Brian Leary

Brian Leary

Despite growing up in a house with a color darkroom, Brian was never truly bitten by the photo bug until he moved to the Northwest. After starting work at a large camera store in the Seattle area, Brian’s passion for all things photography blossomed. Landscape, wildlife, street photography, real estate, product, weddings and events; Brian has had experience in most fields, but sharing his passion for photography through teaching is the most gratifying for him.

As a full fledged travel addict Brian has had the opportunity to shoot everything from endangered rhinoceroses to the Dalai Lamas 50th anniversary of his exile from tibet. Through one on one, classroom and location workshop formats Brian enjoys imparting his technical and creative knowledge with anyone interested. Priding himself on in camera shooting techniques similar to the methods of film shooting, the majority of

Brian’s image is created in camera, not on the computer.
