move towards more minimalism and connecting with simplicity. I’m very fortunate to have grown up in a period founded on film photography that evolved serendipitously with the coming of the digital age. I blend film and digital photography in the ways that I capture the image all the way to creating the final print.
