Brian is a British/American photographer living near Stuttgart, Germany

I was born in England, moved to Germany to become American. I am still living near Stuttgart, Germany. I taught math at school and then at university but I have always been more interested in the processes of learning that in the content itself. I studied photography, then stopped, then started again, motivated by early retirement and my wife.

For most of the time I specialized in studio photography, then I slowly transitioned to work outside. 

My nude portraits of athletes, many of them masters at their disciplines, are morphed into figure studies and explorations in erotic and fetish photography, often with the same type of models: typically strong, fit, and older. The goal is to obtain non-exploitative, authentic portraits that stay away from cliché and in which the models are co-creators, collaborators in the on-going process of getting good images.

My main goal is to have my pictures hanging on walls or printed. In the past few years my works have been shown in juried exhibitions in Stuttgart, Germany; Budapest, Hungary; Glasgow, Scotland, and there are upcoming shows in Montenegro, France, and Rochester, NY. My images have also appeared in print in IoN magazine (issues 12 and 20), CarbonBw (issues 3 and 4) and ‘Mein heimliches Auge’ (#s 33 and 34), Format magazine and others.


    I’m a British/American photographer and recovering academic living near Stuttgart, Germany.

    I’m a people photographer whose work concentrates on the non-exploitative portrayal of the human body and explorations of intimacy, sexuality and aging.
