His photographic career has taken him to over 30 countries around the world. Contracting both malaria and leptospirosis, and nearly being robbed in the back streets of Nicaragua for 35 cents, which he negotiated down to 14, are just a few of his many stories. It also made him realize how lucky he is to be born, raised and work from small town Nebraska.
Brian’s excitement and energy toward photography are displayed in the speaking engagements and workshops he teaches. Although most proud of his Fulbright scholarship, he’s been published worldwide in newspapers and magazines. He first appeared in National Geographic Magazine in April 2015 after documenting a unique death culture in Indonesia.
